and off-road shocks, along with skid plates and dif­fer­en­tial cover from Ford Per­for­mance.

There’s a winch in the front bumper from Warn As­cent plus a snorkel to help with river runs. The tub ac­com­mo­dates a Slim Shady awning and the Base Camp sits on 18-inch black wheels with sil­ver and or­ange high­lights.

NIS­SAN

The Project Club­sport 23 shows how own­ers of older 370Z cars can trans­form them into cus­tom ma­chines us­ing parts from the Nis­san Mo­tor­sports and af­ter­mar­ket cat­a­logues. The orig­i­nal 3.7-litre V6 is swapped out for a new 3.0-litre twin-turbo, with be­spoke steer­ing, sus­pen­sion and brakes. A cus­tomised body cov­ers the up­grades, along with a roll cage and “gloss burnt or­ange” wrap.

The car sit­ting along­side the 370Z was a Nis­san Kicks that goes a long way to break­ing the sound bar­rier.

The car uses Bose speak­ers mounted in and un­der the ve­hi­cle, in­clud­ing a pair in­side the driver’s head rest, three 1100W sub­woofers and a con­fig­urable amp. The cus­tom-built rear drawer opens to re­veal a pro­fes­sional DJ deck, with a Pi­o­neer mixer.

VOLK­SWA­GEN

VW rolled out three ver­sions of its fea­tured Jetta. The Air De­sign USA Jetta SEL was in­spired by Jetta and Golf ac­ces­sories from the 1980s and ’90s and rides on 19-inch Hock­en­heim wheels sup­ported by Eibach pro­gres­sive rate low­er­ing springs.

The body kit with rear lip spoiler is high­lighted by tri­colour graph­ics and a cus­tom cognac and black in­te­rior. A VW Ac­ces­sories bike rack is mounted on the roof.

“Air De­sign’s first styling kits were de­vel­oped for the Jetta Mark 2 and Jetta Mark 3 and have been part of the Volk­swa­gen Euro-tun­ing cult, with a le­gion of ded­i­cated fans through­out the world,” says spokes­woman Mar­i­ana Lopez.
