Lamborghini's magnificent LP700-4, named "Aventador" after a prized Spanish fighting bull is a literal sight-to-behold with it's massive proportions and cutting-edge design. As with all Lamborghini models before it, the Aventador carries it's presence with a distinctive flair and panache that is almost always quite the opposite of the design language of the other Italian thoroughbred, the Ferrari. We take you on a brief behind-the-scenes journey as we execute our craft on the first Aventador in the country.
This being the first Aventador in the country and like most early appearances meant that we had to perform an extremely thorough inspection from the inside out and to blueprint crucial information like the paintwork thickness for a base reference of paint quality with future Aventadors and also to chart the gloss-level readings utilizing an instrument which measures both specular and diffuse reflections.
It took the team a total of 7-days to flatten the course orange-peel texture of the original paintwork to a flawless mirror-finish. Imperfections were corrected and the paint burnished to an extraordinary-level of shine. As the Aventador is designed with many hard edges, special care was taken to mask the corners and edges to reduce premature wear on them. Our signature 12-step compounding and polishing system transformed the stock paintwork to a display-worthy finish.
The Aventador is indeed quite a sight to behold as it's massive dimensions and edgy design cues command attention.
The wheels with the carbon ceramic brakes underwent pressurized high-temperature steam cleaning for a spotless finish.
Each vent diligently cleaned...
Emblems as usual received extra attention for that immaculate touch.
The powerful 6.5L V12 engine which packs approximately 700 bhp is made pristine.
The cabin upholstery gets treated with our proprietary 5-stage leather feed system which moisturizes the fine leather trim and seats with advanced UV-inhibitors to prevent degradation. The leather finish as usual, produces deep, matte colours and an unmatched suppleness.
The exterior and interior coachwork was then worked on to ensure a perfect delivery with the paintwork receiving a track-tested hydrophobic coating system designed to endure extremely high-temperatures for extended periods of time.
Our latest headlamp protection system was then fitted which protects the polycarbonate lenses with a 6-mil thick flexible film that absorbs stone-chip impact preserving the headlamps for several years.
