Based in Japan near the Tsukuba Circuit race course, the company first started its business in 1990. It initially focused on performance tuning, and at the 1991 Tokyo Auto Salon VeilSide took the Grand Prize in the Tuned Car category. Hironao was influenced by the 1960s Batmobile and made his designs along those lines. In 1994, the Supra COMBAT design was released which earned the Grand prize at the Tokyo Auto Salon in the Complete Car category.
In July 1995, VeilSide received the Ministry of Transportation's authorization for the production, distribution, and selling of a range of aero parts. Following this acceptance, VeilSide began to produce a full range of products. Their aerodynamic parts catalogue was originally intended for Japanese models, such as the Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7, Subaru Impreza, and Mitsubishi FTO although they have since extended their portfolio to include American and European models. VeilSide produces a Body kit called "Fortune" which replaces all body panels except the roof. It is currently available for the Mazda RX-7 FD3S, Toyota Supra Mark IV, Acura NSX, Toyota MR-S, and the Nissan Skyline V35/V36.

A Letter from Founder, Mr. YOKOMAKU,
Since VeilSide Start in 1990, has built many records and histories with SKYLINE GT-R’s, 80 Supra’s & RX7 FD as well as Nissan Z’s. Before the establishment of Veilside, I always thought about “becoming THE BEST” since the days of motorsport racing. However, any tuner is a matter of course as have to follow the trend of designing from simple to extreme design but also has to be hip & cool to be trendy. From such pure & simple idea, I believe in my own sensibility and push forward into the world of never-ending design to create fresh brand new styling & design that no one ever created. Deeper and endless world like the deep sea, there is a world of dreams and excitement that no one has ever seen. Realization of sensitivity and ideal. VeilSide continues to build in pursuit of the new world.
Beginning with the production of the main vehicle for Hollywood Studio movie “Fast and Furious, 2Fast 2Furious & Fast Furious III – Tokyo Drift”, Mr. Yokomaku has worked on Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, Bentley and other world-class design custom cars. “I worked on it”. The creation of intellectual beauty, the fusion of functionality and fashion, has a meaning in everything. Sensitivity and experience accumulated from horizontal curtain racing.
Track record extends to Nissan SKYLINE R32 Drag Racing, with Proven Japan record of 0-300km, and the world known record of the world’s fastest. The Veilside complete car created by our own custom work with the experience and sensitivity accumulated over the past 30 years will invite the world of VeilSide to invite you to the ultimate sacred place of custom no matter how the world moves hereafter.
