VITT Squalo Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Vamps in Violet [w/ Video]
It’s hard to believe, in this present age of boring, inoffensive whites and beiges, that automotive color palettes used to be far more diverse and vibrant. Take a look at most car brochures printed prior to about 1980 and you’ll see a marvelous mix of greens, reds, blues, browns, yellows, even the occasional purple or pinkish hue. Unfortunately, such vivacious, dare-we-say subversive pigments are nowadays reserved for exotic cars like Lamborghinis.
But not even Lamborghini offers the zany shade seen on this Aventador Roadster as a standard color. Instead, it’s the work of Japanese tuner VITT Squalo. But they didn’t stop with the color change; they also added new body parts like a front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and fixed rear wing, plus custom quad tailpipes, accent lighting for the underbody, wheel wells, vents and other key areas, a killer set of wheels with body-color-matching accents on the spokes and a smattering of decals (including one that incorporates a rhinestone version of Lamborghini’s raging bull logo on the front trunk lid).
The candy violet theme continues on the interior, as VITT Squalo has applied it to the center stack, door panels, shift paddles, gauge surrounds and elsewhere. And also like the exterior, there are some additional lighting fixtures to provide some violet illumination. Are some elements of this car over-the-top? Absolutely. But when a car is already hyper-outrageous from the factory, why not take things a step (or five) further when it comes time to modify?
