Farewell Ueno

D1 driver Ueno has decided to retire his infamous JZZ30 Soarer, aka Lexus SC300, which started the next wave of fandom in the U.S. But unlike the Lexus it's equipped with the highly regarded 2JZ-GTE twin turbo engine. But don't think he's going retire himself, or jump the on the bandwagon with a Nissan S-chassis. There's already another car in the works. But it's not coming from the land of the rising sun. Can you say Fahrvergn├╝gen, yes it's coming from deutschland. That's Germany for those who still don't know. But it won't be a volkswagen that's for sure. It'll be a BMW (Bavarian Motor Werks) 335i coupe. From one kick ass car to another. But instead of working his magic on the original powerplant, his team at Car Make T&E will be dropping in the legendary 2JZ-GTE worked with his magic of course. Let's all wish Ueno luck for next year.

They mentioned that 335 turbo motor had probs so they went with the 2J right? I love the 335 platform, seems like the ultimate daily and weekend car. Just heard something about cooling issues with it.
