Under Elmia 2012 så var det utan tvekan en sak som direkt utmärkte sej mest, störst och bäst.
oij oij´s monster.
ALLA var imponerande utav denna monter och samling bilar oavsett vad för sorts bilar man egentligen tycker om.
Och sen VILKEN samling bilar där stod med!
Nya som gamla.. Fina.. Och.. ”Oputsade”.. Där var allt.. Men en sak gemensamt.. Ingen av dom skulle klara en vägbula.
Alla på mässan snackade om detta och det snackas fortfarande om det.
Så.. Året innan så vann dom Bästa Monter utnämnt av oss..
Och jag vill gärna tro att dom blev så glada över den bemärkelsen och såg det som en morot.. För att året därefter VERKLIGEN imponera..
Enda nackdelen med denna imponerande monter är.. Att dom har satt sin egna ribba Höööögt inför Elmia 2013 😉
För er som inte var där.. Eller vill minnas tillbaka.. Eller bara njuta av vackra bilar.
Här är vår Feature på oijoij´s Monter ELmia 2012
Missa inte heller vår intervju med monters dragplåster(?) eller ja.. Eisenhut, Ägaren till denna numera välkända Honda som vi har uppmärksammat mycket genom åren.

Yeah yeah det må vara ett gammalt klipp.. Men en AE86 blir aldrig gammal.. Och nu värmer vi upp inför Elmia 2013!
Corolla eller AE86?
Japans Volvo 240?
Sushi eller Tofu?
Vad är Tofu?
Är farsan en alkis eller inte?
Den tecknade serien eller filmen?
Vad svarar ni?

En av Sveriges utan tvekan topp-driftare är Daniel ”Limmet DrifTeam” Liimatainen som denna säsong siktar mot ännu högre höjder med sitt nya BMW 1-serie bygge.
För att vara en extremt ung sport i Sverige, så skapade sig han otroligt många fans på kort tid när de smiskade en BMW E30 med kompressormatad M5 E39 V8.
Samma motor hamnar även i nya projektet, och det har alla förutsättningar att bli ”bilen att slå” denna säsong 2012.
I denna intervju tar allt från Daniels egna bakgrund och hur han snubblade in i driftingen, samt målsättnignar för denna säsong- blandat med kul inslag om att:
*Idén till nya projektet som föddes en seeen midsommardag.
*Hur han alltid sneglat mot Japs trots att han är en stor BMW-profil.
*Hur jakten på sponsorer äntligen blivit lättare.

Swedish premier track/raceway MANTORP PARK had a really sharp display this year, throwing a bit of everything into the mix to show people they were down; but now are far from out.
Because if you didn’t know yet, our countries most recognized and always ”first that comes to mind” when it comes to either dragracing, track days and festivals- went bankrupt this winter.
This is on paper a perfect fit, since many of the big events like Gatebil Sweden, Action Meet and more have been organized by said organization for many years.
It was only logical then, and we hope they will bring new life not just to the track itself; but give the whole scene a vital injection…
Judging by the cars they had handpicked for their stall, they have the right feeling on whats hot right now. Johan ”Hollywood” Halvarsson and his Kermit green S15 2JZ-GTE drift car was a bit early from its livery of the season.
So we give you the pleasure of his recently released promo-video to show you how it looks right now, the man with the manly mustache will surely head into the season as someone that can snatch a Top 5 finish in any event he participates in…
Two really sharp E30 BMW’s also proudly took a lot of space in the stall, where one of them belongs to a very likable guy named Rickard Ivars.
His builds on various ”Bimmer-chassises” have always resulted in the same thing; dreadfully fast in the 1/4mile!
This might have the look of an ordinary tuned car, but under there lurks 1020 RWHP ready to thunder down the quarter mile in under 9 seconds…!
Rouding things off was this amazing US-build, with a properly sized Supercharger not too violently hidden…
Hats off to the organizers, and RANI (CLICK FOR HIS FB FANPAGE!) did an awesome job shooting it.
We have been more then pleased with what we’ve produced from ELMIA 2012 EXPO in the photography aspect of covering it. Wouldn’t mind feedback from our readers about what you think?
We are doing some big changes in the near time here at Superior, so we hope you keep an eye out on OUR FACEBOOK for ”small nuggets” being released and hints of whats to come as well.
Sadly, we might be in for some sacrifices to make; but always for the great good. Hope for your continued support and enthusiasm!

Nu tar vi ett snack med en av våra mest långvariga vänner i branschen.
Ända sedan hans fantastiska Mazda RX-7 bygge ”Zlayer” gjorde på ett objekt levererat av Gzon; så har proffset inom svenska styling-scenen Lukas Koos haft vårat stöd.
På BILSPORT PERFORMANCE AND CUSTOM MOTORSHOW 2012 kom han med ett ”nytt” bygge, eller närmare sagt en total ”make-over” av hans Nissan 350Z ”Zuperior”- som numera lägger till ”Reloaded” i sitt artistnamn!
Det är alltid kul att prata med Lukas, då han väldigt sällan stelnar till framför kameran och går in ett ”bästa artiga svar” läge så fort det är en kamera som filmar.
Han är sig själv i alla lägen helt enkelt!
Värt att understryka ett par punkter som nämns i videon, att det är en fruktansvärt ödmjuk kille med grym självdistans- trots att många med betydligt mindre framgångar på styling-scenen lider av hybris:
Däremot är språket i de otaliga extrema bilar han slutfört något som… gärna tar för sig av ögonen, och därför fått två läger i om man älskar/hatar dom.
Klart är däremot att en bilbyggare som lagt ner över 5000 timmar utan lön, sponsorers vara eller icke vara; skall ha respekt av andra entusiaster.
(Därmed ännu en gång osagt om man gillar stilen eller ej, vilket vi gärna ser er diskutera genom att kommentera nedan eller på VÅRAN FACEBOOK!) 😉

Today we bring you more in the aftermath of the ELMIA 2012 EXPO which we are far from done with.
We at Superior are proud to say that quality over quantity is something we are able to live up to on many occasions, and this some Stance/Lifestyle community OIJ OIJ SOCIETY truly made our job easy to maintain that principle.
They had two head and shoulders above the best stand (ever?) at the expo, and can be very proud of themselves for the result.
Something worth to also credit, is that the organizers of the expo = BILSPORT MAGAZINE finally gave a growing trend a shot at glory and look what happened:
We hope this is a breakthrough, and they will continue to hand out confidence in creative & driven groups to create stand-out things like these on Scandinavias by far biggest and most historic auto expo!
Therefor, instead of leading you by clichés and explaining things that are obvious looking at the pics- we simple present you the gallery and let you enjoy it:
If you think this is what we should devote our energy from, and you also feel the pics by RANI GILIANA AUTOMOTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY excels- don’t be shy to comment below about it!

When a guy has over 30 car builds in his trunk, ranging from every kind of car culture possible- you know something epic will happen more often then not every time a new project is started by that very same person.
Anyway, this year he did so well that he is without further ado, our Superior choice of ELMIA 2012 EXPO with this ”bastard” Toyota KE70:
Its hard to know where to start trying to describe this old school beast that is more stuffed with different trends then you can probably count. The easiest way to brand it is… fun!
”DubRolle” said plenty of memorable things when we interviewed him about it, and on top of the list a quote like ”I was hoping to build more of it in carbon/kevlar, so it would be easy for tire explosions that ripped through the bodywork”. And the big bits of this precious (and very strong) material is definitely a good starting point to talk about:
Its something thats usually found on hardcore race cars, and the same can be said about the 36 metres of material roll cage that ”Rolle” has custom built = its not built to just shock and impress fanboys– its built to be used as well:
We were already from our first meeting trying to persuade him to hit up either a TIME ATTACK EVENT or possible one of the Swedish drift meets to prove his point. And I don’t think he was kidding when he said he would definitely do it.
One of the keys for it to finally run properly and without being scared of wrecking it; was the engine. Which also deserves a bit of extra attention as its not what you’d expect from such a hardcore JDM build:
”Is it a 1JZ-GTE?” or maybe something cool and odd like a turbo converted old AE90 engine to keep things strictly JDM… But you will be disappointed if you are a purist.
In fact, its one of the most common engines you can find on Swedish road, a 5 cylinder Turbo from a Volvo V70R!
Its been a bit modified with a larger turbine, better camshaft and general ”boost up” modifications. But talks are leading towards a more serious 450HP engine build which most skilled Swedes can do in their sleep with this trusted platform…
If you are not obsessed with these details, you will forgive the ”non-JDM” engine and look closer at everything else that will make even the most diehard fundamentalist twitch. Such as the front lights, exclusive for the Japanese Domestic Market.
Rolle kept his crosshair to the far east, and even incorporated some mainstream yet still not entirely cleared significant details such as the ”Idlers” markings on the tires:
They truly earn their place as the founding father of Rauh Welt, ”Nakai-San” would probably gladly accept ”Rolle” into the club circuit freaks in his clientele are a part of (Idlers).
The Compomotive wheels also do their best testing the eye of the beholder if they are old and plain or just fit the build perfectly.
To sum this up and end things with a bit of a motivation to why this ”Cocktail of car culture” freak of a build caught our eye and also persuaded our photographers RANI GILIANA and MARTIN PERSSON– I think all you need to do is re-read the text and understand there is (once again) not an advance reason.
We just… like our stuff mixed! Like people using their imagination, well beyond the ”set rules” some far more boring car builders waste yours and our time with!
A huge congratulations to Roland ”DubRolle” Zetterström for such an impressive build, and a highly fitted choice as a genuine car builder + enthusiast that can take the title Christoffer Geiros Audi A4 took last year with pride.

To visit the BILSPORT PERFORMANCE AND CUSTOM MOTOR SHOW means you will get a sample of every possible dish out there within automotive culture. ELMIA 2012 was no exception, and we’ve had some big surprises on our TEN OF THE BEST list thats reaching its end quickly now.
This is ”The Juxtapod” and is as much a piece of art as it is a Hot Rod build. In fact, when you browse through the creators HOMEPAGE (CLICK!) you get a feeling its more of the first then latter.
Besides a color that literally sucks you into watching it like the beautiful White Queen from Alice in Wonderland does; it also presents the unique (?) combination of handmade crystal to car building:
I think the definition of artwork and machine is once again more defined towards the first, as it would hurt my aesthetic heart to ever see the engine started up and let these crystal velocity stacks get dirty.
Besides the use of that we also see warm tones of wood coming back reccuringly, everything done at almost ridiculous finish:
We have to be honest and confess Hot Rods as this one is way out of our comfort zone, but our research tells us this is a beautiful bastard of different decades in automotive- with a bit heavier influence from the 60’s.
The chassis itself would be fair to say is a Ford Model AA 1928, and the thing that (was supposed) runs this is a Chevy 348 engine and 350 Gearbox.
Mattias LeBeef Andersson as the builder is exotically named, has together with Ludvif Löfgren built something truly unique; that no cliché can honestly explain.
Hit us up at OUR FACEBOOK where we will release some teasing shots of the top ranked build from the expo. You won’t regret it!

First things first. We are reaching the end of our TEN OF THE BEST list from the BILSPORT ELMIA 2012 EXPO, and we need to thank the two guys who have provided all the cutting edge pics for the series once again.
Simple enough ey?
Whats not as simple to give a thorough review, is Albin Asks Honda S2000. But here we go to try and give it some justice in a few pictures and text:
This car was standing with the guys representing CLUB-JDM SWEDEN in the A-hall, and I feel embarrassed to admit I only gave it a few quick looks while rushing to the bathroom nearby a few times at the beginning of the weekend.
Fortunately though, both Rani and Martin catched it very early, and had plenty of time to shoot these a tad bit mysterious but delicious pics to let me know I had to take a closer look:
During the round-up of all the awesome cars we’ve had, this car went from a sleeper on the list; to crashing into the Top 3 in the end- much to the merit of how photogenic it was.
You can’t deny that even if you are not a big fan of chocolate brown metallic paint its still one hell of a grateful color to photograph!
Something that also makes it stand out once you admire these pics, is the bodywork. Albin explained during an interview (will be posted later tonight) that when he got the car, it looked like ”the fenders had gotten widened using a steel pipe” or something.
Now, after he went through them personally and added custom over fenders, its a whole different story:
Combining that with flawless and perfect stance on those wheels, we got ourselves the winner that deserves to be placed this high on this list.
But there is more. Authentic JDM-parts tend to give you a certain swagger that no replica parts can do:
The Powerhouse Amuse front bumper is one thing, hiding that big Intercooler quite casually; because this car is not afraid to admit its boosted.
Under the bonnet we find a full turbo-conversion with a Garrett 30/71R turbine that is capable of feeding air well above 400+HP!
Albin told us that soon after the expo, the mapping will be done and it will definitely have more then enough power to embarrass most cars not only in style- but in performance as well.
(I know those seats have most of you already hooked!)
The runner-up and ”Superior choice” of the entire expo will be up soon, we are thrilled to finally show you who we picked…!
19 april 2012, 20:28
The TEN OF THE BEST series is a classic ”Top 10” list, but without formal rules. I state this, because this pick might surprise most of you car enthusiasts out there. #4 is all about subtleness.
Owner Markus Karlsson has had a history of sweet BMW builds before, and now he puts his paws on a pretty much brand new base in a BMW 5-series F10:
The fact he started on something as new as this is very uncommon in Sweden. We see it all the time in the big US of A, where its basically a big ”bragging race” to do a ”tune” of a as new car/model as possible. Not so much here.
While again its no guideline for us either, the SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHERS Rani Giliana and Martin Persson got very attached by the above fact. Maybe its because they were among the lucky who saw a ”real” BMW M5 F10 when they covered THE FRANKFURT IAA 2011…?
The resemblance to the Münich top-model is impossible to miss, and a pack of ”M-sports” parts make this car what it is- not to mention the 21″ ADV 1 5 2 TS wheels that crown Markus car:
They are only temporary though, as 22″ Iforged CHA2 beauties are coming. Makes you wonder how us ”mere mortals” and boring people can go on with normal sizes like 18″…?
Again, this car will represent what less is more means and how much tasteful mods can equate to an awesome result as well.
We will happily accept if people think this car is too subtle, at least enjoy the pics and we promise more ”fireworks” in the Top 3- Markus Karlssons BMW is for all those purists out there!
If you want to know more about Markus Karlsson and his previous builds, I advice you to visit his GARAGET PROFILE (CLICK!) where there is more info.

Lost in the mix of ”Superior TV” clips and our ”Ten of the best” list, we bring a mixed gallery outside of what was exclusively posted on OUR FACEBOOK (which you should definitely check out if you haven’t yet!
(Our own little stall which was mostly about having a place where members of the Superior Family had a place to sit and chill, not to mention two cars you should recognize by now…)
(Wild colors and even wilder wide-bodies show cars is the expos bread and butter. Not to everyones liking, but still adds flair to the event.)
(Last year we saw Patrik Ljungs Volvo V70 V8 RWD car donning the Police livery, this year a Evo IX was doing the honors (!? saluting our long arm of the law…)
(The ”B hall” must be our favorite with a direct approach to tuning & performance cars. These two Speedsters renamed ”Badsters” look like they live up to their name any day at the track you want!)
(Peter Björck and his 88mm Turbo rocking it in this shot. Anything else? Oh year, 1200+ RWHP is where its at.)
(Richard Klarbys VW Golf R on Rotiform wheels made #8 on our TEN OF THE BEST LIST from this expo. Well deserved!)
(Like we said, the B hall has a much wider array of the best ”tuning-builds” and even some exotic that belongs to Mercedes styling guru ”Lars K”.)
Hope you enjoyed that, our coverage from this expo which is the definite starter of the season in Scandinavia will continue.

We don’t do fancy and ”hipstermatic” intros for our SUPERIOR SELECTED ”Ten of the best” lists, we just friggin do them.
But for this car there could be an endless amount of flamboyant intros and explanations for why we included it as one of our favorite cars on ELMIA 2012 EXPO. But…
Lets just say there were 250 reasons to pick this car over a bunch of other really fantastic builds:
Yes! That is 250kg of Marshmallows ”dressing up” the car on the ground! And as you can imagine, the owner Jani Lemberg having quite a few ”WTF’s” when he placed the order for all that candy.
But never mind that, as gimmicks is not what sold us in on this car. So what did, its as far from a rough drift or Time Attack car you can come- and lacks all the ultra-modern cool of something from the Hellaflush scene.
The simple reason this joker is on our list is photogenic ability and natural charisma!
I can’t give any scientific explanation much as I can’t deliver more of the hip clichés, but I will say that if this car does not make you smile- you need to check if you have warm blood flowing through your heart- or maybe you need to find where it was you lost that childish enthusiasm along the way of becoming a stiff grown-up!
Our two SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHERS guilty for these yummy pics had nothing different to say then the above to why they ranked this odd Nissan so high in the rankings.
”Simply damn cool” said RANI GILIANA, and collaborating support photographer MARTIN PERSSON had a sick grin on his face as he said ”this is the joker of the bunch” when presenting me their picks. Fair enough!
We wish we could tell you more about the builder of this car, from the short research done online its hard to get a grasp of earlier builds etc. It is equally flattering as it is puzzling when in all honesty, a 14 year old girl could have done the outlining of this project?!
We appreciate the tender break from everything serious though, and hope you enjoy this car as well.
As you may have noticed if you have followed the TEN OF THE BEST list so far, the number of photos just increased; and will continue to do so for the next four entrants.
16 april 2012, 20:23
Speciellt inte när man dessutom ger sig på att få den likna en av de mest exklusiva och råaste modeller märket i sig har att erbjuda?
Micke_J och Sir_Pierre tog en närmare titt på en Mercedes SL som fått full ombyggnad så den liknar en ”Black series”.
Merca-experten Pierre ger oavkortat raka puckar om vad som skiljer mot den äkta, och vi slänger även med ett par subjektiva åsikter om bygget som höll väldigt hög finish!
Vi hoppas på mera feedback på alla Superior-TV klipp, ni får mer än gärna ge kritik bra som negativ på bl.a. VÅRAN FACEBOOK. 🙂

Want to pick one enthusiast and his build to represent what the Swedish Hellaflush scene is with one swipe?
Look no further then Marcus Eisenhuts Honda Integra that for this season is nearing full marks in all areas within this culture of car tuning.
He was already leading the pack of US-trends here in Sweden, and has for this season put extra effort into the engine bay especially- so it was definitely the thing to focus on for our SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHERS shooting this ”Ten of the best” series from the ELMIA 2012 EXPO:
The car itself is mildly improved from last season, but we don’t consider that since its officially out in this expo representing how far along the ”Stance-scene” has come in just ~365 full days from last years expo.
Our two ace photographers RANI GILIANA and MARTIN PERSSON doing this series exclusively, seem to enjoy shooting this car- and its easy to get satisfying results with some privacy and extra flashes on it:
We also had time to let our Superior-TV co-host SIR PIERRE do a short interview with the man himself, explaining that it seems like things are going pretty well for the ”Stance scene” when even the countries biggest expo dares to invest in it.
Marcus car was just one of many very impressive ”Stance builds” and we shot a big feature of it that displayed what an awesome presence the OIJ OIJ SOCIETY guys had- by far the best stall of the ELMIA 2012 EXPO!
We appreciate any feedback!

Två förvirrade programledare begav sig in till personliga vänner till Micke_J attitudemotorclub.com montern.
Denna kristna motorklubb har länge försett folk i A-hallen med kaffe, och detta år tänkte vi dyka in för att reda ut begreppen.
Från att hankat oss fram lite osäkert så slutade intervjun tillslut med ett par intressanta och lättsamma diskussioner. Är ”monterbrudar” på framtida agendan? Vilken bil skulle Jesus köra, eller en radikal muslim…?
Klart är iaf. att oavsett om du är kristen eller inte, så är attitudemotorclub.com en klubb för bilentusiaster som söker en gemenskap utöver det vanliga.
Superior ger tusen tack för alla koppar kaffe under helgen! Besök deras HEMSIDA och ta en titt!

This years PERFORMANCE AND CUSTOM MOTORSHOW celebrated esteemed automotive magazine BILSPORT 50 year anniversary. For that occasion they had an entire hall dedicated to different cars that had been published over the years, and this Mopar beast was what attracted our SUPERIOR SELECTED Photographers the most: This is Peter Holmerts Dodge Challenger that has gone the full ”Pro Mod” route, meaning it has a much more modern engine, drivetrain and interior. Say what you want about old US-muscle builds, but its very hard to argue a build like this hitting our list. Its just something that makes the current re-released Challenger quite ugly looking… We’d like to thank BILSPORT for giving us
the opportunity of providing you this series and many other things from the expo, and in the same sentence mention Johan Eriksson who writes for them- and show our appreciation for their continuous support. ”Like” this? Go to OUR FACEBOOK and if its not too much trouble, take a look at RANI AUTOMOTIVE and BILBILDER.SE if these kind of quality pics turn you on as much as us!

I Ett av de mer lättsamma klippen på Performance and Custom Motorshow 2012 som Superior-TV besökte under Påskhelgen; så träffade vi ”Streetrace-gänget” Team Quest Racing (www.tqr.se).
Deras tema för året var militärt, och en handfull leksaker för vuxna hormonstinna amerikaner (!) samt galna ryssar prydde montern:
Micke_J och Sir_Pierre skämdes som ni ser inte för sig, utan bad om en liten demo och resultatet är en unken crossover till populära Youtube-fenomenet ”FPS Russia”!
Lämna gärna kommentarer och rätta oss om ev. faktafel, vi tar ingen hänsyn till sådana och givetvis är klippet gjort med XXL ”glimten i ögat”! 😉

Most of the builds on our SUPERIOR SELECTED ”Ten of the best” list have one thing in common: Build quality, and that they all seem planned out.
Richard Klarby is already considered to be one of Swedens best car painters. His work on Cim Nilssons Toyota Supra in matte orange was a big crowd pleaser last year. So now he decided to trumf it with his VW Golf R:
This Ferrari silver painted beauty rests comfortable on Rotiform wheels and just gives you that feeling that time stands still when you observe the car, trying to find something which is not done to perfection.
Our two SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHERS fancy work with the extra flashes comes at a climax here, capturing the shade of the paint to a 100%:
Rumors have it that Richard has now sold his business, but we can’t expect such a talented guy to stand in one place for too long. This Golf has been rebuilt several times, so maybe its time for a change and new project.
12 april 2012, 15:43
The ”Ten of the best” list from the PERFORMANCE AND CUSTOM MOTORSHOW 2012 goes on, and today we have a damn outright charming car that our SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHERS got stuck on, a 1932 year Ford 5-window Coupé with a matching caravan!
Our two boys with immense photo skills, Rani ”RANISFOTO.SE” Giliana with support by Martin ”BILBILDER.SE” Persson picked this as a bit of a surprise from the rest of the bunch, but the color, genuine look and as usual with US-custom builds finish of the car; made it qualify on the list:
We admit this is a step outside our own comfort zone, and encourage our readers to educate us more on what it really is we are looking at.
All we can say is, that as already mentioned; the amount of hours and meticulous work the US-customs car builders put in their projects is second to none. Needless to say, the bright yellow flawless paint wins us over anyway…
If you know the owner of the car, don’t be shy to place comments below.
Don’t forget to VISIT OUR FACEBOOK where more news on the best from the expo will pass through, the same applies to RANIS and MARTINS own Facebook pages where you are more then welcome to become a fan and leave feedback!
