  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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. If you're looking to own a piece of national history, check out the full listing here! *This is not a sponsored ad. This is not an ad, period.
  4. Last night an online auctioneer sold off a Nissan GTR. But many sharp-eyed bidders noticed that the "winner" of this bid seemed to have the same GTR since 2018. Coincidental? Source: All Singapore Stuff Facebook Fan Page. And some of the notable comments on their facebook fan page. Anyone watched the auction at facebook?
  5. http://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.ph...084&DL=2318 418k for a used GT-R.. can anyone explain why 200k difference?
  6. 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?
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. 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

  12. [extract] The Nissan GT-R is one of the most exciting cars that I have ever encountered. When viewing it from afar one does not fathom how much technology as well as engineering effort has gone into one of these beasts. I personally had a chance to look at one being stripped due to transmission failure and it astounds me to see how things were packaged inside of the GT-R. Anyway, what
  13. [extract] Even though the 2012 Nissan GT-R facelift has only recently been released, development on the 2013 model year Nissan GT-R is said to be underway. Power from the engine will apparently be boosted up by another 40bhp, resulting in around 570bhp
  14. 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-

  16. Porsche have accused Nissan of providing false information that the GTR could go round the challenging Nurburgring in 7 minutes 29 seconds. They were so sure that the GTR could not do it that Porsche actually bought one! I know some might have heard about this before, but I managed to find a video which may prove Porsche's claim true that the GTR didn't actually complete a lap as fast as Nissan claimed it did, or that their test drivers suck. The main reason why Porsche was so adamant that the GTR could not have possibly achieved that time is because the GTR was just 1 second off the time of the Porsche Carrera GT which is close to hypercar status. The GTR in the hands of the Porsche test driver did a time of 7 minutes 54 seconds. Moreover, the Porsche 911 Turbo and the GT2 were also faster than the GT-R: the turbo managed to achieve a time of 7 minutes and 38 seconds while the GT2 finished the lap in 7 minutes and 34 seconds. And the Germans could never accept being defeated on home soil. So here it is. The epic battle of the stopwatch begins the moment you click 'Play'. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p45OuyWhUfE&feature=player_embedded
