Assembled a randomly found second hand purchases for a shoot, and could not help but draw in the connection with the insanely popular game.

R34 sans spoiler is just incredible.

R34 sans spoiler is just incredible.

All three cars have a significant bit of usage history etched into their bodywork. All are missing the door mirrors, and the two cars with separate spoilers have lost them over time, helping to improve the power : weight ratio.

The Z - Tune has the best bodywork overall (and it was a delight to see an R34 GT-R sans the spoiler), but the wheels are not so willing to roll. No such problems for the 400R and the A70. The A70, which could have had a very comfortable life inside a display case, or the warmth of its original packaging, seems to have spent a very harsh life outside. I wish Takara Tomy could do a new release of the casting, as the prices of pristine pre - owned examples are through the roof now.

For those who are seeking context to the title, and has no clue, the A70 2.0 GT Twin Turbo is actually missing a key element in its roof: The unmarked patrol car beacon. This variant of the A70 casting was an homage to the car that appeared in Japanese crime drama Taiyo Ni Hoeru.

White was the impostor.

There was another loose car hanging around so decided to bring that to the table as well.
