Since 2006, the Manila Auto Salon has gathered countless Filipino car enthusiasts. This year’s show was held at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia from November 12-15, 2015. Check out some of my picks during the display.
With the number of spectators and no media-exclusive day shoots, taking photos of the cars ain’t a walk in the park. For these types of events, close-up shots work best.
Never knew that we had a rotary-powered KP61 in the Philippines!
Honda EG6 done right.
Finally, a show car here with real patina.
Aimgain makes its way on our shores through this Zn6.
My favorite truck during the show, a FJ70 done right.
Car Porn Racing held a show within the show with their line-up.
Ian King’s ‘Black Manta‘ makes its first debut, the C6 Corvette was built secretly for 3 years. Car Porn Racing collaborated with Filipino-designer Jon Sibal for the design process.
Built thru CNC scanning and foam molds, the car’s one-off fenders was designed around the massive DPE Wheels. I personally took several photos of the car during its transformation at the shop, but those are reserved for a full feature after its final stage. As I speak, the car is off to another transformation for its ultimate goal – SEMA 2016.
The LS3 adds power from the Edelbrock Supercharger kit which is rated at 599HP. The car won the ‘Best of Show for a Extreme Custom car’.
The one and only Liberty Walk 458 in Manila was also displayed.
Clean yet wild!
TRA Kyoto kits still continues to be the unbeatable formula in making a car look good. No specs for these 2 right now as I am currently scheduling individual shoots.
Keith Bryan Haw debuted his Liberty Walk 997 Turbo which won ‘Best of Show/Best Custom Sports Car’.
‘Custom everything’ on his set of DPE Wheels.
This is the first Liberty Walk 997 Porsche to run 20’s – which looks superb.
Coy Enriquez went for the sophisticated approach on his Rocket Bunny RC-F. The proper choice of finish for the wheels ads a overall appeal.
Stay tuned for several photoshoots. Hope you enjoyed this one.
