    Premier4509 launches kit for outgoing Lamborghini Gallardo

    Did you have enough of Premier4509's outlandish tuning after viewing the tuner Continental GT? Judging from the comments left by our readers, you most definitely did, but in case you missed out, the Japanese aftermarket firm has released a similar body kit for the Lamborghini Gallardo.
    Set aside the extroverted aero kit for a second and the big question mark follows: why are they just now releasing a kit for a model that's already been replaced? The Gallardo LP560-4 debuted last month in Geneva and effectively replaces the model on which Premier4509 has based this kit. For those with an existing baby Lambo, however, plus a chunk of cash and a taste appetite for the extreme, Premier4509's Gallardo kit consists of a new bumpers front and rear, side skirts, a rear spoiler and optional stainless exhaust tips, plus the same forged rims as seen on the company's Bentley. The front end clearly draws its inspiration from the Lamborghini Reventon. The parts are all made of carbon fiber, which, as Premier4509 points out, has been laboriously hand-stitched together because some panels are actually wider than the sheets in which the material comes. Premier4509 also notes that it is working on new kits for Bentleys, Maseratis and Astons Martin, so better hide your exotic wheels now before it's too late. Click through for more details and high-res images can be viewed in the gallery below.

    PRESS RELEASE:
    Premier4509™ Unveils Gallardo Design Package
    The Lamborghini Gallardo kit expands product line up
    Paramount, Calif. – (April 21, 2008). Premier4509™ has added the Lamborghini Gallardo to their lineup of aero kits for exotic vehicles. The latest release from the company features aerodynamic enhancing redesigns for the front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper and rear spoiler. Optional stainless steel exhaust tips will also be offered with the package.
    The pieces will be hand made in Japan and will be built using a combination of Carbon Fiber and FRP. "We've been in this business for twenty years now and we've always been known for our quality. We've gone a step up for our Premier line up and these parts will be flawless. For this line up we have assembled our best teams of craftsmen in Japan to hand build these parts." said Hironoa Yokomaku, president of Premier4509. "For example, the rear diffuser on our Gallardo kit is larger than the raw sheets of supplied carbon fiber. To ensure there are no seam lines from the adjoining sheets, we have a technician whose sole responsibility is to line up the individual rows of carbon fiber with a needle."
    The design of the kit will aid the aerodynamic efficiency and will direct the airflow to vent crucial components on the vehicle. "The design is reminiscent of where Lamborghini is headed in design. I wanted to capture that essence while offering a dramatic option to Gallardo owners," said Yokomaku.
    The Premier4509 collection is rapidly expanding its line up and has included the introduction of a wide body kit for the Bentley Continental GT and the Lamborghini Murcielago. The line will also expand to include more products for Bentley, Maserati and Aston Martin.
    Premier4509™ is based in Tskuba, Japan with offices in Paramount, California. Premier4509 is a brand developed and created by VeilSide, a Japanese automotive performance company that and specializes in automotive parts that include aero design, engine parts and luxury wheels. The company owns two world records for racing as well as several design awards from the Tokyo Auto Salon. For more information about Premier4509, visit the website: www.Premier4509.com

    The Gallardo is a beautiful car to start with, why do they need to do this to it, this is what people do to their Vauxhall Corsa's. Although it may suit some peoples tastes.

    True! This one isn't that bad.
    The front bumper looks identical to the LP560-4 one... So what is their point?

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    As for a street machine I would say EW, as most other members have.

    But as a race car I doesn't look half bad.
