Probably my absolute favourite wheels on an EK. Nice choice!

Not sure if I dig the gold, but overall I think it's pretty well done. Lots of quality parts and a turbo NSX gets a thumbs up in my book. Nice use of the Long Beach track as a backdrop too!

To add: at least you have mentioned there IS a sacrifice. I've read articles on Canibeat claiming that ridiculously stanced cars are somehow still completely fine as track cars.

Fair enough, and I have to admit that video was pretty impressive. I'm not sure how much could be won back by adjustability when the cars have gone that far to the stance side of the spectrum, but I digress. Good on the owners for building the cars that they want, I guess I just really don't "get" the stance movement.
Owner's opinion =/= fact. Straight line speed is one thing, but you can't honestly say a chassis-scraping ride height, air bags, and hellaflush fitment would handle better than stock. Fair enough they do look cool, but that's basic physics say the car's handling and, let's be honest, drivability has been "ruined" as you say. I don't think anyone is knocking stance cars/VW scene in general. The issue is trying to say you can have the best of both worlds, which you've done before Paddy (no offense). Just saying.

Nice! Been a little while since a good Honda feature. I quite like this one - nothing is revolutionary or outlandish, but everything is just done right. Quality parts, clean build.

I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of the Veyron as such. I much prefer my supercars to be light, NA and RWD - like the lovely F1LM Jonathan featured. However, I do massively respect the Veyron for what it is. Not just the speed, but the fact that it combines that speed in a reliable, drivable package. A lot of journalists who have driven the Veyron have said your grandmother could drive it to the shops if she wanted - almost the polar opposite to cars like the SSC Aero. Then there's the engineering. Even just the detail things, like the cabin and the hydraulic wing mounts. It's almost like everything has been engineered to the n'th degree just because they could. Not my kind of car, but very cool nonetheless.

Wow, some of those bodykits are horrible! Quite liking some of the other cars though. That Dino is very cool.

I can't help but think that if this car was built by your average American Canibeat/Stanceworks kind of guy it woulf be getting bagged out a lot more. Fake plastic Brembos really kind of sum up the whole build.

@JDMized @Hotcakes I know they're played out in the VW scene, but some BBS RS' would have set the car off perfectly - just in a sensible size/tire. Think more Berg Cup than Hellaflush. Plus yes, definitely Recaros. Some old-school ones with the mesh headrests would look killer. But yeah, definitely digging this car otherwise. Which for me is big, since I strongly dislike the VW scene lol.

@JDMized This. I'm not usually a fan of VWs, but this is actually rather cool apart from the fitment.
Speaking of GTOs, whatever happened to that planned feature of that crazy Time Attack one that was at (I think) TAS? Mental variety of cars here though, and to think these are "just" the parking lot cars, and not part of the actual show itself.

@pintovit I'm surprised they're only aiming for 300hp to be honest. It's a 4.3L V8 with ITBs, it should be capable of much more. As you say, probably for show.

@Dbee If this was a dedicated Ta car I would absolutely agree. But it's just their drift car which occasionally gets tracked for "fun", so I don't mind it so much. It's a nice looking kit at least, especially in carbon as JDMized said. Now the BenSopra 380SX on the other hand...
Always a fan of Exciting Car each year. There's always a nice variety of cars. Love the M3, and definitely need more on the SS Works Levin!

I thought it sounded familiar, but go on then let Sean have a go lol. Plus the release of the Huayra seems like a good enough reason (excuse) to revisit...

Kuod Sean, fascinating post. The attention to detail on these cars is just mind-blowing. Now how about a factory tour of Pagani next? ;)
@speedhunters_dino That being said, on the actual topic of the article it's definitely refreshing to see D1 get back on it's feet so to speak, after the happenings of the past couple of seasons. Hope it's a good one.
