Is this the maddest Aventador yet?
Not many humans would look at the 691bhp, lozenge-shaped Lamborghini Aventador and conclude it needed a bit more visual bite. But then not many humans are Kato-San, the man behind Japanese tuning shop Liberty Walk.
Renderings fresh from his computer show a £260,000 blood-red Aventador that he’ll cut, stretch, bash and rivet within an inch of its life, before presenting to the tuning world at the SEMA later this year.
First of all, you may notice that the expensively exotic carbon construction has been somewhat expanded. That’s thanks to some additional bodywork screwed - yes, screwed! - on to accommodate some monster Toyo-wrapped wheels nestling snugly in the arches, thanks to a lower ride height.
There are also new splitters front and rear, gaping sideskirts and a monster wing extending from the rear bumper - just like a GT race car. Aside from a new exhaust system (because the blue flame belching one that Jeremy loved so much obviously wasn’t enough) there’s no word of any major mechanical changes or enhancements to the 6.5-litre V12 residing behind the driver’s head.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Liberty Walk take its angle grinders to Italian supercars: who could forget last year’s modified Ferrari 458? And, as we found out cruising through Tokyo in a hot-pink, mirror-wrapped diamond-studded Diablo Super Veloce, it’s not like the Japanese are new to severely jazzing up Lamborghinis.
So, the Liberty Walk Aventador: good, bad, or deliciously evil?
