Exotic Car News!

Auto Veloce is a name well known in the tuner world. The custom car parts company makes bolt on enhancements that improve aesthetic design and / or aerodynamics on production cars.

Items the business produces might include a variety of aftermarket parts items you can purchase and install to modify your exotic car or sport car such as:

  • ground effects
  • bumpers
  • aerodynamic kits
  • wings
  • diffusers
  • wheels

Edmunds Insideline writes (July 13, 2010):

Japanese tuner Auto Veloce has created a Lamborghini-inspired body kit for the outgoing Ferrari F430. It was officially unveiled at the 2010 Special Import-Car Show, or SIS, in Japan, and it's now available for order in both spider and berlinetta variants.

The package is part of Auto Veloce's product line dubbed "Super Veloce Racing," and includes a full exterior body kit.

Like a lot of the aggressive models from Lamborghini, the F430 gets a huge front airdam, quarter-panel intakes and a monstrous rear wing.

The kit is blacked out to make it look even more like Lamborghini's 2010 Murcielago LP670-4 Super Veloce. New wheels and a rear bumper with a diffuser are also part of the modifications.

According to Edmunds, a similar but less aggressive package with the Lambo look is also offered for the Ferrari 360 Modena.

However, before you go bolting anything on your Ferrari because you are feeling artistic or creative, think about this --

Would painting a mustache on the Mona Lisa improve her value even if it made her more attractive to some people?

While the products are well made and look hot, they tend to devalue the car at resale for straying away from the auto manufactures carefully thought out look, presentation, and style. 

As such, if you feel compelled to alter your ride, be sure to keep all the body parts you take off in pristine shape so you can reinstall them for a new owner when and if the time comes to sell the vehicle.

    The f430 looks great with the more aggressive kit, it's about time this model looked more angry and as performance related as it is. Outside of the Enzo it seems to me that Ferrari has kept it's cars rather plain and it's no wonder why lamborghini is doing so well. As far as the resale value on such modifications, I agree to keep the oem parts but isn't part of the exotic lure the fact that your car stands out? I say customize till' your hearts content, "love the one you're with!"
