Absolutely epic. Many of the angles of the C1 I feel like I know from Tokyo Extreme Racer: Zero. Love the photos too! But how did you manage this shot: http://cdn.speedhunters.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Dino-GT-R-C1-Drive-13.jpg ? Thanks again Dino for great pictures.

I desperately need to experience an EVO first hand, but I am fortunate enough to have recently purchased an '02 Bug-eye WRX. The only reason why I chose Impreza here is because of how intoxicating I find the exhaust of the boxer-4 with an aftermarket exhaust. It is so unique, it just give the Impreza (an STI variant, to be fair) the edge over the more "normal" inline-4 exhaust of the EVO. Cosmetically, they both win for the same reasons; it would be unfair to judge either one on handling merits, and I only have Subaru experience.

@speedhunters_dino @jonathanycw with upgraded pads, rotors and lines...aren't the factory Brembos plenty capable?

I hadn't had the opportunity to check into Speedhunters lately, but feverishly clicked on the link to your project. I had no idea you have had it since new (?)!!!! Awesome. I remember drooling over the Tomei catalog shoot. I think it is awesome that you have progressively modified your car, and totally agree with that method...and wish I had followed that thought process with my Corrado VR6 build. Just a week ago I purchased a 2002 WRX and plan to follow the progressive means of "tuning" more closely.I think the stock mirrors look best on the R34; the M3-look items angle up too high. I like the stock badges, but removing the NISSAN emblem and leaving the GTR one on the rear would follow the front's theme...oh, and I love the black TE37s.

The F-Type look good, but its visuals are more "modern sleek, sophisticated" versus the E-Type's "Classy, smooth, luxurious, sumptuous" lines. On that alone, and trying my best not to be swayed by nostalgia, I don't think the F-Type will have the same iconic status. The chief difference between today and back then is how difficult it is to be ground-breakingly different. Unfortunately, the F-Type will become just another premium two-seat roadster...with each ensuing version being touted as bigger, better and faster than its predecessor. Jaguar could have re-written the book by going back in time, and focused on Lotus-like levels of weight savings and performance. The Lotus Elise/Exige that was sold in the US will enjoy iconic status for many years, because it is different in concept and execution from everything else on the road, the F-Type, not so much.
