Broadway Bully

Saturday 09 March, 2013 | By Ken

The last time we Featured Rob’s “24K” coupe here on SNTRL, titled, the Gold Standard, we brought to you, one of New York City’s iconic rides sporting the Honda badge. 24K has made her way across newsfeeds and tweets across the globe, inspiring many along the way with it’s combination of power, beauty and versatility. Staying true to the gold theme, for the winter season of 2012-2013, Rob of Vraceworks went with some subtle changes to his setup, most notably, the Walker Japan front bumper and the Klutch wheels “24K edition” to go along with even more glittering gold under the hood. Still extremely clean, still classy, and still bullying on Broadway, 24K is a fixture on the streets that still breaks necks daily.

Freezing rain, black ice and temperatures in the teen’s only mean that the heater has to be turned up. 24K is truly driven at any time of the day or night, 24/7. From Harlem, driving down Broadway to the heart of Manhattan, the coupe blends right-in with the crowd like a celebrity walking around in SoHo, and that’s just the way a true New Yorker handles oneself. Street smart, savvy and ready-for-anything in any environment, from the concrete jungle of NYC to the sunny streets of Florida to the tarmac on an Auto-X course. 24K is sure to bring more than a few smiles with her looks and raw power. Until next time we revisit Rob and his coupe again, enjoy the latest shoot, and if you are in the NYC area, don’t be surprised to see the coupe at a local meet, at the Vraceworks shop or simply cruising by you on Broadway.
