In a recent Hot Version video, the gang takes a pack of highly tuned cars to the Maou Touge. However, rather than the standard Honda S2000 and WRX STI models, this time they are modified versions of old school RWD compacts.
Technically, the S2000 isn’t completely absent, as an F20C lives on underneath the hood both old school cars. The first is a a very purpose-built (read: ratty) Nissan B310 Sunny whose bodywork is skimpier than the woman in the cat outfit, whose VTEC four has been supercharged to 270PS. The other is a KP61 Starlet whose S2000 motor keeps the spirit of the original with a naturally aspirated 250PS.
Sadly, the two never go head to head, but they still show some serious touge prowess, where handling in a lightweight car is more important than MOAR POWAH. In Part 02, a 5AG-powered Corolla Levin shows why the AE86 is still a mountain champ 30 years after its introduction.
