EVENT-HONDA DAY MALAYSIA 2014

1

The title of this write up can in no way be more literal, as several thousand Honda enthusiasts gathered at the home of Malaysian Motorsports, Sepang International Circuit. This event was a congregation of owners and car enthusiasts in celebration of one of the most iconic automotive JDM brands in the world and also one of the most famous power units in the world, with 14 million VTEC units built every year, I mean, who doesn’t know the Honda brand and there were Hondas for as far as the eye can see.

COLIN-10

The loss of WRC legend Colin McRae to a tragic set of events that occurred on the 15th of September 2007 when his helicopter, a Eurocopter AS350, crashed 1 mile north of the McRae home in Lanark, Scotland, was felt ( and is still felt ) deeply by motor sport fans all over the world. The fact that 2 of his friends and his own 5 year old son Johnny perished along with him, was nothing short of devastating… Read more

Atsushi Ito is one of those Japanese tuners that flips the bird at conformity and the status quo. His brand, Weld Techniques Factory, has been around for a long time now and Ito has carved out a nice little slice of tuning stardom not only through his exploits in D1 with pro driver Koichi Yamashita and their fire breathing MkII Toyota but also through custom tuning circles with cars like the FR-S you are seeing in this special feature, exclusively to 7Tune… Read more

Avid enthusiasts and passionate tuners from all over congregate at Art of Speed to supply a visual treat and there was definitely something for everyone at the event. Read more

FEATURE – RISING FROM THE ASHES

DSC_6747

Before I set these two cars up for the shoot, I was just pondering with a friend on how people say these cars are so hard to find and so rare and yet, I have come in contact with so many of these rare beauties. Even a couple of my friends are getting into restoration of S30Z’s. From hidden personal restorations to internationally acclaimed zetto artisans, Star Road, I have been witness to a great variety of Fairlady’s and have found a deep and profound sense of appreciation for all of them, regardless of what state or style they arrive in… Read more

BP-6

Good friend and fellow JDM fanatic, Ben Schaffer, owner of Bulletproof Automotive, set out to do something very special with an FR-S. But the aim wasn’t to just slap a Rocket Bunny kit on it, a nice set of wheels and maybe some other simple upgrades and call it a day. Not even close… Read more

FEATURE – KEN’S 1000HP R34 GT-R V SPEC II NUR

KEN-27

Kenneth Blanck is a good friend of mine and not your ordinary R34 GT-R owner. Since picking up this pristine, low kilometer Bayside Blue example from renowned resellers Global Auto and now the second of two owners of this highly prized 2000 model GT-R V-Spec II Nur, Kenneth has literally thrown the book (and his wallet) at the car, ending up with a monster truly worthy of the greatest Pokemon trainers… Read more

NAGAI-1

Every once in a while I get a reality check. I’m reminded of the true depth of the Japanese automotive culture and am forced to look at things a different way. Even at the age of 35, the secrets of the deepest oceans of Japanese tuning history continue to unlock, forcing me to re-evaluate, re-consider and re-assess the way I previously saw things… Read more

EVENT – SUPER GT ROUND 3 MALAYSIA 2013 – PART 2

0`

After a good night’s rest we got up nice and early to head on over to Sepang again on Sunday to bring you the final coverage of our 2 part coverage of  the Super GT here in Malaysia and coming early was certainly the right choice to make as Sunday is always more lively at Sepang for Super GT. We stored away our things at the media centre and grabbed our vests and headed out again for coverage and we decided to get a regular spectator’s perspective and see what they see. Read more

FEATURE – THE BEE-R ROCKET BUNNY BRZ

The signature yellow, Rocket Bunny wearing, drift machine from Bee Racing in Tokyo, has caused a stir and created a lot of discussion since its conception late last year. Arguments have sprung up on all corners of the net debating what it actually is and Kiyonori Imai from Bee-R just sat back and laughed at all the attention it is receiving. You see, it’s not a Scion FR-S despite wearing Scion badges and anyone with half a brain will also figure out that the Scion FR-S is a LHD model since it was a North American designated model… Read more

FEATURE – COMING TO 7TUNE IN JANUARY

It was an absolutely MEGA end to 2012 for 7Tune – with almost a dozen events to attend, countless people to meet and a couple of international events to fly to. Here is a rundown on what you can expect on 7Tune in the coming weeks during the first month of 2013… Read more

FEATURE – THE FAIRLADY ZED 432R

I simply could not believe it. I just stood there staring at it in disbelief, wondering if it was really the genuine holy grail for all Zed lovers. Could it be the rarest and most valuable Fairlady Zed in the world; the Fairest Lady of them all?

FEATURE – THE PERFECT EF9 HONDA?

I’m going to show you around an extremely special little EF9 that is packed with modifications and built to such a high standard but at first glance you may just pass over it without a second look at it because it appears…normal.

 And yet, there is so much under the surface here, that it’d be foolish to overlook it! Trust me, this EF is properly hardcore. I had some quiet time with the car to see what really made it tick and then a rundown on what went into the build with the owner… Read more

DRIVEN – THE NEW TOYOTA 86 GT LIMTED

Finally the day arrived where I was able to put the new Toyota 86 through its paces in real life situations and I came away from the test really impressed with the car. I wasn’t blown away, nor was I expecting to be since the base model is where you start with the package but for what it is, and the price it drops in at in Japan, it makes for a compelling and delicious argument… but now I have a major problem on my hands… Read more

FEATURE – GARAGE R CARBON FIBER HAKOSUKA GT-R

The one car which completely blew me away at this years Nostalgic Car Show in Yokohama was this original KPGC10 Hakosuka 2000 GT-R that is having an entire book of EPIC modifications thrown at it. It is going to be one of THE most hardcore classic sports car to come out of Japan this year and I’ve got the details on what’s gone into it ( and what’s going into it ) at this stage of the build. Wanna know all about it? Right this way please… Read more
