Japan’s most insane Porsche tuner, Akira Nakai-san, set up shop in Florida for a recent build, and two automotive filmmakers documented it all in glorious 4K. The build took place at Titan Motorsports and was Nakai-san’s first time building a legendary RAUH-Welt Begriff Porsche in Orlando.
Having previously documented the build of RWB “Prince,” together, the young filmmakers, Chris Petruccio and Anthony Purcell, teamed up again and to create this 20-minute masterpiece.
In less than three days—and on the owner’s birthday—RWB “Kyou-Kishi” or “Fighting Knight” was born. But it doesn’t end in Orlando. Nakai San plans to complete a total of 60 cars by the end of 2016.
RAUH-Welt Begriff Porsches have attracted people’s attention all over the globe. In nearly every city that he visits, the builds become public events and fans flock to see him. Although Nakai-san spends almost as much time signing autographs and taking pictures with fans, he explains that he merely does it to make people happy.
Chris and Anthony did an excellent job of, not only documenting the experience, but also cinematically capturing it in such a way that makes it difficult not to become a Nakai-san Fanboy. The super-slow motion and close-up shots so eloquently portrays his concentration (I witnessed it during the build of RWB “Brooklyn”), while the driving sights and sounds give you goosebumps.
Chris informed me that behind-the-scenes vlogs are coming out next week, so after you’ve enjoyed the 20-minute short film, be sure to watch how it all went down.
