Superb animation featuring realistic tuned vehicles? Sounds like a good recipe but it gets better when we find out what the hero is driving at the end. I wont spoil it but it is GTRBlog.com after all so I think you can figure it out.
From the creative mind of Chris and Chrison Studios, I just can’t wait for the first episode!
As far as displays on why the GT-R is a great party pooper to take along to Porsche track days it doesn’t get much better than this. Take a GT3 world champ and GT1 racing driver like Henry Moser, give him the keys to your mildly tweaked GT-R and let ‘er rip. This video is the result.
Thanks to Philippe the owner of the car for the heads up and for giving Henry the drive.
AutoCar.co.uk pit the latest PDK Porsche 911 turbo up against the new Audi R8 V10 6 speed manual and the Nissan GT-R. They refer to the GT-R as the benchmark and also make quite a mention of the price difference.
Good video, not just because the GT-R beats out the latest batch of competitors but also it’s very interesting to see them back to back on the same day with the same driver.
Interesting race from a roll that we noticed over on Switzer’s blog today. A P800 Switzer Tuned Nissan GT-R up against a LPE ZR1.
The ‘vette is putting out nearly as many claimed horses and weighs a lot less, for sure – but Godzilla has a way of making physics bend to his will. Who wins? You’ll have to watch all the way to the end!
Quite an interesting race, especially for those who write off the GT-R at the top end of a long drag…
Just a few videos submitted by a reader of a Nissan GT-R playing with some other nice cars at a recent track day in France at the Paul Ricard Circuit at La Castellet. It’s a three part series, find the second and third videos after the jump.
Thanks to Philippe, the GT-R driver in the videos, for the submission.
GT Channel have had a long friendship with Mine’s and Niikura-san certainly seems to love their cameras. They recently hit up the Mine’s HQ in Yokosuka, Japan to check out what the Mine’s guys have in the pipeline and what their plans are for the new Nissan GT-R SpecV.
As discussed in the video, probably some of the most exciting news which we have touched on previously, is that Mine’s are indeed developing a full engine upgrade called the Mine’s Super Complete Engine. We’re now aware that Mine’s will be shooting for about 600ps peak power but that, in the Mine’s tradition, the power will be delivered very early and in a very responsive manner.
Mine’s have always been about maximum response at modest power levels. That was powerfully evident in the Mine’s R34 GT-R of days gone by. Now by utilizing Mahle forged pistons and titanium I-beam conrods they plan to lighten and strengthen the VR38’s internals to be stronger and more free revving. They’re shaving off more than 300g per cylinder with just these mods.
The second video (after the jump) goes into great detail on the mine’s Super Big Throttle Body coming soon also.
Another top notch production produced by Craig Lieberman. Five street Nissan GT-R’s in various states of tune battle it out for glory on Buttonwillow Circuit. Well maybe not glory, maybe just for the sake of fun. Which it looks to be a lot of.
ARQRAY have completed, released and priced their exhaust for the Nissan GT-R. The JASMA certified original design exhaust features a 76.3mm cat back section which splits into two 60.5mm pipes. These are silenced by mufflers on each side and exit into 4x 115mm outlets.
The exhaust is manufactured in 304 grade stainless steel and sells for 262,500 yen.
ARQRAY have created a video with an exhaust sound demo, check it out below.
