MoMo Visits ASM Autobacs Yokohama [Part I]

Following my visit to Garage G-Force, since I was already in the Yokohama area, it made perfect sense to stop by non other than the ASM Autobacs Yokohama HQ for some Honda goodness. This location was very easy to find and easily accessible by rail and a short walk. The first part of a two part post consist of just the exterior of the shop which had a few decent S2000s laying around.

Words to live by.

Couple of Type S’ parked out front.

The famous banner.

A few ASM demos out front.

And a few close ups of the S2ks.

I just love this yellow AP2.

That Prodrive GC-05N x AP Racing footwork.

ASM details.

The slightly more tamed Silverstone.

Classic Prodrive GC-07.

That’s it for the exterior, stay tuned for the interior shots in the next post!

Race-Bred EM1

Happy 2017 guys! I’ve been away from the site for far too long, but I’m back! And hopefully a little more active this year. You guys can always follow me on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM as I’m more active there. Anyways, for my first post of the year it’s an old set I took last year of a gorgeous EM1 at a local car meet. Enjoy.

I love how simple and effective the exterior of this Civic is, just a great mixture of function and form.

Mag Blue TE37, Alcon BBK, and Nitto NT01. You know this combo means serious business!

If the exterior doesn’t convince you that this is a race car, perhaps the interior will. Digital dash, quick release, and sequential shifter among other race car things.

One more look at the beautiful exterior.

Baller Imola

This S2000 from Global Auto might seem like a typical modified S2k but upon closer inspection, you’d realize why the title of this post is so fitting.

Front end of this S is kept relatively simple with a genuine Mugen front lip and Chargespeed carbon canards paint-matched to Imola Orange.

Moving along the rest of the car is more genuine goodies like a Mugen dry carbon hood as well as Mugen dry carbon hardtop paint-matched to Imola Orange.

Towards the back end there’s more genuine and rare parts such as the Car Garage Amis bumper, the gigantic Voltex rear spoiler, and a Powerhouse Amuse R1 titanium exhaust.

The carbon trunk is another Car Garage Amis unit.

Just in this quarter panel shot, you see why this car is so ballin’; there’s the Mugen dry carbon roof, J’s Racing wide fenders, Enkei RS05RR, Voltex carbon spoiler, and the Car Garage Amis rear bumper.

Engine wise, it is kept simple and clean with max power output at about 250HP.

And finally, the interior is highlighted by a pair of Recaro RS-G buckets in a suede finish to really complement the rest of the car.
