Hi All,

Maybe some of you might find these videos interesting, revealing or just nice to have in your YouTube Collections:

PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno

Q1) For such a high performance machine, the GT-R is a big car and heavy one. Tell us why that is?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 1

Q2) So what is the best way to reduce weight from the R35 to make it perform better?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 2

Q3) In your previous answer, you seemed to be telling us the parameters of 1700kgs weight and 485hp were set from the beginning of the project, is that correct?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 3

Q4) Why did you opt for a V6 engine, instead of an engine with more cylinders?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 4

Q5) What about the transaxle some competitors have seven or eight speeds, so why does the GT-R have only six?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 5

Q6) The R34 had the HICAS rear wheel steering system. Why didnt that make it onto the latest GT-R?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 6

Q7) Is the increasing use of electronic control systems in performance cars a welcome trend, or does it reduce the enjoyment for the driver?

Q8) When you develop a car from scratch, there have to be compromises. What was the biggest compromise that affected the development of the GT-R?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 8

Q9) Can diesels ever be a good thing in motorsports, and can electric road cars ever be fun to drive?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 9

Q10) What are your thoughts about the need to reduce the environmental impact of motoring and motorsport?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 10

Q11) There have been lots of rumours about future GT-R developments, including the Spec M version with more comfort. What can you tell us about that?
YouTube - PistonHeads Interviews Kazutoshi Mizuno - Question 11

Q12) We know about your personal commitment and passion for the GT-R, but where does this passion come from. Were you inspired by cars as a boy, and which cars inspire you now?

Excellent, thanks for this!

I second it for a sticky.

Would be nice to stick it ... lots of info for potential buyers, and people who like to know why the car is as it is ....

:thumbsup:


Just got mine back, it was in the shop for optimization (after 2 weeks of ownership, 3600Km :clap:)
Good job by our HPC ... luckily because there is only one in Belgium!
