So you like cleaning your car on the weekends? Do you use two buckets? That’s cute — these lads just completed a 138-hour detail. Four professional, efficient detailers taking 138 hours as a team to complete the task.

Why, you ask? Larry Kosilla, Kevin Brown, Dan Miele, and Joseph Torbati detailed this 1997 McLaren F1 GT-R LT for the Quail Concours on August 19 in California, and even managed to win the Spirit of the Quail award, which is awarded to the vehicle that best represents the true spirit of motoring.

If you’re keen to see the folk hard at work, then check it out. This is an incredible channel to follow if you’re into detailing. 

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
