It’s time for revenge, this time Best Motoring is putting the R35 against the Murciëlago LP640, Gallardo Superleggera, Porsche 997 turbo and Lotus Exige. The drivers will be Keiichi Tsuchiya, Naoki Hattori, Takayuki Kinoshita, Akira Iida, Yuji Ide. This will be a full Twin Ring Motegi timed attack.

Just look at the LP640 in this first picture, if that doesn’t scare you I don’t know what will 🙂

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.

Best Motoring Video R35 GT-R

Yes the footage is allready online, and you can see the complete video here.

Here is a quick translation of what is being said

Basically, Mizuno-san explains why the new PM platform is better, and how it actually works better with a car that weighs 1740kgs – namely by having the transaxle separate from the engine, it allows better power apportionment to the back wheels under acceleration – there is a 0.2 second weight transfer that can be used. Also, the car is set up for over 2G sideways forces. Also – what was interesting is he said “so we have laps at Nurburgring in the 7 30s… I say 30s now, but that might change next year…” As for Gan-san, he likes the car, but pointed out to Mizuno-san that the car understeers a bit more than he’d like on downslope/uphill corners. Says that with all the computers, that should be able to be taken care of. But, it is one car that he would love to drive at Nurburgring.

Thanks to Akasaka R33 for translating
