They needed to put the S/C on there merely to compensate for the weight of those absurd wheels. It's probably no faster...

There was clearly room for more speakers on those door panels.

This is a 150k + project , the ford focus is a sub 20k sedan.

This car is a 6 speed manual SS camaro with a Kenne Bell 2.3L SuperCharger.

The wheels/tires cost the price of 2 titanium fully loaded new focuses.

The build video here shows the work and craftsmanship on this BEAST. The owner is infact in the 1% up end of the economy. He also owns a Rolls Royce Phantom coupe with a steel hood ...

Sorry , just had to get the facts out there.

AND ITS STILL STUPID!

he has killed the effective gear ratio with teh oversize wheels and lack of tires, he turned a decent handling fast car in to something that is slow, heavy, and about as stable as a bronco2 with bad shocks on a windy day. i'll toss my money on a focus any day and be safe.
there really is no craftsmanship to be proud of. fiberglassing a speaker box is easy. this is a pure case of bought not built. in fact is more a revelation that mankind is doomed

Uhm , not built ?

I am going to assume you don't have much car knowledge ... regardless of form/function -- this car had a ton (a ton) of modifications from suspension , gears , motor (Kenne belle 2.7) , brakes , paint , interior ... I'll stop there.

If someone were to ask a shop to replicate this build (or "bought" as you call it) , expect a bill of over $120k easy (not including price of the car) , and 6-12 month build (or "bought") timeframe.

This BUILD is very professional , and superb craftsmanship regardless if you like the car or not ...

"bought" cars don't get invited to SEMA .

I'm 100% sure you have no idea towards the extent of modifications made to this car.,

This isn't a camaro with big wheels and speakers , it's a full blown custom build that Tampa Customs did in an almost impossible timeframe.

Pretty sad you don't respect hard work based on your "preferred performance/style"

BTW : This car ran a 12.2 on 32" wheels ...

What are you running in the quarter ?

Look, I can go to a custom car shop and ask them to duct tape $100,000 worth of $100 bills to the outside of my car...that doesn't make it anything special.

If cars like that is your thing then by all means go for it...but don't expect everyone to like it, and don't get butt hurt when exactly that happens.

I can agree to a certain point... it takes a lot of work and craftsmanship to do a build like this.. and well there is a crowd of people that like the whole DONK scene... Now does it look good? in my eyes.. NO.. does it look good in their eyes.. yes... we each have our own opinions.. my opinion stands this car looks like shit, probably drives like shit, and while this atrocity may have taken 100k in work and products, it still a disgrace to do that to a performance inspired vehicle.. at the end of the day.. this is a POS build in my eyes..endrant/

We're not saying it didn't take craftsmanship, work, and money.

All we're saying is it's fugly.
