What was the inspiration?
Amanda has always been into the tuner car culture. She's owned many many tuner cars from Honda's, Acuras, Mazdas, Subarus and more but this is really the epitome of high end tuner cars in our opinion. There's plenty of build, bagged, and otherwise custom cars but nothing quit like a widebody GTR as far as a show stopper with the performance to back it up.
How long did it take you to build?
We redid a previous build by the previous owner. We turned the car into what you see it as now in about a month at our shop.
How long have you been building?
Ive been tinkering with cars since i can remember. from RC cars, to tuner cars, offroad cars/trucks, PLENTY of trucks but this is the first high end car we have really made into our own.
Your future plans?
For this car this is about it. We need to complete the trunk section before Slam 2021 and retune the car for more boost.
We bought the car when we were at Sema 2019 and drop it home. Jon saw this car for sale about 6 months before Sema and while we were in Vegas we saw it was for sale still. We met up with the previous owner and Amanda fell in love. The rest is history. We finally made it our own, complete color change, full stereo, modifications to air suspension system and a lot of small tweaks to make it outs.
