THE-Lowdown.com feature : Heasman Steering Aventador

Knowing there was an Aventador being pulled apart for upgrades we had to go and take a closer look. Brad from Heasman took time out to chat with us about the project and exactly what it feels like to modify an $800,000+ car.

THE-Lowdown.com feature : Heasman Steering R35 GT-R

– Words: Ryan Lewis. Photos: MJ Digital.
If you lined up the crème de la crème of Japanese performance cars past and present, the R35 would come out on top in every test. It’s the most supreme example of Nissan’s engineering prowess, and the flag bearer for Japan at the elite end of supercar territory. It’s as close to perfection as we’ve seen from any Japanese automaker. So how do you improve on perfection? That’s the battle that…
