CAR­BON FEAST

NZ Performance Car - - Issue Review Back Month Next Nzpc -

With a price tag of a quar­ter of a mil­lion New Zealand dol­lars, this RE Amemiya–built 20B FD was about as wild as an FD came in 2008 — even by to­day’s stan­dards, it is pretty out there. It rocked a com­plete RE Amemiya SPL wet car­bon kit with Porsche head­light con­ver­sion, and the car­bon even ex­tended to any ex­te­rior steel pan­els on the chas­sis. The Cosmo 20B was pretty run-of-the-mill, but the twin GReddy TD06-25Gs gave the en­gine bay a some­what stock look. It made 522kW at the wheels, and we have no idea how the stock FD box held up, es­pe­cially with talk of 300-kilo­me­tre-per-hour Wan­gan runs.
