Spoon Headquarters

I always used to drive Honda in the old days 🙂 and Spoon was one of my favorite tuners for that brand. Allthought the parts were too expensive they sure were hardcore.

In the pictures you see their Honda S2000 covered with Spoon goodies.

    

Here you see the S2000 at Hakone, a road with some serious twisties and sharp corners

Pan Speed FD RX7

This Pan Speed RX7 is a real Time Attack contender and did a record lap of 55:603. That is 1:122 slower than the Mspeed R34 GT-R. Crazy if you think about it, six cylinder against a 2 cylinder wankel engine. Did you ever see a bodykit this crazy?

Phoenix Power at TAS 2008

Phoenix Power is known for their high speed cars like their JZA80 Supra that recorded a top speed of 339.7km/h. But they do more than tuning Supra’s. During the Tokyo Auto Salon they presented two gorgeuos Skyline’s. First their was this gold R34.

 

And then their was this white R32 with a completely gutted interior. Only a chair and a rollcage are their to give the driver company. This car was built for the quarter mile with a enormous T88. This car is pushing the 800bhp marker. This is a true 9 second car.
