In the world of aftermarket aesthetics, much like it is with fashion, trends come and go. Over the past decade the sudden rise of widebody kits becoming readily available for most new vehicles has since become a staple – or even expected from – a well-rounded build. Thing is usually these body kit manufacturers are usually known for one distinct style of widening vehicles, and if they do not reinvent themselves they will no longer bring anything new to the table.
Thankfully however being arguably the most reputable Japanese widebody specialist (next to Kei Miura of Rocket Bunny/Pandem fame) Liberty Walk is no slouch when it comes to staying ahead of the curve. Always doing his best to get a reaction – whether by chopping up rare classic exotica or unveiling a new kit – Wataru Kato-san is by no means resting on his laurels when it comes to churning out new kits. This case is further proven by their new Huracan Silhouette kit.
Unveiled yesterday as several renderings of the new kit, the LB Huracan Silhouette is a new approach to widening Lamborghini’s baby bull. Whereas the first LB Huracan kit sticks to the signature round fender formula, this new kit is entirely different in the fact that all fenders are now boxed flares that pump the guards out akin to the Silhouette/Group 5 racers of the 80’s. Kato-san first applied this styling to a Ferrari 488 earlier this year at the Tokyo Auto Salon, and it appears he’s building on the lineup of his new style with this Huracan. One other prominent piece that can only really be done on a car like the Huracan is its bi-sectioning wing that has a plane in the middle – a touch that can only be seen on some of Lamborghini’s concept cars as well as on the Aventador SVJ. This piece further brings the LB Huracan Silhouette towards the full GT look it was made to go after.
Kato-san’s official release indicates that the kit will make its debut later this year at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Prices for the kit should follow as well.
