Much like 85% of the world, we here at ESM are big fans of cooking shows.

And for those of you who are familiar with cooking shows (more specifically cooking competitions), you know some of the best chefs like to prepare the same main ingredient in different ways to show their culinary prowess.

Today, we’re parlaying the same concept for cars in our latest installment of RUN DPE – where we present you with two different preparations for the same car: the Nissan R35 GT-R.

The Art Car

Our first preparation is a very uniquely wrapped GT-R with DPE’s Signature Series S20 Step Lip.

For our second preparation, we have a beautiful blue Liberty Walk R35 GT-R with outrageous looks (but very tastefully done) by our friends over at Car Porn Racing.
