Have you always wanted to roll in a top tuner vehicle, but lacked the time or flow to build one? If this sounds like you then perk up because BP Products North America wants to give this ultimate ride to you! All you have to do is win the Amoco Ultimate® Ride Sweepstakes. You could be the lucky one who gets the keys to this Mazda RX-8 that’s being fully-customized by top tuner and trendsetter Jay Laub.
A veteran of the North American import tuning scene, Laub has taken home over 100 best in show awards for his unique car designs. Best known for his wildly-modified 1997 Mazda RX-7, Laub continues to impress enthusiasts and judges with his unique creations. The Amoco Ultimate® Ride Sweepstakes marks the first time Laub has given away one of his custom cars.
“My passion is customizing cars. This alliance with BP has allowed me to modify a top-notch Mazda RX-8 for one lucky fan who shares my love for high performance vehicles,” said Laub. “The Amoco Ultimate Ride illustrates class, quality and top-notch parts – I am excited for whomever gets to drive it home!”
To this end the stock RX-8 will be transformed into an ultimate ride thanks to a host of inside and out modifications like engine and other assorted performance upgrades, a custom interior featuring a new stereo entertainment system, wheels, body kit and Laub’s own signature paint scheme. This supercharged one-of-a-kind Mazda RX-8 embodies quality, power and performance.
The Amoco Ultimate Ride RX-8 was shown for the first time at last Friday’s Formula Drift team event at the Grand Prix of Cleveland. But, before you get your squeaky-clean mitts on this mean green machine, the vehicle will be going on tour throughout the country to help raise awareness for Amoco Ultima te fuels. Featured stops include the Formula Drift event in New Jersey on Sept. 8, NOPI Nationals in Atlanta from Sept. 15-17, plus the huge SEMA Show in Vegas in early November.
For the full event schedule, official contest rules and regulations, visit www.amocoultimate.com where you can also enter the contest on-line until December 1, 2007. Apparently the site will be updated with photos of the car during various stages of the project. As its nearing completion, the RX-8 is looking much nicer than the artist’s rendering. If we get any more details on the car, details will follow.
The Amoco Ultimate® Ride Sweepstakes Mazda RX-8 will be a dream come true for some lucky fan. Are you feeling lucky punk?
