First R35 GT-R arrives in the UK

Their is always somebody that has to be the first. This guy couldn’t wait till next year so he imported this car himself. Max Power provided me with these pictures. Ben Linney is the lucky owner of this new imported R35 GT-R.

He’s not the first one though with a R35 GT-R in Europe because there already was one spotted on the mainland of Europe. Rumors say that this car belongs to Carlos Ghosn (CEO Nissan).

Varis MKsport Cyber EVO 5

Revspeed and Option are two of the companies that are best known for their Time Attack evenst. Another less known event is that form BE Circuit. They organise a smaller event but that doesn’t mean it is less exciting. Alot of privateers bring their cars and even get their cars around the track within the one minute range on the Tsukuba Circuit.

The fastest car during these Time Attacks is this Varis MKsport Cyber EVO 5 with a time of 0:56.687. The car has 2.2 JUN stroker kit and a HKS GT3240 turbo.

In this first picture you can also see the second fastest, another EVO 5 build by Technical Factory Hirano. It clocked a time of 0:57.945.

Proshop Screen FD RX7

Everybody knows the Pan Speed RX7 by now. But offcourse their are other RX7 tuners. One of them is Proshop Screen. They were invited by HKS to participate in their 35th anniversary on Fuji Speedway. The Time Attack was an all out race, where everybody was put in the same class.

When you realise that there were GT-R’s, S15,s and other fast cars. It is a real feat that they managed to grab second place just behind the ATTKD R34 with a time of 01:48:162.

American R34 GT-R

This R34 is owned by Joe Galante. I saw him on a Grip Video once when i’m not mistaken with his then show winning Toyota Supra. His new toy is this R34 GT-R with some nice Top Secret goodies and 19″ HRE C20 competition rims. The car has been roaming the show scene in America, but I’m guessing there is no need to stop with a gorgeous car like this.
