The active model’s favorite car is a wide-bodied RX-8

Aya Kuwata is not only a model but also a multi-talented TV personality and actress. She is a well-known car enthusiast in the industry and this year she is also a D1 image girl. She is popular for her slender body and elegant appearance. Her favorite car is a fully aerodynamic Mazda RX-8. Let’s take a closer look at her favorite car.

The beauty of customization is not to destroy the beauty of the RX-8

A well-known rotary enthusiast, she has already been associated with the RX-8 for eight years. During that time, she made various specification changes and finally settled on the current contents.

The customization of her beloved car was created in a style that does not destroy the beauty of her favorite RX-8. It is elegant yet cool, and the rear of the car is finished off with a slightly mischievous and racy playfulness.

For the exterior, an Auto Exe front bumper with a stylishly tightened face was installed, and M’z Tune side steps were chosen to create a line that flows backward. The rear bumper is made by Leg Motorsport with an aggressive shape, and a KRC rear wing is added to cover the boot end.

At the rear, the wings, including the quarter section, have been treated with a one-off process, and over wings designed to emphasize the RX-8’s unique wedge-shaped body lines have been fitted with massive panels that give the car radical styling and are riveted to the fenders to match the shape of the fenders. The panels are riveted to the fenders to match the shape of the fenders.

No major modifications have been made to the body, and no cuts have been made to the inside of the fenders, etc. Therefore, it can be said that Aya’s style is to enjoy body make-up that can be returned to stock when she gets tired of this style.

Driving skills are not to be outdone

As for other parts, the muffler has been replaced with a Fujita Engineering sonic muffler, and the suspension is equipped with an HKS coilover kit. Dunlop Direzza Z III tires (285/30-18 front, 295/30-18 rear) and Ray’s Volk Racing 21C tires were installed. The size was also aggressive, with 10.5J front and 11J rear.

As for the interior, the steering wheel is still in stock, so it looks like a work in progress. He plans to finish the interior in a way that is easy for him to use. Incidentally, there was a helmet on the passenger seat, which is of course for herself. She is a highly skilled driver who also enjoys circuit driving.
