Most of us dream of owning a Lamborghini or Ferrari one day, whether it’s as a token of accomplishment, a passion for supercars or, in many cases, a status symbol. But what about the rich and famous who already have these dream cars?
If your friends are all driving around in the same six-figure wheels as you, what do you do to stand above the rest?
As it turns out, there are quite a few things that you can do to your car to outshine your millionaire friends. In this post, we’ll take a look at how the rich and famous customize their cars.
Liberty Walk Body Kits
When it comes to making supercars look way more outlandish than you could ever imagine, nobody does it better and more tastefully than Liberty Walk - otherwise known as LB Performance. The Japanese company is known for taking Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Nissan GTRs and other supercars to another level with their impressive overhauls.
Super wide flared wheel arches, massive rims, floor-hugging air suspension, wings to rival those of biplanes, exhausts that can be heard from miles away and eye-catching paint jobs are what you can expect after taking your supercar into a Liberty Walk garage.
Back when Wataro Kato established Liberty Walk, his tiny garage could only exhibit three cars at a time. Today, the brand has showrooms and is recognised by car enthusiasts around the world. Perhaps the most admirable element of Liberty Walk is their iconic message: “Imagine all the people living life in peace.”
Custom License Plates
Have you ever seen a high-end car driving around with number plates that had only one or two characters? Believe it or not, these simple personalised plates can cost more than the supercar they’re put on, with the price shooting up as the number of characters decreases.
Kahn Design founder Azfal Kahn recently put his Bugatti Veyron’s plate up for auction at a whopping £14,700,405 after added government charges. And what did that plate have on it? Nothing more than “F1.”
Granted, incorporating something similar on your own vehicle doesn’t have to cost as much as a private island.
Companies such as Number1Plates offer premium personalised replacement plates in a variety of styles at a much lower cost. They even have a plate designer feature on their website, as well as a kit to stick your new plate on.
Tired of your Ferrari’s boring “resale red” paint job? Why not spice things up with a chrome gold, matte purple or frozen grey wrap? Keep in mind that they can set you back a pretty penny - depending on the colour and material used, you can expect to pay upwards of £60,000 for a luxury wrap.
If you don’t fancy tampering with your current supercar, you could always buy an outlandish version that’s customised by another brand, such as Mansory or Brabus. For their luxury overhaul, you can expect to pay around double, if not more for your new ride. So, there you have it, proof that there’s just about no limit to what wealth can bring your way.
