Love it or hate it, you can expect to see this thoroughly-customized, 2011 Chevrolet Cruze at the annual SEMA Show this year as Chantal Ballo, the car’s owner, has entered it into the classic Battle of the Builders competition.
With a host of modifications including a diamond-finish red wrap by Avery Dennison of Sylvania, Ohio, and an air bag suspension with an Air Ride management system, this Cruze certainly qualifies as a show car. It boasts an aftermarket body kit, and rides on 18-inch SSR Vienna Kreis rims with red wheel discs (to match the wrap). It also features a customized interior with red suede headliners and custom red seat upholstery. Most unusual of all, the trunk sports a red wood flooring insert.
While some might find this build distasteful simply because it’s a Cruze, we like the change of pace. Sure, we love a V12 Camaro as much as the next guy, but it’s nice to see something different. Watch the video for yourself, and hear what Chantal has to say about entering her car in the 2017 Battle of the Builders competition.
