Top 6 Japanese Tuners: #4 Spoon

Giving Honda Fans a place to go

Here we go, Spoon Motorsports  I swear all these tuner companys that I know and have grown to respect started out with Gran Turismo. In the case for spoon it was the  well known yellow and blue S2000, which has been further improved as the company’s R&D team keeps doing more work on it. Spoon along with Mugen (more of a honda in house brand) help bring multiple tuning upgrades for Honda owners. Whether it may be the CR-X,  Civic, or Accord these two tuning companies bring out the capability and potential of the VTEC engines. 

STsun-3044308998835_361e6b0528_o Ichishima Tatsuru started the company in 1988, with a concept of bringing together cars with impeccable technology and power, but also being able to be driven during daily activities. The superb thing about this company are the products they offer for their customers. I can’t think of many company’s that offer engines that have been built as an item for sale, usually they will build from the platform you bring to them, but a personally built engine for sale is beyond me. At around 2000-2001, Spoon decided to open up Type One auto shop to help tune their customers cars and assist them with their everyday needs–only Honda customers–instead of just offering products made by them.

Watching the Hot Version and Import Bible episodes, you can tell he has a very cocky attitude about his company. At first I didn’t like the attitude he carried around, but then warmed up to it because its important to have someone who is confident on what they produce and accept criticism to some degree. So check out Spoon Sports, :p.htup-0905-01-o+spoon-sports-NA1-acura-NSX+spoon-front-bumper htup-0905-14-o+spoon-sports-NA1-acura-NSX+spoon-GT-rear-bumper
