That three-lettered, monosyllabic word is about the only one we can conjure when trying to describe what this video makes us feel. It has four of the most instantly titillating features ever to grace our screens: a tuned, 1,000+ HP R35 Nissan GT-R, a Group A R32 race car, a tight mountain pass, and jaw-droppingly gorgeous cinematography.
The clip comes courtesy of Japan’s Motorhead Magazine, who got together an HKS-tuned Nissan GT-R GT1000 and an old R32-generation Group A racer to celebrate Japanese cars, with Japanese tuning.
Driving both Nissan GT-Rs is Japanese racing and drifting driver Nobuteru Taniguchi, and watching him tear through the curves of Gunsai at full-tilt, it’s hard to believe that the video hasn’t been doctored to make it seem like he’s going faster.
But of course it hasn’t, and complimenting the fantastic, heart-pumping visuals is a Kavinsky-esque synth-pop score (think: Drive, 2011), and the overwhelming musicality of the two GT-Rs’ respective engines. The incredible note from the R35’s wastegate alone is almost enough to send shivers down one’s spine.
Of course, we could wax poetic about this clip all day. But really, you should just watch it:
