What We’ve Been Watching…

A new month of Speedhunting is almost about to begin, but before March officially kicks off, it’s time to take a quick look at some of the videos we’ve been watching this week.

First up, we’ve got a new clip from the guys at Petrolicious

A classic 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo and its Australian owner are the subjects of The Widow Maker – another great short film that’s beautifully shot and edited in typical Petrolicious style. There’s a sad story behind how Deryck Shakespeare came to be in possession of the boosted 911 – one of only 28 brought into Australia in 1978 – but it remains in the family, and looks set to stay that way for a very long time.

EKanooRacing have been making regular appearances in our video round-ups of late, but it’s for very good reason: they’re seemingly unstoppable in the world of sport compact drag racing. The latest feat? Resetting the GT-R (and all-wheel drive) record with a 7.26 @ 328km/h (204mph) blast down Bahrain International Circuit’s drag strip.

Next up, it’s the story of a man with a huge amount of passion for his dual-purpose street/track car. That car is one of the first JDM imports into the USA – an FD3S Mazda RX-7 that in its J-side life was modified by rotary tuning houses RE Amemiya and Stillway. Car Life: The Midnight 7 by Singular Entity is well worth a look.

Finally this week, we have a short clip from Ferrari featuring archival footage of the man behind the legendary Italian sports car brand. My Life, My Dream is one of a few similar videos uploaded by Ferrari, so make sure you check those out too if you like what you see here.

That’s all for now, but as always, if you’ve watched a cool automotive-related video this week, please share it with us in the comments section below!

Ahh, that FD man. I really hope to haul one of my own from Japan by the end of the year. And build it. Such a rad car!


The FD3S RX-7 is actually from Vancouver, Canada. Cheers.


The 7 is from Vancouver, Canada. Beautiful car!


What wheels are on that FD? They're the same wheels that are on the Cyber Evo and they're gorgeous


These guys imported an e30 Touring (wagon) to the US and they're modifying it in what appears to be an amateur Top Gear. Really cool



LukeEVOVIII Enkei rpf1? or similar...


LukeEVOVIII Actually AME TM02

grande Enzo..!


I wonder what ET the Ekanoo GTR would post if it went in a straight line.  Tee hee. That was a big veer.


It's unfortunate that there aren't more facilities to support people who want to modify cars here. Of course in a safe and reliable way to its passengers though. Most car insurance companies would balk if you even tried applying for some protection in a modified car not to mention your warranties getting voided too!
