In my mind, nothing is better than seeing American cars that are tuned in Japan. There’s something about the way JDM tuning can turn almost any car into something truly special. This time, it’s a Chevrolet Corvette Z06, tuned by Advance Auto.
Advance Auto specializes in American cars, both stock and tuned. Their cars are regularly used on the circuit and have appeared in Option video. But of all the (literally) tons of cars they’ve churned out, this is by far the most striking. It starts in the rear, with the enormous rear wing and huge carbon-Kevlar diffuser. This thing looks truly terrifying from all angles.
Up front the carbon fiber hood produced by WEST is similar to the one used on the Le Mans winning C6-R. Carbon fiber front diffuser, teeny carbon fiber mirrors and carbon fiber roof scoop round things out. (And single wipers are ALWAYS cool.)
Im not sure what wheels it’s wearing now, but it normally sports bronze TE-37’s, a very popular choice for vettes in Japan. Tires used are some Hankook Ventus S tires. Other upgrades include OS Giken lsd, Advance/Sachs suspension, Pfadt sway bars, and Exedy clutch. The power is freed by Advance APP-Data ecu tune and exhaust. This car is gaining many 1st places, so the parts are well proven. The interior consists of a seat, wheel and not much else. A RacePak digital cluster keeps tabs on things.
