It is stuff like this that makes me pumped up to be an ADV1 wheel distributor. These wheels look absolutely incredible on the Ferrari Enzo.

I scan a lot of great blogs for my inspiration. Here are a couple of things I wanted to share with you all this weekend.
1. Rice Paddy Art in Japan
My friends at ASI Japan posted this cool and quirky trend on their blog recently. They have a number of pictures of rice fields with some pretty crazy art integrated into them.
2. Austin Powered (by F20C)
I love my S2000 and I love light weight sports cars. What is not to love about an Austin Healey Sprite with a S2000 motor swap!? With all of the time we spend discussing tuned cars putting out huge power #s, I can pretty much guarantee you that nobody is having more fun with 240hp than the owner of this car. Quantifying the fun of driving a car is never as easy as quantifying horsepower.
3. Bosozoku Style Ferrari!?!
A Berlinetta Boxer 512LM Ferrari got some JDM Boso-esque modifications that I never would have imagined. This is truly unique and quite crazy! As insane as it is, it’s even more impressive when you remind yourself how tame and dated the regular Ferrari is:
There we have it, table scraps for the weekend. I really don’t like to put recycled content on here, but hopefully you can find some value in my perspective and sharing these things that excite me!
If I had the money you’d see me rolling in this Ferrari F40 LM that’s currently for sale. This thing is MINT. And when is the last time you saw a Silver F40 LM (never). Super super clean and hardcore. One of the best cars ever. Somehow, there is only 800km on the car! Amazing and yet shameful for the previous owner at the same time…
This is what dreams are made of.
After seeing this picture I instantly started looking up prices of used 308 GTBs ($30,000 for those wondering). This car is flawless and a perfect example of retro JDM tuning with a Exotic car twist. If I could own this car for anywhere near $30,000 in this condition I’d be lining up for one right now.
Nakamura Engineering is one of Japan’s most well regarded Ferrari tuning and maintenance shops. We’ve featured them on this blog before, but this latest picture of their 308 GTO is one of the cleanest and best cars I’ve seen lately. You totally forget that the car is 30 years old looking at this picture!
I’ll be posting some more on Nakamura Racing soon…
In the meantime here are some older shots of seemingly the same car:
PS – Thanks to Jason’s Grain of Salt for bringing this 308 to my attention!
Although it is not officially from ASI, perhaps this may represent a direction they are considering for a future Ferrari 458 Italia aerodynamics kit? I really like the winglets over the rear fenders in this kit. I’ve been waiting a while for someone to make a well integrated x wing type design into aftermarket aerodynamic tuning.
It’s fun to look at aerodynamic design! The 458 Italia in itself brings heaps of new inspiration courtesy of Pinninfarina so it’s quite fun to start to imagine tuner versions.
