SR Auto Group Winter Tuned Lamborghini Aventador
Preparing a car for winter means for most of us to hook up the winter tires, check the liquids and make sure the car’s systems are in good shape and functional. Well, that’s for any regular person, not for the guys over the SR Auto Group, a British Columbia, Canada based auto tuner! – also check the Lamborghini Veneno – The 4.5M USD Roadster and the Mercedes SLS GT3 AMG we featured earlier.

Their latest project – the Project700 Wintermode Lamborghini Aventador – is a cool proof of they mean when they say “Winter Mode Car“.
The tuned Lamborghini was painted in carbon and wrapped in satin black vinyl for scratch protection, features of Pirelli Sotto Zeros mounted on strong powder coated finish PUR 4OUR black rims, a PUR Basics Lowering System kit, a PUR Aero Carbon Fiber set of spoilers and skirts.
One last thing that needed to be solved was the storage space for the winter gear (read skis, boots, snowboards and anything else you might need on the slopes). An 8 ft (that’s about 2.4 meters) Thule roof ski box was carefully wrapped in the same satin black vinyl, fitted and mounted on the top of the Aventador allows extra storage for the passengers sports equipment.
