ZR Auto always has projects on the go, and this one in particular is going to turn heads. Zahir recalled a recent visit to Palm Springs, California, and the abundance of uniquely-wrapped vehicles. “The thing is, you never see those in Canada,” he said. “I want to bring that automotive styling up here and really give people that unique look for their cars.” After sending three of his technicians to Germany to properly learn how to install custom wraps on exotic vehicles, ZR Auto ventured into the world of automotive styling. The result? The Matador!
Zahir Rana has contantly been tweaking his prized Heffner Twin-Turbo Gallardo ever since he bought it, and now his one-of-a-kind Lamborghini boasts 1,500hp. Rana was able to share some of the specs for his high-horsepower bull during a recent visit to the ZR showroom and tuning centre.
