When you build a car, it’s not for the approval of others. You build it because you like it. Because you love it. It’s something that makes you happy.
Toyota MR2s are one of the only mid-mounted engined cars that are affordable and readily available to the common man. Discontinued in 2007, the MR2 holds a cult status which will continue for many more years to come.

Kei Miura has been been an underground hero within his native Osaka for many years. Outlaw kanjo racer by night and with a yancha bōsōzoku past that, even at 42 years old, he refuses to outgrow. Miura-san also happens to be the man behind TRA-Kyoto.
TRA-Kyoto are leaders in the design of body kits, embracing modern CAD design in an industry that still heavily relies on clay and foam sculpturing. Working with most major tuning shops and body kit brands within Japan, TRA-Kyoto also produce their own range of products such as the 6666 Customs range focusing mainly on the Nissan S chassis. When Miura-san turned his attention towards the car of the moment, the GT86/FR-S, few would have expected the explosion in interest that his Rocket Bunny creation would have.
With his recent debut at SEMA, Kei Miura has gone from underground hero to the man of the moment. Good timing then that crankandpiston hooked-up with http://www.maiham-media.com to bring you this exclusive film behind the scenes with the man himself. Enjoy!
