The LARTE Group creates tuning kits for over 10 years. In 2012, the LARTE Design brand launched, starting from Infiniti, gradually adding such brands as Range Rover, Mercedes, Lexus and Tesla to it’s production line. Repeatedly presenting their tuning kits at international exhibitions, we got our brand recognition and the ability to move forward, opening an office in Germany and in United States.
The highest recognition of the company’s professionalism is the constantly growing number of customers in Europe, the USA, the Middle East and Russia. Most sophisticated clients who have extensive experience with the best design studios of the world choose us more and more often.
A serious car is not just a safe and comfortable means of transport; it is also the reflection of its owner’s character. There are no similar characters, so it’s worthwhile thinking how, using additional options, to highlight important and individual traits in your car which are only typical of you. That’s why a tuning studio should work according to the standards of couture fashion, where each “attire” for the car is customized, according to the dimensions and wishes of the owner. LARTE Design pursues 2 paradoxical goals: preserve the recognisability and express the unique character of each car. Like Swiss watch makers, our specialists devote utmost attention to the improvement of the exterior and, more rarely, of the interior, accentuating their individuality.
The turning of a key, soft roar of the engine – the voice of the vehicle, and the start. No matter how many tuning kits have been developed by LARTE Design, each of them becomes unique, the soul of only one single car. Yours.

The name LARTE means “the art to create”, which reflects the company’s credo – to create following the laws of art. The emblem contains all symbols which reflect the company’s philosophy. The royal blue is the color of noble origin, and it also symbolizes the Alpine sky which the company founders saw in Germany. The four horseshoes mean good luck and happiness, as well as the succession from a horse to a car. You can notice the letter “K” in one of the horseshoes, which stands for “company”. The eight stripes symbolize eternity and prosperity. The emblem is a harmonious combination of all these signs and a proud symbol of the company on the grille of each modified car.
LARTE Design actively participates in specialized international shows and is open to any kind of interesting cross-marketing projects. Our core business principles are quality and transparent relationships with partners. We are always open for a dialog, new projects and the pursuit of perfection.
Everything begins with sketches
At the start, it is the cornerstone, the first and most interesting creative process in the development of the future tuning kit prototype.
Dozens, and if necessary, hundreds of sketches are prepared by artists of our design studio in Germany. Usually magazine art directors check the color and form balance by hanging pages with design layouts on the walls of their office.
The same happens here: dozens of sketches are needed to develop one car tuning kit, to see its whole image and individual details. This stage is full of numerous emotional and sometimes what seems like infinite discussions, but at the same time requires bold and timely decision-making.
The experts of the creative team thoroughly analyze technical features of the car and combine design with technical capabilities. The best sketch is selected and elaborated in additional drawings. In this process the future image is shaped and the ideas, thoughts and emotions obtain their final form.
The transformation of the car appearance is the result of thorough and precise work of the designer and model maker with modeling clay.
This is one of the most expensive and complicated materials used in the development of concept cars and tuning packages. No machine or software can replace the art of manual modeling. Only the direct interaction with the car, when we put a part of our soul and our feelings into it, enables the appearance of elements embodying our design philosophy.
Amazing process of appearance of new surfaces and lines mesmerizing the eye. In this fascinating process the model maker creates the individual image of the car, outlining and shaping new facets and surfaces, like a jeweler. The unique combination of seemingly contradictory lines is the real art of transformation.
The specialists of LARTE Design make sure of quality and precision of their design, and the installation of each kit is as exciting as a theatre performance is for actors.
Shaping the parts
Production is the pride of our company. We have exceptional conditions for the development of unique premium tuning packages. The production includes all working steps from an approved sketch to the final installation of the package on the car. A tightly-knit, creative and professional team is the most important element of LARTE Design’s success.
The modern production combines traditions of the time-tested manual labor, new technologies and equipment and high-tech composite materials made of basalt fiber and carbon fabrics.
Preserving and using manual labor is an important part of the company’s philosophy. Thanks to our highly skilled employees we manage to create exclusive design tuning packages and produce them in limited quantities with the highest quality.
It is well known that handmade items are the inevitable attribute of luxury and symbolize the high status of their owner.
The fitting of tuning parts is done manually for each specific car. This process is up to the standards of tailor’s work at haute couture ateliers. No matter how perfect the model’s figure is, there are sometimes small differences between the dimensions of the sample and the person. The same applies to cars – each is different from its assembly line fellows, even if the difference is just a fraction of an inch. The studio’s specialists can identify and correctly mark all these differences and fit the parts so that the final quality is indistinguishable from the perfect factory assembly.
Paints for tuned parts are selected according to the same parameters as at the factory, so that even the most experienced eye doesn’t distinguish any difference in the colors. Paint matchers prepare the paint based on the car’s original color code. Unlike a human eye, existing computer systems cannot perfectly match the 5-6 shades of factory paint of the car. That’s why the thickness, brightness and intensity of the paint for tuned parts is controlled not only by machines but also by experienced paint experts.
We provide the whole cycle of tuning kit production and installation services which allows us to guarantee the high quality of our products.
