|Front airdam and front splitter by Afterhours Automotive.
|The splitter is race car functional and can take a load without sagging or bending.
|The vented carbon hood, carbon doors and carbon rear hatch are by Seibon.
Kono first styled the kit on the car using Styrofoam and bondo. When the shape was right he made a mold of the parts directly off the car. This first mold was used to make a plug from which the production mold was formed. The real fenders were made from this mold. Kono also built the front airdam and splitter, all of which are fully functional and correctly mounted unlike your typical carpet queen show car.
|The widebody fenders and side skirts look good with the aggressive fitment of the Motegi wheels.
|This was a very early shot of the prototype fender that served as a plug for the molds. The parts that are currently on the car are vented and fully functional.
|Even with the aggressive kit, there is no doubt that this is an AE86. The stock lines are preserved very well.
Seibon supplied the carbon doors, hatch and hood with APR being tapped for the adjustable carbon fiber GT-300 rear wing. Custom lexan windows were fitted for light weight by Afterhours Automotive. Finally the body was slathered in a custom mix of red with orange pearl PPG catalyzed urethane paint by Bob Cunningham with graphics done by Spin Imaging.

Currently Motegi is using the car to showcase its wheels on this show worthy but race oriented machine. In the future they plan to use the car in time attack and they are also eying Redline’s MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Challenge race series as a venue to let the car do what it was built to do, go fast on the track.

If you would like to see the car in person, it’s next appearance will be at ToyotaFest on May 14th next to the Queen Mary in Long Beach.
