The 1,000 HP German Tuned Lamborghini Aventador

German tuner DMC is not what one would describe as “subtle.” On a day-to-day basis, the company takes Ferraris, McLarens, and Lambos and injects them with Jose Canseco-levels of steroids. In other words, it is saying quite a lot to proclaim the new LP-988 Edizione GT the most extreme DMC yet. And it most certainly is.

This is the first car produced with the $288,000 package—and yes, that’s on top of the price of buying an Aventador. The carbon fiber sprouts from the car at every opportunity, polished to a mirror-like shine and, in the case of the front and rear splitters, is fully adjustable to fine-tune the car.

This is the view for any driver not in a Bugatti or Koenigsegg, because DMC set out to make the horsepower figure match the number in the LP-988’s name. Giving it a dozen individual throttle bodies, paired with a couple of turbos, just fits the (very, very large) bill.

DMC wants to ensure exclusivity, so in addition to setting up the interior in just about any way you like, they’re limiting production to 10 units, and flatly refusing to build more than one of the same color.
