#iamthespeedhunter: Vicarious Speedhunting

Another week, another chance to live vicariously. Although the last few days have been all about SEMA – and rightly so in my opinion – I thought we could take a look at what happened outside of the Las Vegas Convention Centre. @Tennster has been documenting some great RWB Thailand developments over the last few weeks and is definitely worth a follow.

Although I’ve yet to lay my own eyes on Miura-san’s FRS, I feel like I already know the car inside out. With the ZN6 still in its infancy, I think the car has a bright future amongst enthusiasts.

The unmistakable scenery of the Nordschleife.

It’s amazing how instantly recognisable all twelve miles plus of the Grüne Hölle.

This Russian Hot Rod caught my attention as I browsed through the results of the #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER tag on Instagram. The hand crafted car is built with an American V8.

E36 saloons are good. E36 Saloons dropped on their nose are even better.

I’ve no idea what’s going on in this shot but thought I’d share it all the same. A man split between the two loves of his life?

An Escort MKII travelling sideways. I’d be disappointed if it wasn’t.

A 458 Italia in the wild. I’m absolutely infatuated with these at the moment, such a striking piece of machinery.

It’s not all Ferraris around these parts however. A Fiesta looking like it has just rolled off the strip at Santa Pod.

An ’86 and what I believe to be an E46 M3. On paper at least these are miles apart, but for grin factor alone I’m sure they’re much closer.

If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour… you’re gonna see some serious sh*t. 

Body panels are clearly over-rated.

Our friends @MaihamMedia shared this photograph of one of the MotorFix cars.

I wonder does @K20andrew‘s AE86 live up to this K20 moniker?

A 1983 Nissan Bluebird Turbo from a different kind of Group C to what us Europeans are used to. Note to self, make it to Bathurst before I die.

A V8 370Z from Australia also features a disturbing lack of body panels.

Although I can’t confirm it’s authenticity, there is something special about a GT40 – regardless if it’s original or a kit car – on the road. So, so impressive.

Back tomorrow with more of your e-mail submissions!

Woohoo! My GT40 pic got featured! Thanks Paddy! Also unsure if it was authentic or not @PaddyMcGrathSH , but it did have Australian historic plates on...which has me thinking that it was. All I can say for certain though was it sounded unbelievable, and I almost wet my pants with excitement when it overtook me!

Nice to see the escort being so naturally sideways in the pic

The Nissan Bluebird is the fastest touring car to lap Bathurst before they added the chase in 1987. There is a Group C Exa floating around somewhere aswell.

That 370Z is going to be V8 powered 370Z drift car in the Drift Australia and D1NZ championships

 

Can't wait to see this go up against Sky Zhaos new V8 powered 350Z

 I'm not 100% sure but I'm sure I've seen that car in the paddock at a track day before.  If it's the car I'm thinking of it's a Roaring Forties GT40 replica. 

 

Still, they're meant to be the most accurate GT40 replicas money can buy....

The Internet instantly makes everything you type completely pointless.

Considering a lot of these images aren't filtered through IG, I think your statement is both unwarranted and a little bit pointless.
