5th Gear GT-R shoot

Right now the 5th Gear show is on UK’s channel Five, go check it out.. It covers the first UK owned R35 GT-R. Jason Plato will be the TV host that will drive the car around Rockingham circuit. I’m sure the bit of the GT-R will be available on youtube shortly after. When you want to download the entire program afterwards I suggest you check out Finalgear.

I allready can show you the first pictures 🙂

Best Motoring part 4

Best Motoring is pumping out issues as if their lives depended on it. Now they have released the 4th edition. In this latest edition they will test the Amuse R35 GT-R and they will decide wich FR car is better, the new M3 or the IS-F.

The Amuse R35 GT-R will be driven by Keiischi Tsuchiya and he will try to brake the one minute barrier on the Tsukuba Circuit. We allready know it is possible because we saw the Mine’s GT-R doing it.

Driftworks S15 2JZgte

This post has been waiting to long. The S15 you see here is made by the guys from Driftworks in the UK.

1 x Spec R S15
1 x 2JZ GTE 3.0 Supra engine, with a Garret GT4088, running minimun 590bhp, and using the 6 speed Getrag gearbox. All of this will be pushed back through the bulkhead 8 inches to get some balance back with the longer and heavier 3 litre lump.

This car is build in such a way that it can compete with the D1GP machines build in Japan. With this build no stone left unturned. A truly awesome build, for more pictures and inside info please log on to the Driftworks forum here.

Brother from another mother

What do you get when two friends get together with their high powered cars? You get a really interesting write up and alot of very nice pictures. For the complete write up please check it out here. MUST READ!!!!!!!

One of the cars is the first UK R35 from Ben Linney and the other car is a 997 GT3 from Cem. The owner from the Porsche went from a Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R Vspec Nur to this Porsche. Now he has driven the R35 from Ben. So if anybody can make a comparison he is the man to do it.
