From a long time subscriber of the magazine, who was sad to see it go, I'm really happy to see Modified beginning a return in video format!

Proof that a proper Honda build knows no borders Once upon a time, any sort of engine-swapped ’88 to ’91-bodied Civic remained bound by the regions of the greater Los Angeles area. ZC engine transplants by way of fourth-generation Civic hatchbacks happened infrequently, and any sort of engine robbed from any second-generation Integra and stuffed inside one of those bays was even more unexpected. The pursuit of the engine swap was an elusive one, limited mostly to

I have seen nicely tuned cars in Bangkok. This is a very nice example.

[]Sebastian Nounou

Fantastic build and direction. I’m about it.

[]Michael Langshaw

Another sweet ride. Great work, keep it going my friend

[]Chris Dirkschneider

Very nice write-up and photography!

[]Mister Modtomic

What an AMAZING article! Was this shot and written JUST for Wheelwell, because this smacks of Old School print tuner magazine quality. Great job and I (for one) would LOVE to see more like this on Wheelwell.

[]Mister Modtomic

...oh, duh. Guess I should have read who posted this! Still, THIS is what we ALL should be striving towards here!

[]Joost Van Dien

Great read and a nice build. Not over the top, clean and fast!

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Fantastic article! Very clean execution, and I appreciate the highlighting of car culture from distant lands. Thank you!

[]Kit Lau

Great post, always love see a clean ride like this when the mods are all put together so neatly.

Perhaps Long Beach was making up for the partial rainout of last year’s Formula DRIFT season opener, but they came out in masses this year, and almost all toughed it out to the bitter end. For attending, crowds were treated to a fantastic show and when cars weren’t sliding around Turns 9, 10, and 11 of the Grand Prix street course there was plenty else to see and do away from the bleachers. These events tend to be hubs

Finally, Lexus is giving the F Sport treatment to its flagship sedan. The 2018 Lexus LS500 F Sport will debut next week at the New York Auto Show. In the teaser photo Lexus released today, the performance-oriented model looks pretty much identical to the regular LS, except for the F Sport badging. Although there's not much to notice in the rear, the model should receive a unique grille and racing-inspired interior like other F Sport vehicles in the

Can't wait for the reveal!

I'll take 2.

The plan going in was simple: Buy a new, fun project car like the Scion FR-S and make more power. However, somewhere along the way, a change in plans takes place. A simple streetcar can snowball into something more glorious than what you could have ever imagined. Thanh Duc Giang, aka Twig, never dreamed his car would turn out this way, but last fall he had the opportunity to team up with Mark Arcenal of the Fatlace empire to

Beautiful 86. You have done everything right on your car. Would love to be able to add a supercharger to mine. Do you think you will ever sell this car?

Forget the LaFerrari, P1, Regera, and 918. The real hybrid hypercars are those fielded in the World Endurance Championship. Here, both Toyota and Porsche dominate with their respective entries. Drastically different in terms of power units, these two teams want to challengeeach other in the most grueling endurance races ever devised, including the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans. And with the first race just around the corner—April 15 at Silverstone—both teams have released their 2017 race cars, detailing

Nothing to see here – just Super Street Editor-in-Chief Sam Du and Video Producer Max Frauchiger catching some random Toyota 86 ripping a smoky figure-8 on the street. Except this is no normal 86 (video contains some NSFW language). For more from Super Street in Japan for TAS 2016:

After hours drifting with Super Street, in country for the Tokyo Auto Salon 2016.

This car is the first ND chassis Mazda MX-5 to rock the new Pandem widebody kit designed by Kei Miura of TRA Kyoto. Under the arches are RAYS TE37V wheels measuring 16x8-inches up front and 16x9.5-inches in the rear. This car is ridiculously slammed but Greddy tells us it’s on their suspension using stiff 5kg front and 3kg rear spring rates. Inside, you’ll notice the Bride VIOS III seats with Prodrive harnesses as well as a new prototype boost
