    Russ Smith’s market headliners ‘They’re the things you might expect on a car bought from auction in Japan and being sold on in the USA as a quick lip’ #Nissan-Fairlady-240ZG / #Nissan-240ZG / #Nissan-240Z / #Datsun-240Z / #Datsun / #Nissan / #Nissan-homologation / #Datsun-240ZG / #Datsun-240

    Nissan’s homologation hero… Japan-only #Fairlady 240ZG to be offered by RM in Monterey

    Something of a mystical beast because they were only officially sold in Japan (though we believe three now live in the UK), the Nissan-Fairlady-240ZG was created to homologate aerodynamic parts for GT and Group 4 racing. They are rarely seen on the world market so we asked Datsun Z-car expert Alan Thomas for his take on the no reserve offering from RM Sotheby’s at Monterey on August 24, during the Pebble Beach week.

    ‘Nissan initially built 500 240ZGs to satisfy the homologation, but they sold so well that more than 1000 were eventually made. Good, genuine and original HS30-H model 240ZGs command a premium in Japan and they are currently changing hands privately for well over £60k [I know of a lovely example that sold for over £71,000 last year] but they must be genuine. The main proof for this is in the documentation for the car – the original Japanese papers state the extra length and width, as well as the different internal factory coding – but good provenance is also important because there are occasional fakes. The body style itself is easily replicated, and there are many tribute cars on Japanese roads.

    ‘Furthermore, it’s important to note that Japanese market models never had the word ‘Datsun’ anywhere on them when they left the factory. They were, proudly, Nissan product through and through. There’s no such thing as a ‘ #Datsun-240ZG ’ – despite Tamiya’s 1⁄12th scale model of that name.

    ‘This particular example does not appear to be top level, with the bonnet extension panel suffering from sagging – the sun and heat in Japan will do this – and misalignment. That’s fairly easily fixed, so I don’t know why it hasn’t been done. Or rather I probably do. They’re the things you might expect on a car bought from auction in Japan and being sold on in the USA as a quick lip after a bit of hype. From what I see in the photos it’s also not very original – non-original but period-style wheels and rear strut brace among other things. I’d say that it would be a £35k-ish car in Japan.’

    In the glossy press photos this appears to be a tempting opportunity to acquire one of the most sought-after #Z-cars – but there are a few factors that raise one expert’s eyebrows.

    END OF TERM Nissan GT-R The latest GT-R is more useable than ever, claims Nissan. So did that claim turn out to be true? And does it make for a better car overall?

    CAR: #Nissan-GT-R / #Nissan / #2017 / #2017-Nissan-GT-R

    In the end I spent 99 days with the #2017-model-year Nissan GT-R. And in the end I loved it to bits. That verdict was far from a foregone conclusion, however. The whole reason for running this latest GT-R – albeit for a less-than-ideal three months only – was to see if Nissan had softened the car sufficiently to make it liveable with seven days a week. That was always going to be the key question that needed answering. And the simple fact is, it has.

    If there’s so much as a single millilitre of petrol in your veins then you could easily put up with the GT-R’s firm but no longer ridiculous ride quality. Same goes for its much improved transmission, its much reduced tyre noise, its more soothing engine refinement and its slightly less manic steering. In all these areas Nissan has, without question, improved the GT-R and made it more useable as an everyday car in the process.

    But there was a second key question, namely: if Nissan really had polished away the GT-R’s rough edges to a point where you can live with this car daily, then how might that affect its core ability to make your heart explode when the right road appears in the windscreen? Because this is ultimately what the Nissan GT-R has always been all about. No other car, with the exception of a few of the most hardcore Porsches and the Ferrari F40, has ever been able to make the hairs on the back of my neck stand to attention like a GT-R does when you give it the beans over a deserted mountain road. So if this aspect of it went missing, I’m not sure the thing would deserve to wear its badge any longer.

    But I’m glad to say that the madness is still very much intact. You need to press a few buttons to unleash it, true, but on the right road and ideally when there’s no one else around to witness it, the nutcase that has always been at the centre of the Nissan GT-R is still very much in situ. If anything, in fact, it is more unhinged than ever before because the suspension is that little bit softer nowadays, I that little bit more in tune with the average UK B-road, which means you don’t get airborne quite so often as you once did, which basically means you can generate, and carry, even more speed. Everywhere.

    It’s not perfect, though. During my time with #OY66-UOP I became increasingly irritated by a piece of plastic trim near the steering wheel that would fizz randomly to a point where it began to bore a hole into the middle of my brain on some journeys. The car’s packaging is also ridiculous in terms of the amount of road space it occupies relative to the amount of interior space it fails to offer. And the combination of its silly fuel consumption (22mpg sometimes, more like 17-18mpg most of the time) allied to a 74-litre tank meant its real-world touring range was always an issue.

    But you put up with these things in a GT-R because the payback, when it arrives, is immense. And now that they’ve smoothed away most of the rough edges – none of which added to the purity of the driving experience; they were just flaws, pure and simple – the Nissan GT-R has become a more complete car. And a more desirable one as a result.

    To a point where I genuinely can’t think of another vehicle that offers more raw ability for less, even if its weight and packaging are a bit dubious. Bottom line: I know 82 grand (basic) sounds like an insane amount of money for a Nissan, but this ain’t no ordinary Nissan. It’s a GT-R first, and a Nissan second; always has been. And for the 2017 model year version the GT-R happens to be in better shape than at any point in its near 50-year history. Which, as you’ll know, is saying something.

    Feature Car / Nissan GTR R35 Track Pack (UK Edition) Track focused
    Text : Mat Canyon Photos: Shah [email protected] Photography

    Ever since the initial release in 2008, the R35 GTR has become an ever so popular car to own and race. It was the brain child of the man who saved Nissan, Carlos Ghosn. With his guidance, Nissan was able to produce a worthy successor to the very iconic R34 GTR. Due to its popularity and the fact it has become the world’s first GTR to be available worldwide, it would be no surprise to have the R35 GTR be spotted everywhere around the world.

    Just like what Nissan did with their previous GTR models, they have also produced special trims which would be considered by enthusiasts as ‘rare models’ like the 400R for the R33 or the Z-Tune for the R34. This R35 we show before you on these pages is the highly track focused Nissan GTR R35 Track Pack which went on sale after the R35 GTR V-Spec was sold out.


    Of course, it is just another Nissan GTR R35, right? So what would make the GTR Track Pack so special? It doesn’t come with any added horsepower compared to a normal GTR. Well for starters, the GTR Track Pack is a lighter version of the normal GTR, about 15kg lighter. It is because for this trim, they ditched the rear seats and are using lighter alloys. Other improvements that were put into the Track Pack are stiffer springs and new brake cooling ducts which is able to lower the operating temperature by 100 degrees C. It also comes with a full titanium muffler from the factory. It is like the Japanese equivalent of the Porsche 911 GT3.

    This GTR R35 track pack runs on an ECU Tech and it currently puts out 543 brake horsepower with 465lb ft of torque. While everything else is remained stock, the owner wanted to make this GTR like his own. So he added some subtle exterior parts like the Varis wing and sideskirts. With these subtle bits, it keeps the car clean and tasteful looking at the same time.

    Instead of the normal Bridgestone Potenzas that normally come with the GTR, the GTR Track Pack comes with a set of Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600 tires wrapped around six spoke Rays wheels. With the new hardware, it gives a more tracked focused GTR for those track addicts who can afford to own one. Furthermore, for being the UK spec Track Pack, this GTR is considerably rare in Malaysia.

    It may look like any other GTR you see on the road, but not only the trim is different, it is also said to give a better feel with the surface of the track as well. Special thanks to ATS Sunway and Terana Auto and of course the owner of this exquisite ride to let it be featured on our pages.

    TECHNICAL DATA Model: #Nissan-GTR-R35-Track-Pack (UK Edition) / #Nissan-GTR-R35 / #Nissan-GTR / #Nissan /
    Engine: 3.8L #VR38DETT #V6 / #Nissan-VR38DETT / #Nissan-GT-R
    Max Power: 543bhp @ 6400rpm
    Max Torque 465 lb ft @ 3200-5800rpm
    Drivetrain: 6-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission, 4WD
    Brakes: Brembo
    Wheels and Tires: Rays Wheels, Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600 Run Flats,
    Exterior: Varis Spoiler, Varis Side Skirt.

    Understated looks with over the top punch.
    UK Track Package takes the GTR to a whole new level.

    The story of these twin GT-Rs is one of classic values, camaraderie, and dreams fulfilled. To hugely misquote Forrest Gump, ‘awesome is as awesome does’… Words: Daniel Bevis. Pics: Olliee Wildsmith. Walk designed in japan, built in Belgium and killing it on the UK’s streets and shows, these two liberty walkkitted R35 #Nissan GT-Rs set the standard.


    / #Nissan-GTR-R35 / #Nissan-GTR / #Nissan / #VR38DETT / #V6 / #Nissan-VR38DETT / #Nissan-GT-R

    RUN FORREST, RUN

    Twin Liberty Walk-kitted Nissan R35 GT-Rs are a match made in wide arch heaven


    As fans of the silver screen will enthusiastically tell you, 1994’s Forrest Gump is one of the greatest tales ever committed to celluloid. It’s not so much the vast budget, the sprawling scenescapes, the all-star cast, or the kickass soundtrack (although those are all, naturally, important factors), but the fact that what seems like a complex story is actually very simple: it’s all about how greatness can stem from humble beginnings, how having strong and clear values will win out in the face of all kinds of adversity. It’s a principle that’s oft retold in various formats, but the heartwarming truth of that now-careworn ‘life is like a box of chocolates’ motif sits at the core of it all.

    It’s also a theme that we find mirrored in countless walks of life. Take these artfully matched Nissan GT-Rs, for example, resplendent in Liberty Walk’s finest – the twins are named LB Shadow and LB Pearl, and the story is rooted in humble beginnings. Just ask Phil Hird, owner of the grey car, LB Shadow: ‘I’ve been modifying cars since I got my licence at 17, with my first car being a MkII Fiesta,’ he recalls. Yep, cars don’t come a lot more humble than that. ‘After that I moved onto a diesel Golf, and then I spent a bomb on an Audi A3 which got lost in the floods in 2007.’ It’s not reading like the strongest start so far, is it?

    Remember that Vietnam scene where Forrest’s platoon is wading through chest-high floodwater? This whole modifying lark can seem that way sometimes, can’t it. ‘Big ol’ fat rain!’

    ‘In 2008 I started again with a brand new Audi A5, fitting a one-off bodykit to it,’ Phil continues. ‘But then kids came along, so by necessity I moved onto a Q7. And then the GT-R came into my life in 2014…’

    Well, there is an argument to be made for Nissan’s supercoupe being a sensible choice, isn’t there? Everyday usability, baked-in Japanese reliability, strong residuals. Ah hell, you only live once though, don’t you? Coming from a starting point of a tired old 1980s hatchback, if the opportunity to play with a GT-R presents itself, you’d regret it forever if you didn’t pull the trigger. It’d be like slapping fate in the face.

    ‘I found the car on the Supercar Rooms website, it had low miles and was a great price,’ says Phil, ‘so I called and paid a deposit on it until I could get to their showroom to see it! A week later I drove the five hours to see the car and testdrive it – from the moment I put the pedal down I wanted the R35 to be mine. So as soon as I got back to the showroom I bought it!’ Some might call it reckless to put a deposit on a car sight unseen; others would say you’re just rolling the dice. Sometimes you just have to play it the Gump way, go with the flow and allow history and culture to swell around you.

    Phil wasted no time getting stuck into the mods, as the art of tweaking GT-Rs (a car, remember, that Nissan originally claimed was ‘untuneable’!) is now well-established and, frankly, required. He started with a set of 20in Vossen CV4 rims and then moved on to a full-on carbon-fibre Knight Racer kit, complete with bumper fins, full diffuser, and all manner of carbon tricks. Then came the 21in Strasse wheels, at which point Phil opted to take a little time out from the build to go old-school, like Forrest returning to Greenbow, Alabama. The counterpoint to the GT-R project lay in his 1967 VW Beetle, a car – named ‘Elmo’ – that he fully restored himself, running air-ride and winning copious awards. This tells you a little about Phil’s skills, as well as his focus.

    But the GT-R was just sitting there all along, its carbon-fibre gleaming, goading Phil on to take the next step. And who was he to refuse?

    ‘In September 2015 I ended up speaking with Jean-Marie de Roover from the Belgium GTR Store,’ Phil explains. ‘I’d seen his Liberty Walk GT-R on the Battalion30Five Facebook group, which we’re both members of, and a Liberty Walk GT-R was kind of the final dream for my car! We discussed building it, and options we could add to the car to make it a one-of-one styling exercise so it was bespoke, that could be seen as an individual build amongst the Liberty Walk community.

    After a few ideas and lots of discussion, a deposit was paid and it was all systems go!’ You see, sometimes, you just have to be in the right place at the right time. Moving in the right circles helps you, but occasionally these things are shimmered along simply because the cosmos is smiling on you.

    ‘A few weeks later, Dan and Mike Jackson, who are good friends of mine and utter GT-R fans, heard that a guy from the UK had booked his car in with Jean-Marie,’ Phil goes on.

    ‘While chatting on the phone one night, Dan was talking about creating an LB build of his own but was unsure who the other person was who’d already signed up with the Belgium GTR Store. Eventually I gave in and told him everything! Dan was very supportive and couldn’t believe what I was actually going to do – and a month or so later it was confirmed that Dan and Mike had also booked their car in for a Liberty Walk transformation.

    It makes sense at this point to meet the Jacksons, doesn’t it? Dan and Mike are a father-andson team, with Mike holding the impressive distinction of being, at 68 years of age, the oldest known owner of a Liberty Walk car. Which is a very cool boast, indeed. No battered Micras here, this is a guy who approaches every day with flair and élan.

    ‘We have always been interested in cars,’ says Mike, ‘especially Japanese cars. Before the R35 GT-R was a 350Z, and we’ve even owned a Nissan Bluebird! But we fell in love with the R35 after driving one at an experience day at Elvington airfield with Everyman Racing.

    Not long after, this car was purchased from Alexanders Prestige in Boroughbridge.’ As bought, the guys found themselves gazing lovingly at a totally standard, UK-spec 2009 Black Edition, and it remained stock for quite some time, barring the addition of a Y-pipe and a remap. But the lure of GT-R tuning proved too strong, and their mate Phil certainly wasn’t helping matters…

    ‘In December 2015, Battalion30Five held their end of year meet at Black Hangar Studios,’ says Phil. ‘I took my GT-R along, with Dan and Mike in theirs, also knowing that Jean- Marie would be coming over from Belgium with his Liberty Walk R35. From the moment we saw his car, we knew we’d made the right decision. His attention to detail was first class, along with his knowledge. We all came away from the event dreaming of the day we’d get to deliver our own cars to Belgium and get the builds rolling.’

    And so, at the end of January, the lads boarded a ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge for the overnight trip, driving the next day down to the Belgium GTR Store. They took the tour, chatted over all of their ideas with Jean- Marie, then made their way back to the ferry to play the waiting game. (Which, as Homer Simpson will tell you, is a game that sucks, and you’re better off with Hungry Hungry Hippos.) The cars were in Belgium for three months in all, with Jean- Marie feeding the guys’ enthusiasm with constant photo updates of how the projects were progressing, while they in turn worked hard to create specific design templates of the graphics they wanted applied to the cars for the GTR Store to replicate.

    After what felt like aeons of thumb-twiddling and nail-biting, Phil, Mike and Dan found themselves back aboard a ferry in late April, ready to see LB Shadow and LB Pearl for the first time in their classy new threads. ‘Man, I couldn’t stop shaking at the sight of the car that was now coming home with me,’ Phil breathes in an awestruck whisper. It’s evident that this car still thrills the hell out of him, still sends an electric shiver down his spine. ‘And the rest is history, really,’ he says, brightening, returning to reality with a gentle bump. ‘The car lives at home with me, most nights I just sit there and stare at it.’ Well, when he’s not out there enjoying the vast swells of hard-revving fury from that VR38DETT, we imagine…

    ‘Our car was already a headturner, but now it’s just insane,’ Mike chips in, evidently just as awestruck as his buddy. ‘People video it and take photos everywhere we go. We use it all the time, too – having air suspension means we can pretty much go anywhere without worrying about damaging it, and we’re planning to go to as many car shows as possible so we can just get out there and share the car with everyone.’ A very cheering and altruistic sentiment, to be sure, and it’s clear that these guys are enthusiasts in the old-school sense; they haven’t chosen Liberty Walk kits simply to win the intangible celebrity of Instagram fame, but just because they thought it’d be cool. And they’re right, it is. So now they want to share the whole experience with like-minded petrolheads.

    ‘Yep, we go to a lot of meets and shows,’ Phil confirms, ‘and charity events for sick children, too. The reactions to the cars are always amazing.’ And that is the crux of the thing – Phil, Mike and Dan didn’t build these cars to show off, they did it just because they wanted to touch a little of that oriental magic; their inherent good nature and strength of character means that these builds are all heart. You see, life really is like a box of chocolates. And right here we have a pair of angular, exotic chocolates with extraordinarily gooey caramel centres.

    ‘THE REACTIONS TO THE CARS IS AMAZING


    VERSION 1 VS. VERSION 2
    You’ll no doubt have spotted that the cars’ bodykits are subtly different to one another. This is because liberty walk don’t just offer one identikit set menu, but are always tweaking and broadening the range; LB pearl wears the version 1 kit, while LB shadow is rocking version 2, the principle difference being in the rear spoilers. This makes sense for Phil, Dan and Mike as, while the cars are unmistakably twins, it was important to keep each one unique.

    Richard Fisheer’s Boss S14

    THE BOSS hot ride: #Nissan-240SX Speed Star: 560bhp LS1-powered Boss S14 Defining Car Culture. Words Paddy McGrath & Ben Chandler. Photography Mark Riccioni. We caught up with Chicago-based car builder, drifter and self-confessed Air Jordan hoarder, Mr Fish and his positively bananas Boss-kitted S14 drift car.

    NISSAN S14 It may look like a Dodge Challenger from the front, but we can promise you it’s all Nissan on the inside.

    In words, at least, this is a car that will almost certainly evoke a sigh or two. It has all the right (or wrong, depending on how you choose to look at it) ingredients for a drift car: an LS V8 motor, a Rocket Bunny kit, some SSR mesh wheels and Air Lift Performance suspension. There was a time when this combination would have blown people away, but now it’s almost the expected, and maybe the proven choice for a fun street/track car. But, we’ve long since learned that it’s not how you stand by your car, it’s how you race your car.

    This may not be the very first time you’ve seen this S14. This particular car has appeared on the internet and done the round on Instagram, but we do feel that it’s the first time a UK magazine has managed to capture this beautiful piece of automotive art. It’s still evolving too; since Mark captured these photographs, it’s now running a supercharged LS1 making 560hp to the wheels. It’s far from a show pony.

    Drifting, as a whole, is about expression. It’s always been this way and some might argue that non-competitive drifting is perhaps the purest form of drifting, as it offers the driver the most amount of freedom with regards to expressing themselves. Risky Devil, established 2007, are maybe the most recognised crew from the United States, mostly because they epitomise this mantra so well. There is a certain look that’s considered appealing in this community: as low as possible, wide wheels with lots of dish and as much smoke pouring off the back of the car as achievable.

    This 240SX delivers on all of these things. And more.

    The whole package is a visual treat. While I had seen pictures of the car before, I don’t think I appreciated the two-tone paint scheme; the black roof and pillars are maybe the most important part of tying the Boss kit into the S14, itself combining US and JDM style into one car.

    While it might not be a fully-fledged competition car, safety has still been addressed in a comprehensive way. Fixedback buckets and Takata Racing harnesses are enclosed by a full FD specification roll cage. The aim might be fun, but that doesn’t mean that the impact will be any softer if the worst happens.

    I don’t think it’s anything that we haven’t seen before but when something looks this good, it’s genuinely exciting to have this drift weapon in Fast Car. You might forget about it in an hour or you might not stop thinking about it for weeks – we’re just glad it exists.


    Wheels: Get The Look

    Speed Star Racing, or SSR to you and me, are one of the Godfathers of Japanese aftermarket wheels. They’re responsible for some of the most famous of all wheels, the SSR Super Mesh – a most beautiful wheel that can often be found on AE86s, Hakosuka GTRs and Nissan S31s. Basically old and Japanese. The wheels on Fish’s fine S14 Boss are Formula Mesh. These have been around for decades and are now certified as absolutely timeless. SSR, for the most part are all 3-piece wheels. As the name suggests, the company has been involved in racing for many years. If you look closely at the logo on the caps of SSR wheels you’ll notice an actual outline of F1 genius Graham Hill, a gentle nod to SSR’s passion for racing.

    Risky Devil

    If you’ve not heard the name Risky Devil before then stop whatever you’re doing and head over to YouTube immediately. Type ‘Risky Devil’ into the search bar and hit return. Seeing a car static in photos is one thing, but actually seeing it living and breathing in video is another. We also came across a clip on YouTube which gives a pretty good insight into the sort of life this car lives. Sure, it might make you flinch when you see it, but I respect that the car is still out there being driven as intended. It’s better than the alternative, right?

    AIR LIFT PERFORMANCE

    Fish is a long time friend and customer of Air Lift Performance. He worked directly with Corey at Air Lift on this built to create a car that sits (and drifts) super close to terra firma. The S14 Air Lift Performance kit is a bolt on solution, which means that if you have an S14 chassis, you can fi t this kit in a weekend and be airing out at work by Monday! Check out www. airliftperformance.com for further info.

    Muira-san

    This fine Japanese gentleman is a living breathing legend. Now, legend is a word that is overused, but it is certainly well deserved in this case. Why? Well, Muira-san has pretty much single handedly made bodykits cool again. The mad scientist is responsible for the Rocket Bunny brand and has also penned designs for the likes of Liberty Walk, Old N New, Pandem and more. This USDM and JDM mash-up kit found on Fish’s S14 is one of his finest designs.
