These days, it’s no longer all that often that you come across a tuner car with a real sense of a cohesive theme, an ethos as to how its owner decided to go about modifying the vehicle. Most of the time, people look to improve one or two specific areas of the car, not wholly transform it, enhance it into something approaching the pinnacle of what that car was meant to be.
