Trend Spotting With Kim Kardashian: Whip Appeal
I recently went shopping for a new whip with my friend Adrienne Bailon and thought I would share my obsession with cars!
My friends at Platinum Motorsport pimped out both of those cars for me. I spoke to them about current car trends and here’s what they had to say…
KIM: What are the most popular luxury cars right now? What are your celebrity clients requesting the most?
PM: Here’s the breakdown of the most popular…
- Coupe/convertible: Bentley GT, Bentley GTC, Maserati Grand Tourismo
- Sedan: MERCEDES S-550, BENTLEY FLYING SPUR
- SUV: Range Rover HSE, Range Rover Sport, Mercedes G-Wagon
KIM: What are the latest trends in cars you are seeing?
PM: Flat matt black is an original way to make a car stand out without being too flashy. Agetro Wheels make the hottest rims right now. Period. As for the interior of the car, we’re seeing a lot of basket-weave headliners, which go on the inside roof. Alcantara’s two-tone headliner is pretty hot right now. Also, we’re placing a lot of orders for diamond-shaped stitching on seats and headliners. Clients are also digging painting the roofs of their cars shiny black, but painting trunks and hoods flat black.
KIM: If someone is on a tight budget, what is the best way to pimp out your car?
PM: You can paint most of the factory parts on your car—such as rims, moldings, and bumpers—to color-match the car. You also opt to make those factory parts shiny or flat black.
