That's hot. Maybe I'm a ricer at heart, but I really like it. The platform is one of my favorite from Japan. If you took the Flags off and I'd drive it on the road. LOL, and I usually bash these things.

Half of professional racing is the part about winning. The other half is to have a car that stands out, in hopes to score new sponsorships, or to advertise for your current sponsors. You think Mark Martin really thinks his NASCAR Ford is badass with Viagra written across the hood?

Except this isn't a racecar (obviously) it's their showcar for SEMA. As far as I can tell the only racing involvement they have other than a few sponserships is an event they host, which a WRX is currently leading.

So what your saying is that this King Motorsport or Mugen is just a wanna be race car team or what ever you call them?

Correct me if I am misunderstanding this one!

You've misunderstood. Mugen = Mopar = AMG, etc. They wholly owned by Honda.

King Motorsports is a retail company, trying to sell their stuff. And thus, they have a show car.

BTW, King did sponsor some Grand Am cars a couple years ago iirc, and they're kinda in and out of Speed WC.

edit: must learn engrish... :oops:

Look, I'm not a big fan of the stickers but that car is nice.

And lets be honest here kids, stickers? do you really care about stickers?

If they let me drive it for the weekend they could put "I LOVE BOYS" on the back in big red letters. I'd still be driving with a big grin on my face, and you know running from big guys in trucks with bats. :eek:h:
