Bulletproof Automotive S2000

12 01 2009

Back in March 2008 we featured Ben  Bulletproof Automotive’s awesome Top Secret-spec S2000, featuring a supercharged 2.0-litre engine, bespoke wide arch kit and a whole host of trick mods.

So for 2009 check out one of their customer’s cars, simply called ‘Tom’. They don’t come much better than this, built up from a completely stripped, seam welded and painted chassis with nothing but top end JDM goodies.

Zele offering ‘complete edition’ R35 GT-Rs

12 01 2009

Unveiled at last year’s 2008 Tokyo Auto Salon, Japanese tuners Zele are finally offering ‘complete’ tuned GT-Rs for owners who fancy a bit more power and a lot more looks from their R35. The Zele package includes a full carbon fibre bodykit, re-spray, 20in Rays Engineering wheels, Recaro interior and an ECU reflash to 550bhp. The downside? It’ll cost $205,000 including the car, which by todays exchange rates is £136,000. Ouch.
