Japanese Tuner Visibly Rivets Widebody Kit onto Ferrari 458 to Great Effect

Taking a supercar and modifying it is a bit crazy, and you really have to know what you’re getting yourself into, as most components are engineered to within very small tolerances to maximize performance, and whenever you alter them, you run the risk of ruining it if you’re not careful.

However, if you don’t like your Ferrari 458 in its stock form, then Japanese tuner LB Performance, a subsidiary of Liberty Walk, may have the unique kit you were looking for.

Applied here to a white Spider model and a dark grey coupe, the kit is meant to enhance the stance by adding extra cladding around both of the wheelarches, cladding which is fastened on with visible rivets that Enzo Ferrari might not have liked, but I sure do…

There are also custom side skirts that give the design continuity, as well as a front splitter and rear spoiler, as well as a lowered ride height and new wheels complete the look.

No performance mods are offered, but aside from a straight exhaust, I personally wouldn’t do anything else at all to it. The complete kit costs around €18,000 or $24,700.
