Hamann Victory II is a Lamborghini Gallardo on steroids

When nothing is ever enough, tweak your Lambo, then tweak it some more

In the past German tuner Hamann had kitted out the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 with extra grunt and enough cosmetic upgrades to satisfy a rapper but then again there is always this year to top things.

So they came up with the Victory II, the most obvious changes to the uprated model are the doors. Hamann considered the normal swing-out doors heresy so they gave them a pair of swing-out semi-scissors.

They also made the body wider and added more carbon bits to make the car lighter.

Cosmetic upgrades start with a new front apron with carbon centre part, extended side skirts and roof-mounted air intake.

There is also a new rear wing and diffuser to supervise air flow and keep the rump planted when the driver is overcome by red mist.

Rubber now wraps 10-inch Edition Race wheels with special varnishing and that means 235/30ZR20 tyres at the front and 325/25ZR20 tyres at the back. Those 20 per cent profiles really do make them look like the tyres were just sprayed on.

They tweaked the black box to get 580 horsees and 575 Newton meters of torque and the calculator says this translates to a top speed of 328km/h.

They even fitted new end mufflers to make the V10 sound even more melodious.
