What happens when someone likes Yonmeri Skylines and kyusha style, but doesn’t want to deal with rust and carburettors and a lack of spare parts?

They do this to an R34 four-door! External oil-cooler, GT-R badge, silver flake bumper vents, musical zokki horns, some SSR ronshan wheels and a Hakosuka rear wing.

BUDDY COPS: GX71 Chaser Avante and R34 Skyline GT-t

If this Chaser and Skyline were in a film together, it would be one of those buddy cop movies. The Chaser would be the Nick Nolte/Gary Busey/Jackie Chan character, and the the Skyline would be the Eddie Murphy/Keanu Reeves/Chris Tucker.

Murtaugh and Riggs. Tango and Cash. Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowrey.

No?

260KM/H ON A WET PUBLIC ROAD: Early morning at Mt Panorama

By in 02-05-2010 7:53 pm

I was sent an anonymous email just now with a link to this video.

For readers who aren’t familiar with Mt Panorama Circuit in Australia, it’s a street circuit in the city of Bathurst that basically consists of some very long straights up and down a mountain, with a whole lot of turns at the top that leave very little room for error. Here’s some Youtube videos of the circuit.

During non-race periods, it’s a regular street with a 60km/h speed limit that can be accessed by the public, and is regularly patrolled by the police.

Here’s what makes it interesting. This video was obviously shot very early in the morning, and that black R34 Skyline in the video looks and sounds an awful lot like Mark Berry’s car, which will be competing in the World Time Attack Challenge being held at Eastern Creek circuit in a couple of weeks.

So, is it real or a fake viral video? Right at the end, you can see the driver leave the circuit and start driving away along the public street that leads to the circuit. You can also see a car coming the other way on Conrod Straight. All I can say is either someone is either going to have some explaining to do to the Bathurst constabulary, or is very good friends with the Mt Panorama management.

Here’s a video of Mark’s R34 at Eastern Creek. Same car? You decide.
