have wanted a nissan skyline all my life, and would love to see this one in action in mumbai. More pics people, we need more pics. In the meanwhile, heres a video of a skyline r33 that almost jumped off the dyno. It has a lovely exhaust note too(sheer music to ears)

hey guys, i think that it is the same car from the pic.i was told the car was not tuned in India. He bought the car here and then sent it out of the country for tuning. When i saw the car it had def been tuned outside of the country. It does have Nos shots. it has to be seen to believe.

when I first mentioned about this car, none of you believed me. I posted the article in May. So it is finally out. I will not say much about the car, just to let you all know that I have been associated from day One on building this car from sctratch. Most of the speculations mentioned here are true. She was tested on the dyno, and the figures are not fake. Be patient, still sorting out the right combinations for use in India ie; different tyres/ suspension and boost levels. You have to see it on track to believe what she is capable of. India has never seen anything like this. Wait till she has her first official run at an event. She has already been test driven in India.

Happy & Safe driving till then

Available only in the US for drag racing.

Lucky guys can spot it late at night very occasionaly in Bangalore.

For me the question is not "is it 700bhp or 1070bhp?" or "is it 8.28secs or 9.84secs" but rather "will it show up at the next event??"

I know that a car like this has the potential to re-schedule speedrun by a few days here and there. All i hope is that things line up and we do get to see this beast doing what its designed to do!

Dominator, do tell us as much as you can at the moment!
Also heres another thread about the "rumoured" 1000bhp skyline that you might have missed > http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/super-...bangalore.html < Im sure there are some questions in that thread you would be the best person to answer

Hi,

As far as I know from my sources which are very reliable the car is not owned by GS. It has been temporarily brought down from Australia and will return back there after the Speed Run if and when it does take place.

Mumbai is planning one soon. Hormarz at Autocar should be able to answer that.As and when it happens, it sure will be exciting to have the Skyline running. Bangalore has no events planned in the near future, as the Jakkur airport will not be let out for any motor car event apart from avaition. Sad
