Mine’s R35 at the Osaka Auto Messe

GTR-World shot some nice pictures of several GT-R’s that were present at the Osaka Auto Messe. First up is the R35 GT-R made by Mine’s. The car had some new carbon bits.

The most eye catching was the new spoiler. The standard GT-R spoiler features a centre mount, Mine’s decided that it could without. The other carbon bit was a frontlip in carbon.

Endless R R32 GT-R

Endless R has build this car for a customer. The car was made just in time for the Osaka Auto Messe. Mr. Sugino had asked the customer if he could show off the car at the show. The answer was yes but that resulted in a car that wasn’t to the exact specification of the customer. So now the show has finished the car is going back in the workshop and there will be a few changes. We will have to wait for the final end result.

Nissan R35 GT-R Super Taikyu Racer or V-spec?

This car was spotted during the Nismo Festival on the Fuji Speedway. The rumor mill is already in full swing. But here you will read the latest and most accurate info about this car 

Dino Dalle Carbonare had a chat with someone at Nismo regarding this car.

First off it only made an appearance on Saturday during the set up of the Nismo Festival at Fuji, so I was not able to see it with my own eyes. It was its second outing (and final one for 2008) having already been out in Suzuka with the GT car. It is the first step Nissan are taking in the possible development of a production-based race car. They are currently checking if the car will be able to meet and pass certain regulations set by racing series around the world, not only Japan. They need to see if the car an be eligible for entry into these series and if modifications for homologation will be needed. Make of this what you will but its pretty obvious that the rumored performance/track-spec variant of the R35 is underneath the body of this car. Plus it also goes along with the announcement by Nissan that the development of the performance variant (people are already calling it V-spec) will start in February. So now the two shakedown tests have been done at Suzuka and Fuji the car will be ready to go from Feb.

Mine’s R35 GTR @ Tsukuba Super Lap Battle

Yes, already there is a tuner who has their fingers on the new R35 GTR. Mine’s is the first that has raced the R35 on Tsukuba. They ran a time of 1:03:1 minutes. That was in a standard one so that is very quick. They are already developing parts for the R35. Can’t wait to see what the car will do when Mine’s do their magic on the car.

 The guy in the red jacket is Mr Niikura San. He is the president of Mine’s.
