Prior Design is a German tuner that specializes on the development of bespoke aerodynamic kits, alloy wheels, and exhaust systems for a variety of cars ranging from the MINI hatchback all the way up to Lamborghini models such as the 2003-2008 Gallardo, which is the company's latest object of desire.

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.

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.

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.

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.
