Adreach the outdoor media company which operates more than 40 000 sites across South Africa, is a partner sponsor of the Rogue Rally. Rogue Rally is a Gumball-style supercar road trip that covers more than 2200 kms and includes special stages. The event is designed to give the owners of supercars the opportunity to use their cars as the designers intended.
“For us the association with supercars is a natural one as we manage so much roadside real estate,” says Brad Fisher, CEO of Adreach. Fisher goes on to say that it was however the public participation and exposure that clinched the deal. “The Rogue Rally will be very accessible to the general public with open track days, exclusive parties, street processions, closed street circuits and special events,” said Fisher.

Vilner’s Nissan GT-R is definitely a very unique project. This is not only because of the exquisite work and craftsmanship of the Vilner team but also because of the “starry sky” ceiling that it includes. Few other cars have the same feature, and is in fact the fist car in tuning history to include anything like it.
The materials used in the interior are the finest leather and Alcantara in black and crimson colours. The dominant black seats include red bands on the borders. Another accent that catches the eye is the red stitching creating rhomboid forms.
