NZPC 193: Go out and grab one

November 26th, 2012 by Marcus

1.2-litres of twin rotor fury graces the cover of issue 193 of New Zealand Performance Car magazine in the form of Glenn Huijs new Pro Import Mazda FC RX-7. Built to chase down Tony Markovina’s 12A powered record of 8.66@246kph, this is one seriously good looking race car with the mechanical credentials to back it up


We sit down with Brad and Matt Lauder for the inside word on their two Shred Motorsport/WAL Engineering S-Chassis Nissans.

With a new home for the 4&Rotary Supershow at Mt Smart Stadium and the first NZ Extreme Games in attendance, it was all go earlier this month – we cover all the action, automotive and otherwise at this cool new venue.

West Aucklander Nate Langton takes us for a ride in his very rare Montrose Mazda 626. You won’t believe the story behind this car. Stolen, Recovered and then built to street car perfection over 10 long years.

Engine bays don’t come much sweeter than that of Dean Curtis’s Mark II Ford Escort, an inch perfect replica of Hannu Mikkola’s 1979 Monte Carlo World Champion machine.

Head honcho from J Tune Automotive Jacky Tse is at it again, this time he has built a DC5 Honda Integra rocking a 220kW K24A and a Buddy Club ATCS/WTCC wide body – the only one of it’s kind in the country. Built to compete in both Motul Honda Cup Unlimited Class and time attack, its a pure FWD monster.

We also have all the best coverage from the opening round of Cody’s D1NZ. The good, the rad and the insane from SEMA 2012, And the opening round of the NAC Insurance Night Speed Dragwars, as well as all our regular homegrown content.
