Warp Zone New Age Customs has been pretty controversial at CustomPinoyRides.com. But for good reason. Because they can turn the most common of vehicles into all out show cars, pushing the envelope when it comes to custom body modifications. From their Honda Civic EG Hatchback with a custom Audi R8-inspired front clip, to the Honda Accord with custom Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren-inspired body conversion.
But hey, those cars are meant to show the world what they can do. Extreme conversions aside, they also come up with breathtaking rides, without having to mutate metal.
Enter Philip Laude’s 2000 Honda Civic VTi.
This car actually started life as an ordinary Honda Civic. But then the tuner bug took a good bite-sized chunk out of Philip, and he began the tuning regimen in an attempt to heal the wound. So out went the stock wheels, and in came 17-inch Rota Torque Wheels wrapped in 215/40R17 Kumho Rubber.
Fast forward through time a bit, and Philip found himself having a ride that manages to get to the next stoplight faster than most of the other Honda Civic’s next to him. This is made possible by performance upgrades that go from a K&N Air Filter, to Fremuff High-Performance Headers, to a custom exhaust, and an HKS Muffler. And since this is now a show car, the entire engine bay was dressed up to look so clean, it’s as if you could eat off of it. And this spectacular engine is covered by an equally spectacular Mugen hood.
But the virus from the tuning bug just won’t give up that easily. So work began on the interior. This awesome all-red custom interior is a product of Seatmate Auto Interiors. A Momo steering wheel was installed to match the rest of the interior. Along with a good looking interior, you have got to have one that sounds good. In-Car Entertainment is courtesy of an Ice Power 5-inch Touch-Screen Head Unit, plus a JBL subwoofer powered by an Alpine V12 amplifier gives that heart-pounding bass that makes heads bounce and bodies move.
And then came the time to repaint the car. Finding himself discontented with just candy apple red, Philip decided to add a slpash of black to give it a totally unique look. Two-tone black and red is something you won’t see in car shows, let alone on the city streets. And it turned out to look just awesome! Don’t you agree?
