On August 11 – 12, 2019, America’s Car Museum and Phantasy Kolors hosted the completion of a public build for the first time in the Pacific Northwest of a Rauh-Welt Begriff (RWB) Porsche 911. Guests watched artist and Rauh-Welt Begriff founder Akira Nakai complete the build of the RWB Seattle No. 5.
Owners of RWB Porches make a significant commitment to receive a Nakai creation. The body kit alone is $30,000, with a total investment that can easily eclipse six-figures.
Nakai quickly made a name for taking a precision grassroots approach to engineering Porsches, using the automobile as a canvas to express passion, culture, personality and individual identity. Considered a master of his craft, Nakai is an acclaimed artist that creates one-of-a-kind originals, winning the adoration of many fans around the world. He is also a driving force in the transformation of Japanese car customizing culture.
Regarding the event, America’s Automotive Trust Development Manager Kristen Wells said, “We are thrilled to partner with Phantasy Kolors and Rauh-Welt Begriff to put on a public build featuring a legendary artist such as Akira Nakai. The two-day event is just another example of the types of vibrant gatherings that position America’s Car Museum as world-class destination for automotive enthusiasts.”
