Mazda FD3S RX-7 - Redefining Custom

The largest Super Autobacs in Osaka Tailored this RX-7 Perfectly to Its Owner

Jonathon Wong
Mar 6, 2007

While most shops only do what a customer asks and pays for, the Super Autobacs Sunshine Kobe takes a different approach and builds the car around the customer's personality. Yusuke Takeda, an actual employee of this particular Autobacs, received this treatment, resulting in a show car that's fast and fully functional-even while maintaining the stock air conditioning and catalytic converter. So what moves the custom 13B? It's a combination of bolt-ons from HKS and RE Amemiya with tuning made possible through an F-CON SA. The FD's also dressed to kill with aggressive styling bits from the house of Amemiya. The big local wheel producer, RAYS Engineering, made sure a set of their G-Games 77W wheels were in place. All in all, Yusuke's RX-7 could be the ultimate example of customer service done right.
