Today I bring you what could potentially be my favorite shoot to date. It's of a 2008 Balloon White Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster LP640. Rick, a good friend of mine who I met two years back during a cross state adventure hosted by Exotics Rally, brought out his Murcielago to the event and I fell in love with the car. It was then that we decided that we would shoot his car. The day finally came this past weekend, although weather conditions could have been better, the fog definitely added drama to the shoot.

It is not often that you get the opportunity to shoot an R34. Well, C3 got the chance to do just that. Shot in the outskirts of New York City, this 1999 Bayside Blue R34 gave the moonlight some competition. With Nismo suspension, the car sits mean on Toyo R888 Racing Tires with 18”x10.5” Volk TE37 wheels. Place your hand on its Nismo titanium shift knob and press your foot on gas, because this R34 can reach speeds of up to 300mph. The car also has a Nismo short shifter for noticeably better shifting. In addition, Nismo 1.5-way limited slip differential have been installed in the front and rear. (more…)

With the holiday season right around the corner, C3 decided to meet up with John, owner of Xtreme Hobbies on Long Island, to shoot his beautiful 2011 Brilliant Red Audi R8. The photoshoot was held on a cool and foggy autumn evening with the unmistakable NYC skyline in the background. John disclosed that his v10 beast is stock for now, but he is looking to mod it over the winter. Future modifications may include coilovers, new wheels and a custom exhaust, among other things.

C3 had the opportunity to meet with Joe, the owner of Xtreme Vehicle Coatings in New York, and shoot his 1995 Super Clear Red II R33 GT-R. The car shone in the moonlight in Astoria, Queens as each take of the camera aimed to capture its true beauty. With Öhlins coilver suspension and upgraded sway bars, this R33 sits perfectly on Advan gold wheels. This GT-R has a titanium exhaust, aftermarket turbos and custom downpipes. The car also features a front spoiler and rear diffuser by Top Secret. A beast with such power needs even greater stopping ability, so Joe installed StepTech 6-piston front brakes and Brembo 4-piston rear brakes. There is no denying that Joe’s R33 is eye candy, but it’s also music to your ears. Just start its engine and hear it rumble! While shooting the GT-R, Joe also spoke to us about his company Xtreme Vehicle coatings. (more…)
