Vitesse AuDessus launches carbon fibre package for Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce

Bethesda, MD, 9 June 2016 – Vitesse AuDessus (www.vitesseaudessus.com), purveyors of bespoke carbon fibre products for the world’s most exciting and exclusive automobiles, has just announced the launch of an extensive carbon fibre package for the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Coupé and Roadster.

The offering is comprehensive and includes every external body panel for both the coupé and roadster variants (www.vitesseaudessus.com/catalog/lamborghini/aventador/sv/). Parts can be purchased individually or in packages.

The Essentials Package includes the lower front bumper, side skirts, mirrors and rear diffuser while the Extended Package also includes the bonnet. The parts come in the factory twill weave with a glossy or matte finish. Each part is fabricated using the highest quality pre-preg carbon fibre fabric that is autoclave-cured in CNC-milled aluminium moulds. After hours of hand-finishing, each part is meticulously inspected to ensure quality that meets or exceeds the factory fit and finish.

“There is no doubt that the Superveloce is an absolutely stunning supercar. One of the car’s few aesthetic failings lies in the use of highly-visible plastic bodywork. Several SV owners approached us seeking a carbon fibre option for these parts, namely the lower front bumper, side skirts, rear diffuser and mirrors. Our offering completes the visual story,” says CEO Stefany Sanchez.

Offered separately or bundled as a package are Vitesse AuDessus’s lightweight carbon fibre wheels. Available styles include a Veneno-inspired seven spoke, the Superveloce’s OEM-style wheel and several in-house, center lock designs. Each wheel design is tested to meet or exceed manufacturer standards and includes a proprietary coating to protect against the high heat generated by the carbon ceramic rotors.

“Our wheels are the lightest and strongest wheels available on the market today. By shedding more than 25kg (50lbs) of unsprung weight, our wheels markedly improve acceleration, handling and fuel economy. The Superveloce is already an exciting, exclusive, and sexy automobile. Our wheels make it that much more,” says Sanchez.

True to the brand’s bespoke commitment, every removable body panel for the Aventador Superveloce is available in bare carbon replacements in the weave, tint and finish specified by the client. For those parts attached to the monocoque, the brand offers lightweight veneers.

The parts come with a five-year warranty against defect or yellowing. OEM quality fit and finish are also guaranteed.

Lead-time for the parts is 3-4 weeks, and 4-6 weeks for the wheels, depending upon specification. All original parts are removed and stored in their original condition. Vitesse Audessus ships worldwide.

All packages include complimentary installation.

Vitesse AuDessus’s light touch extends to one-piece, full carbon fibre wheels

Bethesda, MD, July 27 – American bespoke carbon fibre atelier Vitesse AuDessus launches a line of one-piece, full carbon fibre wheels.

 

Hollow and perfectly balanced, each handcrafted wheel tips the scales at just over 13lbs (6kg) on average.

“In certain cases, our wheels reduce unsprung weight by more than 50%,“ says CEO Stefany Sanchez. “This dramatic reduction translates into increased acceleration, reduced stopping distance, improved steering and handling, improved grip, reduced road noise and vibrations and improved fuel economy. Technical details aside, they are also objects of beauty: think of your exotic or supercar as a Tom Ford suit or, in my case, a Carolina Herrera Dress. You wouldn’t pair either with a generic, mass-produced shoe or heel made with inferior materials, would you? I think not. And our clients would agree.”

Fabrication

Vitesse AuDessus’s new line of one-piece, full carbon fibre wheels uses prepreg carbon fibre fabric that is hand-laid and autoclave-cured in CNC-milled aluminium moulds, a process shared by Formula 1 race teams and respected Sweden-based supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg.

Vitesse AuDessus employs this same process for the brand’s full range of bespoke carbon fibre exteriors, interiors, components and monocoques which they produce for the world’s most exciting and exclusive automotive machines.

Production Range

Aside from Vitesse AuDessus’s bespoke offering, the company also produces a wide range of OEM-spec, one-piece full carbon fibre wheels for all current Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, Bugatti, Bentley, Aston Martin, Porsche, Mercedes Benz and BMW models.

Pricing, warranty and lead time

Retail pricing for OEM wheels starts at $8,875/wheel, while bespoke pricing begins at $10,125/wheel. Price factors include design, dimensions and performance requirements. Vitess AuDessus carbon fibre wheels can be shipped all over the world to both individuals and businesses.

All Vitesse AuDessus’s products come with a 5-year warranty against defect or failure and a replacement guarantee.

Typical lead time for the company’s one-piece, full carbon fibre wheels is 3-4 weeks.

Technical Notes

The improvements in performance and handling dynamics netted by reduced unsprung weight is a function of lowered translational and rotational inertia; this translates into less energy required for acceleration/deceleration and keeping the tyres in contact with the road.

Vitesse AuDessus’s proprietary fabrication techniques take maximum advantage of carbon fibre’s strength-to-weight and directional properties. Stiffness and tensile strength can be greatly increased in a pinpointed fashion with only minor weight penalties, a feat that is all-together impossible for isotropic materials such as aluminium or steel.
