Very interesting. I kinda like the wing also!

FWIW...not a US-spec car.

Cant view it at work...

Interested in seeing how it looks, but that sounds like a pretty expensive mod.

it has the 06 roof but your right i don't think that is a U.S. spec car cause someone on here would have known about it before, but a very cool and expensive mod i'm sure

Looks like an 06 roof, but the 'scoop' has been moved all the way to the front. Also always wondered what the headlight housing would look like in body color.... whomp, there it is..

Very interesting. I like, and don't like at the same time...
Cheers,

if you were going to take the time to move it to the front why wouldn't you make it functional

If it is a naturally aspirated 06 car, making it functional wouldn't make it functional, if you know what I mean.

I like some things about it and then I don't like some things about it. The rear view looks meaner, yet more finished like a road going car and less like a race car. So if you want the track look it doesn't work, but if you want the bad-ass super-car look, it does kinda work.

Anyway that's my opinion on the rear. The rest of the mods don't do anything for me.

I agree. I do like the wing alot because it spans the width of the rear more. I think the stock wing is a little too small. If you add 2-3 inches on both ends to the stock wing then I think it's perfect. (what every guy wants - an extra 2-3 inches)

This car is obviously built by a RICORR.

The rear diffuser looks decent from FAR away. But check out the bottom right hand corner. It looks like fiberglass is cracked.

I can just about guaruntee that under close expection none of these modifications are done cleanly. Im sure there all hack jobs.

Check out the bottom of the sideskirts.

I think the color matched headlights clean the front end up a bit... A classier look if you ask me...

Like others, the rest isn't doing it for me, but I do appreciate the work that went into the car even if not me exact style... A good "show" car...

Best,

Phil

Yeah, the front splitter looks like such a second-rate design too. Not much thought went into making it, nevermind actual craftsmanship.
