Thrashing the iconic 1,000PS Calsonic GT‑R

The word ‘legendary’ is overused in the car world, but it’s fair to say that the Calsonic Nissan Skyline GT-R, that won the Spa 24 Hours and three Australian Group A championships, is a modern legend. It’s the car that earned the GT-R the ‘Godzilla’ nickname. Arguably, it’s the 250 GTO of the PlayStation generation, and Ric Wood’s inch-perfect recreation was certainly the dark horse of the SpeedWeek Shootout presented by Mastercard. We spoke with him about the new challenge of building this wonderful car, and putting it to work at SpeedWeek.
