Team Donut King is in the process of preparing a second Nissan R35 GT-R for race duties. GTRBlog.com owner and operator Kris was recently on hand to capture the progress. Team Donut King campaigned its first GT-R in this year's Targa Tasmania; the newest addition to the team is expected to hit the track early next year.

The same bright pink hue will adorn the shell of the new car while various modifications will prepare the car for production class racing. A full roll-cage is the most obvious alteration, aside from that paint scheme, but the GT-R will also receive upgraded brake rotors and pads, Toyo Proxes R888 20? tyres, a new exhaust system, Sparco racing seats and retuned ECU.

As you can see, the interior has been completely stripped and apart from the dash, not much of it will go back in when the car is completed. This should make for some serious weight savings when you consider that the factory R35 is quite plush inside and comfort generally equals weight.

Owner/driver Peter Leemhuis is said to be enjoying the car so far - understandable when you consider his admission that the R35 is quicker than his Ferrari. Leemhuis, who has contested numerous Targa Tasmania and Tarmac Challenge events driving an R32 GT-R, needed just one stint behind the wheel of the R35 before signing off on the order.

Despite the extensive work already completed, there's still plenty to be done and we'll bring you more information on the car's progress as it comes to light. We've got plenty more images in the gallery so be sure to take a closer look.
