Owner:
John Butiu

Location: Hawthorne, California

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Coupe

Car Club: R-Rydes

Horsepower: 280

John Butiu went to school at the Art Center College of Design, majoring in Transportation Design / Car Design, which is what got him interested in cars. What attracted John to the car was the clean design and flowing lines of the Infiniti G35 coupe, which will be a classic design. He has been keeping his eye on the G35 coupe (aka Skyline 350GT in Japan) since its creation in 2003 and bought one in 2005. The exterior, interior, and engine are very well put together and very tuner friendly, with hundreds of aftermarket parts to choose from.
