A Ferrari F430 Murcielago...or a Lamborghini F430?

The first time I saw the front end of a Lamborghini Reventon my knees went slightly weak. The large gaping holes and side strakes on the left and the right sides were another unique way to channel air to the car's radiators and also to cool down the brakes. This front end styling was then used on the Gallardo Superleggera and the Murcielago Superveloce. However, no one told Japanese Tuners cum used car resellers, maintenance garage, car insurance agents extraordinaire Super Veloce that they could not graft it on to a Ferrari F430. And so they did just that.

Super Veloce has done something most Ferrari and Lamborghini owners would never have thought of. The F430 Super Veloce Racing, as it is now referred to, has the bumper of a Murcielago, intakes and side slits/strakes, skirts, rear diffuser and all as well as that Lamborghini-like GT Wing used on the Murcielago SV too. The front end however looks slightly out of place with the more rounded overall styling of the F430. Of course, this is just my opinion of the F430 SVR.

Aside from the very mixed up looks, which at this very moment may be causing Enzo Ferrari to be turning in his grave, the F430 SVR has NOVITEC goodies added to it. The NOVITEC wheels are 19inch at the front and 20in at the rear and the NOVITEC suspension lowers the ride height even more than standard for that totally showcar look. The 4.3liter V8 has been left standard except for a NOVITEC muffler, which should free up more prancing horses and a lot more of the fabulous noise that the F430 makes.

The sole demonstrator unit was previewed at the 2010 Tokyo Import Car Show and as usual, no prices have been announced. Would this be considered as blasphemy or plain Japanese innovation?
