They have in the past but they seem to always put their logo somewhere on it if they do and the there is no logo to be found on these wheels. So I kind of doubt it's Enkei unfortunately.

Well then it's probably the updated version of the official German circuit car I mentioned. Mods like that are never going to make it to a production model in the USA.

That's why I insist on my friends not smoking in or around my car. They get pissed but I don't want ashes floating around and potentially starting fire. It's a stupid and expensive habit anyway.

Good to see more competition at the highest level - especially from the Japanese. I wish they'd of just revealed it though. But I'm sure they don't want to give away too much yet.
