I thought by way of a change I would take a look this week at an alternative means of travelling the world.

In a city like Dubai, driving around in a Lamborghini Aventador isn’t all that impressive. After all, the incredibly wealthy city is home to many limited edition hypercars from McLaren, Porsche, Ferrari, Pagani and Koenigsegg.  With those cars roaming the streets, the only Aventadors which can properly turn heads are modified examples and the following from Oakley Design is one of the most impressive we’ve seen.

While not quite as crazy as say a Mansory Carbonado Aventador with a reported 1200 hp, this Oakley Design Aventador currently up for sale from Deals on Wheels on James Edition has been adorned with a number of bespoke visual and aerodynamic touches to make it stand out on Dubai’s blisteringly hot roads. Additionally, power from the naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine has been lifted to 760 hp thanks to some ECU tweaks and a new exhaust system.

From a visual standpoint, this Aventador has been painted in Lamborghini’s stealthy shade of matte black, dubbed Nero Nemesis. It is rolling on a set of custom gloss black wheels complete with bright orange center locks and sitting over matching orange brake calipers. As this Aventador is Oakley Design’s ‘LP760-4 Carbon Edition’, many exterior elements are finished in carbon fiber; most notably, the front splitter, front air intake surrounds, roof, wing mirrors and side air intakes.

At the rear, it includes a custom carbon diffuser and the obligatory carbon fiber rear wing finished with orange endplates. The interior perfectly complements the exterior thanks to the combination of black leather upholstery with orange alcantara across the seats, steering wheel, door panels, center console and transmission tunnel.
