I was cruising Eric Hsu’s site and saw this pic. I jacked it, but I know Eric jacked it from somewhere too. In fact, if I know him as well as I think I know him, he would be proud I jacked it from him. Anyhow, if I was racing in Super GT, I’d be crapping my pants right now. Currently ranked #1 in Super GT is the Autobacs Racing Team Aguri and their Arta NSX. I have a lot of respect for the NSX.. but like I said before, all hail the new King.
I can picture it now.. its like when my ex-coworker used to go on and on about his Corvette (pre-Z06, whatever that was) and how he could smoke anything and this and that.. and then he turned to me and said, while chuckling, “bet ain’t no import can do that, yuk yuk yuk..”.. so I looked up at the sky for a minute.. scratched my wanna-be goatee and said.. “well, actually.. my friend’s 94 Toyota Supra makes 750 horsepower to the wheels on race gas.. but if you ever catch him on the street, he’s probably not running race gas, in which case he’s probably only making like 650 horsepower to the wheels because he had to turn down the boost”.. it was pure joy to watch his stupid grinning face disintegrate into a look of pure sourness and disgust..
Yeah, that’s what I think of when I imagine the look on the Arta NSX driver’s face when the Nissan Skyline R35 GT-R Racecar rolls out of the semi trailer and fires up the Nissan IRL V8.. I’d pay to be there to photograph it.
If you have time, check out Eric’s other post about wack stuff he saw at SEMA.. if you’ve never met Eric, trust me when I say he writes EXACTLY how he speaks in real life.. typos n’ all 😆
