"Only very recently, the new Gallardo LP560 appeared on the world stage of automotive prodigies – and, already, Lamborghini tuner IMSA has taken care of it.
Here, for the first time, the legendary GTV kit for the LP 560 will shortly be available. Of course, it is also made of high-quality carbon from the autoclave. It consists of an aerodynamically optimized front apron, larger fenders for all four wheel arches and a rear bumper with an integrated diffuser.
Thanks to the corresponding side skirts, the dynamic design is harmoniously brought to perfection. Thus equipped, even the parked car looks significantly racier and reminds the beholder of the legendary GTV models from the good old days. A body kit whose dynamics convince without exaggeration ..."
The above is an excerpt from the official press release from IMSA GmbH, the German based tuner that has given us the amazing Gallardo GTV a few years ago, and today is able to extend this magnificent looking kit onto the recent LP560-4 evolution of the V10 Raging Bull.
A factory original LP560-4 already looks very nice, but after a stay at the IMSA workshop, the LP560-4 GTV looks even more impressive, thanks to the wide wheel arch extensions above all four wheels and the nicely integrated rear wing, all rather similar to the original GTV kit seen on the silver metallic demo car, however the front spoiler is now totally different with an styling closely related to the LP560-4 original unit.
Safe to say that people will again be lining up to have IMSA turn their regular Gallardo into a GTV edition, however expect a nice waiting list as it takes time to mount all the parts to your Gallardo once you leave the keys at IMSA.
