FROM TOY CARS TO THE REAL DEAL….
Today we have a fun little blog post for you all. The EZ Lip team has gathered together to pick some of their favorite cars and we have put together a list for you. Hopefully some of our dream cars match up with one of yours!
We have probably been asked a handful of times “If you could have any car in the world what would it be and why?” well we want you to take a minute or two and think about it. Pick the car of your dreams and picture it, why would you choose that car? Below you will see EZ Lip’s top car choice awards and a quick little reason as to why we chose it!
Let’s get this started shall we?
Aston Martin One-77
Up for Car number one we have the Aston Martin One-77. This high end luxurious sports car was produced from the British manufacture ‘”Aston Martin” from 2009 to 2012.The car was unveiled at the Paris auto show in 2008 but specifications were not released until 2009 at the Geneva auto show. This slick looking car is a rare species with only 77 worldwide. At the time, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car available on the market with 750hp being pushed out of a 7.3 Liter V12 engine. With all that being said you can see why it is such a desirable car and why it fell on the EZ Lip dream car list.

Saleen S7 Turbo
Next on the list we switch over to the one and only Saleen S7 Twin Turbo! We all remember these cars and seeing them at one point or another on posters, in a movie, on a show or if we were lucky cruising past us on the freeway. The shells of these cars were made entirely out of carbon fiber and have various scoops, vents and other aero dynamic features that help move this car quickly. All about the weight reduction right? Well, the Saleen S7’s got it all. Now when we hear the word turbo we get excited, but when we hear twin turbo our jaws begin to drop. This machine’s 750 hp engine can rip down the quarter mile in just under 10.5 seconds! EZ Lip chose this car for the simple reason of how great it looks along with the two snail shells it packs underneath all that carbon fiber body work.

Volkswagon Golf W12 650 Concept
Our third car of choice has to be the Volkswagon Golf W12 650 Concept. Have you seen one of these before? It’s a Golf on steroids! Any Vdub lover’s dream car! This beast pushes out a near 650hp with 530 ft lbs of torque. Visually looking at the car you can see many similarities to the traditional Golf. However, this car sit’s lower and much wider and is just packed with tons of goodies. Unfortunately it’s just a concept car. Let’s just say if this ever went into full production an EZ Lip team member would be all over that!

1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko
We have little throwback for you next. We look back at the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko edition. This car was produced and designed under the supervision of Don Yenko who was a well known American race car driver and better known after helping produce the Yenko Camaro. The Yenko was a high-performance version of the regular Chevy Camaro. Only 201 Yenko models were produced and sold in 1969. The Yenko along with the performance upgrades came with some visual additions such as; front and rear spoilers, different hood design, some came with the twin stripes and the Yenko 427 badges to let you know this bad boy was the real deal. We all have that soft spot for classic American Muscle and this is the car that the EZ Lip team agreed had to take number one pick for us.

Nissan GTR R-34
Our last car probably comes from a die-hard Fast and Furious fan. Want one more hint? It goes by the name of Godzilla….. That’s right the Nissan GTR! Not any GTR though, specifically the Nissan GTR R-34. This is the king of cars to any import lover. The GTR is the flagship brand of performance in the Nissan portfolio. Trying to get your hands on one of these rides is not the easiest. Especially since it just became legal throughout parts of North America. The Nissan GTR R-34 is a true head turner. Whether you are a muscle car fan, truck fan or any type of fan out there it’s safe to say most people can respectfully smile when they see or hear the R-34 nearby. Whether you want to take this car to the track, daily it or take it out for a nice Sunday photoshoot it will definitely put one heck of a smile on your face.
