The aftermarket company has designed a wide-body kit named PD-L800 with all parts made from Dura-Flex FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic).

The hardware includes a new front bumper with huge intakes on the front and the sides, wider front and rear fenders with air intakes, a roof scoop, a rear wing, side skirts and a new rear bumper incorporating a diffuser.

The body kit alone is priced at 12,900 (US$15,900) while buyers can further enhance the look of the Italian exotic with a set of black alloy wheels and a custom exhaust system.

Wow....a simple body kit that doesn't completely ruin the car it's installed on. I didn't think it could be done!

love it....well, all but the roof scoop...it looks like it's just glued on the roof, is it functional at all or just stick on pep boys style? It better do something.

The irrational part of me loves to think that my favorite vices (mnt dew, red meat and beer) have helped me build a super brain.

I hate fender flares like that. It isnt wide body. Its no different than a Jeep tacking on those Bushwhacker fender flares. Looks terrible. Do a REAL wide body where you make a mold of the body then make a metal or fiberglass replica of the body that comes out away from the actual body a few inches.

People should have be left wondering if anything was even done at all....take for example the APR widebody STi.


Poster, I mean poster. What have I done?

Agreed. I am fine with the front fenders but the rear flares should be seamless rather than look like they are glued on. Overall I do like how it works with the body (except the roof).

I personally don't mind the tacked on look of this kit for the Gallardo, it might not work with other cars, but i think it works well with the Gallardo. In comparison, this kit is actually smoother than the one from IMSA, which IMO, still looks very nice and aggressive.
