We just simply couldn’t help ourselves after shooting Benjamin Wilkinson’s latest D1NZ creation yesterday, we had to show you a few sneak-peek images before the feature!

We’re going to keep details fairly thin, but we can tell you it’s running a 3.2-litre RB, with a huge single Borg Warner turbo. With over 500kW at the wheels it’s a serious monster, but one that Ben tells us was easy to handle straight off the trailer. 

With a TDP steering kit, you just have to check out the lock in the video below. It made it much easier to move around the tight workshop we had to deal with. Also, listen to that RB goodness ... 

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.
