Shop Drop-in : V-SPEC Performance

August 31, 2017

The word V-SPEC has long been a model that’s synonymous with the GTR. So when I heard about V-SPEC Performance, I expected it to be some sort of spectacular GTR heaven. Was not the least bit disappointed. V-SPEC  is extremely well known within Melbourne, being the distributors and stockist of many large Japanese brands such as Varis, Chargespeed and Rowen. Yet somehow, in my four years of living in Melbourne, I…

We’ve been having shows there for years now and while this year we didn’t see as many TEAM/CREW cars as we had hoped for, the number of vendor cars & individuals not affiliated with crews/teams did increase this time around. As usual, Toyo Tires sent out their big rig and Meguiars took care of all the show cars with their Quick Detailer and…
