Default Nissan Skyline 1200 BHP

Hey guys,
since i have now shifted to bombay i decided to take my car for service to the petrol pump on peddar rd. I actually went there thinking the jeep wrangler there may have been for sale, but then found out it wasn't.
Anyway, when i got talking to the owner of the garage, he showed me a 1200 bhp skyline made specially for drag racing! the car belongs to the owner of Raymonds (dont know if i shold take his name, but i'm sure you all know of him). It has Raymonds all over it with flames and carbon fibre fittings... haven't any of you seen it??? He then told me they had also worked on an 800+ BHP mustang. I was shocked... didn't know our indian drag racing had reached this level! There was also an S-type jag and a Bentley under restoration.

Hey liv

Was it an R34 Skyline? I assume you went to Kundanmal Pump. The owner Rishad is a very close friend of mine. If you need any help you can let me know anytime. I heard rumours that the Skyline was coming down since a couple of years but I guess its finally here now.

Wonder if its the same Mustang that belongs to a fellow BHPian (LandSpeed).

awesome stuff. we all know who the owner of raymonds is. he'll probably bring it for the next speedrun instead of his elise.

OT - but now that your in bbay can we hope to see your hummer etc on our streets? not to forget your porsche?

hey dippy you are absolutely correct it is the r34,saw it in flesh a few days back,and its an absolute stunner,though the flaming paint job is a turn off for a car like the skyline,but still i dont really care its a SKYLINE..and yea it is at rishad's pump,front grill is dismounted so no badging visible so far,looks like it will do what it is rumoured to do..running on drag slicks,the car looks pretty promising,1200bhp,speed run,insaneeeeeeee..!

Hi Guys,

Yes you all got it correct. The car has been here for a while now and the Mustang being discussed belongs to Neville which is now fitted/being fitted(not sure) with a massive supercharger.

yes i know of the nissan skyline it was here two months ago if i am not mistaken and i know the reason why it was brought down too. long story.. anyways the mustang is neville's and it is being supercharged, it does not belong to landspeed like most here think. this is an 84 or an 87 model mustang. you can expect a 800 plus BHP corvette getting ready too.
that is Rishad and Riyad Kundanmals pump on peddar rd. take a look on top you shall see some good cars there.
