With the F1 circus coming to Malaysia for its annual visit (the Formula 1 Malaysian GP happens this weekend), there are sure to be plenty of motorsports themed events in KL this week. Although Nissan isn’t in F1, it’s joining in the fun with a Nissan GT-R Heritage Exhibition at Edaran Tan Chong Motor’s Jalan Ipoh headquarters.

The display, which will be open to all till October 2, celebrates Nissan’s performance icon, the GT-R. Present are the R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R R33, R34 Skyline GT-R and of course, the R35 GT-R. The most interesting of the lot is the R34, which is one of 250 limited edition units of the “M Spec Nur” variant.

Nur is of course for Nurburgring, and the M Spec Nur was the farewell edition of the R34 GT-R, along with the V spec II Nur. It has an improved RB26DETT based on the N1 race engine, with larger turbos and increased boost pressure. Nur cars also shipped with a 300 km/h speedo.

In conjunction with the GT-R display, ETCM also carried out a prize giving ceremony for the central region winner of its Passion to Win campaign. Kavitha A/P Rajamanikam bought a Nissan Almera and will be going on an all-expense paid trip to Thailand to watch the 2016 Super GT Round 7 race at Buriram. Nismo is gunning for a third consecutive Super GT series title.

Others on the Thai trip are Jefery Fernandez A/L Freddy, who bought an Almera; Rossuriana Binti Busu, who bought an X-Trail; new Serena S-Hybrid owner Wong Yun Kang; and Chua Yew Kwang, who bought the X-Trail 2.5L. Ong E-Laine won a Facebook caption contest and will be heading to the Land of Smiles as well.

“The great response we received in our August campaign has motivated us to extend and further uplift the Nissan motorsports spirit with the GT-R Heritage Exhibition. Keeping our customers happy is a priority for us, and with the Super GT Thailand trip, we hope to delight our lucky owners with a thrilling experience,” said Datuk Dr Ang Bon Beng, executive director of ETCM.

No R32 there, though. That much-loved Skyline is hard to come by these days, and we would have fell off our seats if they had the original Hakosuka or the super rare C110-gen GT-R from the early 70s.
