They say imitation is the ultimate form of flattery, though we're not sure what Italian supercar makers Ferrari and Lamborghini would make of this lot.

Japanese bodykit company Albermo has transformed the new Toyota RAV4 into a pretend Lamborghini Urus, and the current generation Toyota Prius into a Ferrari of some kind.

The ‘XR51’ bodykit (shown above) fits a Lamborghini Urus SUV inspired front bumper onto the current fifth generation Toyota RAV4.

The ‘SP42’ kit (shown below) adds a Ferrari Portofino-esque front bumper to the fourth-generation Toyota Prius.

Cleverly, both models carry over their existing headlights; only the front fascias need to be changed.

The bodykits – which come unpainted – are priced between ¥186,000 (AU$2584) for the Prius SP42 kit and ¥232,000 (AU$3369) for the RAV4 XR51 kit.

Albermo’s transformative kits are not the first of their kind for Japanese bodykit companies. Earlier this year, DAMD Inc. began releasing elaborate dress up kits for the Suzuki Jimny.
