While I was shooting the cars at the Techno
Classica Show in Essen one of my good friends Ronald Veth travelled to Belgium to attend the Heaven On
Wheels event. The stance scene has
been growing exponentially in Europe and I really think that the Belgians are ahead
of the game.
This Mercedes on bags rolled on a set of
MRR wheels. The type you see here are HR3 wheels and come in 20″.
Something I have never seen on European
shores was this Lexus GS on bags. Does this mean that the VIP scene has finally come to these shores?
This old school Opel Commodore A had a set
of matching blue shoes.
An Audi doesn’t need much to really stand
out. It all begins with the massive drop – pair that with a set of concave
wheels and you’ve got yourself a winner.
This Skoda proves that family saloons can
look good with a healthy drop and Fifteen52 wheels.
This Supercharged Golf R32 came all the way
from the UK to prove to the Belgians that they still rule the Dubscene.
The fitment on this car was perfect.
Minimalism is the key when building clean cars.
The owner of this Mini shows how it is done. The teal wheels look like the WedsSport
You can never go wrong with a Golf MkI.
Especially when it’s this clean.
I’ll end the coverage with this yellow Beetle
with a rebuild engine and some splines missing.
Next year I will definitively visit the
show to see what it’s all about .
I wonder how these cars are passing the 'MOT' since it's very strickt in Belgium, for example the roadclearance needs to be above 9cm...?
All look great, and I wish I could keep my car that low and fitment to the arch so close, but for the life of me the car might as well not run. Might as well not have an engine, as you can't use these cars for anything but for looking at. I think they should just save a lot of money by just having shells on wheels on display. I care about my car and having it so low is the worst possible thing you can do to them, not to mention the constant arch repare and rim and tyre replacement. Also driving these cars would have to be the most stressful and unenjoyable experience as you destroying the car and the rest while in absolute discomfort. Can anyone honestly say that 1. It's comfy or 2. Damge to The rims/ arches/ paint/ tyres or general wear on other parts of the car doesn't occur??
I'm the owner of the MINI. They're Candy Teal powder coated XXR527s. 8.25x17 on the front, but 9.75x17 on the back. Runs static... and isn't just for show ;) This was taken the day after HoW - http://tinyurl.com/cldft6a
Belgium has some awesome (and some strange) exterior designs because roadtheir taxes go up with hp..
Wow that Golf Mk1 is like staring into the clouds while riding on the wings of a Bald Eagle soaring through Mt.Helena!
Some one will have to fill me in on what good fitment is I thought I had a good idea but I'm just looking at that golf that apparently is a good example and I cant help but think its a bit odd. As for the ViP scene hitting Europe cars like that are quite common maybe not bagged maybe not always Japanese but then aim in the same low and luxury focused.
haha MINImalism, I think vip has always been in europe but only in domestic form good to see a luxury jap car though.
