Car Spotlight>> St Garage 6-speed Mark X

The parking lots at Japanese race tracks never fail to disappoint. The other day while covering the D1 event in Nikko I just had to take a few minutes to grab a couple of snaps of the ST Garage Mark X.

It was sitting there by the gates to the circuit looking extremely menacing, slammed on a set of 18-inch Weds Sport SA-60M and sporting a full Brembo brake upgrade kit with monobloc 6-pots up front and 2-pots at the rear.

One thing I noticed was the “6-Speed Mark-X” writing on the side of the car and since the GRX133 is only available with an auto I had a quick look through the driver’s side window…

…and spotted a superbly executed manual-transmission conversion.

With a good old clutch pedal and stick shift the Mark X, which is already a very good car, becomes ten times more interesting. I think I may have to swing by ST Garage to find out more!

Can you please go there for real Dino, I'd love to know if they changed engines or mated the supra gearbox to the original engine

I also love how they use the colors on their cars. Nothing like a Japanese drifting event to see some of the craziest cars!
