Jindai-ji R32 revival documentary! 深大寺自動車整備日記その1

Jindai-ji is not too far away from the center of Tokyo. But it’s a quiet residential area and it is famous for its temple, soba and festivals. A gardener, a soba chef, a guard man, a panel beater, a car dealer living in Jindai-ji got together to revive the rotting R32. It was parked for 10years to rot and they plan to bring it back to life.

This is an introduction of a small documentary which is exclusively shown on our website! Stay tuned at GTRotaku for more!

Japan’s best machines go head to head! 日本の最高峰バトル

Nissan GT-R (R35) is one of the quickest, in terms of 0-100km/h acceleration, cars in the world. GT-R may not be able to match the performance of Bugatti Veyron but it costs nearly 2 million USD. So, it is fair to say that GT-R is one of the best cars in terms of value for money. GT-R being nearly invincible, however, may bore people. Thus we shall feature this video of GT-R battling against Suzuki GSX-1000R.

Suzuki GSX-1000R received a premium Yoshimura exhaust, and a stretch job with a longer swingarm to withstand the crazy thrust on the highway. We don’t know if the engine of this particular bike has been modified or not but it weighs no more than 170kg and has 185ps as standard… As GSX-1000R has non-synchronous transmission, shift up is fast and it reaches 130km/h in FIRST gear. The retail price of GSX-1000R is less than 2 million yen. So, it is fair to say that GSX-1000R is also one of the best bikes in terms of value for money.

On the other hand we’ve got a 600 HP GTR, but it just wasn’t Nissan’s day. No matter who wins in this battle, we are witnessing the best of what Japan has to offer.

Such a cool film yet I don’t know what the story is… 凄い動画だけどストーリーは解読不能w

I have absolutely no idea what this short film is on about but… who cares when it looks as spectacular as this one? Monster Energy released this short film on YouTube on 1st of April. But it was no April fools.

Could anyone tell us what the story line is? lol
