Fresh off of Tokyo Auto Salon 2024, Liberty Walk announced one of their most unique and extraordinary body kit conversions – as if they did not have enough currently to go on.
Picking off of 2023’s premiere of their Ferrari F40 widebody conversion, it seemed that it was difficult for Liberty Walk to let go from how viral their take on the 80s supercar went – they had to come back for seconds. So they did, except in a much smaller, compact form.
Enter the ‘LB40’, a Ferrari F40-inspired conversion kit made specifically for the Autozam AZ-1, a kei-car originally released by Mazda. This baby Ferrari distills all of the looks of Liberty Walk’s Ferrari F40 into a more affordable and accessible package, without sacrificing any details of their craftsmanship.
Carried over from the original car are the vertical-opening doors, glass greenhouse, roof, and upper rear deck. Clearly influenced parts of the F40 include the front clamshell hood and headlights, as well as close-to-accurate, but still hilarious-sized rear taillights, spoiler, and triple exhaust pipes. The LB40 also rides on 16″ front and 17″ forged wheels wrapped in Toyo Tires. Despite the supercar energy that radiates off of this compact sports car, the original powertrain, a 657cc turbocharged 3-cylinder engine and five-speed manual gearbox, have remained untouched.
The AZ-1 LB40 kit will set you back 22,600 USD – with another 14,300 USD added for all four forged wheels. Want a piece of the supercar life, but can’t afford the expenses or running costs yet? The LB40 for an Autozam AZ-1 should be the perfect alternative.
