Mark Ernst – Exotic Car Gear – Forgeline Wheels – VF Engineering & a Lambo LP550 !

2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550

Mark Ernst’s 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo made its debut in June at the Dayton Ohio Cars & Coffee Ace Spade Rally Edition. An amazing project that incorporates the power of a VF Engineering Supercharger, a one off set of Forgeline Wheels, and an excessive amount of carbon fiber trim by Exotic Car Gear.

Mark approached Exotic Car Gear with a vision to incorporate a hybrid carbon fiber material “Carbon Reflections” to a large part of his 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550. The material incorporates a reflective copper strand in an offset weave pattern, (3k Twill weave (2×2) 50″/127cm 5.9oz/200gsm Carbon Fiber Fabric) . This gives the carbon material almost an orange flash when manipulated by lighting.

From the inside out, Exotic Car Gear worked their magic in creating Carbon Fiber pieces for the following interior accents for Mark’s Gallardo:

  • Custom Carbon Fiber Steering Wheel ( Flat Bottom Conversion, Copper Carbon flash Top and Bottom Sections, Added Pistol Grips, Perforated Black Leather, Contrasting Orange Top reference line and Orange Hand Stitching. )
  • Gauge Cluster Surround Trim.
  • Center Gauge Trim Panel
  • Radio Trim Bezel
  • Center Console Shift Trim
  • Center Console Tray
  • Dashboard HVAC Vent Trim
  • Inner Door Handle Trim
  • Custom Speaker Enclosure

The exterior of the Gallardo received even more of the Copper Reflections Carbon fiber components by Exotic Car Gear.

  • Front Carbon Fiber Splitter
  • Front Bonnet Area Trim
  • Outer Mirror Casings
  • Superleggera Side Splitters
  • Superleggera Rear Spoiler
  • Engine Bay Panel Set
  • Engine Air Box Cover
  • Rear Quater Panel Trim Plates.
  • Rear Diffuser Assmembly

Mark beast of a LP550 is equipped with a VF Engineering supercharger that cranks out 760HP from the 5.2L V10 engine. Powdercoated to match the orange accented trim it is framed like a gem with Exotic Car Gears matched weave “V” pattern engine bay trim panel set.

Mark’s Gallardo sits on a custom, one off set of Forgeline Wheels. It rides on 245/30ZR20 & 305/30ZR20 Pirelli P-Zero tires and 20×9/20×11 Forgeline AL301 wheels finished with Transparent Copper centers & Black Pearl outers.
