Car Spotlight>>the D-friends S14

Earlier today I decided to plug in one of my trusty external hard drives and hunt through my old photos for some interesting S-chassis photos to post up. I quickly came across some photos of a memorable S14 that I shot on a very dark and rainy day at the D1 Street Legal Tsukuba event back in December 2008.

Built by Garage D-Friends down in Fukuoka, this race car-inspired drift machine has got to be one of the coolest S14's I've ever laid eyes on.

Setting the theme for the entire car is the Type GT aero kit, from D-Friends Fukuoka neighbor URAS. Yes, It might not be the most subtle kit out there, but you can't deny the impact. The classic BN Sports hood adds even more style to this 14.

The white Regamaster Evos are the perfect complement to the GT style body work, which is coated in the signature D-Friends orange hue. This shot also gives a nice look at the LED taillights.

Underneath that hot looking exterior is a built SR20 with a Tomei turbine kit, HKS transmission, ATS clutch, and all the other things you'd expect in a dialed-in drift car.

Since it's built to D1 street legal spec, it of course has number plates, a full interior, navigation, and other street car goodies.

I'm not sure exactly what the current status of this car, or if it's been changed in the two years since I last saw it.

What I do know is that it left a lasting impression on me and is another in a long line of great S-chassis.

The looks of that car remind me of the cars of the time-attack Horikoshi brothers.

I think there were some photos here on SH a while back.


i like the car, but is dislike the frontbumper, everything else is just great but the frontbumper ruins it in my opinion :/


Wow, how many times do you see regamasters on an s-chassis!


Had a bit of a drawback when i saw this article, but reading it and scrolling through the pictures, the car grew on me.

Great article!


Dont know why the front reminds me of 1999 mustang


i think the body kit looks great! something different and unique!

looks more like a time attack S14 to me


Man i really love the URAS GT kits. Im not too into the huge flared bumpers and Hellaflush thing. GT styling and functionality tickles my fancy ;)


love the kit and i think they'r the same kit on The D1 JCproject Zenki s14.

Great artical Mike


Looks pretty ricey to me =\


Nice looking s14
