BF Performance gives you wings...
Stuttgart tuning specialists BF performance have produced improvement packages for the latest Lamborghinis that will make them fly even faster. And in the case of the Gallardo that’s almost literal - with the addition of specially crafted, vertically lifting, ‘wing’ doors. The Murciélago benefiting from performance and styling improvements aping the ‘R-GT’ racing car.
The name of the company is derived from its owner’s initials – ‘BF’ for Bob Fortsner, the legendary Lamborghini specialist with many years of experience. Forstner only uses the highest-quality materials in designs made by skilled engineers. He promises his customers “an individual style, with more performance and driving pleasure”.
So the Murciélago receives an aggressive racing look like its FIA GT namesake, with a front spoiler/splitter, two-piece light alloy wheels, a large tail spoiler, transparent engine cover, plastic headlight covers, and louvred front bodywork.
Inside the bigger car the interior has been revised to include new leather bucket seats with 5-point harness, a high-grade steel roll cage, and numerous carbon-fibre parts. BF can also fit a TV/navigation system and rear-facing camera for better visibility.
The Gallardo was the first Lamborghini for a long time that did not have doors that opened upwards and forwards like the Diablo, Countach and Murciélago. Now buyers of the company’s smallest car can enjoy the true ‘Sant’ Agata Bolognese experience’ with the modifications made by BF to the door mechanism to change its direction of travel. The company can also supply a carbon rear wing, a carbon front spoiler, and a rear diffuser. If specified the visible engine parts can be colour-matched to the bodywork.
A complete sports exhaust system completes the job on either car, thus guaranteeing a suitable sporty engine note. For the Murciélago this is achieved with a stainless steel final section that replicates the look of the original.
