Close-Up: Auto Gallery Yokohama – GT-R R32 Heart Attack!
A few years ago, if you were to have asked someone stateside if they knew what Auto Gallery Yokohama was, you’d probably get a blank stare. Or perhaps someone would say that it’s an automotive museum in Yokohama; which, per se, wouldn’t be a bad guess. Bottom line is that no one would know who they were or what they did. Actually, around 3 years ago, even I wouldn’t have known much about them. My first exposure to their now iconic battle-spec R32 was in an Option magazine a few years back. It was a panning shot of the Skyline blazing down the straight of Fuji Speedway. Since then, the just about every part of the car has gone through a massive amount of changes. The bottom line remains the same though; to be the fastest. And in many ways AG-Y has succeeded in doing so. The car constantly breaks records at Fuji and holds respectable times around Tsukuba. For a private company, there is no doubt it holds it’s own in a fight against the big dogs (see what I did there? – NDF!). I recently stopped by Auto Gallery Yokohama’s garage to see for myself the car that I’ve been dreaming about for years and get an up close and personal look at it’s heart.

Encounter: Omori Factory Spec R32
I got such a good response from the Omori Factory built R34, that I thought I wouldn’t waste any time in posting up their S-Tune R32 build as well. The concept of the S-Tune R32 is to remain a street car. As a result, the body style has remained relatively unchanged. To obtain maximum street-able performance that does not exceed the chassis’s strength is an important key in Japanese motor sports. Thanks to our partner site JDM Clips for snagging these shots at Nismo Festival. JDM Clips is one of the most watched channels Japanese motor sports on YouTube with loads of awesome content.
