Boyd Coddington died this morning

Sjeez just heard that Boyd Coddington died. I always watched his show American Hotrod on Discovery Channel. I feel that he was a great contributor to the Hot Rod community.

Boyd Coddington, the hot-rod innovator whose creations won the coveted Grand National Roadster Show’s America’s Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) trophy a record six times, died Wednesday morning of undisclosed causes. He was 63.

Allthough I don’t post any vehicles that are classified as Hot Rods I really love the look of those cars.

My thoughts are with his family and his closest friends.

RIP

Nissan 240ZG by Garage Miya

I’ve made a post before on the Nissan 240ZG and I thought it was about time I made another. This car is maintained by Garage Miya from Japan. The car has been perfectly restored and has been upgraded during the restauration. Racer 86 made me aware of this beautifull machine so I wanted to show you this perfect example of old school Z.

Red EVO X

No flashy bodykits or big rims, just lowered and black painted rims. It’s as easy as that.

Car Magazine And their R35 test

Today the magazine Car will be available where they tested the R35 GT-R. They tested the car against the Audi R8, BMW M3 and a specially modified Porsche Turbo by Porsche itself. I can already give you the times the cars did around the track of Rockingham in England.

  • Nissan GTR – 82.10 seconds with a top speed of 109.7mph
  • Porsche 911 turbo – 83.10 seconds with a top speed of 114mph
  • Audi R8 – 83.83 seconds with a top speed of 107.9mph
  • BMW M3 – 85.58 seconds with a top speed of 106.2 mph

So there you have it, the Nissan is victorius again. Allthough the Porsche managed to get a higher topspeed it lost precious seconds around the corners.

Harrison R35 GT-R single exhaust

Harrison is making more parts available to the public. The new exhaust features a single sided tip and is made from titanium. The oil cooler is made to cool the differential oil because tests showed that the oil itself got too hot. Both new items will be available in may this year.

Rauh Welt Begriff Porsches

Rauw Welt Begriff (RWB) is a tuning company from Japan that specialises in Porsches. Over the years they have been building some spectacular cars. One of my favorites is their matt black Porsche 911, but there are others.

   

Auto Otaku went to Tsukuba and found a RWB Porsche tearing up the track.
