…And Beyond: Scott Ramos’ Infiniti G35x
Rivaled by the ever-popular Nissan 350z, the Infiniti G35 quickly became the flagship sedan for the company’s North American sales. The X model, an AWD version of these sleek Japanese curves, was an unexpected treat when we received these pictures from Sean. We know the G35’s and 350z’s hold quite the following, and Scott Ramos has done quite a number on his Infiniti that we just couldn’t overlook.
The fun and games started for Scott with a simple set of coilovers to begin the slippery slope into the car scene. As you could imagine, or probably know, it all goes downhill from there, and appealing wheel fitment is something we all strive for, but only few ever achieve. For Scott, to accomplish this feat, a combination of air suspension and a stunning set of wheels was the way to go. This G35x pairs a slew of UV Air bag components as well as a SPC camber kit to get those gold-faced beauties to slide comfortably under the rear arches.
Fitment was crucial here, and in Scott’s case, the front end being able to lay subframe was a critical element to the car’s aesthetic. Wearing gold centers, and perfectly polished lips, Scott’s set of Rotiform TMB’s fit pretty damn snug while still pulling off a measurement of 19”x10.5”. The theme the car holds doesn’t stop on the outside though; Scott took a variety of influences into his decision-making for his daily driver.
We can assuredly say that the stance game is widespread across all sorts of car manufacturers, but there are only a few that can truly pull off the VIP look as well. Case in point, the G35x hides a beautiful red interior behind those mysterious curtains. Also neatly stored in the trunk is a 7-gallon, 8 port tank that takes care of the ride height situation.
Scott would like to thank Canibeat, Gengstout, Bagriders, Mike’s Auto Body, Rotiform, UV Air Suspension, Megan Racing, Sean Dougherty for the beautiful photo work, as well as Scott’s family and friends for the unrelenting support of such a fine example of Infiniti’s G35x. As the winter months close in, and enthusiasts hunker down during the winter months, rumor is out that Scott has already begun changing things up a bit for us next show season. We are excited to see what he rolls out of the garage in the coming months, so be sure to check back as there will definitely be a Part 2!
