Melbourne’s Moment In The Spotlight

Right at this moment, the Speedhunters tag team of Larry Chen and Dino Dalle Carbonare are winging their way to the southern hemisphere for the first round of Formula Drift Asia at Calder Park in Melbourne, Australia. And so, we thought what better treat for our Antipodean followers than to offer you the chance to get your car featured in these hallowed pages?

Think your car’s good enough to grace the virtual pages of Speedhunters? Is it mad, bad and crazy enough that the whole world needs to know about it? If so, then this is your chance to get featured. To do so, you need to send an email to either larry@dev.speedhunters.com or dino@dev.speedhunters.com, with a couple of good pictures of the car, and enough information to convince us that it’s worth featuring. The best couple of cars will be selected and will need to be able to get their car to Melbourne (preferably meeting the team at or near Calder Park where the Formula Drift Asia event is behind held) at some point this weekend (26th – 28th April), where the team will conduct a full photoshoot.

So what are you waiting for? Your car’s fame awaits!

100mm event will also be on over the same weekend.

 

A handful of Sydney cars have made the trip down for the event from Built To Order & House of Stance.

such a shame it's in Melbourne and not Sydney...

 

also a shame that the 1 of 2 in the world car we're restoring isn't finished yet.

 @AmirIzham no build thread, we don't do things like that.

 

It's a factory prototype of a model that never went into production. It was never properly acknowledged by the factory itself, the head of the experimental department never even knew about it.

 

The car is a Mini Moke, which is the same design as the Mini except with a different body. They did go into production (quite successfully as well) here in Australia. The difference about ours is that it's 4wd.

There is only one other like it in the world.

 @AmirIzham  @aussieANON I read it as if half of the world's cars aren't finished yet

which somehow doesn't sound weird..
