Tokyo Auto Salon 2012 | Video Recap

Japan is known for their rich car culture from VIP style (our favorite Japanese genre) to drifting (did we just see a CAMRY drift?!?) and unexplainable styles like their extreme custom vans (strange!). Not only do the Japanese create unique styles of their own, but they embrace and in some cases improve upon American car styles. The Tokyo Auto Salon is always an event we look forward to because of the raw, innovative ideas on display and we definitely plan on attending in the future. Shout out to Luxe Huxham for this dope visual from the show!

2012 Updates | Carma Brand

Now that we have your attention, there’s a lot going on right now at CARMA. As you can see, our website has underwent a fresh re-design which we feel is much cleaner and easier on the eyes. We also added some of our more popular blog posts on the sidebar so they don’t get lost in the mix. The Spring/Summer additions to our line (more Men’s designs, Women’s tanks, etc) have also arrived and we’re currently organizing all the necessary components to properly launch the Spring/Summer lookbook. Stay tuned!

Roadstarr Motorsports | Los Angeles

Roadstarr Motorsports | Los Angeles

Roadstarr Motorsports does a little bit of everything in the custom car game in Los Angeles. Roadstarr is involved in exotic automobile sales, leasing, rentals, and customization. When we came across their most recent calendar photoshoot, we knew that our readers would enjoy. The photoshoot features a Rolls Royce Ghost, a Bentley Mulsanne, an Audi R8, and some very beautiful models. Make sure to like the Roadstarr fanpage on Facebook.

If the license plate looks familiar to some of you, that is because they also provide cars for a lot of music videos. Check out their custom T-Rex and Aston Martin Rapide featured in Tyga’s new Grand Theft Auto themed ‘Rack City’ music video below.

Freddie Gibbs x Carma Brand | ATL

CTE’s own Freddie Gibbs was in the ATL recording with Jeezy among other things and cleared some time to kick it with us before heading to the Smokers Club Tour for an impromptu performance.  On top of Gangsta Gibbs’ ridiculous flow, he also has genuine love for custom cars which obviously fits in perfectly with Carma. If you haven’t copped Gibbs’ most recent mixtape, Cold Day in Hell, do it here and also check out the mixtape’s lyric book here.

Parked Outside | Jackie Chain, Bun B, Big KRIT

The Houston-inspired car culture scene prevalent throughout the Third Coast had a short stint in the mainstream during the Slim Thug / Paul Wall / Mike Jones era with videos showcasing candy old schools on swangas on the regular. Big KRIT and others are beginning to rejuvenate the niche and Jackie Chain’s video for ‘Parked Outside’ is evident of this. In addition to verses from Alabama rapper, Jackie Chain, the track features Big KRIT and the legend, Bun B. The visual is brought to you by none other than Motion Family who have produced videos for TI, Ludacris and Lil Wayne among many others.

2012 Charger Blacktop Edition

2012 Charger Blacktop Edition

Dodge has definitely impressed us offering creative packages and style options for the past seven years. It began with the 2005 DUB Edition 300C and Magnum RT and evolved ever since. Of course, all the blogs are talking about the Beats by Dre audio system which is pretty dope. Usually factory versions of well-known audio systems tend to be on the weak side (I.E. Kicker system in the previous Charger SRT8) but we definitely would like to try it out. The only down side to the Blacktop edition is that it’s ONLY available as a V6 model but hopefully that will change.

Liberty Walk Japan [Video]

Check out this video from Liberty Walk Japan, who create some of the most aggressive body kits in the world. Most of you might remember the green Murcielago and the Charcoal Gray 300C from SEMA this year with the Liberty Walk Body Kits. Here is a quick look into the lifestyle of the luxury car game in Japan and a great interview with president of Liberty Walk, Kato-san.
Great short film by Luke Juxham.
