Gintani has made the Aventador sound like a Murcielago
And I need to change my pants.
The Lamborghini Aventador is a monster of a car. As a base model it produces over 700hp from its 6.5L naturally-aspirated V12. It zaps to 60 in less than 3 seconds, with a quarter mile time of under 11 seconds at over 130 mph. The latest and most extreme iteration of the Aventador, the SVJ, currently holds the production vehicle lap record at Nurburgring at 6:44.97.
The Lamborghini Murcielago's 6.5L V12 competes with the Lexus LFA's 4.8L V10, the Mazda 787B's 2.6L 4-rotor, and the Porsche Carrera GT's 5.7L V10 for the best exhaust note in history.
But while the car performs phenomenally, the sound it produces isn't nearly as iconic as the sweet shrieks the Murcielago emits. Compared to the Murcielago, the Aventador's exhaust note sounds hollow and without character. Aftermarket exhaust manufacturers have tried for years to change the Aventador's tone and give it a different sound, but none have held their own against the previous V12's ferocious shrieks. That is, until Gintani got their skin in the game.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the ultimate mid-engined V12 supercar. With changes like active aero, 4-wheel steering, and a bump in power, this magnificent beast holds the production car lap record at the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
In preparation for Gold Rush Rally, Randy Savage of the Savage Garage YouTube channel sent his Aventador SVJ to Gintani, an aftermarket performance shop based in Los Angeles. In addition to performing general maintenance on the car, they modified Randy's exhaust with a custom setup made in house at Gintani. The results speak for themselves:
The exhaust from this SVJ sounds PHENOMENAL. From the rough, hollow note of the stock exhaust to this harmonic shriek, this Aventador is ready to terrorize the streets of America. I'm so ready to hear more of this beast.
What do you guys think of this exhaust mod? Let me know in the comments!
