2016 Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 BD-F18 on 20" Blaque Diamond BD-F18

Image
The Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 has a long name with a long supercar heritage to uphold. The wedge-like design ensures that the air thoroughly slips around the baby lambo’s curves. Intakes on the front and sides make sure the radiators are cool and the engine can breathe properly. Designed by Italian’s finest both artistically and mechanically, you would think aftermarket add-ons and deletions would take away from the aesthetic and balanced beauty that this supercar possesses. But then you’d be wrong.
Gintani Motorworks has put this amazing piece of kit together. Personally, Gintani added a Stage 2 twin turbos and tuned the engine for the modifications. The twin turbo kit is a G1000. Clearly the 1,000 bit translates to 1,000 horsepower, which should put a smug grin on any car enthusiasts’ face. Other alterations include a wide and sleek rear wing provided by RSC Tuning. Novitec has supplied their custom suspension and lowered the car for a more aggressive and race inspired stance. For…

2019 BMW M850i on 20" Blaque Diamond BD-F18 in Gloss Black

Image
After a long awaited 20 years, BMW finally rolls out the second generation 8 series dubbed the BMW M850i. This all new BMW, just like his older brother, is the top of the line offering from BMW. The 8 indicates the models status at the top of the food chain among the BMW M6, i8, and Alpina series models. Initially offered as the M850i, you can expect to see more models coming in the future including a convertible model and the highly anticipated M8.

The M850i is a big boy weighing in at approximately 5,280 lbs, but don't fooled by the massive size of this beast. Equip with a 4.4-liter 523-hp twin turbo V8, you can expect to hit 60 mph in only 3.4 seconds. That's on par with the likes of the Lamborghini LP-580 which performs the 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and only two hundredths of a second slower than a Porsche GT3. Those are some pretty impressive numbers considering both the other cars were made to be track monsters. BMW's Head of Suspension, Jon Van As, was quoted saying the …

2018 Cadillac Escalade on 24" Blaque Diamond BD-15 in Gloss Black

Image
Sometimes, to change the game you don’t need much; especially when you’re already sitting at the top of the food chain. Take the Big Mac for instance, it’s that special sauce that makes all the difference. For now, the Cadillac Escalade is still the king of SUVs, instantly adding mounds of sauce to the person seen piloting the mammoth body-on-frame iron chariot. But, if all things are equal, how does an Escalade separate itself from the neighbors playing “keeping up with the Joneses”.

Galpin Auto Sports found the secret sauce to giving the 2018 Cadillac Escalade even more personality. Its success lies in the four corners of the vehicles’ foundation: the wheels. Customized with Blaque Diamond 24” BD-15 wheels finished in gloss black, the subtle hint of swag creates a chasm between it and factory vehicles. To customize means you possess a sense of vision others don’t, and to do it tastefully can put you in a class of one.


Being classy is a lifestyle, and that’s what his BD-15 wheel embo…

2018 Mercedes-Benz E300 Sport on 20" Blaque Diamond BD-77s in Rose Gold

Image
An all black Mercedes is like an all black suit…good for any occasion. But down in Miami, they make them a little different. Known for its Caribbean culture, its illegal capitalist cowboy roots, and its world renown party scene; South Florida is a brewing grounds for artistic creativity and self expression. Down here, a black Benz can be more than a suit, it can be a Thom Browne short suit and leather brogue boots worn by LeBron James in game 1 of the Finals. So what if others don’t like it, creativity doesn’t consult their opinion. The owner of this 2018 Mercedes E300 Sport definitely didn’t ask permission.

Speaking of self expression, Kisley Carvajal has commissioned Tread Marks Miami to modify his Mercedes E-class to fit his personality and taste. Besides the roof mounted cargo carrier, modifications include an Airforce Suspension 1/1 and air lift management kit so the Mercedes can squat like a cross-fitter. One look at this ride makes one think this totter ferrying owner is one p…

2018 Dodge Charger Scatpack on 20" Blaque Diamond BD-11s in Gloss Silver

Image
American muscle comes in a lot of forms these days. If the goal is to set a new lap record, get a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. Want a Cobra fighter from General Motors, get the Camaro. You want the fastest gasoline powered automobile to do 0-60, Dodge offers the Demon and Hellcat twins to dominate the drag strip. Sharing the same blood line as the record setting Dodges, the 2018 Charger R/T ScatPack is the preferred super sedan for dads making runs to the grocery store and soccer practice. Endowed with a 6.4 liter semi V8, 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque motivates this monster down the strip and the carpool lane. As incredible of a machine this thing is from the factory, a real car enthusiast has to make a few modifications. 

The owner of this beautiful example, Johnny Rubio has made some tasteful changes to distinguish his R/T ScatPack Charger from the rest of the herd. To provide some wind protection and several levels of swag, dark window visors and a rear window spoiler have…

Range Rover HSE fitted with 24" Blaque Diamond BD-11s in Gloss Black

Image
Land Rover, a British marque with a military and off-road pedigree. These vehicles have a credible history as being used to traverse the roughest terrain during the most trying times. Now, it’s a new day. Wars are no longer being fought in the marshes of an asian jungle, or the sands of a Middle Eastern oil producing state. Today’s war is an onslaught on those that dare to rise to challenge the prowess and reputation of the highly esteemed automaker. Today’s war is being waged on the urban asphalt of Townsville and on the suburban pavement of Main St. For this war, a new mode of transport is needed. Something still capable enough to get the job done, but able to do it while the passengers rest in absolute luxury.

That new form of transportation comes wrapped in black, grey, and white camouflage as a Range Rover HSE. Dirty Devil Customs, based in the City of Angels, made sure this Range wouldn’t blend in as it does its battle on the streets of LA. They also took measures to keep operat…
