Car Spotlight>> Singaporean Jzx100

Cars that are built and driven in Japan by some of the greatest tuning houses are popular export products. It is pretty evident when I look at some of the cars that are competing in drift series around the world, especially when I take a look at my old car that I imported from Ken Nomura through Powervehicles.  I sold the car to a guy in the UK and I was scared it would be taken apart, but luckily I saw some pictures of it drifting again.

This JZX100 was also built in Japan but by a company called ST Garage and has been campaigned by Wedsport in D1GP. The car has been imported by Ivan Lim, a name that could sound familiar to some of the American readers. He got his professional license for Formula D and had his debut during round 7 at Irwindale Speedway.

He will be returning to Formula D this year in a S13 that has been build by PAC-RIM Motorsports and previously used by Daijiro Yoshihara.

Exterior wise, the car rocks a complete Axcent bodykit. The modified front bumper with the intercooler is a hint to what lies behind. I have always liked big cars that are transformed into formidable competition cars.

The rear spoiler is the most noticeable part on the rear, it is also made by ST Garage. The car still has the original paintjob and livery and the Kazama sticker is there for a good reason because they provided the tie rods, toe arms, lower arms and tension rods for nthis car. The suspension system is further enhanced by a set of KEI Office D1 spec coilovers.

Because this car was campaigned by Wedsport in the Japanese D1GP series, Ivan still uses the rims that came with the car. They are called the SA70.

The drift scenes are thriving on every continent of the world, a car like this and Ivan are living proof. I hope to show you guys the S13 that Ivan will be using in the Formula D series. Judging by this picture, he sure knows how to get the car sideways, so I hope he can bring some international flavor the US scene.

100s are so damn cool.


So Jeroen....what's your next project?


Singapore is one of those really cool places that most don't know about. Saw my first R35 in a parking garage on a business trip there in Oct 08. I was stunned. There are some nice cars in Singapore. Just don't get caught chewing gum in public. ha ha


SA-70's are one of my most favorite rims.

Never see them on many cars though...


Never really liked the color scheme on this car, but god it sounds awesome:


Thanks for featuring us on Speedhunters. This is awesome!


one of my favorite 100's..... i wonder how much it sold for


i remember watching this getting drifted by the best in the old hot versions


Love this 100...

I remember watching this 100 in drift event at Malaysia...

cool car...


Hmmm.. Hope to see this car in Malaysia again so that I can snap it one more time..


Whoa does that green diamond sticker on the front and rear bumper say CNG? Any more info on this? I've been around CNG vehicles before but it's hard to find someone using them in a car with some performance. If you have any more info please post it up!


Wallpaper for the first shot please !!!!
