Liberty Walk got their start creating body kits for the Nissan GT-R. The style is a bit controversial with its wide fender flares attached via exposed screws. Which is a likely homage to the 70s-era Datsun Z-cars. Liberty Walk has expanded their business outside of the GT-Rs and now offers Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Huracán, and Lamborghini Aventador kits as well. This time, they have set their sights on the Audi R8.
For the Audi R8, Liberty Walk has added their signature flared and rear front fenders, along with a bespoke front splitter, extended side skirts, ducktail spoiler and carbon rear diffuser.
There are two examples at 2015 SEMA Show this year. The first a Nardo Gray R8 V10 riding on Airrex air suspension, they also enhanced the sound of the 5.2-liter V10 with a custom iPE (Innotech Performance Exhaust) exhaust and it’s fitted with the latest Rotiform forged 3pc deep concave SNA wheels.
The second example is black and it fitted with Rennen Forged wheels.
