Southern Cross – The finished product

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you RWB Australia #1 – ‘Southern Cross’.  Without a doubt, another stunning creation by Nakai-san.  I have lost track of how many RWB Porsches I have seen in real life, but one thing I will admit is that this ranks right up there with my all time favourites.

Southern Cross – RWB Australia #1 Day Three

As we strolled into the workshop this morning there was a slightly different aura in the air, it was a bittersweet moment.  Today the RWB Australia build was to come to a conclusion, it wouldn’t be long and the southern hemisphere would finally have it’s very own RWB.

Southern Cross – RWB Australia #1 Day Two

As the sun crept in through the windows again early Friday morning, it was time to make my way back towards Auto Racing Technik.  En-route I had been stopping off at this amazing little Greek breakfast cafe, bright smiles, and fantastic coffee meant every day started off just perfectly.

Southern Cross – RWB Australia #1 Day One

I must admit it was strange sitting in a workshop with Nakai-san at 8:00am, coffee in hand, and waiting to start building.  Nakai-san doesn’t start anything back home before 12pm.  There is a golden rule at RWB – don’t show up before lunchtime.  There should be a sign on the door that states working hours are 12pm-4am.

Southern Cross – RWB Australia #1 Preview

RAUH-Welt Begriff has forged a status in the automotive world based on passion, inspiration and a pinch of ‘I don’t care what you think’.  Nakai-san embodies tortured artist, devout petrol head and is a man of few words, the mysterious eyes as dark as the oil stains on his hands.  With cars that polarise opinion unlike any other on earth, as soon as I heard my good friend was headed for Aussie, I booked myself a ticket to Melbourne.

Blogroll – Day 1

That feeling of walking through immigration and into the arrivals hall at Narita airport is a refreshing one.  After 6 years calling this place home it is always good to come back.  This time round I have a few buddies in tow with me for the trip. While we were waiting on the last one to fly in I decided to kick back and relax in Narita.

Diamond in the RAUH

Improving on perfection is not an easy thing to do, particularly in the cut-throat tuning world. On the outskirts of Tokyo, one man had a vision, to take something that many feel couldn’t be improved on, ignored the stereotypes and did just that – perfected it.
