I'm really enjoying this Garage and Workshop month on Speedhunters. I think this has to be my favourite feature so far. Very impressive what these guys have achieved especially when you find out that it's not their day job. Looks like a really cool set up. I'm definitely jealous.
P.S. - features on the S15 and blue FC (especially the FC) would be much appreciated. Sweet rides.

The damage that the Zagato did to my eyes was healed quickly by that RX3. What a beauty!

I want to thank Speedhunters (especially you Mike) for bringing Initial D to my attention. I recently found an English translation, and started reading. I'm not sure how good of a translation it is, but it makes sense and I know whats going on so it can't be too bad. I'm only about 230 chapters in but I have loved every moment.

Stunning pictures Larry!

The Rocket Bunny fenders on this car make it look almost like the AMG Black Series version of the same model. Especially when you look at it head on. I'd have the Black Series over this anyday, but I really love this car. I think it looks great. I think the Rocket Bunny/Liberty Walk look works better on some cars than it does on others, and not at all on some (thinking Liberty Walk GTR) but I think it suits the CLK. Cool build!

Tons of style and talent to match. Great article. That was a nice video too.

Maybe it's just because I'm obsessed with them, but I always feel like there is somewhat of a lack of Supra's to be found on Speedhunters. Plenty of Skylines, RX7's, S-chassis, a GT86 in every other article (sorry), but never enough Supra's. So it was nice to see not only a Supra in the spotlight, but a really good example of one. Love the Nascar-style livery.
With what looks like the majority of this year's FD grid going to ZN6 variants, I have to say, Asia's line up is a lot more interesting.

That CLK is amazing. The Rocket Bunny look works so well on that car. I love it.

One thing I've always felt with need for speed is that there is no way people who own cars such as the Veyron would race them in dangerous street races. I've always preferred the car lists in the earlier games, because they were more realistic. That being said, it is a video game, so who cares about realism. As for the film, I'm sure there's an explanation for how he gets his hands on such cars. The hero car is actually the Mustang, so that's a bit more believable.
However, and I mean no offence by this, but if you thought Fast 6 was realistic then I think you need to watch it again. It was SO bad because it was horrendously unrealistic. I was a die hard fan of the first film, the others up until 4 weren't that great but they were fun, 5 started getting stupid and when I went to see 6 I came out of the cinema angry that I had paid to sit through it. It was terrible. I doubt I will go and see 7.
Need for Speed looks like a traditional car film, not an action movie with ridiculous car stunts that defy the laws of physics, which is why I'm excited to go and see it.

Really, really love what you're doing here. An exciting partnership and venture no doubt, but I do agree with the people saying this particular car is a bit familiar. That's not to say that I don't like it. I do. I'm just bored of the 86 now. Yeah it's a great car, with lots of potential, but when so many are featured on these pages (and the pages of other sites - it's not a purely Speedhunters thing I'm moaning about!) it's hard to get excited about them.
That being said, I'm excited to see how far this can go. You said you have designed kits for a variety of equally exciting cars... I can't wait to find out what they are! Wishing Speedhunters and KM the best of luck with this!

I stopped reading at some point because I don't want to know what happens. I wont enjoy the scene as much if I know what's coming. But nevertheless, what I did read (mostly about the different types of car) was very interesting. Can't wait to see the movie

Loved the Wekfest Hawaii article, so I'm glad that made the top 10. Seeing as though I have yet to see The Goodwood Festival of Speed on this list and I doubt it will take the top spot, I'm a little disappointed it didn't make the cut. I know this has been done on page views but FOS really deserves more recognition in my opinion. Such a great event and definitely a motoring highlight of mine each year.

Saw the TRD Griffon at Goodwood this year, the only GT86 have fallen for completely.

Gatebil and Sema not in the top ten. That's shaken things up a bit! Thought Gatebil was a guaranteed top 10 contender

If #1 is a GT86/FRS I might cry. Loving this countdown!

I found this article very interesting, and extremely inspiring, so thank you Rod! For what it's worth, I think Speedhunters is an amazing... I don't know what to call it? Brand? Lifestyle? World? So much more than a website to me. I found Speedhunters some time in 2011 and even though that wasn't really very long ago, I can't imagine my life without it now. This place is my go to for my daily automotive fix. The variety and the quality of the features never ceases to intrigue and amaze me. Sadly, out of my group of friends I am the only one who is into cars on the level that us car guys consider to be 'petrol headed', so to have a place like this to come to, to indulge my hobby, talk about it with like minded people and discover new things on a regular basis is a godsend for me.
I've had a quick read of the comments on here, and it seems like a lot of people agree with me when I say that you are doing an amazing job. I for one hope to be looking around on here for a very long time to come. Please, keep up the excellent work.

Was great to meet you at Snetterton this year. Hopefully won't be the last time! Merry Christmas!

I seem to always miss the announcements for what the themes are going to be. Didn't even know there was going to be a natural theme. I thought the last one was the flash theme. When are they usually announced?

Haha, so good! Love the Lego 4-rotor.
