Mine’s Super Response Complete Engine and Turbos Launched, Priced

August 4th, 2010

Well it’s been quite a while since we got to experience first hand this Super Response monster that Mine’s have born out of their Yokosuka workshop. The time has finally come though that the Mine’s VR38 is ready to officially go on sale with full published specs.

We have said much of the emotional and overview stuff back in our January first impressions so those that are truly interested in this beast should go back and review our article from then to get a feeling of how it goes.

If you’re interested just in the raw numbers and specs, here they are straight from Mine’s. First up let’s talk pricing. The Super Response Complete Engine will cost you 3,465,000 yen in Japan provided you trade your original OEM engine. If you can’t supply an engine then Mine’s can supply one for you but at a total cost of 5,565,000 yen in Japan.

Add the Mine’s Super Response Turbines to these and you’re looking at 3,990,000 yen with OEM turbo trade-in or 6,615,000 yen without engine or turbine trade in at the upper end of the scale.

For that money you get a out of the box engine utilizing all of Mine’s know how including…

Mine’s Complete Engine: First Driving Impressions

November 20th, 2009

mines-preview-001

We’ve seen Mine’s President Niikura-san talk about the individual components and the concept of the Mine’s Complete VR38 engine for the Nissan GT-R before but now it’s getting closer to release. The engine is built and in the Mine’s demo car and, while it may still need tweaking before performance figures can be shown, they’re already confident enough to release their initial impressions:

Although it is not ready to be released yet and still in the process of being tested, today our president has test driven our R35 GT-R demo car with this amazing Mine’s Complete Engine [above].

He was commenting “This is absolutely an amazing VR38DETT. It feels like as many as about 500kg lighter than the stock R35 when you drive your R35 with this awesome engine installed. Very responsive, very exhilarating, and extremely enjoyable engine. It was absolutely fantastic. The moment you drive this, you’ll definitely want this remarkable engine!!”

Would you like to test drive it?

I think the answer to that last question Niikura-san is, yes. Can I book it in for tomorrow please?
