El Toro R32 GT-R : Austria's Fastest and Quickest

Super Street Magazine covered the El Toro R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R this month.  With only 6 cars in Austria, it is definitely not Australia. There are quiet a few more GT-R's in Australia than Austria.

Boost is made possible with a single, albeit large, Garrett GTX42 turbo that helps generate more than 1,050 lb-ft of torque without nitrous oxide. None of that means that Keresztesi has any reservations against chemical horsepower, though; a 150hp-shot of nitrous remains on tap in the event 1,400hp is ever needed.
