Singaporean drives his GT-R to Everest Base Camp

By Faiming_low on 28 Oct 2016 in Singapore car news, Other News

Attached Image Kah Chuan Hoong claims to be the first person in the world to drive any kind of supercar to the base camp of Mount Everest. He recently did so in his modified Nissan R35 GT-R.

Attached Image Driving from Singapore, the brave soul drove through all sorts of bad roads to reach Everest's base camp, which is located 5,380 metres above sea level. While his car appears to be relatively stock, he did raise the front ride height and modified his front bumper so that it would allow the car to clear obstacles on the journey up. We also suspect the car to have its ECU remapped to allow the car to consume lower quality fuel and also survive the high alttiude it would encounter.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
