KAMI SPEED translates to A Successful Journey.
"It's not the destination, but the journey."
We believe cars are an extension of ourselves, more than just a form of transportation to get us from point A to point B. They embody our personality and allow us to break away from life's day to day norms.
Here at Kami Speed, we believe in separating ourselves from the norm and providing you with the tools to create unique builds that represent who you are. Whether that be a Time Attack coupe or an Overlanding truck. We believe not everyone wants to build the same way and good product selection is key to building your unique project car. However, we take this one step further by providing your with parts of highest quality and satisfaction possible. We believe that if a product usually results in a manufacturer defect or is a warranty nightmare, it's not worth carrying and we pull it off the shelf immediately. This way you can worry less on the reliability of the parts and more on the direction of your car build, to truly have a "successful car build journey."
By sticking to this principle, we can maintain our product catalog fresh and updated. Giving us more time to focus on the latest parts and knowledge for your car in order to give you more of what matters the most; great service, product expertise, and a quality product selection.
Our goal is to provide you with the parts needed for a successful car build journey.
In 1998, Hugo Chavez was elected president of Venezuela, launching the 'Bolivarian Revolution' that brought in a new constitution, socialist and populist economic and social policies funded by high oil prices, and increasingly vocal anti-US foreign policy.
In 2002, Kami Speed was created in order to help the family reduce their income dependency on what has now become the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
The company started as an eBay account selling automotive aftermarket parts that were picked up while visiting family in Japan. Surprised by how well these parts did, the Founder enlisted the help of his family to make meaningful business connections in Japan both through language and experience. Pushing forward with this endeavor, in 2005 Kami Speed was acquired by Kensaku, Inc. and was officially settled in Orlando, Florida to supply all enthusiasts the exclusive and rare parts through their online store.
With the vision to provide car enthusiasts fast and reliable access to performance parts inaccessible outside of Japan, Kami Speed grew from a one man operation to an international business that is family run full-filling orders all over the world.
Over the years, we have have expanded to become more than just a Japanese Domestic Market importer. Kami Speed supplies hand picked quality and race-proven products internationally while maintaining supply for exclusive niche products. Not only are we an advocating supplier within the industry, but also automotive enthusiasts to the core. We're here to share our passion with you.
