Enzo Ferrari once became so enraged that German tuning company Koenig wouldn’t stop customizing his cars that he ordered them to remove all Ferrari badges from their vehicles via legal notice. If Enzo were still around today, we imagine he might send a similar letter to Japan’s Liberty Walk Performance, which today debuted its new tuning program for the Ferrari 488 GTB.
Similar to Koenig, Liberty Walk specializes in producing widebody kits for supercars. LB’s 488 GTB kit comes on the heels of its widebody tuning program for the Ferrari 458 and features similar aspects such as a rear ducktail spoiler, front and rear fender flares, side skirts, a front lip and dive planes. There’s also three-piece Forgiato Dieci-C wheels painted in a gloss black finish and shod in Pirelli P-Zero tires.
Liberty Walk’s 488 GTB, which it has dubbed the LB 488 Works-R, debuted today at the Tokyo Auto Salon in Japan. The show car, pictured here, was delivered to the tuning company in a Grigio Scuro (dark grey) exterior color with black contrasting elements applied to the roof, door mirrors and rear intake gills. LB also stuck a thin black vinyl stripe up the center of the vehicle.
Enzo probably would have hated this creation, but we’ve got to be honest, we’re finding it hard not to take to this flared-out Ferrari. Way to carry the Koenig torch, LB.
