Straight Outta Japan: 600 HP Midnight Purple GTR

As cliché a title this is, I thought it was appropriate for one of Japan’s finest automotive creation, the R34 GTR. This pristine Midnight Purple example is one of the latest offering that’s up for grabs through Global Auto, and this thing is packing some heat! Not only is the Midnight Purple version limited to only 300 units, this particular car is pushing 600+HP courtesy of HKS/Tomei internals and a Trust T78-29D snail…of course, with the built motor, this monster can easily achieve higher power potential through the use of a larger turbine.

Midnight Purple on Pressed Double Black TE37SLs is pretty fucking perfect.

600 HP of 2.7L RB looks something like this…

But of course, Greddy/Trust gauges are essential for a setup like this.

[Event Coverage] Wekfest SJ 2015 LTMW Edition

So, I decided to start off my coverage with the LTMW cars because there were just so many of them and I managed to take photos of almost all of them. They had literally a full row to themselves, with almost the entire fleet sporting the Liberty Walk treatment. Of course, with this depth in quality builds, the LTMW crew took home the award for best crew, albeit easily, because I didn’t see any other group or team that could’ve matched up to their level. So, without further adieu, here’s some of my shots of the LTMW crew.

The Gallardo was one of three cars without the LB treatment.

The FRS Bunny was the other.

And also the outrageous Vollkommen Design STi.

One of the first cars that greeted the spectators was this LB Challenger.

Yas Marina Blue is probably my favorite car color right now.

M4 looking a little subtle compare to its teammates…..but I ain’t mad at that. I love the subtle and clean look, and those TE37 Ultras look perfect on this car.

This is the more crazier and lower BMW. I love the HREs in comparison to the Rotiforms on the other cars.

Of course, when mentioning anything Liberty Walk related, a GTR is the usual suspect. Though, I don’t know how I feel about these Rotiforms knocking on Watanabes…

The “other” GTR.

And my personal favorite from the entire crew……..

The 997 Turbo S with the full Liberty Walk scheme.

The Innotech exhaust looks freaking amazing fully exposed!

So, that’s it for right now as I need to go through some more photos from the event, but expect them to be dropped on the blog some time soon! Also, I know there were a few cars that I missed from the LTMW group, but I was probably distracted from doing other things… Anyways, thanks for looking as always!

Advan Circuit Meeting 2015

Another weekend, another meeting. This is the way of life for car guys in Japan, and needless to say, I’m a bit jealous. I honestly think one of these days I’m just gonna pack my bags and head to Japan for a year or two and just really indulge myself in their automotive culture. Cause I’m not really about that hellaflush or mad camber kinda life, to me, I personally enjoy track and functional cars over others. You know, events like HKS Premium Days, Hyper Meetings, Attack Challenge, Advan Circuit Meeting, etc; these are the types of meets that I want to be a part of, and that’s just something we don’t have here in the States. But anyways, I saw these photos from the recent Advan Circuit Meeting, and sharing is caring!
