Khyzyl Saleem, or ‘@the_kyza‘ as the internet knows him, should be a couple of names you already recognise by now. He’s been involved with may Air Lift Performance orientated builds in the last few years but this one is his latest and is a special one, because it is his own.

Being a digital concept artist Khyzyl spends his days dreaming up futuristic landscapes and impossible shapes. If you are familiar with his vehicle renders you might be surprised by the classy and restrained look of his RX7. That is absolutely intentional however, as he chose the FD3S because of its pretty body lines.

This car is actually his first car. Fresh from passing his driving test Khyzyl jumped into the rotary rocket. An idea not for the feint hearted. Truth is, Khyzyl absolutely adores the rotary engine and it allows him to have his very own slice of 787B spirit on his driveway.

Speaking of which, that spirit is amplified by the addition of Fifteen52 holeshot wheels, reminiscent of mid 90s race cars. The gold centres look great against the freshly repainted red bodywork. The RX7 has a very low roof line, exaggerated by being dropped on a custom Air Lift Performance bag setup. In real life it looks impossibly low and it’s actually hard to spot on the show field until you get up close.

Khyzyl told us this is only version one for the build and he’s rendering plans for a much more aggressive makeover. Will he go the whole hog and make it into a life like Khyza render? We are certainly intrigued to find out!
