Buried deep in heart of Shenzhen City, China, is Auto Kitchen, an exotic performance shop and Vossen Forged dealer. After a long day of shooting at Bruce Lee Paradise park, we arrived to find a Lamborghini Aventador LP-720-4 parked outside Auto Kitchen. Painted in Arancio Argos and fitted with our Vossen Forged VPS-302 wheels, measuring 20×9 and 21×12.5, it was quite the sight to see, and the anticipation for the following day’s shoot began.
The next morning we made our way out of the city as early as the Aventador was allowed, as Auto Kitchen’s location is amidst some residential buildings, and they’re not allowed to start or drive loud cars too early in the morning. With no particular destination or location in mind, we focused on rolling shots first, landing us well outside the city.
After making a U-turn, passing through a toll station, and pulling off on the should to regroup, we decided it would actually make quite the location to shoot, given China’s 15+ lanes of toll stations that merge back down to just a few. So we quickly set up and hammered out some shots as passersby slowed to gaze at the Italian beauty. However, we weren’t as lucky as we thought, because an unhappy toll station employee, outraged by our impromptu fun, cited the cars for blocking traffic, based on the images of us passing through the toll (click here for a screenshot of the post!).
A mere twenty minutes later, with our shoot complete, we were back on the road to Shenzhen City, the chaos of the toll station shoot just a minor bump in the road that we happened to freeze in time on film. As quickly as we arrived at that unforgettable toll plaza we were off again. The deceivingly hot and humid morning was nothing but an orange flash in our memories, highlighted by the stunning Aventador LP-720 on Precision Series VPS-302 wheels, made right here in Miami, on the other side of the world!
