    Default MX5 Hot Rod from Japan, TAS 2014

    Just when you think that the Kawashima Celica's new look is pretty crazy, WIZ from Japan go an create something like this for the Tokyo Auto Salon.

    I looked more into this car to see if I can find more information about it.
    The car is actually made by Engineering students of WIZ International Institute of Technology University.
    WIZ has been displaying student projects at the Tokyo Auto Salon every year since 2007













































    And here are some of the other props that were used in their TAS display using recycle car parts.

    I do agree on the power aspect, kinda expected it to have a V8 swap. But I'd still have it in a heartbeat.

    Exposed timing belt scares me (even though I doubt it would be driven like that). Everything else is so freaking badass!
