Ah yes I remember listening to that podcast, was quite interesting!
They could have moved more cars if Hiro wasn’t blowing money on them bars as well as just partying 24/7.
Wonder where Hiro is now, wasn’t he arrested or something? I can’t even remember.

The Blackbird is quite a cool R34 GTR. Even though the 2Fast livery is iconic, i feel like black looks just as good
As far as I’m aware, Hiro got arrested and deported back to Japan. Contrary to popular belief, there were NO yakuza ties to MotoRex. But I wouldn’t deny there are a bunch of people who want him dead, (or to beat him up) because he took ALOT of peoples money and never provided cars. Read an account (not sure if it was credible or not) but allegedly a guy put down a $90,000 deposit on an R34 from MotoRex & never got the car. Or money back:

he’s probably still out there somewhere, just with a different name/identity. I don’t think we’ll ever hear any updates on him. His life probably depends
On secrecy now. Thing is, I bet he knows the exact number of motorex cars. Or at the very least; the R34 GTRs that went in thru the program.

Ah right I see. I also remember seeing these pics with the Nür. But IIRC the Nür didn’t get a bond release right? I do not know what happened after that. View attachment 270544

I have been trying to find more information on a USA V-Spec II that I saw back in June of 2009. It looks like it might be one of the two shown in your pictures. Photos are from 6/10/2009 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. These were taken on an iPhone 3g, so excuse the poor quality. Things of note: poor fitment at front of hood, many flaws in the paint on the front bumper, stock looking interior, lack of rear window wiper (covered by a cap with an indistinguishable logo), aftermarket wing, exhaust tip shape, remnants of the same Osaka bumper sticker as on the Nür but it's only badged as a regular V-Spec II.

I also think he’s still out there just in hiding from people so he doesn’t get into shit haha.
He’ll stay anonymous for the rest of his life id assume unless he comes out and does interviews which i doubt!

It could be one of these. One was a Nür one was a base V-Spec II. But I believe the guy who bought the Normal V-Spec II wanted to buy the Nür instead when it had been released and I think he sold the V-Spec II to Paul Walker and kept the Nür for himself. So it might’ve been this!

Oooh that car? Yeah it still has Louisiana plates to this day. Very VERY unlikely that it’s a motorex car. I think the current owner is building it to 1000HP, real VspecII though. Judging by the silver VIN plate in the engine bay.

Photos are decent quality for the time period.

Nah, Paul’s base VspecII is still with his company in LA, & the Nür is in Florida. I can’t actually figure who brought in this Louisiana car. It’s been in the country forever though.
