K-Break: Tuning your car to be VIP

K-Break, in Japan, is a tuning house that's rather different to most. It's not all about power, but about looks.


When you think of car modification, the first thing that usually springs to mind is big power, silly spoilers, and painted-on tyres. At K-Break, things couldn't be more different.

Ohbayashi Kazuki, K-Break's president, began selling aero parts in April 2000. His modifications are all about making cars look better, more individual, and making them glide just that much better through the air.

His VIP modifications give big saloons and limos more presence, make them appear more imposing on the road so other road users know that the motor behind them isn't one to be trifled with.

Kazuki says about VIP: "The main point is to make them look tough."

He's right; the cars do look tough. Even in pink.
