The AF Liberty Walk S15 Showcased at Goodwood FOS 2022Thursday 30 June 2022
Our Liberty Walk S15 is only just out of the bag and already it's been invited to be showcased for the main man himself
What with the unveiling of our latest big build at Players Classic this season, not to mention all the commotion our Liberty Walk Super Silhouette S15 has caused ever since, you could say that in our eyes there was just one last (but arguably crucial) part of the project left on the cards - an extra special showcase for project for the main man himself - founder and chief designer at Liberty Walk, Wataru Kato.
Of course, getting the seal of approval from a bona fide living legend on the Japanese tuning scene would be the proverbial icing on the cake, but it's not the only reason we found ourselves prepping and transporting our mighty Silvia to the massive Goodwood Festival of Speed this year. In fact, having been invited to show off the project in the Liberty Walk Europe display, we were more than happy to get it along and sitting pride of place on their stand. In fact, we're sure that James, the boss of all things Auto Finesse and the bloke who signs the cheques for this sort of thing, wasn't nervous at all to see 100-odd-grand of his Nissan drag car loaded into a chopped shipping container and hoisted 30-feet into the air, either. It's just something of an added bonus that Kato-san and his crew would be flying in to check out one of the most coveted shows on the European calendar.
But, you know what? It was well worth the effort, and one or two sweaty palms from TeamAF, because with our S15 right at the top of the tree, the Liberty Walk Europe display at Goodwood looked about as immense as is humanly possible. But, aside from all that, what did the man himself, Mr Liberty Walk, think of our latest project? We'd soon find out when the entourage made a their way to the stand…
