BJ Motors is very proud to offer this 2010 Ferrari 458 Liberty Walk SEMA Show Car. This was the First Liberty Walk 458 built in North America and is signed by Wataru Kato. The Liberty Walk body kit was installed by Platinum Motor Works in Los Angeles.

Liberty Walk was established by Wataru Kato when he was 26 years old in his native town of Nagoya, Japan. "Kato" is a well known car guru and a pioneer in building custom body kits for Japanese, American and European Exotic vehicles. However, he wanted to expand his local artistry into the US and Global marketplace.

In 2013, Kato partnered up with DUB Magazine and shipped two of his creations to be displayed at SEMA; a Ferrari 458 Italia and a Nissan GTR.  Jack, the owner of Platinum Motor Works (PML) out of Los Angeles attended SEMA and met Kato. There, he saw Kato's widebody works of art and knew at that moment he wanted to build a widebody Liberty Walk Ferrari.

So, in 2014, Kato & Platinum Motor Works partnered up and commissioned the creative team at PML to build the first Liberty Walk by a US-based company. The car was unveiled at the DUB Booth at the LA Auto Show in 2014, and also made an appearance at the SEMA show that same year.

Platinum Motor Works (PML) teamed up with several power house manufacturers to make the build happen:

GT-Haus:
This distributor of German Engineer Exhaust Systems completely removed the factory exhaust and installed a new Meisterschaft system, which not only lightened the car by 47 lbs, but it increased the factory horsepower
from 570hp to 585hp after tuning.

ADV.1:
Created a spectacular 3-piece wheel named "Circle of Trust", due to the ring designs that are floating above the lips.

PML:
Decided to strip down the Rosso Dino-colored 458 Italia to the frame and paint it in a opaque color; Grigio Medio. It was a color that was not chosen often during spec builds, but PML took a leap of faith and painted the entire frame and complete body. From there, a trend has started, and now other car manufacturers have created paints to compete with this color scheme. 

ACCUAIR:
In 2018, engineers, along with master suspension installer and fabricator "Chassis Fab", installed a complete airbag suspension to allow the car to be lifted and lowered without compromising the integrity of the factory suspension's performance. The system has a "smart" lift system with auto E-LEVEL as well as a wired remote control to adjust height settings. The outcome is a smooth, luxurious ride without the notorious "bounce" airbags are known for. Vair compressors along with the ENDO tank from Accuair were used to save space under the trunk lid. 

Charismatic and outgoing, Kato is the perfect spokesperson for his company, and his low and wide show cars are a breathtaking mixture of his past rebellion and present boldness. Liberty Walk is now a globally-recognized brand in the Automotive world and commands attention at car shows around the globe, like the Geneva Auto Show in Switzerland, Essen Motor Show in Germany, and the Tokyo Auto Salon in Japan, just to name just a few. Liberty Walk now has distributors around the world in countries such as Canada, Dubai, England, Vietnam, Australia, and the USA. And it continues to grow in popularity and brand worldwide.

Included in the photos are a few photos of the car while at the auto show, as well as Kato visiting PML to see the completed project, where he is seen autographs the winglets.
