It was indeed triple celebration for Kiran Fonohema at the Fiji Car Club-organised Penrite Car Show held the past Saturday.

Not only was she the only female entrant in the car show, but her vehicle was one of the major crowd-pullers at the event.

Ms Fonohema owns a 2003 model Subaru Impreza STI – a RA Prodrive edition. The vehicle is commonly known with its registration – ATITUD

Her vehicle won her three awards during the event, and these were Best Engine Bay, Best Sound Setup, Best Kept Car (Female).

Ms Fonohema is a director in her husband, Navneel Sharma’s companies: “Best On Enterprise” and “Attitude Performance and Fitness”.

About the win, Ms Fonohema, said: “It was a shocking achievement as we were only 60 per cent prepared for the car show.

“Thanks to Penrite (Global Warehouse) and Fiji Car Club for recognising our hard work.

“We are now looking forward to the next car show and hoping to set a record in Fiji’s car show history.”

In terms of amount invested, Ms Fonohema, said she has not calculated the amount spent on the car.

“But yes, it has taken up a lot to complete my hobby and the way the vehicle is at the moment,” she said.

 

Modifications

The unique part about her ride is there are only three units in Fiji of this model.

“It’s worldwide recognised and highly valued. It gives an exclusive feeling compared to an ordinary family car,” she said.

The upgrades include a chipped ECU, front mount inter-cooler, after market full body kit, after market headers with complete exhaust X-force piping and NOS.

The vehicle also has 18 inches rota grid wheels, complete RA Body vinyl oil catch can ETC, complete Alpine system with rock force gate woofer.

“And yes, it has loads of cosmetic upgrades which will be too much to list,” Ms Fonohema said.
