R35 GT-R enthusiasts take note! The car you see here could shortly be the very first road registered R35 GT-R on Australian roads. Spotted earlier this year at a Sydney Shell Service Station by an eagle eyed SkylinesAustralia forum member, this car is currently going through the requisite compliance testing, that should see it able to be registered for road use in Australia! I didn't think it was possible either…but it is.

TMR will be keeping a close eye on the progress with this car and we will introduce you to its likeable owner, BIG Carl a 59 year old self-confessed petrolhead, who delights in outdriving the young guys and has a penchant for seriously (and I mean SERIOUSLY) powerful late model Japanese performance cars.

BIG Carl’s current ride is a heavily modified twin-turbo V35 350GT Skyline, with a very healthy 500 rear-wheel kilowatts – we’ll bring you more on that later this week.

If you are an R35 GT-R enthusiast, or in the market for a brand new fully complied R35 GT-R then stay tuned, all will be revealed in the not too distant future.
