Frank from Tuner Concept's Nissan Cefiro - fitted with an R35 GT-R body conversion and powered by an RB26, it features a RWD configuration and a manual transmission. It's built by Karn Fiber in Bangkok.

  |   Best Of Chad Burdette Thailand Super Series Ambulance

The motorsports ambulances in Thailand - proof that Thai enthusiasts can't leave anything with wheels stock. This one from the Thailand Super Series had Project Mu brakes, RPF1 wheels, and titanium exhaust.

  |   Best Of Chad Burdette Liberty Walk Ferrari 458

The world's first Liberty Walk Ferrari 458 - truly an amazing car, but what makes it so interesting is that it was built in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Seeing this million-dollar Ferrari (yes, that's how much it costs there) scraping the horrible roads of Vietnam was one of the most interesting automotive experiences of my life. I never expected to see something like this in Vietnam!

  |   Best Of Chad Burdette Nissan Patrol

2,000whp-plus Nissan Patrol built by F Performance in Dubai - yes, this is the one from TV series The Grand Tour! With a fully built R35 GT-R drivetrain conversion, massive turbos and a ton of fuel, this was one of the most interesting vehicles I've ever photographed. See a shop tour of F Performance here.

Fast Performance Evo 7 - with a full widebody Evo 10 conversion, this car is built to compete in the Thailand Super Series. It was great to watch people break their necks once they saw the 4G63 sitting the bay of what looks like an Evo X. More from Thailand Super Series here.

Crazy Suzuki Jimny spotted at Tokyo Auto Salon - powered by a built SR20 and set up to destroy a circuit track, this build has been catching attention far and wide via social media for quite a while.

Heng from Bangkok's hod rod Jeep - powered by a 4.0L Lexus V8 with ITBs, this is about as outside the box as you can get! Full story here.

  |   Best Of Chad Burdette Nissan Juke R

Nissan Juke R no. 001 - armed with a 4.0-liter engine and upgraded turbos, this little Juke makes 1,200whp! Built by F Performance and riding around Dubai all night in this monster was another all-time top automotive experience in my life.

  |   Best Of Chad Burdette Thai Diesel Truck

The diesel trucks of Thailand - Thai people have a very special relationship with these trucks that goes back decades. When the motorsports scene started to grow in Thailand, the people started modifying and racing what they had, which was their work trucks. During the day they would use their trucks for work and at night they would race them. To this day they drag race, street race, road race, and drift these trucks. More from Bangkok Auto Salon here.
