CURT HICKS’ MAZDA RX-7
You may have already seen Curt Hicks’ teal coloured creation either lapping Castle Combe circuit or doing the rounds on Instagram and Facebook. Either way, the car has generated its fair share of celebrity in the Japanese car scene, and why not! Built at home in his shed, Curt has created a Mazda mash-up of Rocket Bunny and RE Amemiya kits with a huge Voltex wing that’s simply stuning. But it’s not all show and no go, as under the eye-popping paintwork is hiding a street-ported engine with nonsequential twin turbos and 3in pipework and exhaust system and mapped by rotary gurus Hayward Rotary. And it can use all the extra grunt, too, as Curt has also equipped his radical ride with HSD coilovers and sticky Advan AO48 tyres!
MOHAMMAD HUSSAIN’S MITSUBISHI EVO
Mohammad bought his searing yellow Evo V last year. It was standard back then, but he has since installed a host of carbon-fibre parts including side skirts, rear spats, an exhaust heat shield, and high level spoiler blade. He’s also swapped the stock rims for a set of 9x18in Rota Force Drift alloys and the exhaust system for a much more roarty full Blitz Nur Spec item including turbo downpipe. The power has been increased to 380bhp and has necessitated the use of an Exedy twin plate clutch.
