GT-R’s take the win at SuperGT

It was a good weekend for the R35 GT-R, when Nissan had the formula ‘win on sunday, sell on monday’ in their mind they sure are doing a good job.

April 13th, Okayama International Circuit, Okayama Prefecture, Japan – Sunday April 13th, the 2nd round of the SUPER GT season was held at Okayama International Circuit in Okayama prefecture. XANAVI NISMO GT-R(#23 Satoshi Motoyama / Benoit Treluyer), starting from pole position led the race from the start, accomplishing a pole-to-flag victory, to get their second consecutive win after the first round of the 2008 season. Third in qualifying, Calsonic IMPUL GT-R(#12 Tsugio Matsuda / Sebastien Philippe) finished 2nd, and the NISSAN GT-R took its second consecutive 1-2 finish.

The number #23 GT-R managed to to race the 82 laps in 2:01’56.605. The Xanavi Nissan is now leader in points with a total 46 out of two races, second place goes to Petronas Toms team with their SC430, they have 19 points out of two races.

My pride and joy

Wanted to show you guys some more pictures of my ride, remember that this car is still for sale. For serious enquiries please contact me through the email adress shown in the header of this page.

The car was build for Ken Nomura by Blitz and we bought it from him through Power Vehicles. We used the car as a promotional tool to promote drifting in Europe. I have had alot of fun with the car and when the shows were near where I live I would drive the car to and from the show. The car is definatly no trailer queen and was always maintained to the highest level by Garage D in the UK.

The car has a full URAS D1 Spec Version II bodykit that consists of a front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, wide front fenders, rear over fenders and wide rear door caps. The car is lowered on some Blitz/Sachs SP7 coilovers with Eiback springs.

In the rear we can see the 3d carbon GT wing and the Blitz titanium exhaust. Rims are also made by Blitz and are the Technospeeds in 18″. In the front the car has 245/40 and in the back 275/25.

The carbon hood is made by Top Secret

The entire engine was built by Blitz and therefor it features almost everything from their catalogue. The turbo used is the K5-700R that gives the car it’s enormous HP figures. Mounted on the turbo is the Blitz SUS air cleaner, intercooler is also from Blitz and I haven’t seen any intercoolers bigger than this one 😉

The car has more than 450hp and that’s more than enough to get this car sideways,

Here we see the Keys Racing steering wheel, all the electrics in the car works from the powerwindows to the airco and radio. Blitz also provided the car with some electric goodies like a boost controller and R-vit controller.

For more info and inquiries about this car, please contact me via my email.

One of my blogroll friends Jon Sibal emailed me the other day saying he was working on a Top Secret LF-A design. I was familiar with his other work, he made a Top Secret R35 GT-R design that was featured on a poster at the Tokyo Auto Salon at the Top Secret booth. But I wouldn’t have guessed that his new design would look this good.

Props to Jon Sibal, look him up in my blogroll
