As a tribute, displayed is the famous JUN Akira Supra.
In 2001 at Bonneville Speed Trial, the JUN Akira Supra earnt the top speed over ALL Toyota vehicles with 249mph.
Mr Tanaka will be greatly missed for his major contributions in the Automotive world.
I have become part of the VTEC crew, yo.
I have always been the car enthusiast who loved to explore new things. Having owned Supra’s and GT-R’s, I ventured outside my box. In search to complete the JDM trinity, I purchased my first NSX on the 1st of March 2019, with the help of import pro, Troy from Iron Chef Imports. It is a first generation NA1 Factory manual, with some NSX-r goodies including aftermarket exhaust, coil-overs, body kit and wheels. The condition this car was presented in had me at first glance even though red isn’t my thing.
I’ll be honest, it has never been my dream to own an NSX. I didn’t even know enough about it to really like it besides the way it looked – slightly reminiscent of the Ferrari F40. However, I feel a ‘pang’ that this might be the car I own forever… Maybe in a British Racing green. Yes.
The NSX lands within two months from Japan and is going straight to work to install new wheels, factory seats and carbon fibre bits. Besides that I think I will keep the car relatively stock and just enjoy it in the same format as Artyon Senna once did.

KILLER WASP AT RACEWARS 2019
Tuci’s Supra smashed 3 records over the weekend – 1st in the 6cyl 400m with 246kmh, 4th in the 6cyl 800m with 307kmh and 3rd in the 6cyl 1000m with 315khm! The ’97 model RZ makes 1200HP thanks to a Real Street 3.1L block with a Supertech head, Kelford Cams, a Precision 7675 turbo, a Haltech Elite ECU with a tune by WTFauto and a Getrag V160.
Just scratching the surface, the RZ also features a DCS 8″billet twin clutch, Custom Koya wheels – 19×9.5 fronts wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 265/35 fronts, and 19×11 rears with Toyo R888s 305/30 rears. That’s some expensive shoes to ruin over your weekend out! The shop responsible for that yellow is All Quality Panel and Paint.

Custom 3-Piece CNC'd Wheels By Rose & Co.
Teamed up with wheels and stance experts Rose & Co – Customised Multi Piece Wheels and designed some custom wheels in tribute of the OEM look. These will be replacing the Welds. They are custom, 3 piece Billet CNC’d Supra wheels. A nice modern iteration of what the stock wheels would look like in 18″ size. Offsets yet to be determined but they will be 11″ wide to hold some juicy 325 tyres!
