The wider rear end is an acquired taste. I suppose if you like Kim Kardashian it's ok...

Seems a little small on the spokes and the cut outs. Might be a momo wheel with the mach horn assembly?

 

Looks and sounds like a sweet ride though!

A real 432-R? Yes, it is. Very much so!

 

It's Mr Akira Takeuchi's car, filmed at the Mt. Asama hillclimb fun day up in Nagano prefecture. Takeuchi san's car has a long history of magazine, book and film coverage in Japan. It was even on the cover of the latest issue of Nostalgic Hero magazine (issue no.182). The urethane 'Euro' spoiler on the front is his own addition.

Interesting noting the sequential shift, when shifting down from a high speed to a low speed he spends/wastes a lot of time shifting. With good race brakes used to the max you would not have time to do that.

Would be nice to have one of these. Don't think there are many around. The video answers a few questions. The section with the rocker cover off is very interesting.
Check out the channel! Some interesting items.
