Close-Up: More Power, More Speed – Auto Works K2 Racing RX-8

The rotary specialists at Auto Works K2 have recently begun producing the framework for a SE3P that will, without a doubt, take the Time Attack scene by storm.  The shop’s new flagship made it’s debut at Mazda Fest last week and was able to get some solid lap times in on TC2000. The chassis, acquired by a customer directly from RE Amemiya, used to serve as RE’s old D1 car.  With the Summer downtime between seasons in Japan, the shop has already started the car’s transformation to a full time attack build; consider this post as a preview to a full article.  Matt is scheduled to shoot the car next week and we’ll have a full feature on Attack’s newest competitor soon.  Check out the pictures past the break.
