If you ask us, it took a while for the Rauh-Welt Begriff phenomenon to hit Los Angeles. Nevertheless, the Japanese tuner's kits have now become popular in the area and so we'll see more and more of them adorning air-cooled 911s.
Back in February, we wrote about Akira Nakai, the man behind the RWB project, having flown to LA in order to complete a build. The hostilities took place at RDB LA and the shop has once again welcomed the automotive sculptor earlier this month, with a new project showing up.

The images below show the resulting 964-generation 911 in various stages of completion. And while the images that reveal the finished machine are obviously attention magnets, the pic showing how much the rear track has been expanded underneath those beefy fenders, a trademark of the label, might just be our favorite (the pic also includes the master at work).

However, the pic showing the two RDB LA Rauh-Welt Begriff builds together comes to show just how diverse the projects that get completed here can be. You see, based on the number of celebrities, as well as less famous individuals, who have their rides customized here, this might just be Los Angeles' favorite tuning location.

In fact, we gave you a taste of a typical lightweight-custom project coming from this shop earlier today, so be sure to check out the modded Ferrari F12berlinetta in case you missed it. Mind your volume level though, as the decatted, custom exhaust makes the V12 Maranello machine an overly loud beast.

Returning to RWB, the project is all about building communities, not just cars, as owners enjoy driving their air-cooled Zuffenahusen machines together, so we expect this trend to hit Cars and Coffee events and maybe even reach shows such as Jay Leno's Garage.
