This wider and lower Ferrari 488 GTB from Liberty Walk is not for the faint-hearted

The Ferrari 488 GTB – with all its sporty elegance and dynamic beauty – has been a favorite tuning subject for car tuners in many parts of the world. Now, world renowned Japanese tuning company Liberty Walk is joining the global club of tuners that has made the Ferrari 488 GTB the centerpiece of their modification project.

Liberty Walk’s version of the Ferrari 488 GTB was recently unveiled at the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon. As expected, this Ferrari 488 GTB is not walking without boasting of Liberty Walk’s signature modifications – it is fitted with extra-wide body kits and is lowered very close to the ground. These modifications gave this turbocharged Ferrari a lower “stanced” appearance.

Aside from the wider body kits and lowered suspension, the Ferrari 488 GTB by Liberty Walk was heavily revised in terms of its exterior looks. Wrapped in bluish gray color finish, this Ferrari 488 GTB by Liberty Walk features a glossy black roof as well as glossy black side mirror housing. In addition, the Ferrari 488 GTB by Liberty Walk features a glossy black front lip spoiler and glossy black wheels wrapped in sporty Pirelli tires.

Pogea Racing upgrade package for Ferrari 488 GTB is even better than the Pista

Ferrari decided to boost the 488 GTB and made its mid-engined V8 machine beefier for a more hardcore 488 Pista, which we saw around 2 months ago. Now, the engineers from Pogea Racing learnt from this and did the exact same thing, while managing to squeeze out even more power from the biturbo 3.9 liter V8.

If the 488 from Maranello can bring out 720 horsepower and 770 Newton metres (568 pound feet) of torque, the FPlus Corsa project pushes its output even more by another 100 horsepower and 130 Newton metres (96 lb ft), giving it a total output of 820 horsepower (603 kilowatts) and 900 Newton metres (664 lb ft).

The engine isn’t all that was tweaked here, as Pogea Racing decided to play with its exhaust system and decided that it would install stainless steel flaps to make the most out of the V8’s beautiful soundtrack. After all the upgrades that had been done to the powertrain, there is a palpable impact on the Ferrari 488 GTB’s performances as it has become quicker than the Pista.

Spotted in Japan: Honda NSX by Liberty Walk almost looks like it belongs on the track

The Acura NSX, even though it has been produced in the United States, is rightfully claimed as one of its own by the legions of fans in Japan, where it is known as a Honda. For this particular example we are going to talk about, the owner definitely took it even further.

When looking at the images, it seems like the said car has been shot at Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji fish market, or some other similar market there. But it isn’t the place that matters, but the subject. As you can see here, this hybrid supercar looks like it is part of the country’s Super GT championship. But Honda is known for having several NSX-GTs in the series’ top GT500 class.

Though this Acura NSX looks a lot like a track focused car, it actually is a road going car. The supercar was modified by Liberty Walk and has been given a full body kit, making it look wider with a meaner demeanor. It had also been given enough aerodynamic enhancements that it will remind you of an air force fighter - blacked out like the one in the photo.

Leaked photos: Ferrari 488 GTO is lighter but more powerful than GTB model

There are so many stories circulating about whether Ferrari will be building an SUV or a fully electric model that people seem to be forgetting about Ferrari’s soon to be rockstar - the hardcore 488 GTB that will bring back the “GTO” moniker, which will also likely be the most desirable car to carry the prancing horse logo. In a leaked document by California Air Resources Board, there was a “488 Special Series Coupe” that was listed, so we definitely know that it is on its way.

We are expecting the 488 Special Series Coupe to make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March. In a recent closed door dealer meeting where the 488 was the main topic, someone seemed to have sneakily took photos of the slideshow that contained juicy information about the said model, which he then shares with a website with content that is mostly focused on Ferrari.

So, what can we expect from the 488 GTO? Here are some things we know. It will likely be equipped with Ferrari’s most powerful V8 engine ever made, giving out the highest power increase compared to a donor car for a V8 special series.

When Lexus first launched the production version of the LC coupe, it surprised many because it had a strong resemblance with the LF-LC concept that many loved as seen back during the 2012 NAIAS.

Now, the LC coupe has an interesting body design, and it really is not the easiest model to modify, but Liberty Walk decided to do so anyway. And voila, customers can now get this body kit, which is available for both the LC500 as well as the LC500h. They also have two choices when getting the package, the FRP and the CFRP that costs from $13,380 to $19,440 outside of Japan.

So you are probably wondering what you would get with the Liberty Walk package. Well, that includes the Japanese tuner’s massive bolt-on fenders that are now actually considered to be the company’s signature. But that’s not all you will get of course, as this also comes with a front lip, side skirt add-ons, a boot lid-mounted wing, and a more aggressive rear diffuser.

Customizing cars according to client’s tastes and preferences is nothing new for Liberty Walk. After all, the Japanese tuning company has been modifying cars for years. One of its latest works has been leaked to the public, and it comes in the form of a customized BMW M4 Coupe (F82).

Liberty Walk calls its works as remodeling, instead of customization or tuning. But whatever or however the company calls its creations, Liberty Walk has been known for hand-built body kits. From a Lamborghini Murcielago to a Ferrari 458 Italia, Liberty Walk’s customization works has already attracted the attention of the world.

Thus, it is no wonder why an owner of a BMW M4 tapped Liberty Walk to customize his or her luxuriously sporty ride. At first look, this customized BMW M4 may not be as flashy or as attention-grabbing as other tuned M4 models. However, it should be pointed out that Liberty Walk’s customization works revolves on the wishes of the client. Thus, if the client just wanted to have a ride unique from other M4s without gaudy looks, Liberty Walk would follow what was specified by the client.

We have seen photos of the Liberty Walk Honda NSX before, but none of us really appreciated it because these photos did not do the supercar justice. This time, new photos of the same modified model have been released and the new images perfectly highlight the new styling modifications.

This NSX is far from a standard model. It was tuned by Liberty Walk with the help of Forgiato Wheels.

As you can see in the images, the NSX now has a towering rear wing that suits the car really well. And at the same time, it transforms the car’s overall look. The Japanese tuner also equipped the NSX with a fitted air suspension kit to lower the ride, courtesy of AirRex.

Aston Martin may be known for building many of the stylish Bond cars we see on the big screen but nobody really knew how it can get super aggressive when it comes to undermining the competition. Until now.

Andy Palmer, Aston Martin CEO recently discussed with Autoblog and shared more details about its plans for a mid-engine supercar. Like he said, the 488 GTB is the best car in its segment and that they are hell-bent on competing against it.

When asked how the company is going to take on the Ferrari 488 GTB, Palmer admittedly said that they need to recruit some of Ferrari’s key people particularly the head of engineering and the head of powertrains. In fact, he also admitted that there are three of them who are now already working for him.

Japanese aftermarket tuner Liberty Walk is at it again, this time with the Ford Mustang. The tuner is known worldwide because of their outrageous and unique wide body treatments when configuring models like the Toyota Prius and the Lamborghini Aventador, plus many more in between.

As mentioned earlier, one of their latest projects would be the Liberty Walk-tuned Ford Mustang, and this is the first Mustang they have tweaked. To really make it look like it is by the tuner, they gave the example their signature bolt-on fenders, new front and rear bumpers, a new read diffuser, a modified grille, and finally a ducktail spoiler. The pony is dressed in a bright red finish to complete the exterior look. LB gave it an Airrex air suspension kit for an additional $7,900 (¥790,000), to let it sit as close as it can to the pavement.

Before we forget, the Mustang now has a set of black wheels and decals all over the body, to give some accent to its bright red body. For the full-on Works package, customers will have to be willing to spend $6,800 (¥680,000). Or they can also opt for the toned down Performance package at $4,960 (¥496,800), which only includes a tweaked front diffuser, side diffuser, rear diffuser, and a ducktail spoiler.

Liberty Walk, the Japan based tuning company, is back at it again. Though we are used to seeing these tuners modify high-end machines like Lamborghinis and Ferraris, this time they step out of their comfort zone and decide to create a special upgrade of a more regular car. In this case, they did their tricks on the Honda S660.

At first glance, you’ll know that the Honda has been modified by the Japanese tuners. Its exterior alone received a whole bunch of visual upgrades. To be more specific, the mini roadster received new front and rear bumpers, complemented with large side skirts for a more seamless design, with deeper front splitter and rear diffuser. A boot lip spoiler has been added along with the bolt-on fender flares that hug the deep dish alloy wheels that have been wrapped in performance stretched tires. Unfortunately, the set of wheels is not part of the package. Overall, the S660’s body is now wider and looks more masculine

There are two options of the body kit customers can choose from: one of them is priced at 648,000 yen ($5,700), while the other is a little cheaper at 475,000 yen ($4,200). Both body kits are made from FRP, and the current versions will soon be joined by two other variants. As of now, these body kits are only exclusive to the Japanese market. For those who opt for the optional Airrex air suspension for a lower ride, that will cost you an additional 580,000 yen ($5,100).

Ferrari is cooking up something interesting for us. The last time they released the 488 GTB was two years ago, followed by a 488 Spider and several versions of it. And now, it seems like they are preparing for the release of the 458 Speciale’s successor, the 488 GTO.

So, whats there to be excited about? The Ferrari 488 GTO is meant to rival Porsche’s 911 GT2. Therefore, the race-inspired flagship model will have a 3.9 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, capable of producing 700 horsepower (521 kilowatts). That is a huge power difference from its predecessor, and the Spider’s 493-kilowatt (660 hp) engine. It is expected for the 760 Newton-metre torque to increase as well due to the increased boost from the turbochargers.

The track-focused 488 GTO will follow a “more power, less weight” principle - just like the 360 Challenge Stradale and the 430 Scuderia. The company aims to bring the weight just under 1400 kilograms. And to cut down some of its weight, the 488 GTO will be built with a stripped out cockpit, thinner glass, and perhaps a more aggressive aerodynamic kit.

Motor show after motor show. Kicking it off at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, several more auto shows are scheduled for the first half of the year. Over the weekend, there was the Belgrade Motor Show, which will be followed by the Seoul Motor Show happening soon. In April, let us not forget the New York International Auto Show, and fans will be brought to Britain when the country’s largest auto show – the London Motor Show takes place over the first weekend of May.

Japanese car tuning company, Liberty Walk, who is known not just for dressing up cars, but actually remodeling the car itself, is scheduled to attend the upcoming London Motor Show. Established in 2008 in Japan, the company develops body kits for the world’s finest cars. And today, there are over 500 hand-built LB Works cars driving around and outside of Japan, including Europe and the US.

The Japanese tuners will be presenting a McLaren 650s that their company customized at the motor show after its premiere in Geneva. The supercar gets a distinctive yellow exterior with green stripes as accents, and layers of clear paint for extra shine.

If there is one thing we can count on Mansory to do right every time, it is in how it does extreme makeover. With many years of practice, it has become a household name when it comes to auto tuning. One reason is because its designs are always a step ahead of competing brands.

Once again, get ready for a treat as the German auto tuner is bringing the house down with its very own 4XX Siracusa Spider. Mansory has redesigned the Ferrari 488 GTB as inspired by the Siracusa coupe that has taken over Switzerland in 2016. For this year however, the German tuning company presents an open-top 488 GTB with extremely designed body work plus an over-the-top performance package that boasts up to 790hp.

After showcasing a range of Mansory-tuned vehicles earlier this week, all eyes are now on the new Mansory Ferrari 4XX Siracusa Spider. The redesigned exterior dons a newly upgraded front fascia with new diffuser, air inlets and a revised front lip. Masonry has also replaced the side skirts on the Ferrari 488 GTB Spider with a new pair of carbon fiber mirror casings and daytime running lights in LED.

If you want your Ferrari to look more “exclusive”, Misha Rade Djoedvic’s design team has special kits for that special toy of yours! After successfully tuning the Ferrari 458, Misha Designs dresses up a Ferrari 488 GTB with its latest body kits.

The new body kit comes in two different styles, the Limited wide body and the Regular. What’s more, Misha will be making only 20 units of the wide body version which comes with large rear wings, a more protruding rear diffuser and 3-inches wider quarter panels so better hurry.

As for the front end, the design specialist took inspirations from a Formula 1 series. You can see this on the Ferrari 488’s more aggressive styling cues just like the bonnet, carbon lip, large double splitter and the distinctively large carbon fiber component along the middle. The rear section has the same design of the Ferrari FXX-K judging from the large rear diffuser that adapts to the way the Ferrari 488 GTB’s exhaust is being placed.

By itself, the McLaren 650S already delivers excellence both in performance and visuals. However for Japan-based Liberty Walk, it appears that the 650S has yet to show its true potential. This is the reason why the tuner has once again revealed another upgrade package for this amazing model.

This latest body kit puts in fenders that are now wider with a new diffuser in the rear and bumper in the front. All of these are then decorated with red highlights. New as well are the ultra-wide rims and the large wing.

Liberty Walk did not stop there as this upgrade package will come in two versions. The first is priced at $34,000, and will have the upgrades in fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP). The second is pricier at $42,380, and has the body parts in carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) plus the addition of a dry carbon wing.

The Ferrari 488 GTB was first launched on February 3, 2015 prior to its world premiere at the March 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The 488 GTB is the successor of the much-loved 458 Italia and is now the standard bearer for all things “super” in the Ferrari line-up.

This two-seat berlinetta is powered by a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 that makes a distinct sonorous sound and monstrous acceleration, making it one of the most vicious supercars that have ever set foot (or its wheels) on this planet.

The car is named after its 488 cubic centimeter per cylinder displacement (times eight, works out about 3,902 cc displacement). Even with a 0.6-liter deficiency compared to its predecessor, the 488 GTB engine is still capable of producing more power. It can reach up to 661 horsepower and 561 lb.-ft. of torque. With this much power, this dual-clutch seven-speed supercar can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.0 seconds covering a quarter-mile in 10.45 seconds. It is also estimated to have a top speed of 205 mph. The 488 GTB is surely one for the books with power and class as its best asset.

Featuring a polyester body and powered by a 310 hp three-liter V8 engine, the Ferrari 308 Gr4 Pioneer (Ferrari 308 GTB), was a truly imposing vehicle. This race car allowed Jean Claude Andruet to win the 1981 Tour de France Auto.

This is also the same car that allowed Andruet to grab second place at the European Rally Championship in the same year, despite taking part in only seven races while eventual winner Adartico Vudafieri in his Fiat 131 participated in 15 events. Andruet and the 308 repeated their win at the Tour de France Auto in 1982. It was a classic race as Andruet went head to head against Jean Ragnotti and his R5 Turbo.

As a tribute to this classic race car, Ferrari has wrapped a Ferrari 488 GTB with a livery similar to that of the 308 Gr4 Pioneer. This new livery, created in a collaboration between the Italian sports car maker’s Tailor Made division and Parisian Ferrari dealer Charles Pozzi, features the same color scheme as the iconic 308 Gr4 Pioneer -- the iconic blue and white. Moreover, the Ferrari 488 GTB is specified with wheels that closely resemble those of the iconic 308 308 Gr4 Pioneer.

Many theories came out after pictures of a mystery Ferrari being tested a few weeks ago were released online. There doesn’t seem to be a consensus on what it actually is. Some so-called experts have come out to say that this is the new Ferrari Dino. Let’s consider that for a moment. The Ferrari Dino is a low-cost marque from the Italian automaker that was made to cater to the general public.

It was dubbed as the “poor man’s Ferrari”, however it did not necessarily mean that the Dino was as cheap as any regular sedan. It still possessed the same luster as any old Ferrari would minus the Italian automaker’s badge. There were two lines for the Dino sports cars: the GT model which was produced by Ferrari, and the coupe and spider models that were produced by Fiat which were the cheaper models.

The Dino was named in honor of the founder’s late son, Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari, who was the designer of the V6 engine that is being used by the said coupe. The first of its kind, the Ferrari Dino 246 GT, can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds and can reach a top speed of 146 mph. Now, Ferrari Dinos are rare and remain to be a popular classic loved by collectors and Ferrari-lovers in general.

We were all suitably impressed when Ferrari flexed its Italian muscle and blew us away with the new 488 GTB. And it’s all good news, the meaty V8 engine sound is back and its bigger and better than before. That rich and exhilarating engine roar is all down to the Wheelsandmore from Germany.

With the new and improved Stage II, the 3,9l V8 engine is edging closer to the power of the F12berlinetta. You can drive in serene silence but who would want to? With the push of the open button on the exhaust valve control, both the coupe and the convertible Ferrari 488 announce their presence with a rich and uncompromising sound.

The Baesweiler experts have improved the software and with an F1 air filter the vehicle achieves an impressive 730 hp and 850 Nm of torque. With an eye on more power it is exciting to learn that a manifold-kit is being developed.

At this year’s Festival of Speed, Ferrari is unveiling its most recent mid-rear-engined V8 supercar, the 488 GTB, and the FXX-K to UK audiences. These two cars will be participating in the 1.6 mile Goodwood Hill Climb together with a full supporting lineup of Ferrari cars. The 488 GTB would be the first mid-engined twin-turbo V8 from Ferrari ever since the legendary 288 GTO and F40.

It boasts 650CV and has a one-of-a-kind engine management system that produces torque in a controlled and sustained manner with zero turbo lag and response times similar to that of a naturally-aspirated V8 engine. It comes as no surprise that the vehicle is powered by a new 3902 cc V8 turbo engine that produces an outstanding 670 hp at 8,000 rpm and 760 Nm of torque in the seventh gear.

This is different from the 3855 cc unit that is used on the California T. The rear wheels get power through a modified seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox taken from the 458 Italia. Ferrari said that the gearbox is equipped with a new Variable Torque management system that can smoothly release the torque right across the rev range.
