After spending a long weekend hanging out with Andy & Emily of Powervehicles.com up in Ebisu, I couldn't head back home before grabbing at least one picture of their JZS161. This is the car they use as their daily driver, and is one of the cleanest Aristo around. It has been dropped on 19-inch AEM TM-02 wheels thanks to a set of GP Sports G-Master suspension and sits nice and flush thanks to the flared rear arches and front Kazama Auto FRP fenders. The unique look comes from the full Kazama Auto aero as well as special Powervehicles red-flake color that Andy sprays all his cars in. Other bits and pieces include Kazama rear LED lights as well as a lip and roof spoiler. This JDM-only V300 Vertex edition runs a 2JZ under the hood and a smooth shifting auto transmission, but Andy has kept things simple only upgrading the intake and fitting a Tanabe twin-exit exhaust. With the snow coming soon in Nihonmatsu Andy will be storing the Aristo over winter and getting behind the wheel of his new Mitsubishi Pajero, which will allow him to reach Ebisu circuit for a bit of snow drifting!
