Hilarious: Smokey Nagata’s way of emission testing

Some months ago I posted Smokey Nagata’s Skyline V34 GT-R in the hilarious section, this time another hilarious video by Smokey Nagata:

As you can see: he is doing his emissions test of his catalytic converter by putting Eiji “Tarzan” Yamada inside the Top Secret Supra and comparing results of before and after.

Culture shock: Smokey Nagata and his Nissan Skyline V35 GTR

Some people may know Kazuhiko “Smokey” Nagata from his wild stunt at the British M1 almost a decade ago. Well, his looks are still the same: he still looks like he just walked out of 1991. 😀

I found this video about him and his Top Secret GT-R R35 Skyline V35, I guess fall 2008, and the contrast between him (1991) and the GT-R (2008) Skyline V35 (2005) is enormous! Have a look at almost 15 years of culture shock:

I really think he does amazing things! It is a 720hp V8 powered GT-R. He tuned a VQ30DETT to 720hp, while during the Super GT series (JGTC) that engine only had an output of 480hp, so that’s an enormous increase in power!

According to Smokey Nagata the car itself does 330km/h, but when he takes it out on the German autobahn it even gets as fast as 343km/h! That’s insane! Ah well, he may look a bit dull but atleast his life isn’t. 😉

Edit: I found an English translation of the last part of the video:
