Lap 47: Giving Your Car a New look and Identity

Lap 47

Kochi: A venture launched by a couple of passionate enthusiasts having over 20 years’ experience in the field, ‘Lap 47’ Performance Studio at Nettoor in Kochi delivers the best aftermarket parts for sports compact vehicles. The studio, started by Lal Bharathan and Siraj in 2013, is the exclusive dealer of 37 brands such as BBS, HRE, 3Ddesign and Supersprint.

“All products that ‘Lap47’ delivers are carefully planned and designed using the latest computer simulation and modelling techniques, followed by careful testing in controlled laboratory environments using state-of-the-art equipment. Each product is then subjected to rigorous dyno, street and race track testing to ensure proper performance in the most extreme conditions,” says Lal Bharathan, CEO.

‘Lap 47’ focuses on performance upgrade, aerodynamic enhancement, wheels, exhaust system, visual upgrades, brake system, bodykit, suspension upgrades, engine lubricants and performance tires. Lal feels that it is easy to deal with customers these days as there is no need to educate them about the products or services.

“I am among the first car owners to entrust ‘Lap 47’ with my vehicle for the Evotech remap. After remap, the car feels more alive and gives some of its German counterparts a run for their money. And today, I have completed more than 40,000 km in my remapped car, which has covered 71,555 km in total, but the car still feels as good as new,” says Remin Varghese, a satisfied customer of ‘Lap 47’.

Lal, who has done BTech in Automobile Engineering, started dreaming about his performance studio during his college days and even named it ‘Lap 47’ during the second year of his Engineering course. Before trying out his hands in entrepreneurship, he worked with BMW Abu Dhabi in the Service Quality Inspection section. “Lap 47 is a place where any car enthusiast’s dream can come true. We help customers give their car a new identity,” says Lal.
