Bulletproof’s 11th Anniversary Meet Recap

Posted by

Some of you may remember that Bulletproof had our 11th Anniversary meet this past October 15th; some of you were even there!  We had fifteen Bulletproof Select Showcase cars on display.  The Bulletproof Select stickers were designed by our GT-R specialist, Kris.  Great job, Kris – love the Option font.

Here’s the Bulletproof Select line-up.  We were lucky to have extensive coverage of the meet by William Lee of Night-Import, as well as additional photos by James Younger and David Izrailov.

 

Check out all the carbon on that DreamzSport NSX.  This thing caused quite a stir when it rumbled into the lot – full carbon fiber widebody, built motor with twin turbos, Brembo racing brake system, and finished off with some one-off vinyl graphics by the world famous Mana-P of MS-R Japan.

When this guy rolled in, all eyes were on him – you could tell that everyone knew and respected the lineage behind this hakosuka GT-R.

I think that reaction perfectly demonstrates the high-level of rides and owners who were at our event.   The day was all about quality; you could tell that by the cars that showed up.  But more importantly, the quality of the attendees was top-notch.  There was no tension between different crews or drama.  Everyone was just there to have a good time.

 

Thanks to Night-Import for covering the meet, K1 for allowing us to take over their parking lot, Phamish for providing the tasty banh mi, and everyone who came out to enjoy all of the above!

Customer Car – Full Carbon Dreamzsport NSX

This NSX has been eagerly anticipated. In my 10 years doing this for a living, I’ve run across some very dedicated enthusiasts. I’ve seen a lot of project cars get built, but nothing quite like this. Since I started working with Kitty and Keith at Dreamzsport roughly 8 years ago they’ve been building this very same NSX. This car has taken roughly 10 years to build…and I don’t mean being built in phases in between use like most of us do.  I mean like 8 solid years of downtime during the build. The amount of patience they’ve had working with the various builders, fabricators and shops (in multiple states across the country) is really quite phenomenal. This car was (I’m fairly sure) out of state for more than a year straight for one phase of the build.

At this point, mod list wise, this NSX is the heaviest modified NSX in the world. Kitty and Keith are very passionate and extreme about their love for cars, and this NSX has been one of their main life focuses for a decade to reach this point of completion.

I remember getting them a Gruppe-M supercharger kit from Japan back in 2003 or so for this car. You’d think that such a rare and high performance power system would be good enough for just about anyone. Yet shortly after they dumped the Gruppe-M kit and went to a custom twin turbo setup.

I wont give away the mod list yet…that is for a future post. I need to give them a couple of weeks to write up all of the mods! Its insane how long the list is.

For now I simply wanted to share a 1800pix hi-res wallpaper for you all. And also to answer the long unanswered question, “what ever happened to that widebody full carbon NSX that Mana-P did those crazy graphics for”.

Here’s Mana-P’s (MSR Japan) graphics he produced for us for this build from back in the day. Yes the car finally has taken shape!

PS – Any magazines interesting in featuring this car just let me know, this is the debut of the car and I’m happy to put you in touch with the owners. Email ben@bulletproofautomotive.com
