What Can I Expect

Introducing the Sumo Power Nissan - a 1200bhp Nissan GT-R! This very special experience is ready for blast off at Bovingdon Circuit in Hertfordshire. If you like your fast exotic cars, this experience takes that to a whole new level.

The standard Nissan R35 GT-R is an awesome car. It goes fast. It looks fantastic and it handles really well. This Sumo Power GT-R is simply out of this world. Check your wing mirrors £1-millon Bugattis, there's another 1200bhp motor coming right up behind you - and capable of overtaking.

So how do you get up to 1200bhp out of a Nissan R35 GT-R? Well, you pop in and see Sumo Power, the high-performance tuning specialists. Give them a bag of money and they'll transform your standard ninja Nissan into a total beast. A bit of a capacity upgrade, a few extension and actuator bits, some mods to the gearbox and a whole load of workshop hours and you've got yourself a serious powerhouse, thanks to the likes of HKS (the Japanese tuning and engine specialist) and Dodson (the world's leading after-market double clutch manufacturer).

Indeed, this very Nissan R35 GT-R that you will be driving is Sumo Power's ex-demo car, used for impressing clients with what they can do. So, yes, this car is sublime. It's a superlative example of what professional tuning can achieve and is in pristine showroom condition.

And yes, in case you were wondering, it does indeed sound as awesome as you'd hope. In fact, before you actually drive the thing it's a good idea to watch the GT-R go around the track, so you can get the full benefit of the symphony of sound straight from the land of the rising sun.

Enough eulogising already, it's time to drive this car. As you slide into the bucket driver seat, marvel at those digital displays, do your 'mirror, signal, manoeuvre' thing (safety is paramount after all!) and then let the horsepower out to play. When you're driving in standard mode you'll have an impressive 700bhp under your foot. Pay for the high boost upgrade and you'll max out your driving experience with the full 1200bhp at your disposal!
