If there was a drift car version of the Devil Z driven by Akio Askakura in Wangan Midnight, this would be it. This possessed drift car is driven by perhaps the best drifter today, Masashi Yokoi. This purple DMAX S15 is one the most recognizable rides in the sport today. This devil of a machine has seen many champion runners this year such as; The FIA DRIFT CUP Leg 2 Solo Runs, D1GP Season Opener, D1GP Season Finale, FD Japan Final Round in Okayama, and several top 4 finishes. This car has been through hell and back; in the hands of Yokoi-san and been in several crashes this year. The most memorable of these being when Yokoi-san left rear tire debeaded at D1GP EBISU from jumping the drift portion of the track while in a heated battle against Daigo Saito, causing Saito-san to accidentally pushing Yokoi-san up on the foam safety barriers. The DMAX team did not miss a beat they were back on the track and ready to battle once more, culminating a top 4 finish.

The King Has Spoken!

The King Has Spoken!

When we approached Tsuchiya Keiichi-san for an interview at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon we really didn’t know what he would say or even if he would agree to do one. This is a man who not only has an incredible pedigree, but is also known for changing the car community as a whole. To our surprise, he was very open and accepting to interviewing with us. As one can imagine, we truly felt like a deer in headlights, thunderstruck and at a loss for words as the excitement took over. Tsuchiya-san is very humble and down to Earth and was more than happy to answer questions from our supporters and fans. Without further fanfare, here is what he had to say.

Manabu Suzuki Interview

Manabu Suzuki Interview

We recently caught up with Manabu Suzuki A.K.A Mana-P D1 commentator extraordinaire. This man needs no introduction. He is one of the forefathers of the drift as we know it today. When we saw him cruising around the Formula D Japan event, we could help but ask for an audience with him and he was kind enough to agree. Mana-P lays down some true insight into the scene here in Japan. His passion for the industry is truly infectious.

Hanging with Kiyonori Imai

Hanging with Kiyonori Imai

Bee-R has always been at front of the pack when it comes to building cars that make heads spin. We visited Bee-R and talk with shop owner and world renowned tuner Kiyonori Imai. He truly takes his craft serious whether it is for street or launching himself or others in to the stratosphere. There is a lot to be said about Mr. Imai. But we’ll let him speak for him.

Want some? Come get some!

Getting it right the first time can be a difficult thing to achieve. Doing too much you risk completely destroying the essence of a car. However, with great risk comes the potential for great rewards and the folks at Bee*R were rewarded handsomely for their work. According to Imai-San, this particular ride is inspired by the movie Transformers and has just the right amount of flare. We couldn’t agree more! For us, it was love at first sight!
