Many lowriders we’ve seen can’t be exactly described as tasteful, but this 1963 Chevrolet Impala owned by the late Kobe Bryant certainly is.

Listed for sale on Goldin Auctions, this Impala was brought into West Coast Customs (WCC) by Bryant’s wife Vanessa in 2006, who commissioned the car for him as a Christmas gift.

The California-based tuning shop began by disassembling the car and blasting the body to bare metal. They then gave a multi-coat paint finish in a mix of purple and royal blue that was custom blended by House of Kolor. The body received all new glass, moldings and weather stripping, while all the chrome was meticulously refinished. The car also features 13-inch 100-spoke Dayton wire wheels shod in Reliant Super Ride tires.

WCC outfitted the interior with all-new white leather upholstery studded with genuine Swarovski crystals, offset by royal blue piping and carpets to complement the exterior. A trunk-mounted stereo system features a powerful Sony amplifier in addition to multiple speakers and subwoofers. Rounding off the interior mods are a power tilt steering wheel and standalone tachometer.

Mind you, the changes made to this Impala weren’t purely aesthetic. The 5.4-liter V8 that originally came with the car was completely rebuilt with custom Edelbrock headers and billet accessories. That engine now feeds a new glasspack dual exhaust setup, and the front brakes were converted from drums to hydraulic discs.

Continuing with the mechanicals, as is the case with lowriders such as this, the suspension was completely customized with a hydraulic system featuring two Pro Hopper “Envious Touch” pumps, three Adel dumps, and front 6″ and rear 12″ cylinders. The whole system has four switches, eight batteries, and eight solenoids. Additionally, the rear end features a coilover setup and molded upper A-arms for improved ride quality.

Considering this car is nearly 60 years old, the fact that it has only 24,729 miles on the odometer is quite impressive. Right now, and with five days until the auction ends, bidding stands at $140,000, but it is expected to sell for up to $250,000.

Driving a car fast and well on a tight, twisty road lined with trees on either side takes a lot of skill. It also takes some massive balls, as the Japanese driver of this blue Honda S2000 obviously has.

This clip only recently came across our radar having first been posted in May 2020. While it’s not new, it shows some incredible onboard footage from the S2000 as it competes in a Time Attack session through a forest in Japan.

The S2000 in question sports a host of aftermarket aerodynamic parts to stick it to the pavement but as far as we can tell, no significant alterations have been made to the high-revving four-cylinder VTEC engine.

As soon as the driver gets off the line, it’s obvious that he is extremely comfortable behind the wheel and knows how to drive the sports car to its absolute limits. At the 1:52 mark of the video, the driver of the S2000 has a particularly scary moment as he catches air over a crest in the road before slamming back into the pavement and briefly bouncing back up into the air for a second time.

The force of these two hits kicks out the tail of the Honda and it seems inevitable the driver will crash heavily. However, thanks to his lightning-quick reflexes, he is able to keep the car under control. Making things all the more impressive is the fact that the driver continued to speed through the forest at frightening speeds despite the near-miss, showing to us mere mortals that professional racing drivers have more than just blood pumping through their veins.
