I always seem to repeat this notion, but a lot of times keeping things simple goes a long ways. Case in point, this simple and gorgeous JDM Suzuka Blue S2000. With this car, you can literally count the aftermarket parts on one hand, but because these are well chosen parts (i.e. Mugen M7) it makes the car stand out from the rest.
When it comes to building a car, I’ve noticed there’s several very popular approaches and one of my favorites is what I like to call, the catalog car. What I mean by “catalog car” is that the builder tends to favor a few if not just one brand of parts throughout the whole car. Some people have mixed feelings on this type of build but if it’s tastefully done, I’m all for it. This past Sunday at the Wekfest Toy Drive I got a chance to snap a few shots of said catalog car and it’s absolute Mugen heaven.
I’ve actually been following Hanzel’s build for quite a while, and his Mugen S2k is as clean as they come. This car is what I’d call a true catalog car cause I’m almost positive this thing has the full Mugen catalog in it, from the wheels to the aero, and to the engine bay and interior. Mugen. ALL Mugen.
I also like the semi-tuck job in the engine bay, gives it a real uniqueness compared to other Mugen builds.
That’s all for now folks! But stay posted for more coming up soon!
I love it when owners mix match parts on their car that actually works! Case in point, this sinister S2K from Japan. This beast of a car has got parts from all sorts of manufacturers, I’m talkin’ Sorcery front bumper, Spoon front fenders, ASM rear overfenders, Top Secret rear diffuser, and a Mugen hard top…not to mention the J’s Racing spoiler as well…
Alrighty, it’s almost bed time for me, but before I go snooze, I thought I’d drop some more photos from yesterday on here for you guys to look over. Before I go into the photos though, I just want to say that this year was bigger and even better organised than the previous. I loved that there were a variety of music going around, the food trucks ( that were not there last year ), and also the fact that the booths are all setup together is a big plus for me. I also thought that there were a pretty decent amount of quality builds that were showing, and considering the fact that the show is free, I could definitely justify the 45 min drive down to SJ.
And for now, on to the pics!
This R8 is FOR SALE BTW…
This thing was absolutely mint!
The famous ATS Garage Type R looking so fresh and so clean!
This absolutely gorgeous Type R is one of those great examples of a ride that does not require a killer stance to gain attention. Instead, this beauty uses tasteful, authentic parts from Mugen, J’s Racing and others to break necks.
Simple and clean cars are definite staples on MoMoHitsTheSpot! and this super clean Berlina Black S2k is a prime example. I love the fit of the TE37SLs on this car but the ultra rare Mugen half lip definitely needs time to get use to IMO…
The first question that came to my mind when I saw this set was, “How can you not like, I mean, LOVE these photos. A tastefully modified NSX and a sensational Integra Type R together in one set is just an absolute Honda enthusiast’s dream come true. And the fact that these two are rocking authentic goodies throughout makes this shoot that much better.
