GReddy Vehicle Highlights from 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon

    Another successful showing for the TRUST/GReddy Team! (Part 1 - Booth Vehicles)

The new year brings big new from GReddy!  At the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon we had a great display and huge new announcements for the future of the brand.  (See our next blog entry for the new GReddy product additions for 2014)

TRUST President, Masaru Ikeda revealed the GReddy R35 RX Spec D-Concept GT-R and the return of TRUST/GReddy to D1 Grand Prix competition with 2007 & 2013 D1GP Series Champion, Masato Kawabata and the Team Toyo Drift.

The GReddy D-Concept GT-R also won GReddy's 2nd TAS Best Concept Car Award (the GReddy RX35 GT-R won this in 2012) 

Special Thanks to our aero partner Rocket Bunny for the aggressive GTR aero.     - For large format desktops and additional information on the D-Concept GT-S see this Speedhunters.com feature. (http://www.speedhunters.com/2014/01/forget-4wd-trust-drift/

Displayed next to the GT-R was the newly revised TRUST/GReddy Time Attack Turbo FR-S, with it's new modified Rocket Bunny aero and retro-GReddy Racing livery. The 505ps / 66.6kgm turbocharged FA20-powered FR-S recently ran a 58"740 sec at Tsukuba Circuit with Time Attack ace, Eji "Tarzan" Yamada, making it one of the quickest ZN6 cars to lap the famous track.

Two more TAS crowd pleasing vehicles in the GReddy booth were the joint projects; BenSopra's new Z33 aero kit and Mr Miura's Rocket Bunny Ver2 with the optional DAI Edition canard set. (more info to come on both kits in the coming weeks...)
