There’s absolutely nothing I love more than touge battles, HKS-tuned weapons, and extremely high-resolution videos. So, when I caught wind of Luke Huxham’s latest creation on behalf of Motorhead magazine — by means of a teaser — I was hooked, waiting for the day it would be released.

Heart vs Head, is a visual spectacle that I’ll never forget. Set in my  all-time favourite touge battleground — Gunsai — NOB Taniguchi attacks the tarmac with creations from HKS both new and old. The differences between both the R32 and R35 chassis are instantly recognizable, with NOB appearing to hang on for the ride with the older of the two.

Technology has come a long way with both cameras, and cars, as this spectacular video showcases. Although this video is only 4min 23s long, you’ll need at least an hour as you’ll find yourself seeking more visually stunning creations from the talented Luke Huxham.

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
