TRD AE86 Race Car - Part 1 (Drift King)
- Part 2 / Qualify: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysouDJByqoI
- Part 3 / Race: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljutIYKkSUY
To drive a race spec AE86 developed by TRD was a dream when Tsuchiya was
young. Of course he had chances to drive AE86 race cars tuned by other
shops, but not TRD - because they didn't let him.
Back in the 80s, a racer with a background like Tsuchiya was not considered
"legit" - His career started off as a street/touge racer, and hadn't gone
to any professional driving school. TRD, a Toyota related motorsports
company just couldn't allow that kind of person to drive their best race
However, things have changed after 20 years. Toyota/TRD is hiring variety
of drivers with different backgrounds, and also, Tsuchiya succeeded as a
true, professional race car driver. At age of 50+, Tsuchiya finally has
chance to drive the TRD AE86.
With that car, Tsuchiya battled with other top amateur AE86 drivers -
Drivers who grew up seeing Tsuchiya make legends, drivers who devoted all
of their life and money to battle with him someday, and dreams to win.
So it's not just Drift King driving another AE86, but it's an
once-in-a-lifetime event for AE86 drivers who gathered at Tsukuba that day.

Spoon S2000 Race Car - Part 2
Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7UYQKnpmXI
Spoon had used blue/yellow color on their race cars for 25 years. But
starting from 2012 season, they had decided to change this tradition -
which means we'll never see their S2000, NSX or any other Hondas looking
The car in this video is 2012 Spoon S2000 Race Car at Fuji Speedway, shot
on the day the team had performed all of their pre-testing menu 2 weeks
before their first race in 2012. It was the last day we can see the
"traditional Spoon color" on race track.

Lexus LFA Nur Race Car
The LED "Blue Flash" on top left corner of the front window is not for
decoration. Those are equipped on the fastest 36 cars among hundreds of
other race cars, and are used to tell other slower cars that a fast car is
coming right behind. It works especially well during the night race. To
have this equipment is a true honor for any racing teams in 24h Nurburgring
race. It took Lexus 5 years to acquire the Blue Flash, and they regard
this as one of their milestone.

Lexus LFA Clears It's Throat, And Gets BUSTED...
Well you wanted more of the Lexus LFA, I was asked by many if I could get
video of the LFA's launch control, more reving, and faster driving, so that's what we did. Got
it to 168MPH!
We also paid for it also by getting pulled over and slapped with a pretty
hefty ticket. But.. It still turned out to be a fun day. Think the driver
will get the ticket lowered in court?
Elattrache Photography was also there for the filming and he got some
AMAZING photos of the LFA.
I highly recommend you check out his photos at

Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition sets lap time of 7:14
We now have the official track time for the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition.
Driver Akira Iida clocked a lap time of 7:14.64 on the
Nürburgring-Nordschleife on August 31. The special edition LFA did it
using its standard-issue (road-legal) Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tires.
The LFA Nürburgring Package is scheduled to go into a limited-run
production in 2012. Only 50 units will be from a total LFA production run
of 500 models.
The Nürburgring Edition of the LFA comes with a carbon fiber body kit, a
re-tuned suspension and an upgraded 6-speed sequential gearbox. It is
powered by a 4.8-liter V10 engine with 562 hp (419 kW / 570 PS) - the
standard LFA has an output of 412 kW (560 PS). The complete package costs
an additional $70,000 but delivers a 0-100 km/h sprint of just 3.7 seconds
and a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
