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

Looks great. What's the torque and when is peak power produced? What's the redline?

Would love to see this, what other events are you going to?

Glad it's subtle!

Thanks Rab :) It's been very rewarding, especially seeing how excited Mike was when he got to sit in the car and fire it up for the first time.
We all take our God given senses for granted but we don't realise just how fortunate we are..... God bless you

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 :)

Great job Iain, Michael must be ecstatic.
Just out of curiosity would you be able to drive that car on a daily basis if needed?

Saw this in the flesh recently... the intercooler is HUGE! Looks absolutely insane... very nice piece of work. Good luck with your upcoming challenges.
