Sung explained to me recently that while the car looked great for its SEMA debut, he wasn’t sure the quality of the build was as high as he wanted due to the rush to finish the car before its first proper reveal. The original interior, which was also constructed by CarbonSignal, was fitted after they got in touch with Sung on social media explaining how they’d love to be part of the build. They wrapped the old plastic dashboard in Alcantara and leather, and added accents of carbon fibre throughout the interior. But because of the rush, Sung wasn’t sure it was as safe as it could be., despite its good looks.
Now, with the Fugu Z seeing the light of day again after its almost 5-year slumber, Sung and his team at GReddy have some proper time to shovel into the build and bring it up to Sung’s exquisite expectations. The old black seats have been removed and replaced by red leather examples which are carbon-backed and have matching red stitching, and while they haven’t got the Fugu Z logo embroidered into them, they beautifully contrast with the exterior white paint job and match the single red spoke on each of the wheels.
Even Kenji Sumino, President of GReddy is getting in on the action, as you can see from Sung’s Instagram post below.
So guys, what do you think? Are you loving the red leather, because we are! And hey, did you notice those big blue bottles in the background of one of the photos..?
The Fugu Z is having an almost complete revamp, with the naturally-aspirated RB26 finally having the twin-turbos that it’s been missing fitted. It’ll be more powerful, safer than ever before, and oh so ready for some track action.
