Naito Auto is known as Japan’s most artful and precise classic car restoration shop. Masao’s father Shinichi started the business during WWII servicing European and American cars for foreign GI’s stationed in Japan, and made his son promise him Naito Auto would live for three generations more. The film will explore the family’s inspiration, obsession, ambition and sacrifice.

The film was produced by Bertucci and T.J. Parker. Above is a first clip and image.

Bertucci has directed content for car brands including Type7, Porsche and has filmed at Dakar, Nascar and Pikes Peak. He is currently working on a project with Japanese fashion designer Hiroki Nakamura with his brand Visvim.

”When the Naito family let me into their private world, I felt privileged to make a film about their unique skills and passion”, said Bertucci. “I’ve spent years unraveling the deep layers of the Naito family, and look forward to sharing their story with the world.”

Matthew Shreder from Concourse added: “One of One is one of the cinematic and stunning documentaries that has ever been made. In the vein and style of Chef’s Table, the film dives into the passion, dedication and struggles of this renowned family who have set the highest bar for premium cars that are sought after by the largest collectors and enthusiasts in the world.”
