Sema: Suit and Tie edition

“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.

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.

3 wheeling Fiat Abarth!Image

Modified Hyundai Veloster?Image

Was just talking to a friend the other day about how you almost never see the Kia Soul modded…

Image

Maybe a big Japanese GT-VIP style Lexus GS430 is more your style?Image

For more speed, add lightness: Lotus Cortina carrying the inner wheel through a banked turn.Image

Big Mercedes W126 laid out, likely on air: straight up gangster.Image

Another german on air ride: Mini Cooper on BBS wheels.Image

Sorry for the low res, but how awesome is this arctic prepped Nissan Frontier?Image

And some Japanese drifter conversion weirdness: Nissan S13 with Mercedes headlight conversion.

I’m a sucker for air ride and roof boxes. Any car is better to me with those two things. Like this Scion XB 2nd gen.Image

Cool wheels that work on everything, v.1: BBS RS

I know there are many kinds of the BBS wheels in this style, and many things that can be done i.e. different types of lips, faces, caps, bolts, etc.

 

Somehow, they look good on anything.
