Another big week of Speedhunting from all around the world is almost upon us, but before we get into that it’s time to take a quick look at some of the videos we’ve been checking out over the past 7 days.
Let’s get started with a new clip from Nismo TV…
Nissan Motorsport’s YouTube channel has given us some great in-car POVs of late, and this video featuring the D’Station Nissan GT-R GT500 is every bit as good. Filmed at the recent Nismo Festival held at Fuji Speedway, watch as the Super GT machine mixes it up on track with everything from a Le Mans R90CK to a couple of tour buses… You’ll definitely want to crank this one up!
Next up, we’re in Germany for the annual Essen Motor Show – an event that has a little bit of everything, but brings out some of the region’s most high-profile show car builds. They’re the main focus of this official highlight clip.
It was back at the 2014 SEMA Show when Speedhunters took out the Scion Tuner Challenge with the retro-race-themed #MaximumAttack FR-S built by our very own Keith Charvonia. For 2015 however, Scion turned its attention to the new iM; pitching fashion labels illest and Crooks & Castles against each other with two cars, 90 days and a couple of modest build budgets. The finished iMs were revealed last month at an exclusive pre-SEMA event prior to them being displayed in Las Vegas where the final public votes were sought, but it was the very recent LA Auto Show where the 2015 STC winner was announced.
We’ve seen plenty of RAUH-Welt Begriff Porsche videos since Nakai-san has gone global with his bespoke 911 builds, but this short film charting the creation of RWB Clermont in Atlanta, Georgia, is a little different. Yes, it shows the Japanese artisan at work as he cuts and drills a 964 to give it the RWB wide-body treatment, but its owner, Tate Askew at MotorCarStudio, also explains why joining the RWB family is so much more than a custom-built car.
As always, if you’ve watched a cool video online this week, don’t forget to share it in the comments section below!
