highway to drift track, this high powered import is always ready
to light up its rear tyres! Tonight, vandalising the mother
city. By Jason Sasman. Photography by Tauriq Abrahams.
lights fly past us as we reach triple digit numbers on
the speed ometer. The howl of the boosted strait six letting
all know that she still has a lot more in reserve, ready
to be unleashed with only the slightest dab of the accelerator.
The broken lines on the highway have now become one solid
line, we are moving at the speed of light. The throaty
burble of the custom 76mm exhaust echo’s in the
chilled city air. This is how you attack the Wangan at
night, in a fully tricked out R33 Skyline.
Wangan is the Japanese term for “Bayshore highway”;
it’s a popular expression amongst the Asian streetracers
as it has become the proving ground or benchmark for any
high-powered wannabe. If you reach or exceed 200mph, your
worthy of becoming a Wangan Knight, an elite club made
up only of the best. Similar to games and movies popularized
around the world such as ‘Midnight Club’ and
‘Wangan midnight’. This is exactly the scenario
that we were after in this awesome and rare Skyline GTS-t.
