Date with a Japanese Beauty ~ one of the reasons i hauled my ass out of bed on a rainy Saturday morning just to go to work office. Well, my company had its inaugural Family Day *can't remember last time we had one, before this* held yesterday & in conjunction with the autoshow event, this babe was scheduled to make a guest appearance. *Of course, the other reason to go being the lucky draw grand prize of RM1,000. Went home empty handed though.. -_- *
She's none other than the legendary Godzilla from the Land of the Rising Sun ~ Skyline R35 GTR. Likely the 1st of its kind here in Kuching. Okay, she may not be as sleek, or femininely curvaceous as one might expect, but there's that unmistakable aura about her, that the likes of the Prancing Horse or Charging Bull would exude. Downright menacing in sheer presence, meeting her in flesh for the 1st time just makes the hair on the back of my neck stands; & she's not even fired up yet. Boasting a 3.8L V6 twin turbo behemoth of a power plant that churns out 480hp of tarmac ripping fun, it takes you from 0 to 100 in a neck-snapping quick 3.5 seconds, & plus all that jet fighter cutting edge technology crammed into its design & build ~ she's been whipping asses of a fair share of ultra exotic supercars (that cost many, many times more) around the infamous Nurburgring Track ~ the ultimate proving ground for the supercars of today. Internationally acclaimed as the best performance car, $$ pound for $$ pound; means that it gives the best bang for $$ buck. Cost of ownership? Just little below RM730,000 ~ brand new, on-the-road, & without insurance. I guess i won't be seeing her much on the road...

Braving the rain, here are some more shots of her using my soon-to-be sidelined W810i + plus photoshopped, of course.
