From Back In The Day – 10 Years Later The Project DOME/Mugen JGTC NSX

Posted by

JGTC 1997 NSX

It was in the mid 90s that I started really getting into JDM tuning. Back then this was my favorite car, the DOME Project/Mugen NSX JGTC Car. Looking back 10 years, I can say that this is still my favorite JGTC car. Its hard for me to put my finger on why its my favorite. Of course there’s nostalgia (I got to see this car run at Fuji Speedway during my first trip to Japan). But perhaps its that in future years JGTC cars became even more advanced and even further away from the street cars they are based on. This NSX still had a bit more of a connection to the street legal NSX to me, so I could relate more to just how bad ass they made it. Plus I still like the color combo and graphics on it, I think it still looks great 10 years later.

For comparison’s sake, I’ve also put up a photo of a later NSX which would be my second favorite JGTC car (I always liked the NSX the best of the GT cars). Someday soon I’ll dig up and post more photos of old JGTC cars, they had some really cool ones back then that people have forgotten about (AE86, Silvia, McLaren F1, Diablo, etc). And if my memory serves me right, I recall even seeing a Chevy Cavalier JGTC Car (they sold it as a Toyota Cavalier in Japan). Its been a while…someday I’ll dig up the old pictures perhaps. But for now, enjoy my favorite JGTC car of all time.
