  1. Mercedes-AMG GT R Discontinued After 2021: Report source: https://www.motor1.com/news/461538/mercedes-amg-gt-r-discontinued/ Order banks for the GT R will allegedly close by the end of this year. For several years, the hottest Mercedes-AMG GT you could get was the GT R. Then came the Black Series, which did more than just supplant the GT R as the hottest car in the GT family. It set a new record as the fastest overall production car at the Nürburgring, which is unreal for a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive machine. Now, it could be pushing the GT R out of existence. That's the word according to a video report from Allcarnews on YouTube, which states the GT R will disappear after the 2021 model year. The source is an alleged email sent to Mercedes-Benz dealerships stating the former GT flagship was discontinued for 2021. Furthermore, order banks for 2021 model-year GT Rs are said to close forever on December 29, with any existing orders not being converted to 2022. The email featured in the video looks legitimate, but we've contacted Mercedes-Benz for an official confirmation and we'll let you know if/when we receive that. At approximately $163,000, the AMG GT R isn't a cheap car by any means. However, it's in a completely different financial universe compared to the lineup's new flagship, the GT Black Series. Pricing for that car starts at $325,000 – nearly double the MSRP for the GT R. The extra cash doesn't give you double the horsepower, but the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 under the long hood is a completely different animal. Its flat-plane-crank design that redlines at 7,200 rpm and generates 730 hp (537 kW), all sent to the rear wheels. With gobs of aero tweaks, upgraded suspension, and a carbon fiber diet, it laps the 'Ring in 6 minutes, 43.6 seconds. As for the rest of the GT line, the base model just received a power boost to 523 hp (385 kW). That brings the GT much closer to GT R performance, and with the Black Series serving as the flagship, cutting some fat from the AMG lineup does make sense. The AMG GT family is also getting along in years, having debuted for the 2015 model year so don't be surprised to see more extensive changes in the near future.
  2. TL;DR - Famous Tiktoker gets advice from Lalamove driver on how to own a GTR - and this is exactly why you should never look down on any blue collar workers, especially Lalamove drivers. Sign me up for Lalamove now! Watch this Tiktok to hear some words of wisdom from the man himself. What happened? There’s a pretty famous Tiktoker (@Koocester) who goes around Singapore interviewing drivers who drive exotic/luxurious cars and ask these drivers for their professions. And throw in some words of financial advice too. In the Tiktok, he managed to get some insights into the life of this Nissan GTR driver. The driver seemed to be rather friendly and shared some of his thoughts with Koocester. He mentioned things like saving often, donating and giving to those in need, and basically being wise when spending your money. Which is quite a no-brainer but most people need to be constantly reminded of such and coming from someone who owns an arguably, $600k GTR, better heed his advice! As dope as it looks, the video received mixed reactions from netizens - racial stereotypes (c’mon we’re living in 2023!) and possibly from the saltiness of them not being able to afford one. Online Chatter Instead of celebrating his W, netizens were making a fool out of the man - L behavior… Like, seriously… There’s more… & more… This wasn’t even the last of it. Many of the comments were also targeting his English, as he said “save often(ly)”. Hmm, what's bad English if he can afford such a sick car though… I don’t care that others say, when I grow up I wanna be like this guy! ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  4. TL:DR – The title says it all. The owner claims that he ended up paying the $6.52 in the end, and the accumulated fines were due to the inability to navigate slopes at the MSCP because of the GTR’s lowered stance. When you drive an eye-catching car like a Nissan GTR, you’d better be on your best behaviour on the roads. There are digital eyes everywhere! Trying to escape paying carpark fees is not an example of ‘best behaviour’. Here’s the video for a weekend laugh. Updates on SGRV While normal tailgating out of carpark videos can be mundane, this update piqued my interest. The fines Let’s have a look at the fines. HOW IN THE WORLD DOES ONE RACK UP SUCH AN INSANE AMOUNT OF PARKING FINES? The whole argument that “Home MSCP too steep” is also somewhat weak. Park at an open-air carpark maybe? Does this car look familiar? So, we did some searching for GTRs on sgCarMart like we do every day (just to drool over things we cannot afford) and we found this: Compare that with the GTR in the video. I'm sorry this was the best shot we could get.... it's lowered after all. Do you think the hood vents on the body kits look somewhat similar? If they are the one and the same, that’s defnitely a creative way to ‘siam’ the $4000+ parking fines. Online Chatter Zero logic. Absolutely zero.

  5. A video made its way onto social media, featuring a Nissan GTR and a Mercedes-Benz A45S AMG 4MATIC Plus drag racing against each other. It was unclear where this incident took place. Here's the video for your viewing pleasure: For those that do not know, this variation of the A45S is the latest model with the highest specifications currently offered on the market. Japanese Vs German Engineering Despite the late reaction from the A45S, you can see that this 2.0-litre turbocharged hatchback quickly caught onto the 3.8-litre Godzilla within seconds. What fascinated me was the brilliance of Japanese engineering that allowed the >10 years old GTR, to go head-to-head against a modern-day sports car. Unfortunately, it was impossible to tell who won that drag race from the video. Netizens' comments Sad, but so true😥 Haiz...I was disappointed when I realised there wasn't any audio. Who do you think would have won if the A45S driver had a good reaction time? --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  6. Initially didn't wanna start a thread for it since it's already viral + a few days late and we have it on our blog. But it's been given a second boost by Mothership. And till... MDM HO CHING shared it! Haha. Keeping it here for the record. 🤪 Ho Ching to PM Lee: 你要买GTR吗? PM Lee: Errrrrrrrrrrrr. https://m.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=1002340&DL=1000
  7. Saw a neat looking yellow GTR. Very very tempted to pamper myself for yolo!? Should I ?
  8. TL;DR - An EVO and a GTR duke it out along the MCE to see which is the faster car. Is there any doubt which would win in a race? Let’s find out in this 13-second video that we found on Beh Chia Lor's Facebook page. Spoiler alert If your money was on the GTR. You’re absolutely right! What about speed cameras? These two drivers are pretty ballsy to race along the MCE, where numerous speed cameras lie in wait to catch speedsters. For those who are not familiar with the speed limit on the MCE – it’s 80km/hr. These two cars are definitely going way past 80km/hr. Online chatter Err. Okay can. RIP. LOL. WOW. I didn’t even notice that till I read this comment. Super observant.
  9. Nissan GTR rear ended McLaren 720S The big size guy which i'm assuming to be driver of McLaren, looks like a father scolding his son (GTR Driver) HAHAHAHA! Photo taken from facebook page (SGRV)
  10. We know that all of us should be keeping a safe distance from each other in such times. But we reckon these guys that have been caught on video might have taken it abit too far. This video, as posted by SG Road Vigilante, shows a slow moving camera car (claimed to be doing 80km/h but it looks more like 60km/h to us) that was traveling on KPE towards TPE chancing upon a bunch or cars that were abit too keen to distance themselves from any traffic around them. Apparently this happened on the wee hours of 16th May morning and from what we can gather, the lead car is a R34 Nissan Skyline that zoomed past the camera car at a speed that seemed to double the legal speed limit of the KPE. Its hard to tell from the video but other than the Skyline, we could also identify a few other cars including a Suzuki Swift, a Volkswagen Golf, a Volkswagen Jetta (that might have been the same guy that was charged for organising illegal street racing), a Mitsubishi Evo 9 and a couple of Honda Civics. Interestingly, most of the comments were attacking the camera car for being slow. We wonder why. On the other hand, there will always be keyboard warriors that come out with weird and silly comments like the example below... 95563179_890011821514718_986642270115562833_n.mp4
  11. could not seem to get anything from the singapore GTR club. would like to ask for advice here. I am noob on this car but i do know there is differences between every model year. 1. i heard that a 2008 model at stage 2 can already make up all the differences between the different year model in terms of performance. so if i intend to go stage 2, is it true to say 2008 model is enough? 2. what is the pro GTR workshops locally? i want to get the car checked at a workshop before purchasing it. 3. are there any serious maintenance issues with the gearbox of the GTR? can a mechanic check if it has problems? also, if the clutch has been replaced with performance ones, will it still have those serious issues? 4. anyone happen to know which company gives the best insurance rate for this car? 5. is the GTR an LTA magnet? i previously drove an LTA magnet and really hated the constant stopping and checking. Thanks so much.
  12. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAId3vqwqvc The Nissan GTR is commonly known as the 'King of drag race' with its potent off-the-line performance. Credits to its clever all-wheel drive system, the GTR can effectively put down its 545bhp and 630Nm of torque on the drag strip. Recently, however, British publication EVO took out the GTR and pit it against Porsche's new 911 Turbo - and found otherwise. In comparison, the 991 gen Turbo has 520 horses - 25 fewer than the GTR. But it weighs 1,665kg - compared to the GTR's 1,746kg. That could have given it a slight advantage.
  13. We all know about the Nissan GT-R and its need for speed. Now the 'Godzilla' is all set to get wickedly faster with Nismo - the performance arm of Nissan - unveiling the GT-R Nismo. There have been no spy shots whatsoever, so the closest we could get are pictures of the GT-R Track Edition. The future Nismo version will be based on the 2014 GT-R and will feature a series of updates that will transform the 'Godzilla' into a real track machine, while keeping it perfectly suitable for the road. On the exterior, Nismo will work on improving the car's aerodynamics, so lower front and rear bumpers, wider wings and sill side skirts, plus a huge wing at the rear is to be expected. Inside the car, the GT-R Nismo will most likely get special suede-trimmed Nismo sports seats with red stitching, plus a redesigned steering wheel, pedals, gauges and gear knob. Under the hood, the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine delivers at least 20 horses more than the standard 550bhp. There have been rumours that the GT-R Nismo will hit 100km/h in two seconds. Wait a second. The current GT-R already does the century sprint in three. Wouldn't that mean that the GT-R Nismo will be able to outsprint a 1,200bhp Bugatti Veyron Super Sport over short distances? Well, as exciting as the GT-R Nismo is going to be, we're having a hard time accepting that it will be able to hit 100km/h in two seconds flat, at least on street tyres. What do you think?
  14. AMS/ALPHA Performance breaks the 1/4 record for fastest GT-R in the world with the Alpha Omega. Producing well over 2000bhp, the 4.0-litre big bore engine has its cylinder head CNC ported and runs its own custom turbo kit. Fully street legal according to the team, it does the quarter mile in 7.7 seconds with the help of a set of AMS 15-inch slicks. It crosses the line at a staggering 299km/h. Sadly more attempts to improve the timing failed even though the car had the potential to output more power as the weather proved too hot. Watch the video below to see the GT-R in action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsnAbNtny7M&list=UUgF0OC_3MlW2KEyhhAgIQjAMeanwhile, here are some stats of the Alpha Omega GT-R: 0-96km/h in 1.53 seconds, 0-160km/h in 2.79 seconds, 160-241km/h in 2.15 seconds and 0-300km/h in 7.56 seconds.
  15. Sorry guys ... not the car, but happened to have the following items at home and I'd much prefer to give them away (yes, for free) to someone who really loves the car and all that it stands for. I have 3 items (personally, I would prefer 3 different people to take 1 item each, unless there are no takers). the books are in excellent shape (the discoloration is the reflection of lighting) Secondly, I will pay for the postage and mail it to you by registered mail- no worries (this however, means you will need to give me your postal address. you can give me initials if you dont want to give me your name not a big deal, but please note if the post office cant accept, there's nothing i can do). also, do understand that I work from morning to evening and may not get the chance to mail out the items immediately. I will endeavor to get it done asap on a Saturday if possible. (or at least, by this month .. promise!!) (i also happen to have a CF GTR keychain .. it is brand new in the box .. *somewhere*. I will do my best to find it and I'll give it away as well). if you have GTR / skyline car models, I guess these books / booklet will go well (they can be coffee table books, but the usage is up to you of course) lastly - if this is not acceptable to the moderators/mcf .. please let me know. i am not selling anything .. just feel like sharing these items! item 1: a small 6 page hard cardboard, high quality booklet with some details of the car, inside the "booklet": item 2: picture book 1 ... about 30 to 40 pages i assume .. of pictures of the car inside book 1: book 2: slightly thinner than book 1 i think. but has a couple of similar pages. believe this is an updated copy, i think) book 2 inside:
  16. Talk about a blazingly fast car - the 1,700bhp Nissan GT-R Goliath by Switzer, which purportedly set a new top speed record in a 1.6km run for GT-Rs at the recent Moscow Unlimited 500+ racing event. According to the organisers, only two other vehicles have surpassed the 400km/h mark in a 1.6km run - a Ford GT at 430km/h and a Chevrolet Camaro at 402km/h. Switzer's heavily modified yet street legal GT-R Goliath reached a speed of 402.23 km/h in 1.6km after just 22.602 seconds. The Goliath was made for an unnamed client (likely from Russia) with Switzer stating the following about said car, "The client wanted a GTR - but not just any GTR! The car the client asked us to build had to be 'for street use', not just 'street legal'. The difference there is the difference between 'comfortable' and 'tolerable'. He made it very clear that he expected this to be a 'real car' with full amenities. What he did not want was a stripped-down drag car that was technically street legal. He also wanted the car to run a low 20-second ET at the Moscow Unlimited." Watch the world's fastest Godzilla in action below. http://dai.ly/x16wif7
  17. If you're looking for an ideal car for a drag race, we suggest that you take the 2013 Nissan GT-R into consideration. We wouldn't recommend it for nothing, it's even faster than a fighter jet - the Hawker Hunter, in this case! Well, that's true provided the jet doesn't take its wheels off the ground. When you take a look at the specification sheet of the new GT-R from the Japanese automaker, it
  18. You are familiar with Ken Block's gymkhana videos where he usually wrecks tarmac in his Subaru. This time round, Monster has another video - which is equally impressive. A 850bhp Trophy Truck with 34-inches of suspension destroys the topsoil of the Mojave Desert at 241km/h an hour. Driven by 'Ballistic' BJ Baldwin, the rear-wheel driven truck sits on an NSP-1 chassis and is powered by a large 7.5-litre Chevrolet V8 engine developing 935Nm of torque with a fuel consumption of 75.8 litres per 100 km. Filmed by Tempt Media this off-road adventure would complement any Fast and Furious series with a jaw dropping moment at one point. Ok enough talk, more action!
  19. Nissan has brought its latest GTR to grace the F1 celebration. Staged at the Ritz Carlton Singapore, the 2012 GTR look very much at home with its smaller, 370Z sibling. The latest GTR promises a breath-taking century sprint timing of just 2.8 seconds The official F1 party, opening night of Podium Lounge, held by the poolside of the Ritz Carlton Singapore on Sep 21, saw plenty of beauties and plenty of enthusiastic guests. With Nissan showcasing its ever-popular GTR in the lobby of the Lounge, Azimuth showcasing its unique watch collections and a Dom Perignon VIP bar, Podium Lounge set the scene for a high luxury time. The Nissan GT-R is an icon of Nissan
  20. [extract] Rumours about Nissan releasing a smaller sports model has been around for quite some time. Currently, the company has two sports models which are the 370Z and the GT-R (three, if you were to count the 2-door Skyline). But that might change soon as Nissan

    Nissan GTR R35

    [extract] Since its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007, the R35 GTR has captivated many, even non-JDM fans. Many have commented that it is this generation
  22. Sometime this year, there were reports of Nissan transplanting the R35 engine into its SUV model, Juke. After announcing their plans to build the Juke-R, Nissan teased us with numerous photos and videos of the vehicle in state of preparation. Many were divided when they heard about this attempt. Some just laughed it off, thinking that it would be a disaster for a high centre of gravity vehicle to have such a powerful powertrain. And some were dying to see what Nissan is capable of achieving. Regardless of what anyone think or feel, Nissan has completed the Juke-R and has released photos of it to the world. Now Nissan has completed its powerful sub-compact SUV, one with the heart and soul of the infamous

  24. Nissan has released official specs and pictures of the 2011MY (Model Year) GT-R. What's different from the previous models are some exterior tweaks to make the car a little more aerodynamic, some interior appointments (a redesigned instrument panel and seats) and what most are expecting; a power upgrade. The GT-R officially crosses the 500bhp barrier to produce 530bhp and 612Nm of torque or 630Nm in the Spec V. It also sips less fuel too, 8.5km/l and is also considered a Light Emissions Vehicle (an SU-LEV in fact) too. Imagine that. Its like eating a whole 2kg cheese cake and still keeping the weight off. Technical improvements include reprogramming for the Dual Clutch gearbox which now has a SAVE mode for normal driving, improved acceleration in R mode. RAYS have provided lighter rims too. JDM or Japanese Domestic Market GT-R can choose variants according to the depth of their already deep pockets and according to the level or outright performance or outright luxury. The variants are the Pure, Black, Premium, Spec V, the Club Track and the ultra expensive luxury yet performance filled EGOIST variant. All basically used the same 3.8liter twin turbo V6 with the 6 speed DSG type gearbox. We all know the Spec V and the Club Track variants will be hot with the boy racers and the Gran Turismo crowd, but the luxury EGOIST (pictured above) is something new. An ultra expensive bespoke GT-R, in the price realm of Ferraris and Lamborghinis, is not yet heard of. The EGOIST is basically the high performance GT-R Spec V (RAYS alloys, carbon fiber bits, titanium exhaust, extra torque etc.) with a luxury interior unlike those you would find in, say, a Bentley Continental GT. The whole cabin of the EGOIST is worked over in leather; the whole dashboard, doors, roof and whatever your hands could come into contact is trimmed in leather. In fact, Nissan claims that the interior parts are sent to Germany to be trimmed in leather (I kid you not). The seats are double stitched with a quilted pattern and you can choose 4 colors of trim for the upper part of the cabin and up to 10 for the lower part. BOSE provides a high end sound system to cater of the entertainment needs. Even the logo on the steering wheel is hand crafted using the Japanese Maki-e laquer method. This is usually reserved for expensive porcelain vases, and those ultra expensive Namiki fountain pens that looks so intricate and outright beautiful. The extra luxury and extra bits of performance parts will cost the JDM GT-R EGOIST to cost an estimated 15,000,000Yen or a whopping US$185,000. Compare this with the price for the base GT-R Pure variant and you'd know that Nissan have decided to go Ferrari or even Bentley with its prices. The base GT-R only costs a meagre 8,694,000Yen, or US$107,000. An ultra luxurious Nissan GT-R, it could be Godzilla in a Brioni suit. Go figure. -Now compare all the above interior pics with the normal GT-R Spec V interior below-
