After having seen the Rocket Bunny FR-S in full detail back in October, as well as the countless cars wearing what has to be the most talked about aero conversion of the moment, this video from Luke Huxham and Crank & Piston couldn’t have come at a better time. Hit play and find out what makes Kei Miura’s work so unique, take a look through the TRA Kyoto workshop and see the FR-S once again in all its beauty.

Really enjoyed the behind the scenes look as to how these sick aeros come about. It 'd be interesting to see TRA Kyoto applying their skills on other makes and models.

The video and interview were both excellent.  I have read articles about Miura-san but getting to hear him answer thoughtful questions about his work/passion was really great. 

I am however sick-to-frickn'-death of the FR-S/BRZ.

Cool guy! Just wish the FR-S didn't look so mexi-flush with those overly-wide wheels.

Kei Miura has some sort of aura around him. He encompasses what a Japanese artist is. Very typical of Japanese: humble, softspoken, hard worker and borderline naive. I wish more self-proclaimed "automotive leaders" would do the same, as oppose to taking other's idea and use them as their own.

Great work! I think this is what separates tuning shops in Japan from everywhere else, or at least the U.S. Each shop owner is unique and really have their own character.

 

Shops in the U.S. are so eager to cater to whatever the latest trend is, so few have their own style and character.

 

Excellent interview!

Nice, vid, but I've never known why it's a FR-S in Japan, I would've thought it'd be badged as a Toyota 86 over there? Someone enlighten me?

Was wanting more when watching, for a man that was never interviewed before they didn't really "dive deep" into his mind. Seen it before going on to Speedhunters I just wanted to see what the comments would be like. Good video though enjoyed it.

That was sweet. He is an inspiration to use technology and ditch old way of doing things. Dino your the man for bringing this to Speedhunters.

 @Fg2_FrAn Muira designs about alot of the bodykits that come out of Japan. He's just not vocal about it. From Drift to VIP to exotic to oem, he designs it all.

 @MCCLIFTED Yes as Dino said he worked very closely with Ben Sopra on their projects and produces a lot for them. Can't wait to see their future collaborations, both companies have very cool ideas. This is what Japan needs more forward thinking workshops prepared to be involved with the overseas markets.
