This week C3 met up with Wayne of PCNY, whom he'd met during the 2014 GoldRush Rally. Wayne brought out two of PCNY's toys: a 2015 Escalade Black Edition and their newest addition, a 2015 Maserati Ghibli. We got a chance to speak with Wayne while shooting these two beasts and learn more about what PCNY represents. PCNY is taking over the concierge industry, one service at a time. They cover everything from land, air and sea transportation to party planning. Their mission is to accommodate their clients in the best way they can. “My brother and I are partners. We have always loved helping people and felt that getting into this business was a good way to meet people personally, as well as build a bridge to other things,” explains Wayne of PCNY. “The goal is to take your talents and make money with it.” PCNY is constantly expanding and currently manages a number of artists. The company is also becoming more involved with the real estate industry. “Through meeting people, it becomes possible to build other things,” says Wayne. He recently started his own car rally and looks forward to seeing it flourish before his eyes in the coming years. Apart from being a successful company, PCNY has become a lifestyle. “The people that we brought into the circle are great, honest and young entrepreneurs,” Wayne adds. People who did not know each other now believe in PCNY’s circle and do business with one another. “We are happy to see other people networking because of us and helping each other,” he says. “The trust is there because of PCNY.” (more…)

In this week’s blog, C3 got a chance to meet with Sergio of Ai Motorsports and shoot his current fleet at Sergio's residence, which can be considered a dream collection to many. Sergio tells us what the company means to him: “AiMotorsports is a style or vision for the cars I own. It stems from AiMediaGroup. We focus on extreme performance for our clients. The idea is that we take their current program and make it the best that it could be. The same principles are applied to AiMortorsports, taking the best from a manufacturer and making it better. In time, I would consider making AiMotorsSports into a mainstream business. The company purely defines my car collection. I make each car custom with its own individuality without going too far, which is the hardest part. Having restraint, yet making it a one-off is what makes us unique.” The following Q&A explains Sergio’s passion for the auto industry and his advice for fellow enthusiasts: (more…)
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…)

A classic and spectacular car such as the Porsche cannot just be photographed anywhere, especially the 991 GT3. That is why C3 scoured the depths of New Jersey to find a dimly lit and mysterious location to photograph the beast. C3 lit up the deserted area where he worked his magic to capture these incredible images. In PTS Carmine Red, this 991 GT3 sits beautifully on gloss black HRE 21-inch P106 wheels. The P106 is a split-six spoke design with a six lug bolt pattern that is both geometrically stunning and incredibly lightweight. Paired with factory red anodized centerlocks and additional GMG performance bits, this Porsche is sure to stand out anywhere. Peep C3's photography and tease your senses with the tantalizing image that is the 991 GT3.
