Wait, That’s a Kia?

Is the line we’ve been hearing all season.

To say a modded Forte Koup is hard to come by, is an understatement.  With parts few and far between, sometimes you have to get a little creative to get what you want.  That’s exactly what Brianna has done, with a front lip borrowed from the Mazda3, RallyArmor mudflaps from the WRX, and a custom headlight retrofit from Winnipeg HID, she’s built a car all it’s own.

When the season began, the plans were fairly simple, lowering springs.  But! We all know it’s never that simple, as the summer went on, research continued and parts began to show up.

With the car buttoned up, and finished for the season, it was entered into Winnipeg Speedfest where it brought home ‘Best Female Build’.  We were ecstatic to see the little Kia go from stock to winning awards in only a single season.

Now that we’re headed towards the end of the season, it’s back into the planning phases to see what’s next for the Koup.  Time will tell what happens, but we can’t wait to see what’s next!

Who We Are

We are not a car club. We are a group of friends with a common passion, our cars. Although all of us have different tastes, we take pride in each other and the vehicles we have built.

Our Goal

We’re here to provide exposure for any and every cool build we come upon, and give recognition to cars in our home town. Whether it’s drag racing, hard parking, or anything in between, we like it all.
