Ferrari followers, look away. The F40 was an ’80s famous person and its restricted manufacturing has turned it right into a basic. Tuning one might be the very last thing you need to do and current to followers, not to mention give it chopped-up wings, slam it to the bottom, and paint it white.
However Japanese tuner Liberty Stroll did precisely these issues and confirmed it within the metallic on the 2023 Tokyo Auto Salon. It follows the widebody package teaser that the agency showcased final yr, although that one got here in a extra acceptable pink end.
The embedded social media put up above reveals the white Ferrari F40 widebody within the metallic, which you can too entry via the supply hyperlink under. The video atop this web page reveals the precise unveiling on the auto present.
As you possibly can see, the transformed supercar comes with a brand new entrance cowl, cowl duct, mild cowl, splitter facet skirts, rear wing, diffuser, and wider wings. There’s additionally a massive opening to the bonnet and a single NACA duct within the centre somewhat than the unique two. The pop-up headlights are gone, thanks (or no thanks?) to the widebody conversion.
Whether or not this aftermarket transformation is sacrilege or not, that is fully as much as you. However judging by the feedback thrown when the car was teased, this is not going to sit down properly with followers.
Liberty Stroll did not say whether or not there’s an engine tuning concerned, however we suspect the corporate did not contact the F40’s twin-turbo 2.9-litre V8. Of word, the force-inducted mill is factory-rated at 471 bhp and 426 lb-ft of torque, solely mated to a five-speed guide gearbox.
The Japanese tuning agency did not disclose the pricing of the F40 widebody package. Its web site has already listed the product although the value part is labeled “ASK.” With a conversion as controversial as this, we’re positive that that part will not be too pleasant for now, however who is aware of?
