Top Secret Supra V12 does 358km/h at Nardo

Top Secret just made this announcement that they made a record speed of 222mp/h or 358km/h on the Nardo cicruit in Italy. They haven’t managed the 400km/h barrier but this was a first preliminary test to see how the car would react on the circuit. So I guess now all systems are go and that Top Secret will succeed in their quest for the holy grale

The V12 comes from a Toyota Century, and is being aided by two turbo’s. The total horsepower output of the car is just shy of a 1000ps. The car uses the Final Evolution Widebody kit designed by Top Secret

Blitz Skyline R348

Around 1999 and 2000 it was very popular amongst Japanese tuners to do high speed runs. One of those tuners was Blitz, they build this R34 that they called the R348. I even have some old magazines where this car was featured.

The car had a 890bhp engine courtesy of a single KKK turbo and the rest of the Blitz catalogue. The bodykit isn’t to anybody’s taste but is was specially designed for this car and the high speed run. The rims are a set of Blitz Technospeed Z1 in 18″.

Blitz managed a top speed of 215mph (346km/h) on 2.3 bar of boost. The High Speed runs are coming back. Top Secret is going to try and break the 248mph (400km/h) barrier and Jun tried it with their Stream Z.

M Speed R34 GT-R

Got some new pictures of the M Speed R34 GT-R. What will become of it now that the R35 in standard trim is allready breaking the one minute barrier at Tsukuba.

This still is in my opinion of the best R34’s out there.

JUN Option Stream Z

I guess alot of you guys already know this car. But I still like it for what is was made. The car was build for Daijiro Inada (founder of D1GP and Tokyo Auto Salon) to compete in the Silver State Classic Challenge. This challenge covers a 90 mile long ‘track’ where your highest speed will be recorded. In 2005 this car was totaled as you can see in the movie and the picture.

Daijiro got out of the car uninjured. That’s really something if you look at the movie and see the inside of the car. JUN has build this car with a FIA approved rollcage and that saved Daijiro’s live.

The car crashed because the front Michelin tire blew.
