    On Sunday 23rd September 2012 Richard Marshall together with Team Milltek went on to become the Champion for the UK Time attack Series in Club Class.

    The GT-R was powered by a Severn Valley Motorsport Spec’d and Built Engine !

    The Car has performed all year and has been a testament to the quality of parts used and the way that everything has been matched to work in perfect harmony. Considering that the competition mainly consisted of cars that were over 300kgs lighter than the GT-R.

    Richard Marshall Intro:

    It’s no secret that Nissan’s R35 GT-R is a huge favorite when it comes to tuning platforms. Just like many iconic Japa­nese sports cars, and specifically Nissan’s own R34 and forerunners, the current Godzilla took the world by surprise when it dropped the venerable RB26 for a com­pletely new twin-turbocharged V6. The massive performance numbers were an immediate hit, but weight issues and the Origami styling were not to everybody’s liking, though the complex electronics and advanced AWD system made mincemeat of most other supercars in the twisties, to the point where you could be fooled into thinking your physics teacher actually taught you Greek. Laughing in the face of physics, that’s what this car is all about.

    owned by Richard Marshall, let’s get a bit of the background straight. The 50 year-old from Cornwall has been into cars since his late teens, modifying his Ford Mexico and RS200 to make them go faster and handle better. He’s been through a couple of Fords, but it was only when he left Cornwall in 1985 to join an Audi dealer in Bracknell, the desire for a fast road car started to blossom.

    After leaving Bracknell and heading to Nottingham, Richard was faced with a complete work change that forced him to get away from the motor trade, and in the end started his own business. Having two children and a few family cars later, he bought an Audi RS4, and with a small amount of money behind him, decided that a family estate should be able to be used on track and top 200mph. However, in reality it never did. After many attempts to make the car faster over 10 long years, engine re-builds and re-mapping, Richard decided it needed replacing.

    So what do you replace a 550hp five-door estate with? The only car on the horizon was the GT-R R35, which Richard had heard rumours about, but it was near impossible to get any information out of Nissan. In fact, when he tried to put his name down for one, the local dealer didn’t know what it was, and even when they got a small amount of detail, they would only put his name on a list and not take a deposit.

    When the GT-R news broke, Richard had to move his name from the local dealer­ship to Middlehurst’s as they were able to supply the car for him. And he got his first GT-R in April 2009, in red. Follow­ing a 3000 mile tour of back road France with some like-minded guys in Ferraris and Maseratis, Richard had a feeling that, while the car was fast and hugely capable, the GT-R was doing most of the driving work for him.

    Back in England, Richard sold the R35 when someone offered him a near irresistible­ price for the new Jap supercar. As they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and our man started to miss the GT-R almost immediately after he sold it off. Soon enough, the conclusion was reached that the GT-R would be a better driver’s car with more power, and in came another, silver example that would be at the receiving end of extensive mods.

    Richard Ran his GT-R for a while and it ran some milder states of Tune, In Late 2011 he took the car to a Time Attack event and there the bug developed ….

    After several conversations with tuners Severn Valley Motorsport was chosen to complete the engine work – a complete rebuild. Everything that was previously put on and around the engine was stripped off and if possible sold to raise more money for the build. The list below shows the extent of the engine, suspension and interior build:-

    The car has also been given a new colour – bright lime green – and as with the new colour the car has totally been transformed from a very fast super car into a monster with over 850 bhp on tap running 99 Ron pump fuel and yet another 100 bhp running on Bio-Ethanol fuel.

    From a standing start the car will hit 60 mph in 2.7 sec and 100 mph comes up in the 5 seconds and 200 mph in under 18 seconds whilst running 2.2 bar of boost which has been expertly mapped by Ben Linney with the help of Cobb in the USA.
