Kunal Sharma: 2008 Infiniti G37

Kunal Sharma grew up as a kid in Ottawa, ON who loved playing with Hot Wheels diecast cars, and who had a passion for outer space. As Sharma grew older, some of the wilder designs, at times, inspired him to pursue what he liked, regardless of how others perceived it. To this day, it has had a lasting impact on the many design choices, particularly on his 2008 Infiniti G37.

"There are many elements of my car you wouldn't find ripped out of Fast & Furious," mentions Sharma, "such as the space-themed interior and exterior, or the wild shuriken-looking wheels." Allowing his passion to bleed into the build has allowed it to flourish into something great, and that excites Sharma and everyone else around him.

"



My decision to buy this car was influenced by my friend Jason," states Sharma, "who in 2016, actually owned a G35 and helped ease me into the car world." 2 years later, Sharma ended up purchasing the Infiniti G37 with the sole intention of keeping it as a daily until he bought a better car. As time passed, the car grew on him, and he returned some of the love by wrapping the car.

As time progressed, Sharma kept making further modifications until he ended up with one of - if not the - most heavily modified VQ37VHR platform cars in Canada.

"



I have never really looked at another build and aspired to be like them," states Sharma, "rather, I treat every build I see as a lesson." Two of the most important builds to him are that of Jagraj Grewal with his bagged Jeep, and Drew Evans with his Liberty Walk Infiniti G37 Sedan. "These two monumental builds are a testament to the fact that if you stay true to your vision and focus on your dreams, you can build something truly amazing."

In the car world, people buy and dispose of cars every year or two. And the amazing gems that shine through, even after many years, are the ones where the owner never gives up on them.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION

"My favorite modification is the Starry Night roof liner done by GameChangers Installations, on the second G37 coupe/sedan in the world. As a scientist, I share a passion for space and many aspects of my car are reflective of my passion. There's something serene and beautiful about having the night sky within your car wherever you go, and it is truly one of the most beautiful modifications I have ever seen."
