The Tommy Kaira ZZ is recognised worldwide by its inclusion in Sony’s Play Station Gran Turismo 2 Race game. The cars were built in Norfolk under licence for Tommy Kaira (THE Japanese tuning specialists) of Japan during the 1990’s.

Of the 257 built all but 6 were exported to Japan where they are still today considered an iconic car. Of those six, one was crash tested, one exported to the US, one is in original condition in private ownership, one unmodified car was successfully raced in the 750 Clubs Roadsports, one was used as a development car by Breckland Technology and of all the cars built the ZZ SE-R (Special Equipment - Race) is the only car to be fully developed as a high performance race car.

History: Production of the ZZ ceased in 1999 when the Yen crashed against the US Dollar. Breckland Technology bought the rights and continued development but never put the model into production as Tommy Kaira pushed forward the development of the ZZ2. Our ZZ was acquired by one of the development engineers and subsequently mothballed.

Performance & Classic Cars Chief Executive John Timewell after racing against a ZZ concluded one specifically built for racing would be very successful on circuit, purchased the donor car and re-engineered it creating the ZZ SE-R.
