LOOK! LOOK! LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!


This is the new Tommy Kaira. It's rumored to be built in England so they can bypass the gentlemen's agreement and will have a tons of power coming from a TT Nissan 2.6

LOOK HERE TOO!!!!!


Gotta love this car. Looks a little like an exige, but somehow smoother and cleaner. There are plans to be both 2 and 4WD models.

Tommy Kaira plans to unveil it at the 2001 Frankfurt show. I'm sure looking forward!

ZZ

This is the ZZ, what the ZZII will replace

look here

This one ran to 60 in only 4.8 seconds and had a top speed of 140mph! And that was only with 185hp!

I searched a little more, and rumor has it that it will have something over 500hp! I don't quite believe that number, but who knows.

Enzo, it uses Skyline GT-R's RB26DETT. It could easily go over 500hp, work on it a lil and you'll get 1000hp.

Yeah, that's about my reaction to those pictures you posted above of the Tommy Kaira ZZII (lame, I know, but I was trying to simulate losing my power of speech). Beautifully drafted lines for the body work.. but I am not sure if I like this new automotive trend of placing the exhausts in the middle of the rear bumper (as in the BMW X5, the Ferrari 360 Modena, etc.). I too look forward to its intro in Frankfurt.

I have a general question for you guys:
When was the first time you heard about Tommy Kaira?
For me, it was when I played Gran Turismo
Also, I think ZZII has a great potential, considering it's RB26DETT and the car's size and technical stuff. Would be funny to see it win Le Mans

Arrow Tommy Kaira

I first heard of TK about a year ago, on Scoop on-line magazine (a web site of automotive "spy photos" and artists renditions of new cars to be released, generally from Japanese car manufacturers).

That looks awesome! Man, a car with that sort of power:weight ratio (assuming it's anywhere near as light as the ZZ) straight from production is impressive. I'll take 2!

After reading a little more about the ZZII, I realized something.


  • The car weighs less than 2000 pounds
  • Engine "behind the driver"
  • RB27DETT
  • 550hp
  • 4wd

What else could we possibly ask for?
This will be the PERFECT race car.:smoker2:

The ZZ-II is going to enter Le Mans in 2002 or 2003(Better chance of being 2003)in the GTS class to make more compatision againest the vettes and vipers!But the only thing they might do is make it longer add a front spoiler a rear spoiler,sideskirts,more power,big wide tires,etc!
