“VIP” has grown as a style from the days of big black, mostly stock-bodied Japanese sedans slammed on static suspension and big expensive wheels. Nowadays, pretty much any color and any make is fair game, as well as crazy body kits and loud details.
The new, “Imported from Detroit” Chrysler 300C looks natural dropped on flashy wheels.
The new Hyundai Genesis sedan sitting mean in a dark grey is another example of the new VIP.
Another Genesis sedan.
Fitment being on point is still a big part of the VIP trend as demonstrated on this VIP Y50, or Infiniti M45 as it is more commonly known.
Another Infiniti M45. What are your thoughts on these wheels?
The Lexus LS is a staple of the VIP trend.
A little more traditional style here!
Elvis Skender, founder of Stancenation had his brilliant Lexus LS400 on display in the excellent Toyo Tires Treadpass.
The new Lexus LS.
Not a vehicle you see modified very often!
Petty colors look good on this Dodge Charger Daytona:
This thing is so crazy! I’m pretty sure it is a tube frame type vehicle with fiberglass body panels.

The bread and butter of any good Import Alliance meet: the Honda Civics!
Clean and simple, a good example of the popular style right now.
Some nice details on the EK Coupe: 5 lug swap, Prelude wheels (with the rears going the wrong way) Projectors, etc.
I know there’s not much done, but I like how aggressive this one looks, I like the color and it was so clean!
It’s amazing what a drop and a good set of wheels will do! Why don’t more people mod beige cars?
J lines again!
Like K swaps?
Much more to come!

Not sure what wheels these are, maybe BBS RF?
How awesome is this Chevy Luv Mud truck?
Not really a 4×4 any longer: Pro Street Chevy Luv roasting the tires!
I love how rough and gnarly this thing looks.
From lowered to lifted, the Luv does it all!
Baja style Chevy Luv
Slammed Chevy Luv on Torq Thrusts!
This one has so many cool details. My favorite is the exhaust stacks.
Next up, a “dub style” variant:
Sometimes VIP can take on a different look:
Believe it or not, but this picture is several years old, before many people were really doing anything with this platform.
Two tone working well on this one:
This is proof-positive that ANYTHING can be fast, even a gigantic luxo-barge can pull tires with enough power and grip!
