Twincustom introduces customised luxury cars in Lagos



Luxury car customisation and retailing company, Twincustom Nigeria Ltd has unveiled a range of customised bespoke car models in Lagos, Nigeria.
The cars, remade by hand to suit the high automotive tastes of targeted users by the indigenous customiser and auto shop, were presented as Vintage Modern Bespoke Vehicles (VMBV) at the event

The three models, namely CX 5, CX 6 and CX 7, fondly known by their collective alias Africa’s Rolls-Royce, were customised and richly equipped with an impressive range of modern luxury features by the Ibadan-based Twincustom.

Addressing the special guests at the launch held in Lagos, Managing Director/CEO, Twincustom Nigeria Ltd, Twinkle James Oruwariye, said the CX series took his company six years of hard work to finish, stressing that most of the top-quality materials were sourced locally.

Oruwariye explained: “The CX series project took six years to accomplish. The first three years were dedicated to research and development of the project and the last three years were used to produce what you are seeing here today.”

The event which was witnessed by high-profile car enthusiasts, including a real estate investor, Dennis Nwokedi; Dr. Bayo Kuku of EKO Hospital; and Honorary Australian Counsel, Alan Davies, drew attention to the vast local input in the cars and the ingenuity of Oruwariye and the Twincustom technical team.

The unveiling process was kicked off when the representative of the Lagos State Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mrs. Temitope Akintunde, lifted the cover off the theme of the event which was: Boosting Local Content in the Nigerian Automobile Industry.

Oruwariye whose Twincustom has been in the business of making head-turning shapes out of models out of luxury cars since 1986, disclosed that unlike many years ago when his company accepted customisation jobs from customers who came with cars of various brands and models, the focus now is on customising original Volvo XC90 models (between 2004-2013) which Twincustom imports directly from the USA.

It is after being meticulously customised by hand, according to Oruwariye, that the cars are sold to those who appreciate top quality features in luxury cars.

One of the highpoints of the event was the unveiling of the Automated Ventilation Control System (AVCS), which is currently undergoing the process of International Patent.

AVCS was introduced to the guests at the launch by the Chairman of Sterling Bank PLC and founder of Banwo & Ighodalo law firm, Asue Ighodalo.

Designed and developed by Twincustom research and development department headed by the CEO himself, the AVCS helps to protect passengers from getting cancer from their vehicles.

Twincustom made a debut decades ago with the wave-making Twintana Z1 redesigned and modified version of the then popular Volkswagen Santana assembled then by Volkswagen Nigeria, Ojo, Lagos.

So attention-grabbing was Twintana that it was not only a traffic-jamner, it earned the approval of the VW plant in Lagos, and boosted the popularity of the sleek Santana model.
