While not the original ‘Yoshida Special’ Midnight Club Blackbird. This 930 was originally built up for the live action movie of Wangan Midnight in 1991. It was the director’s personal 930 Turbo.

The car was built up to 400hp for the movie, and when finished, it was found to be too hard to drive. So it changed hands. Then things got ridiculous…

Tubular frame, 3.8L engine from a 993 TurboS, sequential transmission, moulded RWB fenders with Auto Garage TBK bodykit…and a turbo from Aryton Senna’s winning Mclaren MP4/4 F1 car.

Apparently it rarely roams the Shuto Expressway anymore, though is said to occasionally make an appearance at the circuits of Japan.

There were- however- rumours that the owner had goals of hitting 400kph on the expressway over the next few years.

the car was originally Michiharu Kusunoki’s, author of Wangan Midnight.

He donated his own vehicle to be used in the live auction movie. After receiving it back, he sold it because he feared its new power.
