1200ps GT-R reached 323.2km/h… you will be surprised to read more. 1200㎰のGT-Rが323.2km/hに到達・・・、もっと読めば驚きます!

An R35 that has been modified to 1200ps managed to average 323.2km/h… Yes, sure. Not surprising at all, is it? Well… until you hear that the record was achieved by a blind man!

Mike Newman, an ex-bank manager… I don’t know why he is always introduced as “an ex-bank manager” but all the media coverage do so… set a record of 299.3km/h last year with a Porsche 911 Turbo.

At that point, he has set the world’s fastest blind driver record but he challenged himself, probably wanting to break the 200mph barrier. Newman used the Elvington Airfield and its 1.8-mile (2.9 km) runway where he was required to perform back to back runs. At the end of the two runs, his speed was averaged to a new record of 200.9 mph (323.2 km/h).


ニューマン氏、Speed of Sightという身体障害者のためのモータースポーツ団体を主宰しており、その活動のアピール、またハンディキャップを克服するチャレンジ精神を見せつけてくれました。ちなみに2011年には全盲者による水上最速記録樹立・・・
Newman keeps breaking the blind land speed record in order to promote the organization, Speed of Sight. This charity makes it possible for people with disabilities to experience the thrill of driving a car around a race track. In addition to land speed records, the Speed of Sight website also says Newman has set a water speed record

Newman, also, did acrobatic vertical loops (aka, loop-the-loops). He is a brave… one heck of an adrenaline junky! lol

For the first time, we have documented the overhaul & refresh process of an R35 in a film.
The very first DVD released by GT-R Magazine.
The length of the DVD is 167 minutes and will be on sale from 5th March.

GT-R Magazine is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. As a commemorative gesture, we will release our very first DVD magazine, highlighting on our 2007 R35 GT-R, staff car, which has been driven over 123,000km for the last 6 years. We have pulled the car apart and checked how worn and torn the car really is and refreshed anything necessary. This R35 has been our everyday car as well as a circuit machine.

Our GT-R was diagnosed at NISMO Omori factory. Engine, transmission and chassis were pulled a part by highly skilled mechanics and received careful inspection. Many of the damaged parts were either replaced or updated with parts from the latest R35. After an overhaul, we brought the car to winding roads as well as a circuit to check for its potential. The DVD also looks closely into 2014 R35 and features extensive test drives in all sorts of situations.

The 167 minutes DVD comes with a 20page special booklet. This DVD is dedicated to GT-R owners of all generations as well as potential buyers of R35s.
