After months of hard work we are thrilled to launch our Nissan GTR LM1 RS at the 2014 Cholmondley Pageant Of Power this weekend :)





Not only have we created what we think is the ultimate trackday GTR but it is also the car that will take Michael Newman to his latest blind land speed record later this summer.



We are honoured to support Mike and his charity, Speed of Sight, in this brave challenge. Anyone who is planning to attend this year’s show please call in and see the team on the Speed of Sight stand next to The Pageant Pub by the lake and start line.



Our road car demonstrator has been running in its LM1 specification since last autumn and has racked up thousands of miles of testing across Europe. The RS model will begin its track testing in the coming weeks with some of our race driver customers helping us develop the setup :D

We expect to do a full press release on both the road and track variants and some of the unique parts we have developed soon.



The RS’s final specification will be finalised after testing but in brief it has the following:

LM1 RS

1,100bhp+ (917bhp @ 1.15bar on Vpower in early testing :eek: )
4.6 litre “Red Top” engine using Litchfield Capricorn block with Niksil liners

Ant, the last dyno session we had was back in March and things have moved on a little since then :) On low boost torque was around 750lbft and peak power was 917bhp around 7,200rpm and the redline is set just over 8,000rpm. When we did some shake down runs at 1.5 bar on an airfield the acceleration was ridiculous! :D

We have some new toys being installed at the moment which will give us much more information :)
