We always want to show our appreciation for our customers and their passion for modified / performance cars. That’s why, for the second year running, we’ve run our ‘Customer Car of the Year’ competition.

With even more popularity than last year, 2017’s competition displayed an impeccable array of cars. Not only did the competition get over 50 entries, 20 of them made it to the final! We simply couldn’t pick just a ‘top 3’ or the ‘top 5’, so we decided to put 20 cars through to the final.

Shall we find out about the winner?

The Winner…

Competition - Toyota Supra

With a staggering 876 votes, 27.32% of the final vote, Karl’s incredible 700BHP Toyota Supra Aerotop took first place. A well-deserved winner indeed – congratulations!

The car has a staggering list of modifications attached to it. Just some of them include: a re-paint in Nissan Bayside Blue, 2JZ-GTE Engine swap, 6 speed V161 manual gearbox conversion, Single turbo conversion, Borg Warner SXE 66mm turbo, Garage Whifbitz twin scroll manifold, ASNU 850cc injectors, Walbro 450lph fuel pump, Twin Turbosmart wastegates with twin screamer pipes, Turbosmart Raceport BOV, Syvecs S6 ecu, Garage Whifbitz 4” front mount intercooler, Garage Whifbitz 264 cams, Garage Whifbitz ally radiator, Line lock kit, Tein Coilovers, and full interior retrim with Recaro SR seats. Of course, the list goes on, but we’ll stop it there for now…

We’ll be publishing an article on Karl’s car soon, where you can read all about the car.
