Este é um dos carros visualmente mais impactantes que tivemos por aqui nos últimos tempos, e não é só o look que é badass. O Nissan GT-R R35 de Franco Scribante é um verdadeiro monstro!
Embora tenhamos apresentado alguns Monstros de pura insanidade ao longo do tempo, esta pode muito bem ser a máquina mais louca. É de Franco Scribante. O Nissan GT-R R35 preparado em tempo recorde a bater recordes no Festival de Knysna, “veste” um dos pacotes aerodinâmicos mais loucos que já vimos e, com 1600Hp, produz uma quantidade gigantesca de poder.
Preparado em apenas 3 semanas para o Hillclimb, este GT-R R35 foi originalmente construído pela Dodson Motorsport na Nova Zelândia. Isto foi apenas a sua estreia e já foi um abuso!
Although we have presented some crazy looking Monsters over time, this could very well be the craziest machine yet. It´s Franco Scribante´s Nissan GT-R R35, prepared in record time to beat Knysna Speed Festival Record, while “wearing” one of the craziest looking Aerodynamic packages we have seen and at 1600Hp, producing a titanic amount of power.
Pretty much converted into Hillclimb-spec in 3 weeks, this GT-R R35 was originally built by Dodson Motorsport in New Zealand and features the usual VR38 engine unit in quite extreme specification. Fully built 3.8L sleeved bottom end, with a custom Beryllium Ring headgasket sealing arrangement and its engine internals comprising of a Billet Winberg Crankshaft, Billet Conrods, Forged Pistons, Oversized Valves, higher lift and duration Camshafts, dry sump system, Alpha Carbon Fibre Intake Manifold, x12 Injector Dynamics Fuel Injectors. Add to that the highest spec GR6 transmission from Dodson Motorsport and you end up with a machine capable of being pushed over 2000Hp but for reliability sake, was used at a “quite modest” 1600Hp.
With vast portions of the original chassis being spaceframed now, it was also possible to achieve a ±1300kg total weight with no driver and fuel. Oh, and the Aero. Well, that´s the work of Dynamic Aero Solutions and with such short time to prepare the car while at th same time wanting as much downforce as possible to hold down this Monster, turns out the solution passed by fitting ALL the wings, including the now infamous front wing, which may have been taken and adapted from a Porsche 911 GT3 unit….
Well, in any case, final results are what matters and on that front, this machine was as successful as they come. On this video you can watch first what is the fastest ever run of a Modified Saloon in Simola HillClimb at 38.5 seconds and after that the Top 10 Shootout Winning run, with a 39.340 second run, achieved with night falling and no lights whatsoever fitted.
And remember, this was just the debut….
