Nissan GT-R vs Bandit 1250

Nissan GT-R vs Lamborghini LP560 vs Porsche 911

2012 Nissan GT-R

DSPORT Magazine: 2012 Nissan GT-R

If you own a Porsche 911 Turbo, Corvette ZR1, R32/R33/R34 Skyline GT-R or just about any of the six-figure European exotics, prepare to be pissed off. Japan's reigning mass-production supercar, just got better. How much better? Let's just say that even owners of '09, '10 and '11 GT-Rs are likely to be envious of the major improvements from the minor-change 2012 Nissan GT-R. Kazutoshi Mizuno, the Chief Vehicle Engineer and Chief Vehicle Specialist for the R35 GT-R, said it would take about three years to fulfill the promise of making the R35 GT-R a worldclass supercar after the first R35s rolled off the assembly line in late 2007. With the 2012 Nissan GT-R, Mizuno-san has lived up to his promise with the 2012 Nissan GT-R.

For the special-invitation long-lead on the 2012 Nissan GT-R, Nissan outdid itself by selecting the most incredible driving routes ever for a street evaluation. Starting from the coast and blazing through the canyons of Central California we experienced a smorgasbord of road types. There was everything from wide-open mile-long straights to the edge-of-the-cliff, "ohshit- we're-going-too-fast" off-camber drop outs. Despite the significant weight of the GT-R, it negotiated any challenge pointed in its way. The additional power and improved power curve delivered more reactive throttle response. In the earlier R35 GT-Rs, the lag of the drive-by-wire controls made the vehicle respond as if the control system had overdosed on cold medicine. With the 2012 GT-R, the driver-to-vehicle connection is now completely online. Improved steering response, improved gear-selection in the AUTO mode and increased brake response were all evident on the road to the racetrack. If you miss that lag in throttle response, a simple swap to the new "SAVE" mode delivers a noticeable reduction to improve fuel efficiency. Finally, the difference in the "COMFORT" mode setting between the 2011 and 2012 GT-R was noticeable with the 2012 doing a much better job of smoothing the bumps.

Nissan Juke Custom

The coolest freak on wheels!

The Nissan Juke is now for sale in Japan, and many tuning enthusiasts will want to get their hands on the unique half sports car, half SUV from Nissan. It’s been breaking all records according to sales reports, with 5,000 already ordered. Nissan only expected to sell 1,000 units at first, but I guess this fresh new look has attracted buyers from all over. The picture above is a photoshopped image from JDMsociety of what a Juke tuning would look like if sporting Volk TE27 rims, slammed to the ground, and yellow headlights. From the factory the Nissan Juke will carry a 1.6-liter turbo engine with 4WD producing 180 horsepower.

Honda Jazz All New 2011 Facelift

Raising the bar again by a notch for sure! Can all other hot hatches catch up?

Honda All New Jazz / Fit Hybrid Variant 2011
Picture from:

The most obvious difference at a glance is a brand new exteriorcolour -- Brilliant Orange Metallic -- which joins the other choices of Polished Metal Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, and Brilliant White Pearl.

"Honda enthusiasts can expect the new Jazz to deliver even more value with new exciting styling, enhanced safety and practicality; and with all these enhancement and improvement, we are delighted to maintain Jazz price at RM109,800 (on the road with insurance), so as to offer Honda customers the satisfaction of owning a new, value-for-money and yet premium 5-door hatchback Jazz," said Yoichiro Ueno, Managing Director & CEO of Honda Malaysia.

Since the Jazz model line was added to the Honda range in 2001, more than 3.7 million units have been sold globally. Its popularity and strong sales in the Asia and Oceania region opened up the 5-door hatchback segment in this regional market, and the Jazz has been recognised as a pioneer and trendsetter in its own category.

The Jazz (which is also known as Fit in some countries) has also won many awards for its practical and smart design. Two generations of the Jazz have won the Car of the Year title in Japan (for 2001/2002 and 2007/2008). More significantly, the Jazz was the first Honda to become the best-selling model in Japan when it outsold the Toyota Corolla in 2002. It was an major achievement because the Corolla has been the best-selling model every year for 33 years.

For the latest version, which is imported from Honda Thailand's factory, a more sporty and bold look comes from new front and rear bumpers as well as a new mesh grille. Additionally, the headlights now have silver and matte coloured highlights and are complemented with a set of all front fog lights and rear combination lights.

The cabin, with one of the best-in-class volumes, is also refreshed to complement the new sporty exterior. There's a new colour scheme (a combination of blue and black coloured materials for the seats and door panels) and amber illumination for the speedometer and audio displays.

The improvements for certain utility features have been based on customers' feedback. These include a revised locking knob for the inner door handle with a new orange coloured highlight, new opening sound indicator to the fuel lid, and an orange marker on the air conditioning control, all of which improves recognition, operability and usability of these features.

Honda Malaysia makes no mention of technical changes under the bonnet and the model continues with the proven 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine which produces 120 ps, the highest output in its class. Though certified to higher Euro-4 exhaust emissions standard, the engine is fully compatible with the Malaysian Euro-2M RON95 petrol. A 5-speed automatic transmission is standard.

Jazz drivers will enjoy higher safety levels with Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) now fitted to the model. VSA comes into action when the car fails to maintain the chosen line through a corner, preventing it from spinning out of control. While it is not intended to allow a driver to take corners faster than what is safe, VSA can prove to be a valuable safety feature that can reduce accidents.

The Jazz utilizes Honda's G-CON Technology for its body structure which designed to spread out and disperse collision impact so as to limit cabin intrusion and effectively minimise injuries to the driver and passengers. Standard with the Jazz are dual SRS airbags, ABS and new safety features including headrests for all three rear passenger seats. The centre occupant also gets a full 3-point safety belt for better restraint. Honda's designers also think of other road-users and the car's exterior design has certain features to minimize injuries to them in a collision.

Tuned Bugatti Veyron - The Mansory Vincero, the world's only tuned Bugat...

The Mansory Vincero is the world's only tuned Bugatti Veyron and is perhaps the most wanton display of pure excess seen since Roman times. It comes with 1109bhp, new wheels, a new exhaust and new panels, as well as the restyled front end and the interior that I could live without. These small changes cost an eye-popping €700,000, too. So this is a €1.8 million car, which wasn't mine, and they gave me the keys. Mad...

The action stuff will have to wait for part two, first enjoy the car in all its glory and just listen to that exhaust. The camera could barely cope with the noise, sadly...

Tampa Street Racing in Ford GT

author's note:
Street Racing footage from down in Tampa FL, On my way back to the hotel a supra talked me into a pull, which obviously didn't last very long, but did make for a long night. Wasn't expecting to be arrested, which is why I stopped. The Ford GT did not get towed, they allowed my passenger to drive it away. After 4 hours inside Pinellas County prision I posted my own bail and left sorta annoyed and exhausted. Having been pulled over and released for much worse I was surprised at the police reaction, but hell in their book even if I beat the ticket they know they ruined my night. Tampa cops 1 - Super Speeders 0. For more videos check out or search for "super speeders" on
