Well, have no fear. Ryalex Performance has the aftermarket solution:

The deer splitter looks like a good idea; to chop its feet off before smashing through the windsheild!!! Nice!
Nice job, esp the 360.
If ya think about it, the Splitter on the 360 may actually help to cut through the air, there by improving the aerodynamics, and we all know what that means. It will go faster.
I sure could have used that deer splitter a couple of years ago. Hit a deer with my '72 E-type. I was going around 45 to 50 mph when this big buck came out of nowhere. He demolished the hood and crushed the radiator underneath. Fortunately, he was running fast, so his momentum took him off to the side rather than over the hood and through the windshield.
Needless to say, I'm a big advocate of deer hunting -- but not with my car anymore.
By removing the hooves, the body of the animal will lose it's grounding, causing the airborne torso to begin to roll. As long as the driver makes a small swerve, the body should roll over the sides of the vehicle instead of a dead-on impact, thereby mitigating damage.
It also prevents a thrashing, injured deer from stabbing the occupants with its hooves, which is actually a danger.
It will not totally prevent damage to the car, but lower the odds of the driver and passenger dying. However, it should obliterate any smaller obstacles, such as raccoons, opossum or squirrels.
The polished high carbon surgical stainless steel blade is rust proof and guaranteed for one year.
Three years ago I hit a deer, with my then, everyday car.........a Camry. It caused $1900 of damage.
Last Saturday, I was driving with my Boxer, in a 45 MPH speed zone, and the guy in front of me hit a deer..........it came out of nowhere!!!!!!!!!
Where I live, while driving to work, about 30 miles each way, I usually see 2-3 road hits a week.
There are TOO many deer in Wisconsin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Front end stability would be greatly reduced, no?
Not fortunate for him
Could you put some curved venturi on the underside of the deer splitter, so that the liquified squirrels/raccoons would be harmlessly shot out the sides? Kind of like the front of a boat, only with some downforce. Plus that would clear the deer hooves out to the sides of the car as well, rather than having them clatter along the undertray and bang up the exhaust tips on the way out.
We would be happy to customize. BTW Kevin, we are also preparing a "Strakes of Death" package for the Testarossa and the 348. Details to follow.
Could you develop an auto-targeting rocket launcher to deal with those pesky road animals? If they don't exist by the time the car reaches where they were, you don't need a front guard right?
Also helps if I'm losing a street race
Oh deer ......
This reminds my of an old thread....
A possum can not out run a F40...
This might meet your needs.
Man~ you are GOOD.
Can you do a Red 360?
Would like the guns for the Euro 308. And if you could kindly add rear oil slick button and license plate rotation that would be nice

the gatling grilles are a nice touch, would need some superdooper windshield washers to wash away all the blood and body parts that get chopped up and flying back at you. Hitting a dear can be bad, hitting a moose is down right dangerous. They have longer legs and a lot bigger torso, carring a lot more mass as they come crashing down on the car.
Ouch, talk about a close encounter...
Atta boy, that's more like it!
Ok, so develop for me deflector shields that can stay raised while firing photon torpedoes or phasers during warp speed. The shields should rise automatically when sensors detect an object in front of the ship
uh, car. That should about do it.
Lambo=moose magnet/deer velcro
Uhh, that would have to go on www.StarTrekChat.com !
