Haru's True Red NC

Haru's car is an RS grade coupe model from the Ibaraki region of Japan. This Roadster has been modified with a combination of aftermarket and original Mazda parts. The car has a Garage Vary lip spoiler fitted, this is combined with some Nopro headlight trim pieces to transform the look of the front end. The numberplate has been moved around with a kit from Moderno 2&4.

The standard sideskirts have been swapped for the facelift versions from the NC2 model, these have a more sculpted design than the originals. The rear features a Nopro lip spoiler, a Honda S2000 aerial, and the Mazda appearance package bumper lip. To really transform the car's looks Haru has fitted a set of 18" 7.5J ET43 Work XSA alloy wheels; combined with a lowered ride height from Cusco Zero-2E adjustable coilovers.

The interior features some nice additions including Artworks Dewa gauges & trim, and a pair of Recaro SR-7 seats in matching red. There is also a smartTOP module fitted which allows greater control of the retractable hardtop, including allowing it to be operated while the car is moving. You can see this in action in this video.

In terms of performance additions, Endless brake pads are fitted along with Nopro droplinks, Dunlop Direzza DZ101 tyres, a Cusco brace, Beatrush intake enclosure with Apexi filter, and a Kakimoto muffler.
