Kaido GX71

NZ Performance Car - - Power Plant -

Per­haps the most eye-catch­ing of the lot was Matt Jor­dan’s kaido racer GX71. Matt is a world-renowned ar­ti­san tattooist by trade, so it came as no sur­prise that when he turned his in­ter­est to build­ing a slammed-out, shark-nosed Mark II, it would look ev­ery bit as though it had just landed from the moth­er­land. To achieve that look, Matt tasked GT Refin­ish­ers with creat­ing a cus­tom shark-nose bon­net–and–guard combo that elon­gates the front end to gnarly pro­por­tions. It sits over a set of SSR MK-III wheels, and uses cus­tom coilovers and strut tow­ers by Quest Fab­ri­ca­tion, mak­ing for a ‘con­ser­va­tive’ one-inch static ride height. And, what would a kaido GX be without the quin­tes­sen­tial rasp of a straight-piped 1G?!
