GT-R Magazine 115号の巻頭特集は「愛車復調の処方箋」と題し、原因不明のトラブルや不調に悩んでいたGT-Rオーナーと、それを克復したチューナー(専門医)のドラマを綴っています。第2世代GT-Rはもちろん、3年間でなんと24万kmも走行したというR35まで、さまざまなオーナーが登場します。もうひとつ、巻頭内ではNISMO大森ファクトリーが所有するBNR32を題材に、「業界初の大実験」も敢行! 今号の表紙になっているクルマが、その実験の模様です。どんな実験をしたかは……ぜひ誌面でご覧ください!

Vol.115 of GT-R Magazine’s main feature is titled “Prescription of your car to recovery” and focuses on owners who tackled unknown causes of troubles on their GTRs. There are owners of second generation GT-R, an owner who drove 240,000km on his R35 in 3 years and many more. We have also decided to conduct an experiment, perhaps for the first time in automobile journalism, using a BNR32 at NISMO Omori factory. The GT-R on the cover is the subject being experimented on. What kind of experiment did we do… find out in our magazine.

Tokyo Auto Salon 2014: Tuned GT-Rs with Dino Dalle Carbonare

[Via Nissan Newsroom] To mark this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon, the Nissan Global Media Center invited journalist and GT-R enthusiast Dino Dalle Carbonare to choose his favorite tuned versions of the supercar.
In all, Carbonare, senior editor at Speedhunters, singled out five very special Nissan GT-R models at Asia’s largest annual tuning and customization show.

Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge MIGHT carry VR38DETT engine?! インフィニティQ50オールージュの情報すっぱ抜き!

Jalopnik humored the speech given by Infiniti America’s big boss, Johan de Nysschen, enough. We will keep quiet and direct you to Jalopnik’s funny take on the presentation of Infiniti Q50.

But we were so stunned by this car and went straight to our reliable sources. Yes, when someone says “sources”, one would expect it to be just a rumor… But remember how accurate our information had been on GT-R NISMO?

1. Nissan/Infiniti has not made a decision on the release of Q50 Eau Rouge yet.
2. Running prototypes will be built later this year.
3. The 500ps engine is most likely going to be the de-tuned VR38DETT

We really would like to see Q50Eau Rouge in the market!


「If we built this car I would expect it to feature over 500hp and 600lb/ft of torque. Through our various alliance partners we have access to a range of engines featuring this performance capability which, with a fair amount of engineering effort, can be developed to exhibit Infiniti character and accommodated within the Q50 engine bay. The engine we are evaluating for the Q50 Eau Rouge is a big personality, V-cylinder engine with forced induction. I think our engineers have been waiting for a project like this」というスピーチでした。

「もし、この車を作るとなったら最高出力500ps以上、最大トルク82.953 kg·m以上になるでしょう。数多くのアライアンス・パートナーのエンジンをベースに、技術的努力によってインフィニティのキャラクターづけをし、Q50のボンネットに納めることになるでしょう。Q50オールージュが搭載するエンジンは強烈な個性となり、V型シリンダーに過給機を備えることになるでしょう。弊社のエンジニアはこのようなプロジェクトを待ち望んでいたに違いありません」


まっ、そんな話はさておき、気になるますよね、Q50オールージュ。そこでGT-R Otakuメンバーが“探り”を入れてくれました。


GT-R OtakuではQ50オールージュの投入、陰ながら応援しています!!!
