AkzoNobel Sikkens Selected by GM Canada for Top Tuner Car

For the third consecutive year, General Motors of Canada selected AkzoNobel Sikkens for its “Top Tuner Car” that was displayed in the General Motors booth at the 2008 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The car, a Cadillac CTS, is a tribute to the tuner culture, which encompasses groups of automotive enthusiasts who enjoy mechanically and/or cosmetically altering modern vehicles to reflect a spirit of individualism, creativity and innovation.

Vicious Red is the custom color developed by AkzoNobel Sikkens for this year’s Top Tuner Car.

“The Tuner Cars are world class pieces of automotive art,” said Tajai Das, CEO and Chairman of ETC Enterprises Inc. and founder of the Top Tuner Program. “A car such as this requires a color and finish that is equal to the uniqueness of the vehicle. We looked to AkzoNobel as the world’s largest supplier of paint and coatings for the solution. The Sikkens brand met the challenge.“
