ARC Evolution X

Snapped this earlier this year at the new ARC HQ close to Fuji. This new demo car sports the latest products from the ARC catalogue. Open the bonnet and you are met with an extremely colorful engine bay thanks to the intercooler piping and strut brace, all made from titanium. Helping make the far too grown up feeling Evo X a bit more responsive is the ARC air-box and exhaust system while the ARC intercooler takes care of cooling the intake charge.  

Big ORC brakes have found a home within the Advan RS chrome wheels

Titanium exhaust

Nice pair of Bride racing bucket seats have replaced the high sitting Recaros

And in front of the factory instrumentation a Defi Super Sports Cluster has been fitted

And a couple of driving shots taken in the rain.  This is a shoot I will never forget as I spent the whole day snapping away with a nice 38º fever!

    Any idea what the latest is on those DSSC? Are they actually selling them to the public yet or are they all still only available to select workshops?

    Been wanting one of these for my car for ages, but could never figure out a way to get one down here.

    This is just as exciting as the “GTR race”. Looking forward to the show down.

    Bugger, what a pain. And I heard also that the workshop has an agreement with Defi that only they are able to do the install. So buying from the shop and having it shipping down here is out of the question?
