Aftermarket tuner John Pangilinan is known for turning cars into works of art for SEMA shows, and this year is no exception. Using a 2015 Hyundai Sonata as his canvas, Pangilinan combined the driving dynamics of the sexy sedan with the striking graphics of Los Angeles street art to create the JP Edition Sonata SEMA Concept.
“Inspired by a trip earlier this year to the Pow! Wow! Hawai’i art event in Hawaii, I wanted to connect the street art culture to automotive, without going too over the top with a full blown art car,” said John Pangilinan. “This build features a balance of performance products, in-car entertainment with the latest innovations, and clean styling, representing the enthusiasts whose cars showcase an extension of their personalities and lifestyles.”
Pangilinan began this special edition Sonata with stock white body paint, allowing it to act as a canvas as he worked with Flexfit|BSCMP and Mr. 44, a renowned LA-based street artist, to create a balance between the world of street art and that of car enthusiasts. This balance was found with an AEM cold air intake, a MagnaFlow exhaust kit, and a hot charge pipe from Bisimoto engineering, along with 19-inch RAYS Gram Lights 57Getter wheels that add the perfect artistic touch to the car’s custom exterior.
