I have been attending the Geneva Motor Present for the better portion of a decade, and it really is grow to be my preferred stop on the whole present circuit, in big component since of all the exotic automakers, coachbuilders and green startups. I also love the Palexpo’;s constantly mind-bending displays of tuners, who typically operate solely on 6-figure automobiles. Some provide subtle improvements and personalization programs, but most seem to be hellbent on currently being much more outlandish and bizarre than the up coming, a area complete of millionaire class clowns. Far more usually than not, I spy one thing and believe to myself “What variety of Nimrod would do that to a completely excellent ____ ?” This 12 months, that rhetorical question is in truth a self-answering a single.
The jokes, they compose themselves.
But critically, if you’;re wondering who would take a flawlessly wonderful Ferrari 458 Italia or a Lamborghini Aventador and affix a wild body kit of dubious aerodynamic and aesthetic merit at fantastic additional value (each to the car’;s MSRP and to its assuredly grenaded resale worth), the response could really well be Nimrod Elite Tuning, a newer higher-finish restyling house out of Slovakia. That last locational tidbit may also explain the company’;s uncommon name, which is probably a nod to a mighty Biblical hunter (descendant of Ham and a king of Shinar, Nimrod is talked about in Genesis and Chronicles) and not meant to be taken as a synonym for “idiot” or “moron.”
In any case, not considerably details is offered on these 2 Nimrods, but the white and red-trimmed 458 is the Katyusha, and it seems to be an homage to the ultra-uncommon Ferrari FXX track vehicle. The Aventador-primarily based model, dubbed Avanti Rosso, channels a bit of Lamborghini’;s own Sesto Elemento. Sadly, there have been no Nimrod representatives on hand who had been in a position to provide even more information, and the company’;s official internet site descriptions are of small assist. We have got an inquiry in and will allow you know if/when we find out more. In the meantime, check out out our galleries and allow us know what you think of these aftermarket specials in Remarks.
