This slightly vintage BMW was not modified for going to the wine country. Well, perhaps it could at an elevated pace.
Wilwood brakes with slotted 2-piece rotors help the car slow down for the many twists and turns found on the roads in the area.
A couple vintage prancing horses were also in attendance. Alongside one of the red cars was a modified Japanese creature from Toyota rival Nissan. I guess the only comparable car Toyota has is the LFA and it costs three times as much, so this guy probably didn’t get fired for owning a GT-R.
What Toyota does have currently for a performance car is the FR-S.
This one was outfitted with a Rotrex blower kit from Jackson Racing for a bit more go. It appears to have an oil cooler installed also judging by the sandwich plate underneath the oil filter. Adding an oil cooler to a car that will be driven hard and/or makes significantly more power than stock is always a good idea. Remember, reliability is key.
This FR-S was built much to my liking. Grip is handled by the well-known Enkei RPF-1s wrapped in sticky Hankook RS-3s. Repetitive stopping duties are handled by the TRD big brake upgrade kit with slotted 2-piece rotors.
The only apparent power modification is a TRD intake system. The more interesting modification consists of a pair of adjustable pillow ball mount camber plates from Ground Control. The owner premarked camber settings for -3.3 and -4.6 degrees of camber for track work.
