Jesse's Evo X with Varis, Volk, ARC, and Do Luck

Jesse’s Evo X has been completely modified with Varis, JUN, Volk, ARC, Test and Service, Do Luck, and much more.

I love pictures of cherry blossoms and tuned cars; perhaps this is our best representation of a US twist on it. There are no sakura found in this picture but still there is an amazing blend of natural beauty and a mechanical beast.

So much beauty for one photo!  Props to Jesse on this build (and the photography too which is killer).

A Slice of GT-R Heaven (Video)

Posted by

Here is a video taken last month at R’s Meeting in Japan. This video gives the best impression of what it was like to be there. In the video you’ll see me walk through perhaps the most epic parking lot of GT-Rs ever, starting with R34 GT-Rs and working back in time all the way to the legendary Hakosuka GT-R, all set to a musical backdrop tribute to the late great Japanese musician Nujabes.

I hope you like it!

For more on our time at the R’s meeting, check out my guest blog post at Speedhunters: Guest Blog: R’s Meeting Experience.

Bulletproof and GT-RR Booth Debut in Tokyo at R’s Meeting Fuji Speedway

Posted by

We’ve just returned from a successful trip to Tokyo during which we exhibited our original parts for the first time in Japan. With assistance from our friends at Do-Luck we took the best from the worldwide GT-R market back to Japan. The event was “R’s Meeting” which is the largest GT-R owners meeting in Japan. R’s Meeting is held annually at Fuji Speedway.

It is especially an honor to have a booth and offer our goods to Japan, considering that 11 years ago our business began by importing from Japan. The process of us now selling back to Japan is very exciting and completes the circle of our evolution.

We are thankful to see many of our friends in Japan and to feel their support for us. Here are just a few of the many faces behind the Japanese tuning world that we all love:

Ito-san of Do-Luck

Hiei-san of TommyKaira

Yahagi-san of Varis

More extensive coverage can be found on our facebook fan page (we were even live posting on FB at the event as it took place thanks to Ito-san’s portable wifi hotspot).

Here’s one more shot of our display. It was really satisfying to be the only foreign company exhibitor at R’s meeting. Feedback was excellent on our brand_RR original parts lineup for the GT-R and I hope that with some good fortune we will return again next year for R’s Meeting!

Customer Car: Heavily Modded Do Luck Widebody Evo 9

Posted by

Bulletproof Evo 9 Customer Car Do Luck Widebody

This car is easily one of my favorite customer Evo’s ever. The car is extensively modified and features a very rare set of wheels and aero to set it off. The 18×10.5+15 GT-R face Volk TE37 wheels are Top Secret limited models. Every exterior piece of the car has been modified from Do Luck with the exception of the hood which is a C-West piece. I particularly love the widebody elements of the Do Luck kit, the rear fenders in particular are pure perfection on this Evo.

It was great to see this car show up to our The Real JDM meet up we held late last year. The car is simply perfect looking in person. Although I’m certainly a fan of the pictures too. The picture below is my current desktop background. I’ve formatted the pictures all in hi-res so they’ll make fitting desktops if you happen to like the car as much as I do!
