TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - KARMA Bodykit made in Indonesia was exhibited at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show from November 1-5, 2022, at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Paradise Road. In the event, KARMA Bodykit displays its newest product in 2022 labeled KARMA Porsche Cayman 987.2. The latest KARMA body kit is attached to a Porsche Cayman owned by Tyler Cordura.

Founder of KARMA Bodykit Kiki Anugraha said that Tyler Cordura is one of the young figures who fancy car modifications in America that become his reference on trends and styles in modifying his favorite car. "Every modification and his direction has always been an inspiration for young people that enjoy modifying cars back in Indonesia. You can see his posts on Instagram," said Kiki in an official statement, Wednesday, November 23, 2022.

Kiki explained that the Cayman body kit had produced its third production. The first production of the KARMA Cayman 987 body kit was attached to the maroon Porsche Cayman owned by Mochamad Chandra Kurniawan or known as Charock. Charock's Cayman KARMA was first released in 2020.

The KARMA Cayman body kit consists of a front bumper, bumper lips, rear bumper side skirts, fenders, over fenders, and wing spoiler. The aggressive design typical of the KARMA Bodykit also manifests itself through the large air dam and maintains the distinctive curvature at the ends of the bumpers and side skirts, which makes it different from other body kit products. All the functions and performance of this body kit have been carefully considered, including the plug-and-play installation.

KARMA Bodykit is produced from grade A FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Plastics) material. This material was chosen for its flexibility, yet strong and lightweight construction. Combined with a touch of carbon on the car lips, all of which are handmade by domestic human resources.

Kiki added the success story of KARMA Bodykit in America could not be separated from the support of his best friend there, Mike Torino, a blue Toyota 86 FRS owner who is also believed to be a KARMA Bodykit representative in the US.

Kiki and Mike met on the internet via YouTube and Instagram. Initially, Mike saw a post about the KARMA Bodykit Toyota 86 on Kiki's Instagram account. Mike was interested in the appearance of the KARMA Toyota 86 body kit. Since then, their communication continued intensely, leading to the start of a harmonious partnership for marketing KARMA Bodykit in America.

“From the start, Mike supported KARMA. He is indeed a car tuner. His activities are very similar to mine in Jakarta. Mike is like an incarnation of me, a version of me living in the United States," said Kiki.

Until now, said Kiki, the biggest demand for body kits still comes from the Supra and GR 86. Especially for the KARMA GR 86 which has not been distributed, only its twin, the Subaru BRZ. For BRZ, 5 units of KARMA Bodykit have been sold. 

Regarding the KARMA Bodykit market, Kiki explained that his body kit products have now been marketed in 5 countries, namely the USA (east and west area), Canada, England, Australia, and China. The next target would be the Japanese market. "Currently there are 2 prospective partners in Japan who are interested. Our problem is more to the shipping issue," said Kiki.
