Make it WIDER!

SEMA always gets us some crazy builds and this year was no different.

Recently I got to shoot one of the crazier builds from this years show. The Liberty Walk LB Performance Lamborghini Murcielago. Liberty Walk is a Japanese tuner knows for building crazy kits for Lambo's, but they really outdid themselves with this one. Doing what few would dare do and cutting into a Lamborghini's fenders to make it a wide body. Once they did that they wrapped it all up in a very cool looking polished brushed aluminum wrap that just looks great on the car.

The mods done to it are purely cosmetic other than the brakes which have been upgraded. I would have at least done some basic engine mods to back up the looks. Either way I love it.

What do you guys think about this build?

As always you guys can view the full-gallery at

What the hell constitutes "basic engine mods" on a lambo?

I'm not a fan, but Lamborghinis aren't quite my speed.

Given the extra width, that car should be running clearance lights to be DOT legal.

I've seen body kits on Lambos before. Lambos are for rich guys that are too crazy to own a mere Ferrari. A twin (or quad) turbo system is what that car really needs.

I don't care for recent Lamborghinis and like the modified ones even less.

I have to agree, rich people that buy Lambos are too crazy to buy Ferrari.

I dunno - if I was super wealthy - I'd have both - they are very different - a ferrari is a lot more refined and can tear hard when it has to - the lambo always wants to rip the road up and just doesn't like to take it steady from my own very limited experience of both... but those experiences were a long time back... the exception was the Testarossa - it always felt a little "lambo like" - a guy I know had one in London - he was always killing wheels it was too wide for London streets.

Yes, please.

I dont think a car that has 641hp thumping from a mid mounted V12 really needs any performance modifications
