Vogue Industries - The Automotive Funhouse!

Our friendships and history date back to early Autosalon days (If anyone can remember those events) when people used to go crazy with car builds. I have known the head guys over at Vogue Industries for over 10 years, and at their shop opening, they definitely wowed the local automotive industry. They had KatoSan himself of LB Performance there and it was undoubtedly one of Brisbane’s biggest car events of the decade.

The shop itself is styled in a way that there is something for all ages, from toy cars to an actual office desk made from LB performance Lamborghini Aventador parts. If you could imagine having an unlimited wishes genie lamp for all the cool things you wanted when you were a kid, Vogue has delivered. If you live in Brisbane and are into cars this place is really something impressive that you need to check out.

The most amazing thing we found about this Australian shop is their view and style of building cars, previously they were renowned for building exotics with Justin’s extensive collection of heavily modified Lamborghini’s and Ferrari’s, they have now found their niche in building off-road weekend monsters with daily capabilities. In our opinion In Queensland especially, the focus of aftermarket modifications has taken an amazing direction with so many drivable adventure roads and beaches a stone throws away.

Long explains to us that the market is wanting more than just “Dad Spec” offroaders, they want them looking like Baja ready trophy truck’s for the streets. This is where Vogue Industries really shines, in imagining, designing, and then building your dream car to life.

Timeless - The Story of Matt and his Ferrari's.

Timeless - The Story of Matt and his Ferrari's.

The Story of a man and a passion for Ferrari's

I first met Matt about 5 years ago at a lunch that I was extended an invitation to with the Lamborghini Group in Brisbane.

Obviously we became friends shortly after due to our passion for all types of cars including classics, all of a sudden my attention was drawn to a classic Ferrari 328 GTB that passed by us on James street in Newstead. He noticed my appreciation for it when he glanced over and quietly responded with wow, Ferrari 328! Dan, I happen to have one of those with a smile on his face. I guess you would say that this is the moment is where our discussions of the Ferrari brand began. 

I would say Matt is a very humble and kind person, it is no surprise to me that his personal drive has led him to own this amazing collection. I would like to personally Thank Matt for the insight into his Garage and sharing his passion with PlateGamers.

Name: Matt Latimore
Age: 48
Profession: Steelmaking raw materials marketing, trading and investment, mining.

Question 1. At what age did your love of cars begin?

Answer: At 15 years of age when we had an Italian exchange student come to stay at our house for a year. He was from Modena, the home of Ferrari – he bought a poster of F40 and a Ferrari singlet and cap (which I still own)

Question 2. What is your favourite automotive manufacture and why?

A: Ferrari. Great history with racing and car manufacturing. There are plenty of good people around them with a passion for the brand. Everyone within Ferrari is working and involved within the brand success, this is what makes it such a great company. 

Question 3. Out of all the cars you have ever owned, what was your most memorable and why?

A: I would have to say it is the Ferrari 458 Speciale. Nothing compares to the emotion and driving experience from this car so far. It is the last of the naturally aspired V8 Ferrari's ever made and makes the perfect mix of noise, fizz with matching speed, and handling. An amazing car to drive.

Question 4. What is your most memorable automotive moment?

A: The Ferrari F40 on track – while it looks fantastic you only really get an appreciation for the car when in its natural home, on the track shifting between 2nd and 3rd gear.

Question 5. What is your most prized current vehicle and why?

A: Owning the last car Enzo Ferrari signed off on, the Ferrari F40 is very memorable, as is his tribute car the Enzo Ferrari itself.

Question 6. Dream Vehicle if you don’t already own it.

A: I would say I have to divide this answer into three categories. 
Vintage - Ferrari 250 California Spider. V12 open-top classic car. 
Modern vintage - Ferrari 288 GTO, gated shift drivers car and
Modern - The Ferrari Laferrari Aperta.

Question 7. The inspirational quote you live by:

A: You only get out of anything of what you put into it. There is no substitute for hard work and having a passion for what you are doing makes is essential.

Special mentions or people you would like to thank:

I owe everything in my life to my parent's dedication to me as a child growing up in a small country town.
