After countless hours of research, months spent at Hunter Machine, and years with the dream. BERETTAspeed is proud to bring you this years Feature Car of the year: Brian Edwards and his 3.1 Turbo 88 GT.
This car was purchased new by his family back in 1988. His father being a racer himself knew well enough to order this car with manual transmission. Fast forward nearly 14 years, Brian's parents have given him the car for his birthday, and the story begins in January of 2002.
Brian worked on audio and interior first. Brian's audio set up consists of a Sony MP3 head unit, Sony 6x9s, a Sony 1000Watt Mono Block amp, Pioneer 3.5" speakers in the dash, and 2 MTX 6000 12" subs. The rest of his interior set up consists of green neons under the dash, and green map lights.
After getting the interior and audio up to par Brian decided it was time to tackle the exterior of his Beretta. Brian added full Z04 ground effects, 17" Primax wheels, a nice clean shave of the side moldings, and upgraded lighting. After getting the outside to his desired level, the fun began.
With hundreds of hours of research, and help from his Dad, and Hunter Machine, Brian has put one of the finest 3.1 v6's ever created into his Beretta.(scroll down for engine mod list) It is boosted by a Mitsubishi 14B turbo, and with some more tuning, this car should see some of the best numbers from any 3.1 v6 ever. Not just from one in the Beretta world.
Brian is on the forefront of speed in the Beretta world. His hard work and dedication will most certainly pay off. We congratulate Brian on his Feature Car of the year, and hope to hell that we will see it at BerettaFest 2004.
