Mugen has always been like a Samurai when it comes to the precision of its engines. In the end, it’s the pedigree of the racing heritage that obliges to this kind of attention to details. That’s why the factory has been built also by the same principles – it was normal, I guess.
The whole Machining Center is built on a giant pad that absorbs any vibrations caused by seismic tremors that could cause sensitive machinery to go out of calibration.
I am passionate about cars, yes, especially if we are talking about an exotic Japanese or some sexy Italian material. But in this particular case I will talk about Japanese. Or Japan. Or an architectural work of art. What you’ll see here it’s a working garage, not a museum (like the one presented one week ago, with the 33 Stradale).
I should not start by saying that this stunning place can be found in Japan, and it’s an architectural work of art also. It’s designed to be a display/showroom/working garage by the masterminds of “Torafu Architects”, aiming for the exclusive clients of customized cars, that are in particular eager to know what’s going on in the shop, how the employees are taking care of their precious jewels.
Sleek as a showroom, practical as an auto shop, the garage is located in Tokyo, Japan and it’s offering a very warm welcome to everyone who’s crossing it’s opened door. And you’ll also won’t forget that you’re in a garage – the touches of cement that are covering the walls, the car lifts, painted in grey so they’ll match the color palette, also to create a contrast between the “displayed” cars and the interior.
The architects wanted to keep the sleek design of an architectural modern piece, but also to maintain the utility and the designation of this shop – that’s an auto repair shop, in fact. A BRILLIANT one, I should say… !
