Chris Hill has been building cars since he was a kid with his father. "He was a IMSA and LMS series driver at the time," Hill mentions, "so naturally I fell in love with cars." His first couple of cars were modified to the current trends at the time - radiation symbols on the hood and blitz body kits. "This was way back in 1999," laughs Hill, "so give me a break." Since then, he's built everything from Nissans to Ferraris. "Some of these builds include a Do-Luck wide body Nissan 350Z, Amuse wide body 370Z, wide body BMW M3s, Ferrari 458 with Prior wide body and more," he remembers.

Many years and builds later, it now brings us to Hill's 2020 Toyota GR Supra Launch Edition. "I purchased it in December of 2019 and received it in July of 2019." Three months prior to receiving the car, Hill was lucky enough to have the first Pandem Rocket Bunny wide body kit for the Supra granted to him by Kei Muira San. "Once the car got here we were determined to have it ready for SEMA in November of 2019," he states. They started with performance and were at one point the highest HP A90 Supra in the world. Since then, they've focused on primarily the looks and functionality of the vehicle. "Adding the wide body kit, air suspension, bigger turbo kit, electronics and more," Hill mentions.

One of Hill's best friends, Brian Butkovich, has been there every step of the way and tours with him throughout the country racing, drifting and showing the car.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION

"Pandem/RB wide body kit because of the way it makes the car look and feel. I feel this is the way Toyota should have released the car."

FUTURE MODIFICATIONS

"I have a massive list of modifications to be added to the car. Everything from spark plugs to tubular exhaust manifold, to a bigger wing and more. We've got a long way to go."
