Tuning a Lamborghini is a risky endeavor. The supercars that roll out of the factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese already tread the narrow line between the sexy and the obscene, but the bulk of the mod-jobs we've seen run over that line with considerable ferocity and just keep on accelerating. German tuning house IMSA's take on the latest Gallardo LP560-4 is, by comparison, a breath of fresh air.

As you can see, exterior modifications have been kept tastefully restrained. A new front apron, fender flairs, side skirts, rear diffuser and rear wing are all crafted out of carbon fiber. IMSA has also fitted a custom adjustable suspension, split-spoke alloys hiding eight-piston brake calipers up front and six-pot grippers out back, while under the rear glass, IMSA has squeezed an extra 40 ponies out of the Gallardo's 560-horsepower 5.2-liter V10, giving the GTV a revised output of 600. Nothing radical, but then the stock Gallardo is radical enough as it is.

      Notice that they didn't even paint the reflection in the wet pavement the right color.

      As a photoshopper, I can say that this does not fool anyone, but whoever did this is real talented.

        I don't know if I'd say really talented. I find it mediocre. There's many people out there who can do better - I always wonder why companies don't find them. I just don't understand why you wouldn't want something that doesn't look perfect released to the media. I'm a Photoshopper too - and I find it kinda messy in a few areas.

        Not just the intakes, but the headlights and the wheels, too.
