ONE-OF-A-KIND CHEVROLET SPARK TO BE UNVEILED AT SEMA SHOW 2012
Project car gets Enemy To Fashion brand makeover as modern tactical vehicle with vintage military styling.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (October 25th, 2012) — The Chevrolet Spark is getting a one-of-a-kind Enemy To Fashion makeover that will be revealed October 30th at SEMA Show 2012 in Las Vegas. Taking inspiration from vintage Army surplus colors and materials, Enemy To Fashion (enemytofashion.com) is literally re-skinning the exterior and the interior of the Spark with a modern take on a classic rugged look.
“It screams post-apocalyptic Cannonball Run,” said Weapon Collective Creative Director Caleb Clark, who started the Enemy To Fashion brand in 2005. “It’s not what you would expect to see from a Chevy Spark, but the car really wears it well.”
While the look may be jaw-dropping, what really sets this project car apart is the functionality that is integrated into the design and materials. Utilizing vintage, battle-used Army surplus materials and military-grade technical fabrics to reconstruct the inside of the Spark, Enemy To Fashion has paid as much attention to the tactical experience as it has to the design aesthetic.
The end result is a Chevy Spark that will feel right at home in an urban jungle or in the open terrain.
Specialty fabrication specialist Bill Rhine and team at RHINE BUILT are handling all custom fabrication, drawing upon their vast experience in vintage race car preparation and concours quality restorations.
