2019 Maserati GranTurismo on 20" Blaque Diamond BD-F18

Image
Maserati has always been mysterious. Everyone's heard of Maserati, but do you really know what it is? When you think Italian sports cars, Lamborghini and Ferrari jump to mind right away. So where does the Maserati fit in? 
First thing is first, the Maserati GranTurismo is absolutely stunning. No matter what angle you look at the car, you can see all the beautiful Italian lines. The car is very well put together from a design stand point. Since it's release in 2008, not much has changed in terms of styling other than some basic facelifts, but that's what makes this car unique. The design is timeless. 

Apart from its styling, the GT packs a huge punch. A 4.7-liter V8 built and developed by the boys over at Maranello (Ferrari) makes about 450hp and 390 lb-ft and revs to an impressive 7,500 RPM. You can top this thing out at 190 mph while hitting 60 mph in less than 5 seconds. Not too shabby.

So what makes this GT even more special? In typical Italian fashion, no outfit is co…

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon on 22" Concave BD-15 with Beefy M/T Tires

Image
When most people think of a Jeeps; they think tough, dirty, and ready to go to work. For the most part you would be right to think that. The US Military has used Jeeps in the past and many other countries all over the world still rely on the Jeep to get them through rugged terrain on a daily basis. Although we fully respect the Jeep and its history, we thought it was about time to change things up.
Deep concave wheels have been a hit for cars and trucks alike, but it seems as though the Jeep has been left out of the equation. Why don't Jeep enthusiast run concave wheels? Well to be quite frank, there is no utility in it... or is there?

We have a fully equip Jeep Wangler Rubicon running one of Blaque Diamond's most versatile wheel, the BD-15. The BD-15 is sleek, elegant, and simple. It's everything you want and need in a 5 spoke wheel but has that touch of uniqueness that will demand attention, especially on a jeep with M/T tires. This Jeep is running 22" Black Diamon…

2018 Tesla Model 3 on 20" Gloss Black Blaque Diamond BD-1

Image
Tesla's intended goal with the Model 3 was to introduce an all-electric vehicle for the masses. Turns out the Model 3 was direct competitor with luxury compact sedans from BMW, Mercedes and Audi. When the Model 3 was originally announced, Tesla made the claim that this will be the most affordable long range full-electric car. Well about 3 years later, the promised 35k model was finally announced this February. The standard model will earn you up to 220 miles of range all the way up to the long range version which will allow for 325 miles of range. 

Model 3's have been popping up everywhere, especially if you live in heavy populated metro cities such Los Angeles. Almost everywhere you look you will see one of these things whizzing by. So how does one stand out in a world full of Model 3's? Well, our friends over at Fantazy Motorsports in Thousand Oaks, CA have the answer. 

They have transformed your average Model 3 into something truly stunning. First order of business is …

Nissan GTR R35 on 20" Super Deep Blaque Diamond BD-21

Image
Godzilla (Gojira) - "An enormous, destructive, prehistoric sea monster awakened and empowered by nuclear radiation." 
A perfect description of the monstrous Blaque Diamond R35 GTR! Only difference is we don't run on nuclear radiation, rather a beastly VR38 with two fat turbos! The GTR is one of the most iconic cars to come out of Japan. After a long wait for the USDM version of the Skylines, these things took off like a rocket, both in sales and speed!
The GTR is known for breaking every lap record in sight putting the big dogs against the wall trying to figure our how this Japanese beast is keeping up with precision German engineering. The amount of technology in the GTR is what really makes it special. The car knows exactly what to do at all times. It never breaks a sweat, even when you've been running it balls to the wall all day long. In fact, the GTR enjoys the being slapped around; it's where it feels most comfortable.

From Russia with Love - Dmitry's Stunning 4 Series Bimmer

Image
Dmitry is a simple guy. He likes nice cars and likes to go fast; I'm sure many of us can relate. Dmitry is a self-proclaimed BMW Genius but we believe him. Just check out his Instagram (@dimi4_t) page and you'll see why we agree. Dmitry hails from Mother Russia, but his car is something you'd see cruising the streets of Los Angeles; low and demands attention every time he drives by.

His F32 BMW 430i LCI is slammed on AirLift Performance's full 3H kit which gives him the ability to lower and raise his car at will, although we prefer it as low as possible at all times. To add to the low sleek profile, Dmitry opted to add full custom carbon pieces throughout. He's got a custom carbon front splitter, rear diffuser, spoiler, and side sills. Along with all the carbon goodies, he's got the M performance package aero kit to add just the perfect amount aggression around the car. Whats an aggressive diffuser without an aggressive exhaust? Nothing. Dimi's Bimmer is e…

2018 Tesla Model X P100D on 24" Blaque Diamond BD-15

Image
Close your eyes and imagine 770 horsepower and 790 lb-ft of torque. Now imagine all that power roaring down a 1/4-mile drag strip. What's the first car that comes to your mind when you hear numbers like that? Hellcat? McLaren? Lamborghini? Ferrari?! Well, if you guessed any of those, you'd be wrong. You'd be very wrong. Today, we are talking about the fully electric Tesla Model X P100D. The Tesla doesn't even roar, it's like a spaceship from a different planet. One second you see it, the next its gone like a UFO. With impressive 0-60 times in any class, the Model X can clock 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds! But it's not all about coma-inducing performance, this is a family SUV after all.


The P100D is packed with a 100kWh lithium-ion battery giving power to two different motors driven through a single-speed gear box that drives all 4 wheels. The battery on this electric sleeper can guarantee you a range of 300 miles when you're on a full charge. How long does it…
