FRESHLY WHIPPED AT HAMPTON DOWNS: RALLY NZ HIGH OCTANE – PARK UP

For the final installment of our coverage of High Octane at Hampton showcases the variety of cars that were parked around the infield on the day. An interesting and large variety of cars were to be found.

One of the oldest Civics I have seen is this 1977 model. The ’96 Type R Integra rims worked well with a car over 20 years their senior.

At a glance I wasn’t so sure on BBS style wheels on a Japanese Supercar, but the idea has now grown on me and I particularly like what the owner has done with his GTR.

The grey and black colour scheme works well on this Integra, along with it’s aftermarket hood which reminds me very much of the old NFS Underground days.

Although not painted in the infamous Panda two-tone style this Trueno was still an eye catcher.

Not seen very often, the black body and green rim look is a favourite here at Freshly Whipped. Keep an eye out for more on this car in the future.

My jaw dropped when I saw this Ferrari F40 turn up. One of last true supercars to be made without electronic aids. A real drivers car.

This RX-8 fooled me for thinking it was a Mazda 3 with it’s facelift. Not sure if it is just me, but the front of this car looks like it’s smiling.

If you look closely the passenger has a massive grin on their face, and why not when you are cruising around in this immaculate Jeep Patriot.

The Porsche 911 is a living motorsport legend. This example with it’s Gulf Le Mans livery is an all time classic.

This third and final part concludes our coverage of High Octane at Hampton. Great work Rally NZ for putting on such an awesome all round day.
