FRESHLY WHIPPED @ SPEEDSHOW 2012

Onto another year and another Speedshow we go. With the show packing out the Greenlane ASB Showgrounds, it offers a range of cars and speed orientated items including trade stands.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nClassic Subaru rally cars will always be adored in NZ with most car enthusiasts knowing of Possum Bourne in one way or another.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Mini stand seemed to have a great selection including this possibly Rally inspired Cooper.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAll I can think of looking at this photo is how fun it would be to drift around a go cart track..\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThere was also a selection of new cars such as this BMW.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWe don’t really get to see many Vipers in NZ, so to see one here is quite the neat sight for us.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nKenny from SBPNZ looked slightly under the weather upon being grabbed by Kat Benson..\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMazda had done a few of their smaller cars up in notable liveries for the event too.. This Mazda 3 had a 787B style livery while the one to the right behind it was a more Finding Nemo style..\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nGTR NZ had a few of their racers out such as this Corvette..\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis Fiesta was all wrapped up like Kenny from the Block’s and it’s a pretty damn cool promo car.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSky Zhao had his 570Z out on display. That big V8 is going to sound great up against the other couple of V8′s in D1NZ. NZ still hasn’t converted to a majority of V8′s like other nations.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nOn the topic of V8′s this classic hot rod was packing more than expected under the hood..\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAlthough awesome to look at, these still make me sad knowing they’re the last rotary production car.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis classic was surely standing out from the crowd. Would love to hear its 350 V8 light up.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis thing is said to have something around 800+hp and is RWD with a V8 in it? I’ve never seen it going but damn it looks tough.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAfter seeing many photos of these 300C’s online I was not impressed by the new design.. After seeing it in real life my whole view changed. They’re a damn cool looking car.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAnd last but not least as I was trawling through traffic coming back this RX8 passed me, and with the traffic coming to a halt I was able to quickly snap a pic! Dope car.\r\n\r\nSadly I had to leave early before the drift demo’s.\r\n\r\nCheck out more info here on the CRC Speedshow.\r\n\r\n-Chris

    That Honda has a sprint car engine in it and is owned by the boss at Honda Cars Pukekohe and the Viper…..ACR (American Club Racing), not just any Viper – 7.12.13 around Nürburgring Nordschleife.
