Top Gear America Nissan Skyline GT-R : Behind the Scenes

We filmed partially at Hoonigan Donut Garage, just down the street in Long Beach. 

We had a great time shooting for Top Gear America with a few R32 GT-R's. Those with a keen eye might have noticed two gunmetal R32 used in many of the scenes, and a NISMO R32 used for the Stig lap.

Can you spot the differences in the two cars?

Red, Blue, and White. Can't believe we got the order wrong. 

So how did it do?  Yes, the Sienna was actually faster.  The car we used for the shoot was a stock NISMO R32 GT-R. Full stock exhaust. On NISMO 18 x 9.5 wheels, with 265/35/18 Yokohama AD08 tires.  If you watch the video you can see how much it rolls on stock suspension.
