599 body conversion for a new Look

Hi my friends,
I designed a body kit for Ferrari 599 GTB. ( I ma very old designer for Porsche cars ).
I would like to know what you think about this design.
French magazines are so stupid, that they could not see any differences between a 599 GTO, and my custom made bumpers, side skirts, ...

Then, please give me your opinion about this design. Thank you for your help.

Jacque- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Looks very much like a 599 GTO, like they said. Would have to break out a side by side set of photos to tell the difference, especially with GTO wheels. Guess I am as stupid as they are.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Looks like you've resculpted the front brake duct scoops, rear brake duct scoops and added winglets to the lower section of the rear bumper.

Josh- Knew there was something different. But when he paints the car like a GTO and puts on GTO wheels, wonder why people think it looks like a GTO?

Using a common GTO color scheme does mask the changes. It might work better on a white GTO.

Agreed Terry. For the Lambo guys, we sell SV and SL style bumpers, made by an aftermarket company as an upgrade for standard model cars at a substantially lower price. I could see this serving that type of market, except I don't believe it exists in the Ferrari world.

I would have added some 2-tone accents maybe in Black or Silver to highlight the modified bodywork and definitely a set of non-oem wheels as well.

It took too much effort to determine the differences, unless that was the goal?
