Y’s Factory BMW M5

16 02 2009

Good, bad or ugly? It’s cool to see a typically ‘Jap’ approach to a European motor, and there’s a lot of cool parts on the Y’s Factory M5 – check out the monster Project Mu brakes, Recaro seats and carbon splitter.

But why’s it gone so wrong at the rear? Riveted heat shields… not bad, carbon spoiler, hmm a little odd… 5in mad-angle exhausts, what the feck? They’d look better suited on a Saxo from 1999. Saying that, 5.0-litre V10 with no silencers would be awesome, and with the interior pretty stripped too it must be a right ol’ laugh to drive.

Drift-spec 2002 MY Impreza

11 02 2009

Team Orange aren’t the only guys crazy enough to build a drift-spec Impreza, Autoergonomics all the way from Greece have been busy over the past two years making their own version too.

The car wears a full Varis wide arch bodykit and Do-Luck carbon boot and spoiler. Up front there’s  a 2.5 EJ engine with  JUN cams, HKS  GT2835R turbo,  Cusco diff and MoTeC management.

Other mods include a custom CTG carbon propshaft, Brembo brakes Rays wheels and Toyo rubber.

HKS R35 exhaust system

11 02 2009

Andy @ Sumo Power sent us over some shots of the latest R35 GT-R exhaust courtesy of HKS. Naturally it carries a fairly lengthy name… the ‘Legamax Premium Muffler’, constructed beautifully from titanium and weighing about as much as a cloth.

HKS are offering two types of welding, FLUX and TIG costing at £1695 for the FLUX and £1995 for the TIG welding. If you’re lucky enough to own an R35, you might want to check out http://www.sumopower.com, you lucky bastard.
