Seeing Red

Posted by

My apologies for the quality of this photo, but this Hakosuka was just too good not to post.  How could anybody not love the red and bronze combo with perfect wheel fitment?

Longtime readers of this blog may know that I’m usually not a huge fan of red cars. I realize that I’m in the minority on this one, but I think it is one of the most played out colors for sports cars. Yet somehow the very oldest (Hakosuka GT-R) and very newest (2012 R35 GT-R) both look incredible in red. As a result I’m compelled to show a couple more red GT-Rs.

A side-by-side comparison really shows off the good genes that were passed down the GT-R lineage.

The row of red R35s above and the iconic headlights of the Hakosuka below were both snapped at the R’s Meeting in Japan last month.  Plenty of red GT-Rs there!

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!
