You can buy a used Gallardo for the price of this Silhouette Works GT kit.
Liberty Walk is no stranger to controversy - the Japanese firm is known for building some of the most outlandish widebody kits ever to grace or ruin, depending on your own opinion on the matter, some of the world's finest sports cars and supercars. In addition to its outlandish kits, the tuner is also known to be expensive, especially when you tick the box for carbon fiber bodywork. But its latest creation carries one of the most eye-watering price tags yet. You may remember the Liberty Walk Huracan we featured earlier this year decked out in the company's latest Silhouette Works GT widebody kit, but we've now found out that for the same price of the kit, you could buy a secondhand Lamborghini Gallardo.
The crazy-looking Silhouette Works GT kit is by no means the craziest kit we've seen from Liberty Walk. In fact, it seems to adopt many of the styling cues we've seen on Lamborghini's own products. The vented hood, for example, takes strong influence from the limited production Lamborghini Centenario, while the spine and prominent rear wing are definitely inspired by Lamborghini's self-produced one-make racing series Huracan Super Trofeo Evo racers. Of course, if you like these individual pieces, Liberty Walk will sell them to you in isolation. But if you want the whole kit, then you'll have to hand over a rather large sum of money.
The fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) version of the Silhouette Works GT kit, which can be equipped to both the Coupe and Spyder versions of the Huracan, starts off at $43,850 - already a large sum of money. But if you prefer carbon fiber, then you'll be looking at $50,650 for the CFRP version. You could go more outrageous, still, and opt for the dry carbon kit, which will cost you as much money as a 15-year old Lamborghini Gallardo. That's because, in dry carbon form, the widebody Huracan kit costs a jaw-dropping $59,830. That's just for the body kit.
If you'd like to achieve the full Liberty Walk look from these photos, you're going to need to fork out even more. The air suspension needed to lower the Huracan to this extent is a $9,500 option, and the wheels and tires cost even more - but just how much more we don't know as the tuner hasn't divulged the amounts just yet.
While the Silhouette Works GT kit might make your Huracan look like a Super Trofeo racer, it's unlikely to go like one, though, as the 5.2-liter V10 engine is left untouched, developing circa 600 horsepower in stock all-wheel-drive guise. As far as Liberty Walk kits go, this is definitely far from being the most offensive, but if it were our money, we'd probably take a secondhand Gallardo over this.
