In 2016, a 59-year-old Singaporean engineer drove his Nissan GT-R for 16,000 km from Singapore to the Everest Base Camp in Tibet and back.
Now, the legendary vehicle is up for sale on sgCarMart!
A grandfather of one, Mr Hoong, wanted to test the limits of the GT-R as stated by Nissan. The car manufacturer claimed that the vehicle is a supercar that can be driven by anyone, anytime, anywhere.
Nicknamed Godzilla, the 2008 GT-R only acted up only once throughout the entire odyssey.
According to the Straits Times, Mr Hoong took 22 days to arrive at the Everest Base Camp (North) with a Tibetan guide.
He then took another 20 days to drive back to Singapore, clocking 16,000 km and 2,600 litres of fuel.
Additionally, Mr Hoong made several modifications to the car for the journey. The full list can be found in the listing.
Being the first of its own to travel to Everest from Singapore and back, the Nissan GT-R is currently going for $218,000 on sgCarMart.
With 7 years of COE left, the 2008 Sports Car spits out 473 bhp of power with an engine cap of 3,799 cc. Equipped with a premium Bose sound system, the vehicle still has its original grey seats and is in tip-top condition.

A BlueSG car recklessly speeds up in a merging lane and forces the camcar driver (with his pregnant wife in the car) to swerve and prevent a collision.
Like all electric vehicles, the Bollore Bluecar comes with instant torque which allows the vehicle to accelerate quicker than internal combustion engine (ICE) cars.
You can clearly see the disparity in acceleration in the video.
Let's look at some R&R (not rest and relaxation)
But, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter how fast you can accelerate. There are rules and regulations that need to be adhered to.
According to the Highway Code:
In the case of this video, the camcar driver has the right of way as he was in front of the BlueSG car, which was on the yielding lane.
Furthermore, there was no need for the BlueSG car to overtake the camcar as the road was not congested and there was no junction ahead.
However, there is the possibility that the BlueSG driver was rushing to save a few dollars due to the company’s rental plans.
According to BlueSG, users are charged $0.36 per minute during their rental on top of a monthly fee, which explains why BlueSG drivers are typically seen rushing around all the time.
Careless driving in Singapore racks up a fine of $200 and 6 demerit points. Just FYI.
TL;DR – BMW driver steals a parallel carpark lot from another BMW by edging headfirst into the small vacant lot. The result? Video footage of some crap parking.
Here’s a 47-second video of a Beemer stealing a carpark lot….from another Beemer!
Here’s a rough breakdown of what’s happening.
The 3 Series (car at the back) tailgates the 1 Series (car in front trying to park).
Both their hazard lights are on.
As the 1 Series tries to parallel park by reversing in, the 3 Series drives headfirst into the lot.
Yes. Headfirst into a small parallel lot.
The 1 series driver then comes out of the car to confront the 3 series driver (the conversation is inaudible, so we cannot tell what they’re saying to one another).
What could have caused this?
While we don’t know what happened before the recording starts, some people mention that the 1 Series could have been the culprit and not jump to conclusions.
It’s a BMW. Not a VW.
Head-in parallel parking
I don’t know about you all, but it’s just cringy to watch.
Yes, I understand the 3 Series is trying to get the lot before the 1 Series reverses in, but it doesn’t change the fact that it irks me, especially when you see the 3 Series stuck at an odd angle in the parallel lot.
Wah. This person raging siol. Are you the 1 Series driver?
Honestly, most cars these days come with a dashcam installed. Try not to get caught doing stupid things on video so we don’t have to write about you.
TL;DR – Ang Moh cyclist harasses Lexus RX by cycling in the middle of the road, obstructing its path and swerves between cars dangerously.
Here’s another reason LTA should come up with some sort of SOP for cyclists to make them accountable for their actions.
In this 70-second video, you can see the male cyclist cycling recklessly to harass the Lexus driver. Putting not just himself but other motorist in danger.
Cyclist vs SUV
The cyclist blocks a Lexus RX on the first lane along River Valley Road near Liang Court.
Honestly, I’ve watched the video like twenty times, and I still have no idea whatafrak the cyclist is doing.
1. He’s cycling without placing his hands on the handlebars of the bicycle
2. His chest and stomach are exposed (eww?)
3. He raises his right hand as if indicating he’s turning right, but he doesn’t turn right
Where it happened
Just in case you’re a little disoriented and unsure where this incident took place.
What’s the trigger?
It looks like the cyclist was trying to indicate that he wanted to turn right on Mohamed Sultan Road, but the Lexus did not allow him to do so.
In response, the cyclist gives the SUV a shove and dangerously swerves through the cars in front to get ahead of the Lexus and block the driver’s path.
It’s just a matter of time.
There are cyclists out there who abide by the laws. Please don’t ‘sabo’. Thanks.
