We had a great time at the Driven Show in Calgary this past Saturday May 23rd at the Olympic Oval. It has been a 1 year hiatus since the last Driven Show was here in 2013. So it is no surprise that people were very anxious and excited for the show this year.
Haute AG was lucky enough too have reserved a booth for the show this year. We hoped to have our project BMW M3 turbo widebody in the show, however it is still a work in progress. Although our project G35 LSX was finished enough to display in our booth, it is still a few weeks away from being turn key.
Another noticeable car we had in our booth was our customers stunning BMW E46 M3 CSL conversion. This car had oem CSL parts such as the bumpers, carbon fibre roof, carbon fibre door cards, steering wheel and centre console. The car also features MCS coilovers, Brembo GT brakes, Apex wheels, and a full Supersprint exhaust from the headers back. Just a beautiful example of the E46.
Another cool car we had was our recently stanced and fitted Mercedes E55. This is an extremely fast car that has upgrades including; Kleeman headers, Kleeman exhaust, Kleeman small pulley, Bosch intercooler, heat exchanger, Eurocharge tune, intake, and Programma lowering module. One day before the show we were scrambling to fit the new wheels which are Wedssport SA15R. These wheels were never meant to fit the Mercedes, so we did a lot of custom work to get these wheels to fit. Not many people would venture down this path, but we wanted to do something different and unique. They came out great and we finished them in time for the show!
Our fourth car we had in our booth was our clients mint 2005 Porsche Turbo S. This car came fully loaded from the factory with options that include: carbon ceramic brakes, carbon fibre interior, yellow stitching. As well as upgrades that include: Techart wheels, eibach lowering springs, and a custom sound system with Alpine touch screen interface.
