Nismo GT-R for Top Gear show

2011-03-15 15:09

SPECIAL GT-R ON SHOW: A unique Nismo Nissan GT-R race will be on show at the Kyalami Top Gear extravaganza this weekend.

Nissan High Performance Centre Nissan Global Hatfield will showcase the first full Nismo racing GT-R developed on the R35 generation supercar at the Top Gear Festival at Kyalami this weekend.

Should the tight show schedule allow it, lucky attendees may be able to hitch a ride with dealer pricipal and GT-R encyclopedia Wilhelm Baard in the pulse-pounding car although the festival organisers have yet to confirm when and if the track will be available.

'ONE OF A KIND'

Baard said: “We will have the very first Nismo racing R35 to be produced here for South African petrol heads to enjoy and which we will subsequently be developing for local customers to compete in series such as the Altech GT Challenge.

"For the moment, this purpose-built race machine is one of a kind and will be displayed alongside a standard GT-R."

The Top Gear Festival will run from March 17-20 and is expected to attract significant crowds of South African motoring enthusiasts to Kyalami.
