“I like the constant change and the options of so many different designs,” said De Encio. “There are so many ways to express yourself when you customize a vehicle. One of his designs was the star of the Infiniti booth at SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada.

“We call it the G37 Sedan Concept,” said De Encio. “Our design was European, inside and out. Our G37 Sedan is equally ready for the Autobahn as it is for a night on the Las Vegas Strip.” Automotive Design Concepts extended the fenders for more than 2.5 inches for a wide body approach. “The paint job, however, really stood out,” said De Encio. “It’s from PPG Industries Vibrance Collection Radiance line. We put eleven coats of Sunset Red Candy paint on top of a gold base.”

K&N supplied De Encio with its 69-7082TS air intake system. “K&N, hands down, makes the best air intake kit on the market today,” he said. “K&N sees the fit and enhances the way vehicles perform. We noticed the increase in horsepower immediately. We also equipped our car with a K&N oil filter.”
