In life they say its the taking part that counts but sometimes... just sometimes... its nice to be first, not second or the fat kid at the back who gets a pat on the back for taking part. Featuring Mark Needhams 200sx is a certain first for fast-n-modded and our partners night-import who are delighted to get a pretty much EXCLUSIVE shoot on this iconic car .
A big thanks goes out to the team at elite for making this happen..even if it did cost us a round at mcdonalds.. which clarkey ate !
This highly modified 200sx has had its bodywork fettled by the best in the business, Elite bodyworx.The lads at Elite are no strangers to Marks cars as for a number of years now elite have done the work on the past modified nationals cars including the Toyota Celica and the old 200 mark owned.
With this being a promo car for what is now the UK's biggest modified car event it has to stand out. Let's face it.. it has to grab your attention. The team at elite and mark go thier heads together on this one and have gone for a bright green & carbon combo. What springs to mind with that combo ? kermit the frog ? yeah.. we think so.. but seriously.. looking at this car from every angle just oozes pure modified perfection.
This Nissan isn't just all looks aswell, its crammed with full HKS running gear, front mount etc and is packing well over 400bhp to back up its menacing stare. The full front end of the car looks like it could suck small children off the pavement and spit them out the exhaust drenched in high octane fuel, It really is a monster...actually, maybe it isnt kermit the frog, its more like the Hulk.
Packing soo much break horse power requires the right set up and with Tein coilover suspension and some 10J rears should keep this incredible hulk wannabe on the straight and narrow.
Creeping inside the car to get a token shot of the dials we where surprised to see some lovely re trimmed Bride bucket seats with green stitching, but even better than that was a cocky ' Modified Nationals ' logo engraved into the seats. Turning round to look toward the dials and to see whats on offer, the defi gauges grab our attention with their crisp white glow they are like two big moons sat on your a-pillar egging you on to put pedal to the metal.
This isn't the end of the road for ' the hulk ' .. its next stop is at new fast-n-modded sponsors CSM designs for a custom vinyl design to go over the green paint to advertise modified nationals 2011 and were sure Andy & the team at CSM will compliment the awesome work done by Elite. No doubt you will see this car at your next cruise or car show.
We are still waiting on spec on this beautiful 200sx but rest assured as soon as we have them we will post them !
