Garage Saurus Carbon R32

I already posted more about this car here and here, but this has got to be one of nicest looking R32’s out there. I’m not in the position to buy a car right now, but I sure know how my next car will look.

My engine choice will be a fully built Mine’s RB26. The suspension will be a set of Esta spec II that is based upon the Ohlins suspension. Don’t you just love to make wish lists like these?

Tracy Sports NSX

With all those new supercars we would almost forget about that other supercar that came out of Japan. I’m talking about the Honda NSX. And I finally found one that was on the Tokyo Auto Salon.

Tracy Sports brought their demo NSX with a really nice engine setup. It’s a shame there weren’t any more NSX’s in Tokyo.

Widebody Carbon R34 GT-R

What do you get when you combine a R34 Skyline, a HKS RB2.8 engine, Holinger 6 speed gearbox and carbon widebody kit?

Then you get one on of the most hardcore looking R34’s out there. This car belongs to a friend that lives in Japan and is having his car build by Sunline Racing. It started out as a standard white R34. But now it looks like a full on Time Attack car. Remember that this is a customer car and not a car that belongs to a company.

They have just finished building the engine. According to Mr Taiyo Sato who is the boss of Sunline Racing this engine set up will be pushing more than 700bhp

Here you can see the fuel lines and swirl pots.

And a sneak peek of the complete car.

Audi R8 V12 TDI

And now for something completely different  🙂

This is how the R8 should have looked like in the first place. On the other side off the world in Detroit the Auto Show opened it’s doors. Audi presented their new R8 V12 TDI with more 500bhp and 738 lb-ft of torque to the public.
