1/18 Wangan Midnight Blackbird Porsche 930 - 26 Oct, 2016

1/18 Wangan Midnight Blackbird Porsche 930

Wangan Midnight (湾岸ミッドナイト) is a Japanese manga comic series written and illustrated by Michiharu Kusunoki. The story has its roots in the street racing culture centered on the Bayshore Route of Tokyo's Shuto Expressway. “Wangan” (literally bayshore in Japanese) is the longest, straightest road in Japan. Because of the road traffic to contend with, including a fair number of heavy trucks, the racing action is inherently hazardous and wrecks are common. Blown engines are also a frequent hazard among the extremely high power engines.

In the story, Tatsuya Shima (島達也 Shima Tatsuya?), a doctor, in his black Porsche 930 Turbo, dubbed the "Blackbird."  He is the main rival of Akio Asakura driving his Nissan Fairlady Z regularly gives him a challenge.
