One of the biggest talked about cars of Wekfest San Jose belonged to James at Floss Design and his Nissan S13 build. The car was finished in Los Angeles just hours before it was loaded up on the trailer north to the Bay. While we've been seeing plenty of Rocket Bunny-kitted S13s popping up around the world, the fit and finish of Floss' build is second to none. Every seal, bushing, screw and any other piece of hardware you can think of was replaced. The engine bay, interior and body are also flawless — you won't find another S-chassis build as mint as this right now. The color is Signal green taken from the Porsche GT3 — something very few S13 owners would even imagine on their car (although we can sort of relate as our Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S was painted Porsche PPG Speed yellow. Wink, wink.)
As for Floss' wheels, he's known for rebuilding the very best, so you'll find a set of staggered 18" BBS E88. The wheels probably cost more than the car itself but it's the type of quality Floss wanted for this build. We can't argue either, as it's the same wheels on our very own Ratchet Bunny FR-S.
The bay is semi-shaved with an SR20DET swap. Floss tells us it uses ARP hardware and the head is slightly rebuilt. Stay tuned for bigger turbo in the near future.
Inside the S13, you'll notice a right-hand drive conversion, Seibon carbon-Kelvar seats and a stripped out floor 'n roof that's been cleaned and painted to match.
The stripped-out rear is equally clean with a spare BBS E88 as a showpiece, as well as an Autopower cage that's been modified and painted.
You really have to see this build in person to truly appreciate how dope it is. Sure anyone can install a Rocket Bunny kit or repaint a car, but it's all the little details that make this car something special and one of the top cars at Wekfest San Jose.
