You are probably looking at one of the nicest RX-7s that will be on display at the 2011 Rotorstock Show in the UK next year. Responsible for building this car is Miguel at Newera Imports, one of the most established sport car exporters in Japan. Under strict instructions from his customer, Miguel was to look for the perfect, low-mileage RX-7. After much searching through the massive car auctions that are held in Japan each week Miguel secured the right car, a 1997 FD3S with 47,000 km (29,000 miles) on the clock.
Image
A lot of people don't realize how hard finding cars like this is getting nowadays. With the majority of the good ones long gone, shipped off out of Japan over the years, Miguel job is getting harder and harder, but with the right contacts he is still able to maintain the high standard his company has always been known for. I got a call from Miguel telling me I really had to shoot this stunning RX-7 before it was shipped off and that he would be at his yard in Chiba the next day fitting...
Image
...the last parts to go on the car, the Weds Sport SA55Ms wrapped in sticky Dunlop Direzza Z1 tires.
Image
Needless to say this is one car I wasn't going to pass on shooting.
Image
Miguel's yard is located right on the loading docks, resembling something out of a Fast and Furious movie. Luckily a ship from Thailand had just arrived giving a very unique twist to the background. The exterior of the car was where most of the work was carried out with a full body conversion consisting of an RE Amemiya 2005 front bumper, wider front Panspeed aero fenders and side skirts...
Image
...and Panspeed overfenders for the rear.  A rather large, color-matched Vatman GT-wing is the final piece of the puzzle.
Image
Under the stock hood the 13B has been lightly tuned with a Blitz SUS filter, an intercooler hard-piping kit...
Image
 ...and a GReddy compression tube for better flow and response.
Image
The Kakimoto titanium-tipped exhaust system liberates the true rotary sound, which is just so muffled from factory. To aid with rear end downforce an RE-Amemiya rear carbon diffuser with vortex generators was also added.
Image
The interior gets a nice cozy Bride reclinable bucket seat with Sabelt harnesses along with a triplet of Apexi EL gauges neatly arranged on top of the dash.
Image
Carbon fiber detailing always looks so good against a white body, items like the RE-Amemiya front canards and the Craft Square mirrors.
Image
Here is Miguel driving the car up and down the docks for the benefit of the camera. No he didn't drift around, contrary to what some movies may imply, that kind of stuff doesn't go on in Japan as all docks are continuously patrolled by security!
Image
The Vatman GT-wing has a nice wavy lower section, said to improve straight speed Stability. The wing stays are adjustable so you can dial in the amount of downforce you require.
Image
The FD sits on HKS adjustable suspension, which Miguel had to raise up to its highest setting shortly after these pictures were taken so it could be safely moved onto the ship without damaging the aero parts.  The owner will be completing the car once it lands in the UK with a few more modifications like an aero hood, full Bride bucket seats and more engine parts to make it perfect for when Rotorstock 2011 rolls around.
