●Top Secret VQ32

Top Secret never fails to amaze. Even when there is little out there they haven't done, they always manage to come up with original cars. Check out the VQ32 Skyline which was shown at the beginning of the year at the Tokyo Auto Salon. Gone is the RB26 and the AWD, replaced by a VQ35DE from the Z33 and V35. And if that wasn't enough it pushes out almost 360PS in NA form! Look at the detail that has gone in to making the custom twin carbon air-boxes and the 6 throttle set up with gold trumpets!

●How much can you chop??? CS Hiro Impreza

Ever wondered what the chopped roof hot-rod look would look like on a modern Japanese car? Well so did Car Service Hiro, a specialized body-shop which develops and builds its own kits and has made some very special cars in the last few years.

CS Hiro built this car originally for Subaru, who displayed it at the 2004 Tokyo Auto Salon. Having no use for the car after the Salon CS Hiro bought the car off Subaru and eventually turned it into the 500 PS demo car you see here. Spot details like the full leather interior (including the leather-wrapped roll cage), radiator & intercooler mounted in V and the cool flake-effect paint job.
The car managed to lap Tsukuba in 1'00"912 during the Tsukuba Super Battle last December.
