The Great White North seems to have a fascination with creating distinct Lamborghinis. Case in point would be the 2014 Galaxy Lamborghini Aventador Roadster and this skiing inspired 2013 LB Bape Lamborghini Aventador.
The 2013 LB Bape Lamborghini Aventador was crafted by Canadian tuning house Dynamic Performance. Design notes were inspired by professional skier Jon Olsson's collection of exotic cars. It comes wrapped by LB Bape (a Japanese clothing manufacturer).
This professional has owned a fair amount of them. The first was a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo that he acquired in 2007. He gave it a special wrap and Tubi exhaust system.
The next step in his collection was a matte black Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 with straight race pipes. It was supplanted by a Murciélago LP670-4 Super Veloce that took part in two Gumball races with a race specs exhaust and the ski box on the roof.
He then moved onto a Nissan GTR before returning to his Lamborghini roots with a Lamborghini Gallardo with a DMC kit and a wrap combining white, grey and black sections. He stayed close to the Lamborghini bloodline when he moved into an Audi R8. Then came the 2013 LB Bape Lamborghini Aventador.
The eye-catching arctic blue camo sits on top of a full Liberty Walk body kit, and Innotech Performance Exhaust system to allow for better "breathing" of the 6.5-liter V12 with 700 horsepower. Naturally there is a customer ski box storage system on top of the Aventador coupe. It’s apparently an Olsson signature touch for his Lamborghinis.
Automobili Lamborghini is using a highly advanced and utterly unique technology for its new stop-start system in the Aventador. The energy for re-start following a stop phase (e.g. at a traffic light) is delivered by high-performance capacitors known as supercaps. They enable extremely fast start-up – full V12 power is available again in a barely detectable 180 milliseconds, significantly faster than with conventional systems.
The second new efficiency technology is the Cylinder Deactivation System (CDS). Under low load and at speeds of less than 85 mph, the CDS deactivates one cylinder bank, allowing the power unit to run as an inline six. But with just the slightest movement of the gas pedal, the extreme performance of the V12 engine with its 700 horsepower is back online.
