    Team Hybrid - - 2009 Nissan GT-R (R35)


    Congratulations to Darin ‘Kunani’ Ferraro's 2009 Nissan GT-R (R35) for being featured in a story about SEMA 2008 on Yesterday, on the thread I made about Paul's EVO IX being in Super Street Magazine, I said, "...wait till you see the re-done and new project cars we are building that will be coming out soon esp. for the 2009 show/race schedule w/ our title sponsor BFG/Michelin." Today is the first day of SEMA and already, one of our new projects for 2009 is making news. The new cars you will be seeing towards the end of this year are going to be some of our top future superstars. It is the next generation of Hybridz that will be taking us to the 15 year goal.

    Credit goes out to Darin Ferraro, LV Probie, for buying and building the car in such a short amount of time. Chris "Chef" Haydostian, LV Director in Training, for all the behind the scenes work. Robert Chew, Events Director, for approving the car for the Falken Booth @ SEMA. Lastly, I will do what I can to help Darin with some of the 2009 plan(s) I have for the car as well as getting it in major publications. All levels working together for the greater good of our team. No selfishness and no one acting/being a pre-madonna. This is team work at its best, baby.

    SEMA 2008: Kunani's / Budez GT-R / Hybrid @ Falken Tires Booth

    Going from a standard car to a highly modified SEMA showpiece is not an easy task at all but when you personally do it in just thirty days, manage to find time to squeeze in a photo shoot and it ends up looking this good you’re doing-it-right™ in my book.

    Darin ‘Kunani’ Ferraro did just that when he took his white 2009 Nissan GT-R and built this beast. With an impressive modifications list he’s managed to make something that stands out from the crowd. You can check it out at the Falken Tire booth (#43027) So what’s it got?
