I was leisurely browsing through the pages of the Feb. 2009 issue of Option Magazine tonight when I came across some big news about 2008 D1GP series champion Daigo Saito. For 2009 he will be leaving his JZX100 Chaser behind and switching to a Ford Mustang GT. Yep, that's right….a Mustang in the Japanese D1 series. Saito's official website confirms the news. The car is being built by the Japanese aero parts maker Behrman and is expected to produce 7-800hp. I wonder how the "JDM Fanboys" out there will react the news? Personally, I think the idea of seeing (and hearing) a bellowing V8 muscle car in D1 Japan is pretty cool. Hopefully the new car will be shown at Auto Salon in a few weeks.
