Tokyo Auto Salon 2017: Too Kuhl for school

It’s been a busy day of work so today’s update will be short but i hope you guys will like it nonetheless. This time, we take a look at the cars from the insanely talented crew of painters from Kuhl Racing. On previous years, we’ve seen them bring along their mad GT-R, first in silver, than in gold, both times in their crazy signature engraved metal effect paint jobs. Clearly not content with applying their skills on just 1 car, they’ve brought along 2 cars this year to showcase their mad skills.

First and foremost we have a Subaru WRX STi that’s been given the widebody treatment prior to getting the full on custom paintwork.

The level of detail going into each and every panel is quite simply mind boggling.

We can’t imagine this WRX will be tackling any off road courses anytime soon.

While the custom paint jobs on cars are mightily impressive already, things take on a whole different level when you see if on a full-sized Veilfire.

I wonder how many man hours went into this.

In addition to the cars showcasing their insane metal engraving paint work, Kuhl have also come up with a 3D effect paint. It’s pretty much impossible to see in still images but try to image those 3d holographic stickers you used to play with as a kid. It’s something like that, except in color and with this wavy pattern instead. It’s quite crazy too.

Here’s the paint applied to this 86.

And on this GTR as well!

If you looked closely, you can see that the cost to stand out doesn’t exactly come cheap! But hey, when standard wraps just don’t cut it, you know who to look for.
