Best Motoring July 2009 – Nissan GT-R Full Lineup Battle

June 9th, 2009

bm-jul-09-006

In this installment of what is fast becoming “Best R35 GT-R Motoring” DVD-zine we get to checkout exactly how a stock Series II (2009 JDM model) Nissan GT-R goes up against a Nismo Clubsport Package tweaked GT-R and a SpecV Nissan GT-R. After the SpecV’s less than impressive result in questionable conditions earlier in the year, Mizuno is on hand to ensure the test is fair this time.

Three seasoned racing pros go head to head at Sendai Highland Raceway to see which GT-R is ultimately king of the circuit. Should be a good one to pickup for the collection.

As usual you can order this and any GT-R books and DVD’s from Amazon Japan in English if you follow our HowTo linked below.

Best Motoring June 2009: Tuner Special Battle

May 10th, 2009

bm-jun-09-001

Just a reminder that Best Motoring DVD volume 6 for 2009 is now out and includes some features which may interest GT-R fans, especially fans of the Shadow Sports Design Nissan GT-R.

This issue features a Super Tuned battle at Motegi where the Shadow Sports Design GT-R faces off against a tuned Corvette Z06, Porsche 911 GT3 RS, RSD Ferrari 360 Modena, and the Ti Racing Lotus Exige.

I won’t spoil it too much but it’s worth a watch for GT-R fans for sure. If you really want to know though, Shadow Sports design posted a few of the results themselves on their blog. Hunt around a bit to find them.

As usual pick this one up online from Amazon.co.jp at the link below.

In typical Youtube fashion these videos are uploaded just hours after we knew the video was even out. So feel free to watch these while you can but do us a favor and buy Best Motoring DVD’s if you’re able to so these guys keep making stuff like this!

As we said yesterday the car entry list for the 5 lap Tsukuba battle is:

  • R35 GT-R
  • Porsche 911 Turbo
  • Porsche 911 GT3
  • Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera

Interesting battle I won’t spoil the result by posting it here.

Next up is the 0-400m battle entered again by all cars with the GT-R only racing the fastest from the other races. Again I won’t spoil the result as it’s a good watch.
