• Auto Veloce gives Ferrari F430 a Lamborghini treatment

Since time immemorial – or at least since the automobile was invented – man has found countless ways to push the envelope when it comes to super cars. Yet despite their dissimilarities, supercars generally hold a couple of things in common, chief among them are their awe-inducing power and their gaudy price tags.

That being said, it’s hard to mistake a Ferrari for a Lamborghini and vice versa, thanks in large part to the distinct features both Italian supercar makers have from each other. But as is the case with the bold and the ingenious, Japanese tuners Auto Veloce have found a way to infuse design elements found in the Lamborghini and put them into a Ferrari F430.

Not exactly the holiest of collaborations, but the whole Ferrari-Lamborghini look by Auto Veloce works wonders on both the untrained eye of a regular Joe and the steely and scrutinizing mind of a gear head. Notice that this particular F430 now comes with Lamborghini’s distinct front air dam, quarter panel intakes, and rear wing that look suspiciously inspired by a Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce. We don’t know if that was the look Auto Veloce was hoping for, but judging by the Lambo-Ferrari mash-up, we pretty much figured what kind of look the tuning house was aiming for.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

The juxtaposition of the Ferrari’s smooth curvature with hard lines and angles common to Lambos just doesn’t quite work IMO. Mixing awesome with awesome doesn’t produce more awesome in this case.

Impressive F430 those front air vents and side skirts did a good job on separating it to the standard F430.
