Car Spotlight: A31 Cefiro

This is the closest to Cefiro perfection that I have seen.

Chris’ Cefiro has been featured on quite a few blogs recently. Mainly in relation to the aggressive stance, the car rolls on 17 x 9.5″ SSR Professors, +5 up front and +22 for the rears.

However, the perfect stance was just a side bonus of Chris setting his Cefiro up for Drift, the main focus of the build.

The car was recently tuned by Status Tuning, with the impressive results of:

Power: 238.3kw
Boost: 19.5psi full boost at 4100rpm
Torque: 402.9 nm

As you can see, the car has come a long way since Chris first bought it. The original plan wasn’t very exciting, then the coil-overs gave in and the modification floodgates opened.

At the drift practice these photos were taken, the car was un-tuned, but Chris still put on a very solid performance all day, I’m looking forward to getting back up to Winton to see it again in December.

The car sports quite an extensive and impressive list of modifications.
