You do understand that each item put on this car is top of line, it honestly doesn't get any better. The money put into this car is insane. The wheels alone are about $10k.

They put the best of best on this car and your worried about them not putting the hideous performance wheel.

Iím not normally a negative poster, but since you set this up as a mega project, I guess Iím more critical of it than other private mods.

From the start, all that work just to get a factory color? Why not a custom color? Personal choice, and impatient customer I guess.

So you basically killed all cooling to the driverís side front brake by blocking most of the duct with the air intake filter, thatíll be great on the track.

Why didnít you install the roll bar before painting, to make certain the color was an exact match? Could have been a timing issue I guess.

If the Ericsson doors take 8 weeks to make and import and you got them in 2, were they the demo set?

Itís an auto!?! Again, personal customer choice I guess.

If you wanted oil and water temps, why didnít you install the BMW Performance LED wheel (the only manufacturer that I know of other than Ferrari that offers a wheel with rev indicators) which already has oil and water temp display, rather than the completely non-stock looking Stack gauges?

So at the end of the day, from the outside itís a factory color, with bolt on wheels/brakes/exhaust/coilovers.......

And this is supposed to compete with Enzo Ferrariís personal legacy? Fail.

Sorry, mostly nice mod job, but with the above as your target, and unlimited budget, not feeling it.

I know time was an issue, but no engine mods other than a bolt on supercharger/exhaust, or did you just not list them?

P.S. Opening line: ďHumanity has been obsessed with time since the dawn of history.Ē History by definition is recorded events in time. So, in other words, weíve been obsessed with time since the dawn of time. lol

Again, interior work is great. Maybe I'm just in a bad mood, and/or hyper critical. Not my car, not my project. And if he's got all the $ in the world and doesn't car, all the better.

In my mind when you're building a full tear down, exclusive project, the possibility of a stock car rolling up beside with a few bolt on mods and from the outside looking EXACTLY the same, should be zero.
IND builds cars, they don't write poetry books lol. They tried to give a nice intro to the car and a short summary of what went into the build outside of the parts and labor. Personally i appreciated the narrative over " we had not time, here are the pictures "

No matter how much money you put into the car it'll still look like a stock car with bolt on rims, breaks, and exhaust from the outside. Unless you were thinking of a fast and furious body kit with a salad bar wing on the trunk. Now that would look ridiculous next to the buggatis and enzo.

The team at IND have proved over and over again that they know what they are doing and are able to produce head turning vehicles in sync with their customers desires. Why did they choose gauges over performance steering wheel? Why did they choose brembo over x? Why did they choose bbs over y? There are an infinite combinations of parts but i personally choose to believe that IND know which part best suits the essence of the project set forth by the customer, An essence and purpose that we will never know the details of.

Enjoy the pics of this masterpiece, putting a lot of money into a car doesn't require the car to scream " I'M WORTH MORE THAN YOUR LIFE ". I think this will make a fine addition to Mr. Norton's slew of exotic dreamhicles.

amazing build two questions though.

1. do the leather panels on the front door and rear come off seperately or are they once piece with the panels?

2. did you guys manage to find us a PNP solution for the bmw perf seats (head rest restraint)?

As a project by itself this is really impressive, especially the CF interior.

As a project with apparently unlimited budget, I would commission the M Division to get me a GTS federalized for the USA instead, IMO. After all, we are talking about an Enzo in the same sentence as an M3, and about money.

I really don't get the time constraints of the customer, but that's me.

He's just a guy that loves all cars. They are driven hard and often, including track days. This car will see track time shortly after he receives it.
