In this issue of NZ Performance Car:
It’s been a long time coming, but we finally tear the skin off the only six-second 13B in Australasia — the Abbott brothers’ FD RX-7. If you’re not familiar with the car, here’s a look at the team’s video from their record-breaking run.
Wheelman and fabricator extraordinaire Graeme Smyth has completed his meticulous 13B bridge-port FD RX-7 that we checked out mid build in 2015. The finished product is certainly second to none.
This issue we pay tribute to Chris Amon — one of our country’s best wheelmen — who passed away this month, aged 73. While you may know of his time spent in F1, he was also an accomplished tin-top racer.
The team at Rattla Motorsport have completed their new monster — a Shelby GT500, aka Mustang, that we took a look at earlier in the build. Now complete with a 1000Nm naturally aspirated Ford small block — yip, it's a tyre-killer.
While I was unable to do what Ken Block did here, as I value my licence, I was able to put the all-new Ford Focus through its paces the only way I know how, and that's to thrash the living snot out of it. Performance car of 2016? Best you have a read and see what I had to say.
