What drives people to spending thousands of dollars and many hours of their free time to make a good car great.
However, the truth is that most people who end up with a car as beautiful as this never start off thinking that they are going to build the best car in the country; it normally starts off with something small and in many cases trivial.
Or alternatively, it could be that the car, in this case the Subaru WRX STi was not to David’s liking so therefore from the minute that the car entered the garage the work began on transforming it into something completely different and you have to say that the job has been done.
Under the hood the main visible change has to be the Zero Sports A/R20 high performance turbo, this is vast improvement on the factory version as it delivers four hundred HP at twenty five pounds of boost.
It has to be said that there is little of the original car left, especially as he decided on the Voltex body kit, these don’t look too great but when it comes to aerodynamics it is the business.
The question that hits all tuners and builders is when do you draw the line in the sand, when is it all over? For some builders it is never over while for others they create their masterpiece and leave it at that, which is exactly what David has said.
