Restyle

Written by : Posted on January 12, 2012 : 1 Comment

Love this car! It is fresh, clean, and unique. Demetrius has taken a platform that isn’t quite as popular and has built something special. At first, it gives the impression of only cosmetic mods. However, this isn’t the case here, this CL has a few goodies up its sleeve. Inside the engine bay there’s a Comptech Supercharger, some cooling mods, and even a tranny swap.

Demetrius went with a beautiful set of gold Work VS-XX wheels that compliment the red exterior. Another nice touch were the upgraded brake parts. The 4 piston calipers came from an Acura RL, and to our surprise, the 12.8″ slotted rotors are actually for a 350z.

As you may know we are big fans of originality, so we truly acknowledge the effort in putting together this car. Without a doubt, here’s a success story of being different and effective while bringing your own style to the scene. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone, engage yourself in platforms that are challenging. Go out there and make a name for yourself, be bold, do whatever it takes to keep it fresh. These are the cars people recognize and appreciate the most.

Special thanks to Derek Wheeler for the exclusive photography and cooperation.

    Nice looking ride. A couple of questions though, why 07 tl tranny? And where/how did you get those fog light inserts?
