In the world of aftermarket tuning there’s no denying that smoothed, lowered and stanced is definitely the ‘look’ to go for right now. But over the past few years we’ve noticed a huge resurgence for crazy bodykits and super-wide arches, all courtesy of one man – Kei Miura aka Rocket Bunny Japan.
It’s impossible not to love Miura-san’s wild creations. By taking inspiration from classic race cars and applying them to newer models (including the Subaru BRZ and Nissan GT-R), Miura-san has once again popularised riveted arches and duckbill spoilers – selling his unique style to enthusiasts all around the world.
But Miura-san’s bodykits aren’t just about the style – look a bit closer and you’ll notice every design has performance in mind, providing additional cooling for big-power engines and extra track width for super-sticky track tyres. Look even closer and you’ll notice a KW sticker on just about every Rocket Bunny creation – Miura-san loves to drive fast, and no other coilover gives you the performance like KW!
The latest creation from the Rocket Bunny stable is the Mazda FD3S RX7, a Japanese icon now celebrating its 22nd birthday. Mazda officially stopped production back in 2002, but its unique rotary engine has created a massive following worldwide – so much so that it still remains one of the most-popular tuner cars in Japan, America and Australia.
Comprising of a new front bumper, side skirts, front/rear overfenders and ‘Ducktail’ spoiler it’s safe to say the Rocket Bunny RX7 is going to look seriously cool – reminiscent of the classic Bonneville Salt Flat Racers from the early 90s. With a 50/50 weight distribution and a kerb weight of just 1265kg, the 260bhp RX7 has serious performance even in standard trim. Match that with our Variant 3 coilover upgrade and the result is truly spectacular! Watch this space…
