I'm sure you remember the amazing looking widebody Lamborghini Murciélago by Liberty Walk / LB Performance, especially as they also entered one of these limited edition tuning versions in the 50 Anniversario Grande Giro event in Italy finished in a beautiful white shade.
The very unique, riveted wheel arch extensions make this 'Liberty Walk LB-R Limited Works 20 Murciélago' as it is officially called, look more like an old school race car instead of a high performance exotic ... add the very, very concave rear wheels, deep front spoiler and massive rear wing in Super Veloce look and this Murciélago becomes one of the most impressive looking Raging Bull ever seen.
The first production number of this LB-R Limited Works 20 received another rather special touch ... a brushed aluminum look wrap that drew a lot of attention during the 2012 SEMA show in the United States where the official unveil of this car was done ... and when it came to preparing the next evolution in the LB Performance offerings they went for a similar wrap ... on an Aventador this time.
At the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show LB Performance showed their tuning package for the current Lamborghini V12 flagship, the Aventador LP700-4. Again a high rear wing, special side skirts, a deep front spoiler and custom wheels combined with a 'bagged suspension' make this Aventador by LB Performance look like an exotic low rider.
So how do you create something even more impressive after showing a widebody Murciélago and a low riding Aventador ... easy: combine the two and release an Aventador LB-R Limited Works with a riveted wide body kit in addition to the already impressive aerodynamic kit LB Performance has on the shelve for the LP700-4.
I don't know if LB Performance is even considering this kind of tuning for the Lamborghini Aventador, but just in case they would like to get a preview on how it looks I've created it for everybody to enjoy ... check out the photo with this article on how I would shape the wide wheel arches and rivet them onto the original bodywork.
The front wheel arches run into an air vent in front of the doors, just like on a race car while they are held onto the original fenders with rivets, while additional sections are installed on the sides of the front bumper so they connect with the new wheel arches. At the rear a similar treatment is installed, very wide fenders bolted onto the original rear side sections, with separate body panels next to the large side air intakes to make sure the entire wheel arch is extra wide, this also requires the side skirts to get wider fins just ahead of the rear wheels while the front fins are widened too, naturally the wheels are offset further to fill the new wheel arches completely.
The rear wing is the same as on the regular kit for the LB Performance Aventador, but you could go for a Veneno style unit with a vertical central fin ... that would be really special.
I'm sure there is a market for this kind of radical tuning ... it will not appeal to everybody out there, but that's exactly what Lamborghini and LB Performance are all about ... making something really special for the select few.
