Oakley Design Previews Rear-Wheel Drive Lamborghini Aventador LP760-2

Oakley Design is a British vehicle tuner that specializes in eeking out that extra bit of performance from high-end cars, typically from Porsche. More recently, however, the company has expanded into the world of Italian exotics, recently turning its sights to the stunning Ferrari 458 Italia.

Now Oakley Design has announced what potentially could be its most ambitious project yet–tuning the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.

Pictured here are the first teaser images of the new Aventador ‘LP760-2’ from Oakley Design. No, that’s not a typo. The LP760-2 is expected to feature an output of 760 horsepower, all of which will be channeled through the car’s rear wheels. Think of it as being an over-the-top LP550-2 Valentino Balboni Gallardo.  

The extra power will be courtesy of a retuned ECU, high-flow intake and a sports exhaust system. The tuner has a performance target of 760 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque.

To go along with the extra power, there will also be a series of weight saving mods. First and foremost will be the elimination of the Aventador’s standard all-wheel drive system, which should net a saving of about 187 pounds.

Other lightweight components will include the aforementioned exhaust system, which thanks to titanium construction should net a saving of around 66 pounds. There will also be new forged alloy wheels that should save nearly nine pounds from each corner–19-inches in the front and 20-inches in the rear.

Finally, a number of carbon fiber pieces will replace the glassy black plastic units found on the standard Aventador. These include the intake surrounds on the front bumper, the intakes located behind the doors, and new side sills.

Only five examples are to be built, though many of the LP760-2’s individual parts will be offered for sale separately by Oakley Design. We can’t wait to see the finished product.
