Subaru’s have always been a popular car in New Zealand, and there has been more and more people modifying them nowadays. There also more and more tastefully modified examples popping up. One of those car’s last year was Nimesh’s Version 8 WRX STi.
It’s a true example of the sometimes less is more approach, where the right set of wheel’s, matched with some decent suspension can set the car off and get the right look.
The hellaflush/ stance movement is going off at the moment in New Zealand, which I think is awesome! Call it a fad or a trend that will probably die, but until it does, we’ll still get to see great cars like this and others that represent the local car scene.
The car has now been sold, in saying that, I’m sure we’l be posting his next project soon enough.
I’ll leave you with this sweet video, made by Spyro Serepisos.
You may have also spotted another one of Nimesh’s old rides around, if you lived around the Wellington area.
