●Bee-R R33 GT-R (track spec)

Well, managed to shoot this little beauty right before it was shipped to the UK to its lucky new owner by Power Vehicles.

Fully built by GT-R specialists Bee-R, it sports a fully stripped interior, roll cage and custom dash as well as full Bee-R body parts including some tasty carbon front fenders.

Not often you see OMP racing seats in Japanese cars.

●Long exposures

Took these shots last month back home in Italy. Actually snowed three times as much the day after I took these.

●Mine's BNR34 GT-R V-spec N1 base

Shot the daddy of all street based GTR demo cars a while back. This is by far my favorite GTR as I appreciate the way it is tuned and the quality of the work that is done at Mine's.

Here are some pictures.

BBS RE 18" wheels

Full dry-carbon rear wing. The adjustable part sports a gurney flap

LED GT-style lights....a real must have!

The famous Mine's Spec II engine. 600 PS and 60 kgm of bliss

Interior, again very simple, only Recaro carbon/Kevlar racing seats and a Sparco steering wheel.

A very fast rpm needle!!

Some technical shots. Notice the carbon prop-shaft and large diameter titanium exhaust.

Rear AP Racing set up and Dynamic dampers

Adjustable lower arms and AP Racing race brakes up front. Notice neatly fitted cooling ducts

●Chiba drifting

These pictures were shot in a top secret location ;-) somewhere in the bay area...

Heavy Chaser + worn out tyres= severe blistering

...and eventually popping!

The faceless drifter....nobody knows his identity....
cd-6.jpg

Notice the powdered rubber trail...concrete seems to be perfect for grating tyres!

Taken with the mighty Canon EF50 f1.4 ... keep in mind it was pitch black! A must have lens

●Comments

Due to the fact I've been getting anywhere from 200 to 400 spam e-mails/comments each day I had to remove the comments function altogether. I'm not even going to get into how much I despise people that get up to such things....

Blogging will be getting back to normal soon as I get some spare time to upload new shoots. Mine's R34 GTR N1 and TAS 2006 next.
