Lamborghini Gallardo receives full makeover by Titan Motorsports

July 30th, 2013 Comments off

Ralph is no stranger to custom cars, we’ve previously supercharged his Aston Martin and you may recall seeing his wild Prowler in a past blog post. For his latest custom he wanted something a bit more exotic, and after a successful day of bidding at the Meccum auction we found ourselves with a Gallardo delivered to our front door. The car was original a deep blue with grey interior and in great shape, the perfect candidate for a tear down buildup custom tailored to the customers specifications.
The car would be inspired by the Gallardo lightweight version the Superleggera, while giving the car a wilder interior and exterior for that wow factor to make it strand out from your “standard” Lamborghini Gallardo.

The exterior was treated to a metallic grey paintjob, complete with a Candy Apple red stripe down the sides. The Superleggera inspiration is followed with the addition of a carbon glass top decklid and SL wing, as well as carbon side skirts. The calipers also received a coat of candy apple red paint to make them standout behind the black Finnspeed SL style forged wheels. The interior was also completely redone, with contrasting black and red quilted stitch napa leather covering every panel. Panels that didn’t receive the leather touch were instead treated to real carbon fiber, keeping with the SL and carbon fiber theme of the build.

Many have followed our Lamborghini work as a result of our custom twin turbo kits which can be seen terrorizing streets around the world. Not everyone is looking for 4 digit horsepower however, and in this case Ralph wanted to take advantage of the cars naturally aspirated V10 but still wanted more power. We developed a Titan Motorsports exhaust with high flow cats to allow the engine to breath easier and give the car an exotic, slightly obnoxious loud tone to match the wild exterior. This exhaust was combined with a carbon fiber high flow air box and custom Titan Motorsports tuning of both the ECU and transmission computer to compensate for the increases in airflow. The engine bay was further enhanced with carbon fiber engine panels and matching candy apple red valve covers and intakes, sure to wow show attendees at the many concourse events Ralph frequents. Expect to see this car taking home many best of show awards in its hometown in Southwest Florida, we look forward to having it on display at Festivals of Speed this fall when they make their way to Orlando.
