The Ultimate Dubs show is always a hot ticket to see the latest UK builds unveiled for the new show season. This year was no exception, with a number of never-before-seen  cars breaking through. Despite the name, Ultimate Dubs also hosts other marques, and the  show gels together in  a consistent, ultra-clean style.

Keeping a project under wraps before the show is no easy task, especially considering the ever increasing temptation to show off your shots on social media. Matt Woodgate (@bagged_997 on Instagram) managed to resist,  and only first showed his Porsche 997, slung low on 9 and 12 inch-wide Rotiform LHR,  at the Telford International Centre.

The car started life as a pearlescent black Carrera, but, with the addition of a genuine 997 GT3 front bumper and and a GT3 RS decklid, the car took  on a more aggressive personality. Instagram followers of the project may have guessed the route the car might take, but few would have known just how effective the finished product would look.

Mixing a German sports car with Japanese styling influences and a tarmac scraping ride height was a winning formula. In controlling the ride height, Matt chose Air Lift Performance 3P management. The pressure sensing version of Air Lift Performance’s latest management system couples with the Air Lift Performance smartphone  app, allowing an incredibly accurate control of the air bag pressure.

Inside, Matt continued with the Japanese styling theme, using a pair of Bride Low Max seats to accent the OE extended leather dash. The Porsche 911 is an iconic sports car, and Air Lift Performance 3P enabled Matt to get a show-stopping look, with further improved driving dynamics.
