M7 Honda Civic - OMG! Nobuteru Taniguchi Drives A Civic?

You would think being the mac-pimp-player that he is, Nobuteru Taniguchi would never be caught in a four-door Civic.

Oct 15, 2010

You would think being the mac-pimp-player that he is, Nobuteru Taniguchi would never be caught in a four-door Civic. From piloting record breaking HKS time-attack cars, to driving Super GT cars, to drifting, he's become one of the most known faces in Japanese racing. Somehow, M7 of Japan got him into the new Civic where he took first place in the One Make Race.

The One Make Race is a race that includes only one type of car, and Japan has several of these races for many different cars. In this event all the cars were the current Civic sedan chassis. To make the playing field even more even, the cars are very limited to engine modifications. All racecars are nearly the same in power and weight, and driver input and chassis tuning are the key ingredients to winning. M7 is a rather new company in Japan, but the owner has been a huge player in Japanese tuning for decades. Let's just say Taniguchi is just one of the many well known Japanese racers that M7 has in their stable. That's some major JDM pull.
