Wow it feels like an eternity since I’ve sat down to drop a cool feature, work commitments have really eaten up a few hectic months of my life but one could have worst complaints, given my brief absence I felt what I came back with would have to be something altogether a little special, a little unique, well thanks to Mr.Kazama and Paul Kane, we bring you just that !
Enter on Que 1 No. Kazama built special Nissan s15, churning out no less that 450 horses may I add, but really what does that mean, 450bhp? Well for me at least in Ireland it’s difficult to emphasis how much power that is for a road legal driveable car, I feel we have been sucked in and created this blase approach to power figures where 300bhp is just a standardish car, spoiled with the riches of a Celtic tiger and the packed ships of high powered RWD cars that followed from Japan. To try put it into perspective, this car produces as much power as a Porsche 911 GT3RS, it produces a whole 100bhp more than say an E46 BMW M3, that might aswell be a VW Golf , ok so we get the idea, this car is packing the punch to meet its hardcore Japanese styling.
Right away I can tell, you will either completely love this car or you will cringe at the thought of all that beautiful gear in that body, however I think all special cars are a bit like that, otherwise they would just be the same as every other subtly styled car I imagine.
Subtle S15 lines are ditched for some hardcore edges which comes in the form of the Promode body parts which have been fitted.
Dark, moody edgy, this car has some serious attitude.
The quality of the body work is flawless, you can see even from these shots above how good the over fenders match up with the front bumper.
A quick glimpse underneath the bonnet and you can instantly tell this car has all the right ingredients.
The car sits on these awesome chrome Volk GTV rims, only complimented further by an awesome set of Grex 6 pot stoppers.
As if the hardcore graphics weren’t enough we see even more signs of Japanese culture tagged on the front window.
The co-pilot at any given time is treated to the responsibility of ensuring all is good under the hood via an array of Greddy gauges mounted in the dashboard.
The driver just get’s one, Paul get’s it hard enough to keep the back wheels on the road with that aggressive Cusco two way differential without any further distractions.
More business as usual on the inside, matching Recaros, Works Bell snap off wheel, and much more.
The car, remains unchanged since is importation a few years ago, it stills carries the names of famous tuners Kazama and vehicle exporters Powervehicles, like many of Powervehicles cars, this particular car was imported by WKD Imports from Co.Carlow.
I leave you with my closing shots, as always I hope you enjoyed, special thanks to Paul Kane for allowing us to shoot his ride, Paul is selling his car, opportunites to buy a car like this are a rare thing these days, inquiries to;
