Kim Chiu considers her black Hyundai H350 as her “home away from home,” and for good reason. It’s not only custom designed to her specifications but is also Manila-proofed to deal with the traffic situation in the metropolis. Atoy Customs made those amenities possible for the Kapamilya star.

Kim tells StarStudio.ph that she first learned about Atoy Customs a few years ago through Kris Aquino, who’s been a longtime client of the company. She then had her vehicle at that time, a Toyota Grandia, customized and she loved it.

Later, she bought a bigger car, a Ford E 150, and had it customized as well. Just last year, sometime in 2017, she acquired her current ride. As for her first two customized cars, she says she has sold them.
