Owner’s Spotlight: Ohara San’s One Off Widebody R8
I first discovered Ohara San’s R8 years ago when I first moved to Japan. Actually, I met the builder, Akira Matsuura of Garage Ill, years ago before the insane creation you see before you existed. He teamed up with his long time friend, Ohara Hiromasa, and the R8 project began. Ohara-San wanted something that accurately reflected his drive and personality – Always seeking the next challenge all the while standing out among the crowd.
So this time on Tokyo Tuner, join me as I dive into the mind of Ohara San and discover why it’s his desire to be the best, and why he decided to create the World’s crazy R8

Tokyo Tuner is a look into the mindset of tuners, and automotive enthusiasts with an emphasis on Japan due to its seemingly endless range of creativity, ability to set trends across the globe, and sometimes even bazaar creations that can only be found in Japan. We all love cars and they are great to look at and can become the focal point of discussion for hours. However, what truly fascinates me isn’t simply the car alone, but the owner who created it. The whys someone decided to get into cars. The whys someone decided to modify a car the way they did is what really resonates with me as a fellow enthusiasts, and motivates me in more ways than just what parts to buy and add to my own car. That feeling of motivation, passion, and creativity is what Tokyo Tuner aims to share with the world. Enjoy!
