Everyone knows Paul Walker was an avid car fan, but the late actor wasn’t the only member of the Fast and the Furious family to have a penchant for cars. Sung Kang, who played the character Han in some of the movies, also has a love for cars, particularly classic Porsches. However, he also loves the Datsun 240Z, and recently he teamed up with some of his buddies to restomod an original.

The build is being documented in a five-part series from FOX Sports, the first of which is featured here, and the completed car is on track for a debut at next month’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada. In this first part of the series, Kang explains that the build was an excuse for him to hang out with his buddies. He also gives reasons for why he went with a 240Z.

The completed car, which will be known as the Fugu Z, will be rocking a wide-body kit from Rocket Bunny along with a host of other mods. We can’t wait to learn more and look forward to seeing the completed car at SEMA. The event runs from November 3-6 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and you can access more of our coverage via our dedicated hub.
