Earlier this month the Amuse crew brought their R35 Phantom GT-R back to Tsukuba Circuit for another go at setting a new R35 lap record.
With the Amuse Hi-tech ROM, exhaust system, and newly increased boost levels the car is now outputting over 600 hp with light tuning!?!?!?
With Tanabe-san behind the wheel again, the car brought a best lap of 59.061, a few tenths quicker than the Mine’s Motorsports Nissan GT-R. There is no doubt that the car is easily capable of breaking into the 58 second range in its current state.
All this the buzz that rumored it would be extremely difficult to modify this car. Sounds like a challenge to me, which could have been precisely what the marketing division at Nissan wanted all along!
