Following on from last weeks video which im sure many of you have watched to brush up on whats hot in the “tuning scene”, we’ve managed to track down one of the creations from the talented stylists. This Dodge viper (opel corsa) has all the styling features you could ever look for on a “hot hatch” .
Most people in the Honda scene all over the world know this car, its just one of those cars that has been passed around and talked about for years on forum’s and such via photos. After a long and healthy career tearing up race circuits in Japan, this car is now fortunate enough to reside in the extremely capable hands of the Tuning Factory. And where better to shoot this N/A monster than in the workshop that famously maintains it.
This car has the most amazing history of a track car hailing all the way from the land of the rising sun and now the people of Ireland get to witness this amazing spectacle as it sets record times on our home soil.
I was glad to finally get a chance to cover the Mondello practice, which is held once a month at Mondello Circuit. Each time it had been on so far I couldn’t make it due to some nonsense in hospital but seems how everything was getting better, it was good to get out and start covering again! The day definitely lived up to my expectations. Everybody from all different levels of skill had the chance to hit the track and hone their skills.
“Radical machines with aggressive appearances”
Enjoy this clip of Hideo Itakura in his RA28 Celica, … especially the final entry. It never gets old!
Another example of why we love the land of the rising sun that much, An ER34 and some RS Watanabe Type R’s. A combination you would never think about working this good. Let’s hope that things don’t get any worse over there.
Maybe they should bring this back haha
I’m sure everyone has seen the devastation by now, I just hope that you can say a prayer for everyone whether you believe in a higher power or not. A country that many car enthusiast look to, in terms of cars and inspiration and culture. We can only imagine what the horror of an 8.9 earthquake followed by a tsunami ravaging the east coast line must be like. It looks completely surreal on the T.V.
Please say a prayer for the people of Japan
