HyperRev magazine
------------------------------------------------------------------------
This series mag tries to be the definitive work on each of many modern Japanese cars, and generally costs 2,000 JPY per issue. I seem to recall they covered the 34 GTR in possibly 2 distinct issues, one issue devoted to the 32, 33 and 34 together, and the other exclusively to the 34. Please correct me if I am mistaken. :p

A little bird tells me that a further issue of HyperRev on the GTR is to come out in due course. So there are three whats here! ...What??? :confused:

What puzzles me is what further material they could have collected for what is surely no light undertaking. :D Surely not the GTR Proto yet? Any ideas out there? :rolleyes:

(PS Apologies due. I posted this here because earlier, after running a search for mag-related threads, I pushed the post button post and then discovered it was buried away in the Cars for Sale section! Grrrr........)

Hmmm... well. with that little lot it doesn't surprise me that they've got more material for a further issue! Thanks. Still wonder what's going to be in it, though... ;)

Since Vol. 100 only came out last year, I would be surprised that another GT-R version would be coming out this year. From memory, the HyperRev series is only up to Vol. 106 at the moment (for the Toyota Vitz or something similar). :confused:

Just bought a red 1.3L Toyota Vitz R today! (Mainly for the wife & family)

2001, 35,000 km. Black inside, with smoky windows, it's got remote starting, a bling stereo, a non-factory exhaust pipe, AVS wheels, and a little front spoiler lip! Should be able to carry my armour & matchlocks for blackpowder displays OK. :D

's funny. I looked at an A160 Mercedes, a 4-seater Smart, an RX8, an Aristo, and then on impulse went for the "Yaris"... nuts. :rolleyes:

PS The bird was not so little... :D

Tried to find their homepage, but not very successfully. Yes, I'll be picking up a copy of the Vitz issue, maybe No 108 methinks. And yes, I remember seeing that little beauty, Markyboy... and now I'm feeling jealous!!! :(

Yes, thanks for that, DCD. I did see that page and searched everywhere through it, but there's no indication of an actual Hyper Rev homepage with discussions on future issues, etc. :(

The piccie of the Vitz edition looks nice, so I'll be off down to the local bookseller this evening to pick one up, hehehe :cool:

Funny you should mention that, Thrust. My wife is currently looking at byuing a Vitz as well. It must be the season! :D Its just a pity that she didn't agree with my idea of getting the turbo charged TRD model. :rolleyes:

Yes, the 1.5 special TRD RS turbo is v.nice. Modellista made the first turbo RS it seems, looking at the mag, and there are also various bolt-on turbo options.

I just bought this thing on an impulse and don't really know what I've got yet. I'll find out in April when I'm back from the UK. The only new thing I've discovered since yesterday is it's lowered with aftermarket dampers & springs. Dunno why I fell for it, really, except it was a genuine one lady owner from new, and she'd invested in all sorts of nice goodies, and maybe it was the AVS 7s which tipped the balance. Me love AVS bigtime.... :D

Oh, and the mag is excellent, by the way. :)

Nice to see this Vitz pop up again. We imported it in 2004. You bought it from a lady in Sussex, right? Now it's in Scotland! . Cool! :D :D

Wow! :D That's a nice find, Bean! Together, no less! Came out much sooner than I expected, though. :cool:

Just in Seoul on the way back to jolly Nippon so I'll have me a copy of that, methinks...:p
