2015 Lincoln Navigator fitted with 24" Blaque Diamond BD-15s in Silver with Machined Face

2018 is a year of new. New goals, new accomplishments...a new grind. As the summer is heating up, so is the competition in the large luxury SUV segment. Blessing the automotive world with THE FIRST luxury sports utility vehicle ever created, Lincoln has flipped the script with the all new redesigned 2018 Navigator. From music videos to ski trips to chauffeuring the family to dance recitals, the stock SUV would stand out just about anywhere. But we couldn’t stop there. In the words of Queen Beyonce, we liked it, so we put some “bling” on it!

Also new for 2018 is Blaque Diamond’s BD-15 wheel. At the Galpin Lincoln Dealership in Van Nuys, CA; Galpin Auto Sports’ (GAS) teamed up with the innovative and avant guard wheel house which resulted in the Gator being fitted with 24”x10” rims. To complete the rim-tire combination, Toyo Proxes 305/35/24 tires have been wrapped on to fill most of the wheel well. The machined finish of the BD-15s perfectly accentuates the new Navigator’s giant chrome…

2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost fitted with 24" Blaque Diamond BD-77s in 2-Tone Black

Icon. Only a few things come to mind when attempting to describe something by that word. That word represents an idea most can only dream of apprehending. It’s not just about being the best, it’s about being the best consistently. Polo by Ralph Lauren, the crown of Rolex, or the lion of the Ritz-Carlton are a few examples of what it means to be and remain iconic. These are symbols of prestige, of quality, and high value. They cannot be mistaken for anything other than what they are. Another name comes to mind of similar file and rank as the aforementioned…two names in fact: Rolls-Royce.

In a league of its own, the 2015 Rolls Royce Ghost can only be compared to other Double-Rs. This Panda Ghost was imagined up by Unique Wheels & Tires, a full service custom tire shop out of Santa Clarita, CA. A satin black wrap over the bonnet, boot, and roof of the car gives it the semblance of quintessential two-tone Rolls Royce. Other modifications by Unique include a gloss black grill, gloss bl…

2018 Range Rover HSE fitted with 24" Blaque Diamond BD-77s in Silver with Brushed Face

What is refinement? There’s a certain enigma that comes along with the concept. A certain mystique, as well. You think of someone or something that’s “put together”…someone or something that is well sorted. There may not be a definitive answer to the question, but you know what it is when you see it. That refined nature translates into the automotive world, as well. There are only a few automobile marques that are elegant and distinguishable enough to fit this aloof classification; and fewer still to be the select vehicles for  the Pope and the Queen of England. This sophistication inspires a certain “call-to-action” that is embodied in the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover HSE.

Designed not only to be the asphalt warrior that it is, the 2018 Range Rover HSE has a powerful supercharged power plant and is a very capable off-roader. Beautiful and purposeful. This eye catching example was customized by Gintani Motorworks. Based in Van Nuys, California, the performance focused production house …

BLAQUE DIAMOND | CARPRO CQuartz Classic Ceramic Coating
Based on the original CQuartz technology. CQuartz UK was developed in the United Kingdom for use in cold, damp climates where most nanotechnology coatings typically struggle. A new fast flashing carrier was used to enhance curing in difficult conditions, and the silica-quartz content was increased to a scarcely believable 70% creating an even harder and purer glass layer. These enhancements allowed CQ UK to be easily applied in temperatures as low as 41-degrees Fahrenheit (5-Degrees Celsius), with even higher levels of beauty and protection, making it the unofficial pinnacle of our consumer CQuartz line. Features:
CQuartz UK is the easiest to apply coating on the market. No matter how cold, hot, or humid the application is simple.70% Quartz with 99.9% purity SiO2 (Quartz) & Tio2 (Titanium) Hybrid coating for extreme reflections, gloss, "self-cleaning", and resistance to oxidation)Extremely durable hard glass-like coat…

2018 Mercedes Benz C300 fitted with 20" Blaque Diamond BD-15s in Silver with Machined Face

Some say it’s the little things in life that make it worth living. The details, that is what defines something - the collective “micro” that makes up the “macro”. Since the day of its inception, one car model has proven this axiom to be true. The Mercedes-Benz C class, a once entry level model to the prestigious German marque, has never lacked in its ability to display how much it truly is worthy of being called a Benz. Historically the smallest car in Mercedes’ lineup, this car has never been short on charisma and driver enthusiasm, not to mention premium build quality. This isn’t just a vehicle you buy if you can’t afford its staple mates; quite the contrary. This automobile shows us another facet of what makes a Mercedes a Mercedes.

This black example is no exception. Vibe Motorsports, an aftermarket car shop located in Burbank, CA, has taken this 2018 Mercedes-Benz C300 and dialed it up a couple of notches. Known for their creative workmanship, Vibe is no stranger to giving vehicl…

2013 Ford Fusion fitted with 20" Blaque Diamond BD-11s in Antique Bronze

Image
Our idols today are trendsetters; they don’t fit in. They innovate; looking at things differently they take normal, everyday monotony and create something new. They make “IT” their own. To sum it up, they have vision. For example, 5 years ago, this economical passenger car was just another 2013 Ford Fusion. Today, it’s a heavily modified low rider that looks like its aggressive facade is meant to buck against the status quo.

This apostate 4-door sedan features a litany of modifications, some of which will be excluded for the sake of brevity. Starting with the exterior, Frenchys Customs’ retrofitted headlights and LED fog lights give this vehicle its menacing gaze. On the lower front left and right vents, LED strips are added for running lights while Titanium LED taillights cover the rear. 5Hundred Designs has contributed to this project by adding the slatted upper and lower grills, the shark fin antenna, and the paint matching emblems. A Stillen front lip adds to this assertive look w…
