VIS Racing Sports, Inc. has been at the forefront of automotive restyling since 1996. They started the ultra-aggressive style in body kits for sport compact cars in Southern California. The trend quickly spread from the West Coast to East Coast. In a matter of a few years, their styles were found in many parts of the globe. This trend culminated with the release of the movie, "Fast and Furious" (2001), in which they were one of the sponsors. They were not content with the status quo and continued to bring new products to the restyling scenes. Their carbon fiber hoods and trunks are the de facto standard "Grade A" against which other competitors in the world are measured. Their carbon fiber products are number one in the industry, and their popularity can be seen on the streets as well as car shows alike. VIS Racing Sports is also making inroads into the Japanese market with the help of their partner in Japan. Their products can be seen in Japanese magazines, such as Auto Fashion and Options magazines.
