2013 was a year of firsts for many in the local automotive tuning community. One of the biggest firsts was the coming of RWB – Rauh-Welt Begriff. And with that coming of RWB came another first – the first time Nakai-San of RWB worked on Porsches on Air Suspension. Because of these “firsts,” Car Porn Racing / RWB Manila has been creating international waves. The Philippines is definitely raising the bar when it comes to making RWBs even cooler. So here’s a collection of photos of the first four RWBs in the Philippines as seen in the 2013 Manila Auto Salon…

…matches the white air tank? It’s like racey black and blue on the outside, and then you’re swathed with luxurious white on the inside. Mmmmm…

And this shows that you don’t always have to have a banana type wing to make an RWB look awesome.

Air suspension allows for massive drops such as this, while allowing you to lift it up to avoid obstacles that can potentially damage…

But the grand champ of the Manila Auto Salon is the “General” – a 1985 RWB Porsche 930 (Carrera 3.2). The mix of form and function impressed the judges so much that not only did it win the Best Tuner Award, it also won the most coveted Best of Show Award for Custom Car. It was the first time in history for a car to win both of the latter awards.
