Down on the Street: A diplomatically driven Nissan Sunny GTi-R

I thought a Nissan Sunny GTi-R registered as a van was already outrageous, but one driven by a diplomat is even more bizarre! But like every new Guinness world record: it will be broken. So yeah, a GTi-R on diplomatic license plates has become the new norm! I have to admit that, as a big exception, I didn’t spot this car myself.

Down on the Street: Nissan Sunny GTi-R N14

I actually returned to the “scene of the crime” to take photos of a Nissan Silvia S14 I spotted a half year earlier but I lacked to bring a camera back then. So I was quite surprised to find this GTi-R parked on the same spot!

I actually spotted a white Sunny GTi-R before on the Wangan Warriors 10 meeting but it is not the same car. So I was lucky to spot a second one of these great little cars!

Yes it is a genuine GTi-R: Continue reading
