…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Lamborghini Jalpa?

Lamborghini Jalpa

With only 255 horses on tap, the Lamborghini Jalpa was not known to be the fastest of bulls. However, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t room for improvement.

The Jalpa that you see here, owned by a Lamborghini enthusiast with a big dream and a bigger wallet, was the beneficiary of a twin turbo implant from a Mitsubishi 3000GT, and has apparently shown a few Murcielago owners a thing or two on the track.

Sleeper and Lamborghini in the same sentence?

Apparently so.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: STRUT?

Strut

Today’s tuner is a little different. STRUT doesn’t do engines, suspensions, or transmissions. STRUT does automotive accessories. This isn’t just any old mom and pop accessory business that sells the latest glue on grills through your local Pep Boys though. Oh no. STRUT caters to a higher end clientele. You may have seen their stuff on Unique Whips, and obvious devotee of the STRUT line. That’s because STRUT is the name to trust when you want to add a little bling to your Bentley, luxury to your Land Rover, or class to your Cadillac. They don’t even like to call the products they sell accessories, preferring the words “automotive jewelry” instead.

Their automotive jewelry collection is “designed for discriminating automotive enthusiasts who demand the height of sophistication and style in all of life’s passions”. Each piece is handcrafted from chromed 316L stainless steel, hand-polished, then signed by the artisan, and is designed to provide “ongoing luster and a superior appearance” through any weather condition.

I definitely like the look STRUT is going for, with very clean lines and a smooth, subtle appearance. STRUT specializes in grilles, hood vents, side vents, replacement badges, and accessory plates, with a focus on turning your everyday ride into a STRUTmobile, and I definitely wouldn’t mind having one of those.
