DTM Mercedes Benz 190E

Despite having some of the most desirable cars all to themselves, Japanese people also love rare European cars that they couldn’t get at the time of the release, like the 1986 M3 or the Mercedes Benz 2.3 190E. Matsumoto-san owns a W201 and he has made a nice impact on his project.

The N-Style Supra

The N-Style Supra

I haven’t showed you guys any modified Supra in the past couple of months, so I decided I write about one. This Supra is owned by Nagahama-san of N-Style and it was built to drift. He used to own a Toyota Soarer powered by a 1JZ engine.
Being a drift car, the suspension department needed some upgrades, like the Aragosta adjustable suspension and the Eau Rouge Type-2 knuckles. This was needed in order for the car to handle big drifts.

JUN V8 powered BRZ

JUN BRZ

I fell in love with the work that the JUN workshop is capable of several years ago while watching Best Motoring. Their swapped K series engine into almost any Honda model, and even beyond Honda, was a legend. Well, I know we have shown you a lot of AE 86/BRZ projects, but the one prepared by JUN is one of the most interesting and unique ones there are.
