Lamborghini Aventador GT Evolution Gets Kitted
Never mind that the Lamborghini Aventador GT Evo is already fairly exclusive, with only around 10,000 units produced worldwide thus far. If you have one, distinguishing yours from other run-of-the-mill Aventadors is imperative, and that’s why there’s a new body kit from Liberty Walk.
Liberty Walk has become synonymous with high-end Japanese body kits, and if the report by Carscoops.com is correct, there’s only going to be 20 of their new kits made for the Aventador. Seems like their production numbers are rather low until you see the going price internationally on their website, $187,000 on the upper end of the spectrum. At that rate, the fluctuation in currencies likely doesn’t matter, and it will work itself out well before any large shipping containers arrive on your doorstep.
Dry carbon fiber is the material of choice for the top Aventador kit, which will net you a new front bumper, upper canard, front under canard, new front fenders and fins, new outer door panels, side inner and outer panels, rear quarter panels, rear outer fenders, a new rear bumper, and upper cover, rear diffuser, rear wing, new hood, and the engine over with fin.
For about half the price, or $94,600 to be exact, you can get the same Liberty Walk styling in fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) instead, although it may be obvious to the Liberty Walk cognoscenti that you have the lesser of the two kits, thus opening yourself and your Aventador to an entirely different form of body shaming, although no less demeaning.
Somewhere in the middle, at $109,450, Liberty Walk offers a combo kit, some parts dry carbon and others out of FRP. Whether this will suffice as a ‘real’ Liberty Walk body kit or not is unknown, without having been around enough owners to assess whether they discern the difference.
It is the abject style that sets Liberty Walk apart. I first spotted examples of their handiwork at the SEMA Show years ago, in DUB Magazine’s mammoth outdoor display. There was an undeniable attraction, a rakishness all their own, much like Wataru Kato, the company’s founder. If the company exudes a certain swagger, it is because they’ve earned it. Taking risks with their restyling products, they attract a loyal following. Should the 2021 SEMA Show take place this year as a live event once again, expect to see Liberty Walk front and center, with more outrageous, exotic cars on display.

- Jeanbaptiste Any variant of “pizza” flavored combos. I only eat these on car trips and they are just my special gut wrenching treat.
- Nrd515 Usually for me it's been Arby's for pretty much forever, except when the one near my house dosed me with food poisoning twice in about a year. Both times were horrible, but the second time was just so terrible it's up near the top of my medical horror stories, and I have a few of those. Obviously, I never went to that one again. I'm still pissed at Arby's for dropping Potato Cakes, and Culver's is truly better anyway. It will be Arby's fish for my "cheat day", when I eat what I want. No tartar sauce and no lettuce on mine, please. And if I get a fish and a French Dip & Swiss? Keep the Swiss, and the dip, too salty. Just the meat and the bread for me, thanks. The odds are about 25% that they will screw one or both of them up and I will have to drive through again to get replacement sandwiches. Culver's seems to get my order right many times in a row, but if I hurry and don't check my order, that's when it's screwed up and garbage to me. My best friend lives on Starbucks coffee. I don't understand coffee's appeal at all. Both my sister and I hate anything it's in. It's like green peppers, they ruin everything they touch. About the only things I hate more than coffee are most condiments, ranked from most hated to..who cares..[list=1][*]Tartar sauce. Just thinking about it makes me smell it in my head. A nod to Ranch here too. Disgusting. [/*][*]Mayo. JEEEEZUS! WTF?[/*][*]Ketchup. Sweet puke tasting sludge. On my fries? Salt. [/*][*]Mustard. Yikes. Brown, yellow, whatever, it's just awful.[/*][*]Pickles. Just ruin it from the pickle juice. No. [/*][*]Horsey, Secret, whatever sauce. Gross. [/*][*]American Cheese. American Sleeze. Any cheese, I don't want it.[/*][*]Shredded lettuce. I don't hate it, but it's warm and what's the point?[/*][*]Raw onion. Totally OK, but not something I really want. Grilled onions is a whole nother thing, I WANT those on a burger.[/*][*]Any of that "juice" that Subway and other sandwich places want to put on. NO, HELL NO! Actually, move this up to #5.

- SPPPP It seems like a really nice car that's just still trying to find its customer.
- MRF 95 T-Bird I owned an 87 Thunderbird aka the second generation aero bird. It was a fine driving comfortable and very reliable car. Quite underrated compared to the GM G-body mid sized coupes since unlike them they had rack and pinion steering and struts on all four wheels plus fuel injection which GM was a bit late to the game on their mid and full sized cars. When I sold it I considered a Mark VII LSC which like many had its trouble prone air suspension deleted and replaced with coils and struts. Instead I went for a MN-12 Thunderbird.
- SCE to AUX Somebody got the bill of material mixed up and never caught it.Maybe the stud was for a different version (like the 4xe) which might use a different fuel tank.
If there's one thing I think when I see a Lamborghini, it's, "You know what this needs? Something to spice it up a bit. Give it a little kick."
I always thought the Aventador was a bit of a poseurs car. And, now for under $200,000 it can look even more hokey. I hope the body kit at least smells good when it burns with the rest of the car.
