Continuing our previous article dedicated to a small privately owned European car collection from Bangkok, Thailand, we’re taking an in-depth look at the 1993 VW Vento/Jetta MK3 owned and modified by Chet Sriprawatkun.
Being a long-term fan of European sports cars of the 90s, he’s always had a soft spot for Volkswagens, and formed his own vision of a perfect Golf/Jetta/Vento MK3 build. As soon as he managed to find a proper example for his project, the modification process began.
Being a sophisticated car guy and a creative mind, he’s always looking for something different and doesn’t mind it to be challenging, so no compromises on parts selection were made while putting the car together. Like many of us, the main things that he was focused on were the clean look and low stance.
The car is powered by Volkswagen’s famous VR6 engine mated to 5-speed manual transmission. It was painted in dark olive drab green color which looks perfectly well on this MK3.
Continuing the exterior theme you can notice a Golf MK3 front end conversion with Morette Headlights, Mattig headlight eyebrows and Kamei sport grille. Down below is the NKB power front half spoiler.
Despite the radically low stance, this custom VW build is static and sits on ST performance suspension and a set of staggered custom spec OZ Pegasus wheels sized 17×8 up front and 17×9 on the back. Two tone rims with gold center-pieces and polished lips look particularly well in combination with the exterior color of the car.
Inside you’ll notice the stylish Wolfsburg MK1 streering wheel, genuine Bon Jovi shift knob and pair of Reacro A8 sport seats.
