The First Liberty Walk Lamborghini Urus Widebody Is Almost Ready, Ferrari F40 Build Begins

Ever since the Lamborghini Urus entered production in 2018, tuners have been busy injecting extra badassery into the super-SUV. Last month, Lamborghini itself made the vehicle lower, wider, and more aggressive (i.e., visually and technically) by introducing the 2023 Urus Performante. However, there will always be room for fresh aftermarket takes on the Italian machine, which is why Japanese developer Liberty Walk is now showcasing its Urus widebody, albeit in prototype form.

Two months ago today, Liberty Walk started taking orders for the Urus body kit, but the images we saw then were renderings. And, with the aero treatment set to be displayed this November at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, the tuner is now allowing us to check out the build in real life.

Company founder Wataru Kato gives us a walkaround of the Liberty Walk Urus in the video below. This is not the dry carbon version, as we’re looking at the base FRP (fiber-reinforced polymer) iteration instead. The pieces aren’t painted yet and the wheels are the factory units. Even so, we can get a clear take on the final package’s appearance.

For the record, the LB Works Urus body kit consists of a front lip, side skirts, overfenders, optional hood, rear diffuser, tailgate spoiler, and roof spoiler. Interestingly, Wataru-san likens that roof spoiler to a Gundam—this digital Gundam F1 car can tell you more about Japan’s world-famous franchise involving pilot-controlled humanoid vehicles that sometimes get mistaken for robots.

The pricing? It starts at over $30,000 for the FRP kit without the hood, but tick those options and you can almost double that.

Liberty Walk is also working on a Ferrari F40

While it’s true that Liberty Walk will play with more SUVs in the future, those who prefer the Japanese specialist’s slammed, widebodied supercars need not fret. For one, the tuner has started working on a red Ferrari F40, as also shown in the clip (7:27 timestamp).

The project is scheduled to greet the public in January 2023, at the Tokyo Auto Salon. And while the exact mods aren’t clear, we expect more serious work compared to the white F40 “Dolce” that’s been in Wataru Kato’s collection for years—you’ll find this in the second vid below (lens tip to Carfection).

For the record, the F40 “Dolce” packs an LB Work rear wing, rear diffuser, and carbon front lip, along with a few other custom items such as the Roberuta air ride, Enkei wheels, titanium straight-pipe exhaust, and upgraded Brembo brakes.

This time around though, we may get a Liberty Walk widebody for the F40, which could be installed by drilling into the fenders of a car with a production run of just 1,311 units.
