Car Spotlight>> Street R32 Gt-r: 675hp At All Four

You may remember that I came across quite a few GT-Rs during my visit to Australian car builders Mercury Motorsport. And out of all of them – ranging from R32s to R35s – this one in particular deserved a closer look.

This is a gorgeous example of a cleanly modified, road registered R32 GT-R – which just so happens to produce 675hp at four wheels.

That power comes courtesy of a Tomei Genesis crate motor that is stroked to 2.8 litres and running on E85 fuel.

The twin turbo setup has been replaced with a single Garrett T04Z. The large snail hangs off a 6Boost manifold and is regulated by a Turbosmart Progate 50 wastegate.

The interior has been kept quite simple, with only a few gauges surrounding the driver. As you can see the R32 had its transmission out when I shot this spotlight.

The GT-R seats have been retired with a pair of Recaro replacements. The R32 also has a half roll cage.

The GT-R has been resprayed in a red with pink pearl; the colour changing depending on the angle of light. Around the car are various carbon pieces, such as the rear wing…

…Front grill…

…And faux weave Ganador mirrors.

Providing some contrast to the bright bodywork are ubiquitous bronze TE37s. The brakes have also been upgraded to reign in the R32.

With nearly 700hp available at all four, this GT-R is certainly an impressive street car.

Why would a performance workshop bolt in a crate motor?

14

700 hp aint going no where with no tranny.

15

Are Speedhunters advertising for Mercury now or what? There are sooooooooooooo many other QLD workshops putting out awesome cars, how about giving some others a feature?

19

More on the purple one!

Looks Hot!

21

Hmmm I am spying a set of JBT taiwan brakes there.

Wonder if Taiwan brakes has matured enough yet to be comparable to established brands.

But I do see them more and more here in Australia.

22

Very nice! Like the pink too xD

24

"Why would a performance work shop bolt in a crate motor" .???

For the exact same reson they used a American engine pakage in their time attack r35. Cause they are a rubbish workshop...

25

Argh faux weave! This is not Max Power!

26

First the car gas a MASSIVE 675hp at all four wheels.

but at the end the car has nearly 175hp at all four wheels.

whould you please make a desicion?

675hp at the wheels = 675*4=2700hp after the transmission... that means the engine whoud make over 3250hp @ the clutch!!!

27

Thats the best engine avalaible for anyform of GTR. No bull its worth 2 times the car.

28

30k in the Tomei Genesis alone. Wowzas.

29

I love everything about that car, the R32 in my opinion is the best looking, most amasing GT-R till now, and this version looks awesom, I just hope it won't be screwed by those 675 hp her engine developes !

Hmmm.....nice car!

The transmission fitted to this is a sequential OS Giken 6-speed. Well done Mercury on another epic GTR!! It's a crate motor because another very well known RB workshop in Brisbane built the original engine with detrimental results (without naming names or going into too much detail). The frustrated owner purchased & put in the brand new Tomei crate motor himself, then took it to Mercury to finish off & fit the turbo/do fab etc. etc... Lovely car!

33

Engine wasnt fitted by the workshop, 5 minutes after buying this car which was built by another worksop the engine had issues causing number 1 piston to be destroyed unlong with the t51r etc. That is why this engine was fitted by the owner :) tuff street car so many future plans. The gearbox is out for major upgrades wait until you see it on the street soon........
