This Week at J-Spec

Update: It’s not a genuine GT-R after all! Snap. Who feels like an idiot then eh? That’d be me.

I nearly wept when I saw this C10 listed on J-Spec this week. It’s a genuine C10 GT-R (though with an L28 and an R32 gearbox among other modifications, so it’s far from standard), and even more awesomely, the L28’s been bored out to a 3ltr. I wish I could get my hands on some audio of this thing—it must sound phenomenal. And with only 3500km on the dial, this is about as good as it gets. If you’ve got about 35 grand burning a hole in your rising sun emblazoned wallet, your search is over!

    Oh my god. That one’s just right. It’s got everything….and so clean!

    Would have been nicer if it would still have the 2l DOHC engine. I think those cars are too rare for messing them up.

    Well it’s this car from Red Megaphone (who don’t seem to claim that it’s a GTR, just a Skyline). So maybe it’s just some artistic license with the advertisement title. There’s a walkaround vid at that link too.

    No, it’s not an authentic GT-R, as Krispy says.

    This car has been for sale for quite a while actually. No disrespect to J-Spec but their “titles” for some of the older cars are often inaccurate.

    Very interesting car though! Very custom… still not sure about the “ZG” flares on the front though…

    Yeah, I spoke to J-Spec about it after Krispy’s comment actually, and they didn’t realise it wasn’t genuine so they’ll be fixing it soon.

    My bad, sorry folks!

    I thought that might be the case. Red Megaphone has a car described as a GTR and it’s somewhat more expensive…(4 times more expensive!)

    Nice though.
