We haven’t posted many feature cars recently and its something that we feel quite sheepish about. In the middle of our day jobs, our after-work lives, our aim to shift our website to a better host with a more updated and user friendly layout and our constant search for opportunities to host events for the Singapore car community, we haven’t been taking the time out of our personal lives to search and organize photo shoots for new feature cars.
Our Facebook page however has been absolutely amazing and we can’t express how much we appreciate the love everyone that has liked our page has shown, constantly commenting and sharing the photos we post. We knew the Facebook page was going to hit a milestone of 500,000 likes soon and we wanted to at least have a feature on the website for your viewing pleasure. So we spent 6 hours of our Saturday night driving around searching for locations, getting shouted at by a Caucasian male who thought our cars were too loud while we were adjusting the positions and wetting our pants when we had to drive through a road block during a change of location.
The feature Evo in this post is owned by one of the most supportive friends that has been supporting TheRightWrong from the very beginning. His car was actually one of the first few cars we featured on the site but has recently undergone a complete make over. Unfortunately, he has made the difficult decision to put the car up for sale and we could not let the car get sold before giving it a final photo shoot.
The other Civic you see is owned by our very talented photographer, Neo. His civic which is heavily inspired by the many race civics from around the world sports a custom widebody and custom front bumper. You’ll be seeing more of this car sometime in the near future.
Retiring the 17 inch Advan RG2s for track use, the Evo now sits on 18 inch Volk Racing TE37SLs, 9.5JJ + 22. The exterior has also seen a tad more carbon fiber compared to his previous look.
The entire car has actually been refreshed despite the similar look. A fresh coat of paint, an entirely rebuilt engine with all new parts after the previous one showed some signs of wear.
Exterior has also been updated with a Varis version 2 front bumper, side skirts with a Varis bonnet.
Interior however has remained mostly unchanged except for a new personal steering wheel.
Despite a similar looking engine bay and exterior, almost everything on the car has been completely refreshed and replaced. Such meticulous care for a car would definitely make the new owner of the car a very happy and lucky man and we will definitely be sad to see this car part hands.
We thank you all for your continuous support once again and hope that all of you are looking forward to seeing more feature cars from Japan, as our photographer RandyF has recently made the trip for the Tokyo Auto Salon and visited countless workshops!
