The Lamborghini Aventador is a car that needs no upgrading. But that won't stop European tuners from adding horsepower and aerodynamic parts in an attempt to make the latest bull even better. After a lengthy teaser campaign, DMC Tuning has revealed its second Aventador package, the LP900 SV.

The LP900 package builds upon the Molto Veloce package that DMC revealed a couple of months back. It is the official "Stage Two" of DMC's Aventador tuning plans. The German tuner translated inspiration from the Aventador J concept into an aerodynamics and performance package that only 10 people will ever have the pleasure of owning.

DMC got things started by bolting a pair of vicious carbon fiber bumpers onto the supercar, which give the car an even sterner demeanor, particularly from the front. A set of side skirts with diffuser panels help visually connect the new bumpers. The sharper front nose and creased bumper was inspired by the J concept, and the Formula 1-style canards on either side of the front-end help to siphon air off to the sides.

If the bold rear bumper with its unique tunnel system isn't enough to tell you the LP900 SV means business, the towering rear wing should finish the job. The centered exhaust tips are the tail-end of DMC's titanium exhaust system.

When it came to the 6.5-liter V12 engine driving the rear wheels, DMC replaced the combined overhead throttle valves with 12 unique single throttle plates – one for each cylinder. It also reworked the electronics and replaced a few other components to crank output up to the namesake 900-hp.

The SV also gets a new rear bumper

DMC doesn't provide an estimate of just how quick or fast its package will make the Aventador, but when the stock, 700-hp version packs numbers like 2.9 seconds (0-62 mph/100 km/h) and 217 mph (350 km/h), an extra 200 horses are sure to look impressive on the track.

DMC is only offering 10 LP900 SV examples, and it's being quite selective in its customer base.

"Money is not the issue for our clients," said Thorsten Grebers, marketing manager at DMC Germany, in a statement. "This is a kit that you can't get by using your credit card."

The 10 people will have to first buy in with the Stage One Molto Veloce kit, which, while not as extreme as the SV, includes a variety of carbon fiber body components and other new equipment. Then, they'll have to apply separately and be approved based upon DMC's special criteria. Adding up all of the individual Stage One and Two component prices that DMC lists in its SV press release, buyers will quickly be shelling out 75,000 + euros (approximately US$98,000) over top the price of their Aventadors. Each SV model will be painted in a unique color, so that no two will be exactly alike.

And DMC isn't done yet; a Stage Three appears to be on the way.

"But there is one more thing, STAGE 1, STAGE 2, ............ Stay tuned," its press release concludes.
