Meguiar's Wraptivo Custom Wraps to Turn Heads With 'Hellaflush' Nissan GT-R at SEMA

Ernie Manansala is no stranger to building cars. Most well known for his NOS Lexus SC300, it looks like Manansala has moved on to bigger and better things, teaming up with Wraptivo to build one menacingly good looking Nissan GT-R for SEMA.

On the outside, it looks like the GT-R has received a full flat black wrap treatment with some carbon fiber accents including the roof. The wheels look fully powdercoated a contrasting matte red with a “hellaflush” fitment with wheelspacers courtesy Fatlace. That is an awesome and aggressive fitment, pushing the wheels as far out as possible, without looking too ridiculous.

Suspension upgrades come from a set of KW coilovers while the Advan wheels are wrapped with a set of Falken Tires. Ernie hasn’t disclosed any full vehicle shots, but we’ll be sure to add this to our growing list of cars to check out at SEMA this year. No doubt it will be joining a host of other wild creations at Meguiar’s Wraptivo booth at SEMA.

Full SEMA coverage starts November 2nd. Until then, check out our SEMA Preview here.
