Default Gautam Singhania's drag-spec Skyline; 0-100 : 2.5 secs. 0-200 : 6.7 secs

Most of us know about the drag spec skyline , the car is built to world class standards , it has been in hibernation since its last run nearly 3 years back.


It was time to go through the car once again, we were roped in to be a part of this

The Vbox numbers
0-100: 2.5secs
0-200 : 6.7secs
with a co-passenger in the car

RWD? How did you manage the traction? More details on the work done please, and if possible, work-in-progress pics of the build.

Mindblowing machine. Look forward to the videos.

I've seen the Drag Race video of this Drag-Spec Skyline on youtube. It was smoking hot watching this Skyline drag. Would surely love to read detailed specs of this Skyline. I guess GS bought this off from KA and then re-did it. IIRC, This was owned by Bangalore based Guy, Ranjeet earlier, who sold it to GS. I remember seeing this at Speedway 2008

This car has always been owned by GS, in its present form.

Those Drag tyres means business!

I can't gather from the initial post that Racetech did any mods on the car, but was present at the occasion of breaking its hibernation, and maybe they recorded the V-box figures. Would be glad if I am proved wrong

1000hp CRD India R33 Skyline

This car is a 7 sec car, which would 9 seconds on Indian roads. Straight from the guy who worked on it. This was done in Australia. @Racetech waiting for more, did you also worked on the car?

Good slicks, custom suspension and a very good driver.

The car was not built by us , henceforth we will be involved with it.

Ferrari 348, Ferrari 458 Italia, Ariel Atom, souped up Honda S2000, Lotus Elise, T-Rex and a 1000bhp Nissan Skyline.

Hats Off to "The complete man".

I just remember what some auto magazine quoted about this car,

--"The 0-100 kph is so violent that you feel the horn button would come flying off from the steering wheel and would hit you".

--"The only thing that this car doesn't has is probably a kitchen sink".

--"The car is so fast that it needs a parachute brake to bring it to rest".

How could you forget the gorgeous-gorgeous Gallardo and the insanely modded Evo VII. His garage brims with taste. One of the best tastefully handpicked cars in the country
