If there’s one show in Canada that sends echos around North America, that is “Canada’s Biggest & Baddest Car Show” – Importfest which was held in Toronto and Vancouver today.  With much past success with our tuner market sponsorships on the East Coast, it was time to show the West Coast some love with our first Vancouver based sponsored car which we debuted at Importfest Vancouver!

We take you on the journey of Gerald Lee’s 500+ Horsepower Turbo Honda S2000 sporting our all new Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105 Ultra High Performance Tires & ADVAN livery to match.

Much like any tuner in their beginning stages of their 1st build, it’s all about personalization, but this is not Lee’s first S2000 build, but rather his 7th!  Taking inspiration from his track experience with his 6 previous builds he knew what he wanted.

“I wanted to build a monster at the track (a well tamed monster), but yet keep it drivable on the streets” – Gerald Lee10608684_10203074433754759_5654282480674341432_o

While the standard Honda S2000 does perform great, there is always room for improvement which is what Lee did, at every possible level.  With everything from a full custom turbo build at a modest 16 psi boost off paired with a Garrett Turbo to custom V-Mount intercooler and an HKS blow off valve, this S2000 more than doubles its original horsepower to 500+.  While all the power in the world is great, Gerald sought after a car that was also well balanced.  Boasting impressive drivetrain, suspension, electronic, aerodynamic and brake upgrades from some of the best in the business such as Exedy, Stoptech, Defi, Recaro, Voltex, T1R, AEM, Hondata, Race Logic, Wedsport, J’s Racing, Mugen, and of course Yokohama Tire.

In early 2014, Gerald was picked up by Team Yokohama to represent the tuner market on the West Coast.  Selecting a street tire to match this car’s impressive power and suspension upgrades, Lee sought out the ADVAN Sport V105 with orange oil technology which brought on the potential of his S2000 with improved grip and cornering in both wet and dry conditions.  The light weight of these V105 tires was also a perfect match for his light weight Wedsport wheels.  To top off his S2000, we just needed to add the iconic “Red” ADVAN livery! Debuted at Importfest Vancouver on August 9th, we showed off both the benefits of Orange Oil technology in our tires and introduced this “Track by day, Street by Night” car.

Look for our Team Yokohama S2000 on tracks around the West Coast or cruising the streets of Vancouver, BC.
