Remember the review by The Smoking Tire about my GTO? Well, the only reason that was possible was because Faizal Ramzan invited me to the video shoot of his Nissan Skyline GT-R previously featured in NZ Performance Car. The Smoking Tire really took their time getting this video out, but it is definitely worth the wait — check it out!

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
