You say you have a Toyota Rav4 but what you really want is a Lamborghini Urus SUV? Wouldn’t we all. But now you can actually fulfill that dream and make it a reality. It is from one of those Japanese aftermarket companies that turn a Kei van into a VW Microbus. Their latest fiberglass conversion kit is this Lamborghini Urus front end for Toyota Rav4s. And you thought you had seen everything. Now it is a simple process to turn a Rav4 into a Urus with one of Albermo’s kits.
The company takes Toyotas and turns them into Italian racecars with stripes and Ferrari decals
Albermo is a tuner that specializes in Toyota products. Besides making this Urus kit they deal mainly in adding racing stripes and fake Ferrari decals onto an assortment of Toyota sedans. We can’t read Japanese so we can’t tell you why.
The kit consists of four separate pieces that look well done if you’re into this sort of thing. The unpainted front bumper starts at $1,300 give or take depending on exchange rates. The honeycomb mesh inserts go for an additional $75. A restyled rear panel to continue the Urus theme will cost around $730. The final flourish is four side moldings that will set you back an additional $150. Then just like that, your Rav4 becomes a Urus. It’s a great time to be alive!
Who is to say the Urus front end on a Rav4 is any better or worse than the stock front end?
When you’re all done, who is to say the Urus front end on a Rav4 is any better or worse than the stock front end? If you’re up for doing this go all of the way. Purchase the top-of-the-line Rav4 Prime and you’ll get a plug-in hybrid with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder along with an electric motor. This gives you 302 hp that goes from 0 to 60 in 5.8 seconds. The only Toyota faster is the Supra.
You’re probably asking yourself “why bother” but the thing is that we all aspire to that high-end look for our Toyotas. Now is your chance to break out of that lowly Rav4 and turn it into something worth 10-times more. Amaze your friends and impress your neighbors.
The need to be unique must gnaw at some owners
Toyota makes a gazillion Rav4s. They’re everywhere. If you realize after seeing a million Rav4s you’re looking for something unique then you’re not completely out of luck. Last year Toyota sold almost 450,000 Rav4s. Heck, this year in the worst conditions ever for selling vehicles Toyota has already sold over 130,000 Rav4s in the US. We’re talking 2020. So as you can see the demand is very high but the need to be unique must gnaw at some owners. If that’s you then your problem is now solved.
A Urus will cost around $207,000 in the US. You can get into a new 2020 Rav4 for around $25,000. The frugal of you out there will see the advantages of buying a Rav4, this kit, and a house, with the difference in price.
So the next time you see a lowly Rav4 think about this great and simple way to turn it into a Urus. We know we’ll never be able to forget it the next time we see one.
