At the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, LB Performance unveiled their new Lamborghini Aventador aero kit for the first time, installed on a custom wrapped V12 flagship model, it was impressive, and low to the ground thanks to their trademark air ride suspension install … but that would just be the start of a growing line up of amazing kits from Japan-based Kato-san.
A year later, at the 2014 SEMA show in the United States of America we finally was an LB-Works Aventador in the style we would expect from Kato-san … lowered to the max, extremely wide fenders with that typical LB-Works ‘rivet’ look, and a giant rear wing … the LB-Works Aventador was unveiled.
It would take Kato-san four more years to come up with something even wilder than the LB-Works Aventador, at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show they unveiled the LB-Works Lamborghini Aventador Limited Edition, with a modified design and additional intakes … but this time the $60,000 aero kit became limited. Only 20 would be available on the Japanese market, and 30 would be sold to the rest of the world … and according to YouTube member Stradman, these kits are all but sold out, as he managed to get hold of one of the final units for his Bianco Canopus Aventador Roadster Pirelli edition.
On January 19, 2021, Wataru Kato, the founder, and CEO of Liberty Walk, turned 54 … and for his birthday he unveiled the final edition of the LB Aventador. Only 20 of these kits will be made, and it’s called the LB Silhouette WORKS Aventador GT EVO, in line with his latest Huracan kit that’s called the LB-Silhouette WORKS Huracan GT.
I’ve taken a look at the Liberty Walk website, where the new LB Silhouette WORKS Aventador GT EVO is listed, and it’s available in either FRP, DRY Carbon Fiber, or a mix of both … from $94,600 up to $187,000 … and yes, that is without the Aventador donor vehicle, without a custom exhaust, without wheels, and without the necessary air-ride suspension, this isn’t a kit for the fainthearted I guess.
Taking a look at the parts list on the Liberty Walk it becomes obvious not much of the original Lamborghini Aventador is left after installing this kit, my guess is only the roof and the doors remain, everything else is replaced by LB Silhouette WORKS Aventador GT EVO parts.
It does look like Kato-san was inspired by the 2018 Lamborghini SC18 Alston if you take a closer look at the design of this new LB Silhouette WORKS Aventador GT EVO, the vertical fins on the side of the new front bumper look similar to the ones on the SC18, also the new front hood from Liberty Walk reminds me of the SC18 one. But the most striking resemblance is the design of the front fenders, with the lower section that is fixed to the doors and opens up … just as we’ve seen on the SC18.
Even the rear fenders and the aero design in front of the rear wheels seem to be inspired by Squadra Corse’s one-off model, and how about that imposing rear wing where the vertical struts also start on the rear fenders, but the real give-away has to be that vertical fin on this GT EVO kit … that was also seen on the SC18.
But all that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I rather like the SC18, and I also admire this new kit from Liberty Walk for what it stands for … and let’s not forget, even if you add the price of a Lamborghini Aventador (let’s say you get a second hand one), you go for the mixed FRP/Carbon fiber version at $123,200, add wheels, suspension, and a new exhaust in SVJ style … you would probably end up around $400,000, that’s still a long way from the rumored $7,000,000 the factory-built SC18 cost.
