Garage Saurus R32 @ TAS

This car has won the Tsukuba Super Battle in 2004 with Nobuteru Taniguchi behind the wheels. The car is powered by RB26 with a increased capacity to 3.0 liter and it has a rear mounted radiator. It is one of those cars that I have always admired and its cool to see this car got some love on the special GT-R stand.

HKS D1 Altezza shake down

After HKS and Nobuteru announced that they would return to the D1 they have been busy getting the car ready. Here are the first pictures of the car getting it’s shakedown.

The Altezza is running a modified 3SGE engine with a 2.2 litre stroker engine with a GT2835 turbo. Not sure if the output of the car has been changed, the ‘older’ car managed a respectable 430ps.

Getting the car sideways aint a problem according to these pictures 🙂

The man himself, Nobuter Taniguchi, I still think he has the best nickname ever NOB, No One Better.

New wing mirrors, and very large Advan RS rims. Also notice the cooling vent besided the towing hook. The turbo is mounted just beneath that vent.

Nob’s D1 Altezza

Nobuteru Taniguchi is said to return to the D1 this year. He will do a few rounds because of his busy schedule in other racing departments. HKS has updated his Altezza with new graphics and probably with some new engine parts.

The car is pushing out 600ps thanks to a 2.2 litre stroker kit made by HKS and a GT3037 Turbo. They have gutted the car and now it has a weight just shy of 1100kg. That’s 400kg lighter than a standard model, an amazing achievement.

The first round where NOB will make his debut will be on the 26th and 27th of April. D1GP will then go the Fuji Speedway, I really can’t wait to see what Nob can do against the rest of the field. I know I will be cheering for Nomuken 😉

Nissan S15 by T&E

This S15 is the personal ride of Nobuteru Taniguchi. The engine was build with alot of HKS goodies, it now puts out 380ps. That is more than enough to get this car sideways. On the exterior we find the Vertex Lang bodykit and some nice AVS wheels in 19″.

One of the best looking S15’s out there, without a doubt
