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!
Usually when you see track cars, they’re usually filled with battle scars or scrapes and scratches, but this S2k is an incredible exception. As you can see below, I love how this S2k gets tracked out while looking clean as fuck. Also, it’s nice to see that Top Secret front bumper rather than the usual ASM/Amuse pieces and those front and rear fenders…..wow…
There are cars out there that just seems pretty basic and simple at a quick glance, but when you take a more detailed look into the vehicle, there is actually a lot of work that’s put into it. Take this S2000 for example, it seems like a regular stock-bodied car, but upon closer inspection, you can make out an ASM front fender, a Sorcery front bumper, a molded rear quarter panel, a modified rear bumper and a host of other fine details. Not to mention the mismatched WedsSport SA15R and Work Emotion 11R that actually sets the car off quite nicely as well.
Decided to go with a straight forward but eye-catching title for this post lol. These two beautiful widebodies are actually owned by one owner, believe it or not. And the fact that both of them are equally well modded and widebodied is even more unbelievable…
Pretty simple and straight forward title with this post… A GPW S2000 on CE28RT wheels. One of the things that I really liked about this car is how well the GT wing works with the rest of the car and I absolutely LOVE the contrast of the red CE28RTs off the GPW paint.
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…
It’s been a long while since I’ve done a shoot, so last Sunday I was able to find some time to shoot my buddy Michael’s gorgeous S2K. I absolutely love how simple but effective the parts work on this street car and everything is there for a purpose.
The Volk TE37SL Black Editions look absolutely amazing!
Love the all black scheme of the car with just a hint of color from the SLs. The Bride buckets are also a very nice touch to the interior.
Further into the shoot I decided to jump in with my car as well!
