The Infiniti M45 or Y34 amongst enthusiasts is the luxury model from Infiniti. The Y34 is a land yacht- the sheer size and length of this car is backed up by the 4.5L V8 to create the ultimate luxury machine. Adding flavor to the already tasteful platform was a no brainer- the end product is what you see today.
Shaun from PURE VIP took his build in a direction that no one else would dare. Being a non traditional platform to modify, this Hyundai built the way it is, is a real neck breaker. Equipped with an eye catching paint job, insanely wide fenders, and negative double digit wheel offsets, Shaun sought to build the best VIP style car with the most non traditional platform.
Every new platform that gets introduced to the market all have one thing in common- scarce to none aftermarket support. Although one could simply wait for the industry to catch up, others turn to custom fabrication. Chris Cu is the latter. Coming from a Nissan 370Z, Chris knew exactly what he wanted to achieve with his Q50- and exactly how to do it.
There are only 3 Japantowns remaining in the United States. Luckily for us, we have one right in our backyard in San Jose. Although rather seen as huge car show, Shukai has deeper roots. The idea of Shukai is to provide awareness to Japantown and give the community a way to appreciate the historic site. What's even more special is that the City of San Jose and San Jose Japantown Business Association are in full support of the event. Huge shoutout for Cary, the Wheels N' Meals team, and Headliners for coordinating an awesome event!
Luxury cars, rare body kits, and aggressive wheels are all signs of one thing- VIP Style Cars. This form of styling originated in Japan and as you can probably guess, also where the demon camber trend has its roots. The Black VIP recently just hosted an all VIP car show, and we were lucky enough to be in the area to capture what went down.
Stancenation finally landed in Southern California. Now that Japan, Florida, and Texas each have shows, California was long due for one. With quality builds all over the golden state, this was a chance to compete with the best of the best to see who was the King of California builds. Huge shoutout to Elvis and the Stancenation Team for putting on a successful show! Maybe next year there will be one in Northern California!
