But they also evoke a big, badass, old-school retro look made famous by Porsches and turbo BMWs from IMSA GT and FIA Group 5, huge-winged Skylines in Japan’s Super Silhouette series (complete with gold BBS logos and etched mesh patterns) or even the menacing coal-black discs on the Lancia Delta S4.
