The year may be drawing to a close but there’s always exciting things happening at Air Lift Performance. One of the most recent projects turned out to be a first for Air Lift, the Nissan R35 GT-R. This 480bhp Nurburgring monster is one of the fastest production cars money can buy, but this wasn’t your typical GT-R Air Lift would be working on…
When it comes to AWD performance the Subaru Impreza platform is one of the best in the business! The unique song of its flat-four engine and super-aggressive styling has made it a firm favourite of tuners and enthusiasts worldwide, especially when stanced on a killer set of wheels.
