@ericbauer @speedhunters_dino but you wrote: "The exterior itself is mostly wrapped in carbon-look vinyl " and clearly i'm not the only one to have misunderstood what you meant based on the comments above & below... So what's real dry carbon? And what's fake wrapped imitation CF vinyl sticker?
Are you sure about the back half of the car being just covered in imitation CF vinyl wrap as your article states?
I was lucky enough to be invited to a delicious steak dinner with Watanabe-san a couple weeks ago by the organizers of the NorCal "VintageAutoSalon" show, and I specifically asked him about this car and the carbon S30. He told me that the rear end of the car that isn't detachable fenders/doors/bonnet/trunk lid/etc is genuine dry carbon laid on top of the original sheetmetal...
Curious why the discrepancy... maybe I misunderstood ?
the red ZG replica is getting re-painted for Fuji? lol... paint looks fine... When is Nismo Festival at Fuji this year btw? Is it back on again?

1/5 and 1/4 scale are pretty standard for car design models. When we aren't working in full size that's what we go for.
It's cool that Toyota made so many of these for public display. Saves square footage in the museum I guess? lol ...

DS one seems to go straight to driver's head, wondering where PS goes to in the floor ??

@MattAtDoyle Just a regular single cam L series, probably stroked to 3000cc or more
@TEC That's how they were sold from the dealership... Watanabes were an OPTION, not standard

@sean klingelhoefer ... hey sean, so is this an original A/FX factory car, or a modern look-alike? I thought it was at first when I started reading the article, but now I'm not so sure... please confirm
Is it because of the amount of wide angle in the camera lens, or does the impala actually not fit in the typical kiwi garage? (3rd pic down)

I am always amazed about the random French words that make their way into Japanese products... "egoiste" means selfish / egotistical... I get it, but still an odd name for a trim level... @speedhunters_dino Have you gotten any indication from Nissan as to the expected longevity for the carbon discs ? I can imagine that changing them out will cost a small fortune, but then again it seems that more and more LeMans teams seem to get by the whole 24hr race on the same set of rotors, so in day to day driving they might actually last a LONG time... Curious ...
