Ceratos Given A Makeover For A Day At The Tennis
- Custom garage turns on the glamour on the move
- Putting on the glitz for the Australian Open
Like any serious debutants, a pair of Kia Ceratos have gone the extra mile with a glamorous makeover for their duties at the Australian Open tennis.
With sparkling new colours, a range of modifications and a bit of fancy trimming the two new hatches are a world apart from their pre-makeover donors.
The Orange Storm started life as a white manual Cerato S before a flash paint-job _ inspired by the stunning Stinger GT Federation concept from 2017 _ turned it into a real head-turner.
So much so that 17-time Grand Slam Champion and Kia Ambassador Rafael Nadal couldn’t resist adding his signature to the outfit.
As well as the new clothes, the Orange Storm Cerato benefitted from a set of 19-inch Works Emotion Kiwami rims, some look-at-me underbody LED lighting, enhanced Brembo brakes, side skirt extensions, an illuminated GT logo in the side skirts, custom exhaust, rear spoiler, some matte black trim and black roof all topped off by a lowered suspension package.
For the Sinister Ruby Red, which began as a 7-speed DCT GT, the accessory choices were very similar with the exception of a set of 19-inch Avant Garde M580 rims, gloss black highlights and a front-mounted intercooler.
Interior re-trimming on both cars highlights sports bucket seats with matched stitching and sports steering wheels.
The bespoke make-over was performed by Queen St Customs at Revesby in Sydney and will remain a one off exercise, not available as an option to Cerato owners.
