The Battle of the Ferrari 458s: Lexani vs The Auto Firm

Feb 12, 2014

Just a regular stock photo...
Two videos were released of Ferrari 458s. The first video is a 458 Spider by Lexani Wheels. It has an all black finish with Lexani's LZ-101 Wheels.

Now the second video is from The Auto Firm. One of Miami's biggest customization shops customized an Avorza edition 458 Italia, and it was designed by Alex Vega.  

So... both of these black 458s look great, but which one do you like the most- Lexani's 458 Spider or the Auto Firm's 458 Italia?

Bernie's Cargram Feed: February 8-9th

Feb 10, 2014

I decided to do another Instagram Feed, where I share my favorite photos (well, the automotive related ones) of the ones that I follow from a particular day. Well, this time I decided to compile the best photos from this weekend that just ended.

To kick things off, I decided to include a photo that was taken the previous weekend at Atlanta's Caffeine and Octane. Now, I'm not a person who poses in photos, and you can see that with my Instagram page (@CarShowBernie).

And I decided to pose, thanks to @teamlmp.

Adventus Forged Wheels (@adventusforged) posted a photo of a Lexus IS wearing their AVS-2 Wheels. The bottom of the pic has their AVS line.

One of my favorite customized cars, this matte blue Mercedes Benz CLS that belongs to one of the Swift Car Club members (@swiftrazo). This photo was done at a photo shoot in downtown Los Angeles, and have I mentioned that I want this car. Like I really want it.

Everyone's favorite divorce lawyer from Long Island, NY and his very interesting girlfriend (@teamsalamone) are celebrating their 6th anniversary and posted this flipogram highlight their love for each other... and also Lamborghinis.

Oh and yes, there is an uncensored version.

Vossen Wheels (@vossen) had a presense at the Tag Motorsports event. One of the cars out there was an Audi A5 wearing Vossen's CV7 wheels. 

Savini Forged Wheels (@SaviniWheels) also was at the Tag Motorsports event, and they brought this Rolls Royce Ghost.

Branded Customs (@BrandedCustoms) from Dallas, TX released a photo of a blacked out Chevy Camaro that they've done. Looking good...

Topo of TS Designs (@wide_body_king) released another picture of one of his most successful projects. Remember how TS Designs, JC Kustomz, and Forgiato created the widebodied Corvette Stingray??? Well, now aside from the hardtop, you can get the same widebodied goodness in a convertible. If it ain't broke, don't fix it...

MC Customs (@MCCustomsMiami) posted this behind the scenes shot of two cars- one's wearing Savini Wheels, the other is wearing Vossen Wheels. Side note: I'm extremely happy that the photographer is shooting with a Canon.

Forgiato Wheels (@forgiato) reposted this photo from MC Customs of this Mercedes Benz S550 wearing their wheels.

Exclusive Motoring (@exclusivemotoring) posted this shot of a Mercedes Benz G550 customized with painted black exterior trim grilles and badges smoked lights and color matched Forgiato wheels.

Butler Tire (@ButlerTire) released this photo of a Porsche Panamera S wearing Forgiato Wheels.

Onyx Concept Vehicles (@onyxconcept) asked their followers if matte black is timeless or if it's a fad. I think it looks great... when done correctly. I've seen some horrid matte paint jobs.

To round out the weekend recap, The Auto Firm (@theautofirm) released a photo of a complete brush titanium wrapped Maybach with all gloss black trimmings sitting on the first set of 24 inch new Avorza AV10 Wheels.

Revisiting the Famous Widebody Corvette C7 Stingray... plus the replicas.

Feb 3, 2014


Whether you like it or not, this is the most famous 2014 Chevy Corvette around. But let's backtrack to get the entire story, shall we?

At the 2013 New York International Auto Show, Chevrolet had the brillant idea to unveil the new Chevy Corvette and it instantly became popular. Five months later, Forgiato wheel company was plotting a way to take over SEMA. Combining forces with both TS Designs and JC Kustomz, they came up with a widebodied Corvette that almost had the power to make you forget what the factory Corvette looked like.

Customizations include custom Forgiato grille, Forgiato Maglia-ECL Wheels (21" in the front, 22's in the back), wide body modification (2" in the front, 3" in the rear), custom chin spoiler, custom rear diffuser with a bunch of carbon fiber accents, and of course, the Aston Martin Blue paint.

It's no surprise, but this widebodied Corvette won three awards at SEMA- the Dub Magazine Builder of the Year Award, the Gran Turismo Peoples Choice Award, and most importantly the GM Design Award. Plus, the original widebodied Corvette was sold at SEMA for a mere $150,000. So what do you do when the car you made was soooo popular? You'se make more. And so they did.

Like the saying goes "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". But I'm anxious to see how Topo is going to top this this one.
