For those of you who have never been to Canada, the fitment scene is alive and well in Toronto! Fitted Showcase is an annual show hosted by our friends at Stretch & Poke and this year we teamed up with Chris Chu from Backstage Productions to capture the event and all that Canada’s aggressive fitment culture has to offer. Stretch & Poke hosted the first aggressive fitment event in Toronto, and most likely Canada back in 2010. Now in their 3rd year of hosting the event both the number and quality of cars has grown. With over 500 cars packing out Downsview Park this year this looks like an event everyone should look forward to for years to come!
I recently had a chance to shoot this amazing beast of a super car, and let’s just say, “super car” is an understatement. The sounds that this engine makes is orgasmic and exhilarating. I cherished every moment of my time with it. More photos after the jump! Read More
In recent years, the aggressive fitment/stance scene has infected car enthusiasts all over the word in an overwhelming fashion. We have seen this trend explode in North America, Europe, and Japan, while other regions are catching up rapidly: Austrailia, Thailand, even Korea. However, today we are introducing something completely new to us, the Chinese scene. Read More
This week we bring you a wallpaper of the Jotech Motorsports Lamborghini “Verde Ithica” Green widebody GT-R, photographed by the talented Mr. Dale Martin. Jotech contracted HRE wheels to build a one off custom set of their 593RS wheels to fill the wide body arches on this GT-R, and Dale snapped this photo while shooting the car recently for HRE with Pepper Yandell. Dale is a Texas based photographer known for his amazing retouching skills, and this photo is just another example of one of his surreal edits! If you live in the Dallas, Texas area and you are interested in having your car featured here on Canibeat leave a comment below!
Due to the recent uprise of RWB / RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF builds online some often forget the other wide body builds that are featured on Porsches. Last weekend I had a chance to shoot this fresh Porsche Boxster Spyder with a wide body kit. I will admit that I was very skeptical at first since the RWB builds are pretty much the pinnacle of wide bodied Porsches (as hyped up by the internet), but after seeing it and hearing it I had a quick change of heart. I hope you can agree. Read More

This week I am excited to share three beautiful photos with you taken by the talented Mr. William Stern. Unless you have been living under a rock the past couple years, odds are you have found yourself admiring one of the many well executed cars sporting ADV.1’s stunning wheels. Well Will is the official photographer for ADV.1 Wheels and the man behind many of the stunning photos you see on their website, catalog, and Facebook page every day. So when he offered to share some of his photos here on Canibeat I couldn’t resist posting a few of my personal favorites in high-res for everyone to enjoy! This first car is ADV.1 wheels owner, Jordan Swerdloff’s, latest project f430 Novitec!
This week we bring you a rather unique platform with well executed fitment. Say what you will about Kia’s but Chris’s bagged and boosted Optima is sitting nice on the Vossen CV3 wheels. This is probably the first Kia we have ever featured here on Canibeat, but it probably won’t be the last if more of them start looking like this! Thanks to John Soufia for sharing this photos with us, be sure to check out more of his work here!
With the Import Alliance spring meet last Sunday, our friends at Southrnfresh hosted an event at Mainstream Performance on Saturday in an effort to welcome all of the guests to the city. While much smaller than the main IA event, the SF pre-meet is always a perfect time to chill with friends in a much more relaxed atmosphere, while getting an advance look at who the superstars will be at the main event the next day. As always, the meet was a success, pulling in a wide variety of cars from all over the Southeast. Read More
Formula Drift is finally back in full swing and we’re excited to bring you the coverage. There were plenty of rookies this year that competed in the qualifying but not too many made it to the final 32. Along with the high number of rookies, there were also plenty of crashes too. Nevertheless, it was action-packed and a huge adrenaline rush to watch from the sidelines. Hopefully you get the same rush with our coverage. Read More
I shot this car two weeks before Wekfest San Francisco this year and pulled an all-nighter to finish editing this shoot before I drove up to norcal. The feature was shot for the May 2012 issue of Performance BMW magazine. Here are a couple photos from the shoot. Please support print and get your copy of the feature. It’s out now. And before anyone says anything, the car needs the wing. It’s tracked. Read More
