Actor Sung Kang 'Fast and Furious' Franchise Builds FuguZ, Fan of Dapper Lighting
May 16, 2016
Sung Kang famously known for his character 'Han' from the 'Fast and Furious' Franchise recently teamed up with Greddy Performance in Irvine, CA to build a 73' Datsun 240Z. When asked about the naming of the vehicle 'Fuguz', Kang replied:
"My friend Steve Strope is a car builder and he built some of my favorite cars, including the Anvil Mustang that appeared in Fast & Furious 6," said Kang. "I asked him why he named his cars and he said that so much goes into building one they become like his kids, and all family members should have a name."
"That stuck with me when we started thinking of a proper name for our Z," continued Kang. "I remembered having dinner with Sonny Chiba in Japan while filming Tokyo Drift. We were having fugu, Japanese for blowfish, and Chiba explained that if the poisonous fish wasn't properly prepared, it could kill you – a parallel I saw with a car built for the track."
Kang, who expects to race the vehicle in a 24 hour race at some point, partnered up with Dapper Lighting to provide headlights and tail lights for the FuguZ. What he called stage two of the build, involves more modern equipment such as lighting upgrades to not only keep himself safe but the others safe around him on the track and streets. When asked why Dapper? Sung replied "I almost killed myself with the stock headlights. I couldn't see anything. I knew I needed Dapper." The FuguZ currently runs the Dapper Lighting Chrome V2 Halo edition. The kit starts at $369, is fully plug and play with most classic vehicles, and is available at www.dapperlighting.com
