Click above for hi-res shots of STRUT's Gallardo collection

Has that yellow Lamborghini Gallardo been sitting on the lawn for a while because it's simply not getting you the attention you want? Or have all those other LP560-4 owners made it too hard for you to use the Phone Number Collecting Set? If so, STRUT could have just the right bit of jazz to put the rage back in your bull.

An 11-piece accessory kit in carbon fiber and steel includes grilles for the front, side, and rear intakes, and the engine cover and bumper vents, as well as a STRUT shield for the front of the car. According to STRUT, the accessories give the Lambo "a disctinct, personalized appearance," because pulling up to the party in a Gallardo just wasn't distinctive enough. The price of personalization: $25,000 for the basic set, $35,000 if you gotta be a baller and choose the titanium edition. And no, that doesn't include the STRUT wheels -- those are $9,000 extra.

        It's probably not good to put them all in the same basket but in my opinion, the aftermarket stuff usually looks less like a cohesive design and more like an attempt to look "badass". Each to their own though.

      Did Clarkson really sell his Gallardo Spyder, or was he being sarcastic?

      "Recently I drove my Lamborghini from Guildford to Chipping Norton. It’s about 90 miles and I had my picture taken 107 times. I counted. This meant I couldn’t use the phone or pick my nose or break the speed limit or sing along to the radio or even, on the straight bits, catch forty winks. It was so wearisome that when I got home I sold the car."

      I like it except for the Strut wheels. The car needs to be lowered a tad when you add larger wheels.

      Strut makes the most incredibly overpriced grills and body-doodads on the planet. Not just this kit, but their grills etc. for SUV's and stuff too. For $35k you would think it would be a body-kit or something rather than some minor snap on decorative carbon bits.

      This will pretty much separate those who bought their Lambo to enjoy the driving experience, and those who bought it to be seen in it.
      Why would you bother unless you were really, really desparate to be noticed?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Looks like I might have touched a nerve there. Did you just buy this kit John?
        I guess it comes down to the old saying: “Those who march to the beat of a different drum often have bad rhythm”. I like a different look as much as the next man but I have never seen an aftermarket mod that has looked better than the original. This is no exception.

        Don't be a fu**ing idiot. I know you really aren't that naive. When people choose to buy a Lamborghini you can guarantee that it is a combined factor of wanting to drive it and experience it's performance, and wanting to be seen in it. Aesthetics will always come into play when buying a car like this. Who doesn't want to be seen in a Lambo? Regardless of whether the individual is a driving enthusiast or not the feeling you get while strolling down the road in a Lambo is something anyone would enjoy. Lambos will draw attention anyways. You don't need any "jewelry" for that.

        Hey, Dude. Its not all about trying to be noticed in your car. Customizing your car is like getting dressed. Its a part of your style. Do you like wearing what everybody else is wearing? Or do you like to have your own style? This is just something to separate you and your Lambo from the rest.

      Strut quality is garabage for what you pay. These 'carbon fibre' parts will be no different from their flat sheet stock potmetal/chickenwire grills.
      how do these parts enhance the car or make it trult different from a standard gallardo?

      After the last year of Lamborghini-related entries here at Autoblog, I'm getting the impression that the much lower-priced Lotus is for serious driving and the Lamborghini is for playing dress-up.
