Another special exhibit will be the RWB (RAUH-Welt-Begriff) Porsche 930. The car is owned by RWB founder and renowned Porsche tuner Akira Nakai of Japan. The 930 features and RWB wide body kit, KW coil over suspension, Recaro racing seats, Takata harnesses and Work New Mesh 18-inch wheels shod with Toyo Proxes R888 tires.
Also making it debut is the all-wheel-drive Kontrabrands 2014 Lexus IS built by Gordon Ting. The urban road machine resembles a competition touring car and features a TRD five piece aero kit, massive Brembo brakes, a Sparco interior and Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tires.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray could not be ignored, so the Toyo Tires main display will feature the P58 Concept Stringray by Michigan-based design house TZD. The 580hp show car sports a TZD aero package, carbon fiber motorsports-style rear wing plus 20-inch front and 21-inch rear Vossen Monoblock wheels with Proxes T1R ultrahigh performance tires.
