Arrow SharkWerks' ZKERMIT 3.9L GT3RS on display at RM Auction in Monterey

SharkWerks' green GT3RS is going to be shown at the exotic/classics/ultra-rare, and race cars RM Auction in Monterey this weekend (our car is not for sale at this time ). It will be at the HRE Wheels / Dupont Registry booth from today until Saturday. Alex will be available tonight so if you swing by, be sure to say hello and take a peak at our car.

Here are some teaser pics of the car in the lobby. Sorry about the quality, it's dark in there!


Bob Willis (Auto Concierge, best detailer in the business) polishing her up:


He's the reason the car always looks so good:


Parked next to this Ferrari:

Wow...nice contrast against the red Ferrari's. This should be a good advertising time for your company. Congrats!

Hey fellas had a fun-filled week/weekend during the week-long Exotic car festivals in Monterey. It was really great meeting so many of you and putting a face to a forum screen name finally... Those that I missed - sorry about that and there's always next year

We kicked things off on Wednesday night by driving through the Portola Hotel Lobby with ZKERMIT (guests were checking in at the time) and into the main ball room to display the car with our friends at HRE Wheels (Dave you're awesome btw) and Dupont Registry. Although our car was indeed by far the least expensive (we're talking some highly prized vintage red Ferraris folks) in the ballroom it was at least the only Green car there too




And just to drive into the ball-room the doors had to be taken off...


Still more set up to go...




Final detail/prep by [email protected] (who was kindly present all week to help SharkWerks et al) before the suits get let in for the start of the RM Auction.



There she is all decked out with specs, dyno and business cards. You'll be glad to know that despite many interesting offers this car is a keeper and was NOT for sale:P


A few press photographers were allowed in early... They were trying to get pictures of the unveiling of the (a funky-expensive German supercar) Veritas VS3, which was flown in from Germany the night before.



And we're off... An Alpha 8C was also on display which looked pretty slick...



You can see if the 8C here and the front end of the Veritas:


The VS3


Some very expensive bikes and a Spyker that wouldn't start:


Somebody paid too much for this one..


And here we are at Concourso Italiano the next day working with our friends at Champion Motorsports and Tubi. I was skeptical here being a Porsche-only fiend but again surprised by the Porsche turn-out.... Luckily Mr Tubi (he calls me Mr. Shark) himself brought a lot of Porsche exhausts for display so I had my way with those:


This is the Gallardo LP560 we had at the booth with the sweet-sounding Tubi exhaust on it.


We have a "winner" here... Full Blooded Italian:


Mr Shark wearing full Italian Tubi Style Gear (folks this is their uniform!) and Mr Tubi on the right. Both wearing shades on 3 hours of sleep the night before.


Tubi all over:


Bob giving a demo of the Tubi Exhaust:


Tuner "pose":


Job well done and day over....


Here we are packing the booth away after a long and hot day at Concorso Italiano. I was really happy with the Porsche turnout/invasion considering this show is usually all about Italian trash



But not before I get a shot of perhaps the coolest fully-electric car ever:



Back one more night for the final evening at the RM Auction:


Yours truly suited up...


A very cool/expensive picture behind the car from Ze Germans:


Mr Dupont & Mr. Shark


And because he liked the car so much he wore matching trousers!
