  • Team Japspeed 1JZ Powered Subaru Impreza WRX STI

    The Japspeed Subaru Impreza was (and still is) a pioneer for the UK drift scene and has been frequently referred to as one of the most innovative drift car builds in Europe throughout the last few years. Headline facts include a Toyota 1JZ powerplant, Quaife sequential gearbox and a Nissan front and rear suspension setup. The car was piloted by the internationally revered Brett Castle throughout the 2013 season and is being fully rebuilt from the ground up for the 2014 season, ready to be debuted at the 2014 Autosport International Show.

  • Team Japspeed 1.5JZ Powered Nissan S15 Silvia

    Paul Smith and his beloved S15 have been through it all, yet they have always managed to come out on top. After switching to the 1JZ Toyota powerplant Paul and his Silvia have been a force to be reckoned with, clinching the 2012 Maxxis British Drift Championship title in 2012. After winning round 1 of the 2013 season the car underwent a number of changes, including the use of a 2JZ engine block in order to build the engine up as a 1.5JZ.

  • Team Japspeed RB25 Powered Nissan S15 Silvia

    Our RB25DET powered S15 Silvia has become a firm favourite with the fans over the years thanks to its wild soundtrack and even wilder on track antics. While the soundtrack can be linked to the six cylinder lump and screamer pipe routed out the bonnet, the driving styly can be accredited to the man behind the wheel, Shane O'Sullivan.

    Shane has risen through the ranks in the drift scene in his native Ireland over the years and is highly regarded as a force to be reckoned with on track. He recently captured 2nd place in the 2013 Irish Drift Championship and finished his season in style by qualifying 1st at the final round of the 2013 Maxxis British Drift Championship, held at Knockhill.

  • Team Japspeed 2JZ Powered Lexus IS200

    Upon its release the Lexus IS200 was praised for its excellent balance and nstral handling, thanks in part to its front engined, rear wheel drive setup. The only part that was lacking was what was under the bonnet, so what better than to chuck a twin turbo 2JZ from a Toyota Supra in there instead!?

    Our IS200 has seen frequent use throughout 2013 as part of numerous demonstrations (including Autosport International and Car Fest) as well as competition use in the hands of Brett Castle and Formula D's Ryan Tuerck when he visited the UK to compete in the BDC. Throughout the year the car has proven to be highly reliable and, with the addition of suspension components from FIGs Engineering during the summer, has become a formidable track weapon.
