Top Secret Top Speed runs

Here are some nice video’s from the previous top speed runs that ‘Smokey’ Nagata did. Everything is being filmed by Chiba Kun. Nobody knows who Chiba Kun is all we know is he races the Wangan at midnight.

This is a clip where you will see Smokey do 211MPH (341km/h) on the German Autobahn. His car of choice was the Nissan V35 GT-R, it featured a V8 from the Nissan Q45. The car output was around 800hp

Here you see the Top Secret V12 Supra in action on the Shuto Expressway. He also explains why he is called Smokey, if we didn’t allready know that :)

This is were it all started for me, here you see Smokey getting caught by the UK police. This was my first introduction to Top Secret. The car he used was a Toyota Supra with a RB26 onboard, he passed the 300km/h barrier.

Fujita Engineering RX7

Changing the appearance of ‘older’ cars to make them look newer is popular in Japan. Everybody knows the Supra made by Top Secret by now. Here’s a RX7 made by Fujita Engineering, better know as FEED. Offcourse there are Mazda purists that despise the bodykit. I think this kit will get the car much more attention, and I really hope I will see this kit outside Japan one day.

The bodykit consits of a frontbumper, hood, frontfenders, sideskirts, rearfenders, rearbumper and different front and rear lights, The complete kit will set you back a massive ¥1,659,000. The front lights remind me of the TVR Sagaris.

Ferrari styled rearlights and a massive diffuser totally transforms the car from the rear. The spoiler is als made by FEED

Still one of my favorites, the Advan RS. Behind it we see a nice Greddy brake assembly.
