I’ll always have a soft spot for M3s.

Nissan GT-R R35

The SpecV styled intakes on the lip are a nice touch and the dark Gun Metal Grey wheels are menacing.

Like most GT-Rs round here, their owners know how to treat them…

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI RSII Tommi Makinen Edition
Franciacorta Prove Libere 2011.08.06
First time seeing one of these as their fairly rare. The WRC themed livery might be a bit much for some as they were also available in a few standard colours, but apparently the only ones present in Italy have this colour scheme. Fortunately the RSII is available in LHD and also comes with 17″ alloy wheels, rear AYC Differential and various other improvements to suspension setup and engine performance.
With engine torque improved over the already good standard version, 1300kg and super-short gear ratios this thing must be a bomb.

The owner opted for similar Speedline Corse wheels.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS 997, a popular weapon of choice round here.

The colour schemes on these RSes are simply awesome.

J-SPEC PERF Evolutions

Franciacorta Prove Libere 2011.08.06

I headed over to Franciacorta yesterday to soak in some evening track day action, although slightly quieter than usual there were plenty of great cars.
These two white Evos hailed from Switzerland’s J-SPEC PERF shop and it seems like many Swiss make the trip over to Italian track day events.

The Evo X is the official shop car and has some tasteful aero parts and very beefy VOLK CE28N with Toyo R888 Semis. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to see it run.

SSR Type-C wheels were a good choice.
