Event Coverage | Hellaflush Japan at Fuji Speedway (Pt. I)

October 6, 2011

Night-Import: Photography by Zee-Zayas | Words by William Lee

Hellaflush Japan-29
The highly anticipated event we were waiting for coverage on is finally being shared with the help of our photographer Zee-Zayas in Japan. Hellaflush is a very well-known event here in the United States and for the first time ever, Fatlace decided to go worldwide, organizing and hosting one in Japan @ Fuji Speedway. 
Without any doubt, I can say this particular style all started from Japan and inspired many around the world. I'm one of those guys who started with the Hellaflush scene and appreciated every single part of it. Personally, it wasn't just a style, but art. Many of you hellaflush haters just hate the fact that this style was not meant for a car to be functional, but that is totally absurd and false because it's only a part of it that applies to such a statement. I can write about this for days and I'll still be unsatisfied because of all this hate that's going around, but because this post is a coverage and Zee-Zayas and I want to show you guys how the Japanese do it, let's get on with the photos. Zee transferred these photos from his Ipad, so the quality might not be so good, but I want to thank him for traveling and covering this event for my blog.

VIP. Enough said.

Hellaflush Japan-10
An slammed Audi A4. Very unusual to see such a model being flushed.

Hellaflush Japan-11
Now this is even more rarer than the A4 posted above. Scions tCs are made but not sold in Japan. I'm guessing this particular model was bought from the US and brought back to Japan. It has the RS1 front lip and sitting on aggressive sized SSR wheels.

Hellaflush Japan-12
Slammed VW on what seems like BBS LMs.

Hellaflush Japan-30
I've seen tons of S13s modded like this one in the States. We tend to copy the style of Japanese cars and they try to copy ours.

A famous SC that was featured by Stance:Nation not too long ago.

Wow. Literally a finger gap off the ground, this S6 Avant killed it!

Charcoal? Cement?

How about a VIP style BMW with a White on White theme.

You won't come across a fitted Panamera too often.
