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.

Carview.jp races the R35 GT-R on track

 Here is a nice video I found on the net. Carview tests the R35 on the track with a Japanese reporter. Although it is in Japanese you can see some nice shots of the car on the circuit.

I’m still amazed at how little bodyroll the car has in thight corners.

The original video can be seen here in a higher resolution.
