Even though it only had 590bhp but the car was lightened down to around 1100kg...
That Evo was actually 5-7sec faster depending on the track, than the tuned GTR.
Yeh. I had a 400 horse evo (450lb) and that felt quicker from inside than my 500 hp r33, but I don't think it was.a 590 1100kg evo would feel quick!!

Oh nice car btw. There is one thing that jumps out and I'm not critisising, just the rear lights and skyline panel look a different colour.

I haven't noticed such an effect in real life, and all the parts were painted at the same time with the same color.

But like Supra and Rx-7 OEM rear bumpers (the most common examples), you can always see a difference between the plastic and metal parts in some lighting.
For example neither one of these cars had been repainted at any time:

I went and abused the old classic again and participated in a local Street Race.



Finished 3rd which is better than I expected, but that's OK as the victory went to my friend with the modified GTR





Here's some footage of the pretty fast GTR:
