Owner: Frankie Villalobos
Organization: Projekt Cars
Frankie Villalobos first started with Projekt Cars in 2013. We were able to do a full make-over on his Nissan 350z. It was outfitted with a new body kit, Mach Wheels, R1 Concept brakes, and a few performance mods, to add to those Frankie had already installed. We were quite impressed with Frankie’s enthusiasm, who was always eager to learn new automotive skills.
In 2014, Mr Villalobos decided to buy the new Hyundai Veloster turbo, and set his sights on SEMA. With a few calls to sponsors Projekt Cars has worked with for over a decade, the Veloster began looking like a SEMA potential. Extreme Dimensions provided an aggressve body kit that was very recognizable over the stock black paint. Konig provided the SEMA spot, and a set of 18″ wheels, that housed the R1 Concepts rotors and pads. Magnaflow, K&N, and DeatschWerks supplied the “GoFast” performance enhancements, while Vibe Audio (from the UK) supplied the tunes.
The final product was received well in Las Vegas, as it was displayed in the front entrance at SEMA 2014. Frankie did a great job representing his sponsors and the Projekt Cars organization. We now await for him to come back from Naval training to see what he has in store for his modified Veloster
