Based on the shores of Lake Biwa in Japan is a tuning company
called Auto Veloce. Now normally when a high end tuning outfit
decides to develop some aftermarket aerodynamic
body panels for exotic machinery they try to expand on the original
vehicle with sympathetic upgrades designed to reflect and enhance
the original designers vision. Not so with Auto Veloce. They've
decided to spit in the face of Ferrari by developing a range
of accessories for the F430
which are unashamedly influenced by the styling of Ferrari's
main rival Lamborghini.
Essentially the kit comprises of a new front bumper with two
large angular intakes positioned and shaped just like those
found on the Lamborghini
Gallardo. Then for the sideskirts Auto Veloce have created
some beefier units which are almost carbon copies of those found
on the Murcielago
LP640. At the rear the F430 gets a rather busy looking diffuser
and a massive rear wing.
So if you're torn between buying an F430 and a Gallardo your
answer has arrived. You will however have to hand over a lot
of money, and all your taste, in return.
No mechanical upgrades are included in the package so unless
the changes have added a load of weight or added a bunch of
drag, the F430 SVR from Auto Veloce should hit 60 mph in around
4 seconds, and top out at just under 200 mph.
