What better way for Jeff Allen, star of CNBC’s The Car Chasers and Skidmarks Show, to debut his state of the art GT-R 35 build and new exterior design then at the starting grid of the Goldrush Rally in Boston, MA surrounded by 1,000’s of people and over 40 million dollars in classic, exotic and highline rides.
Over 9 days the rally crossed the country clocking in over 3000 miles and tackled some of Americas most amazing terrain from the Tail of The Dragon at Deals Gap with 318 curves in only 11 miles and is considered Americas number one motorcycle and sports car road to ascending to 11,000 feet with the additional elements of fog and snow on Pikes Peaks, located in the Rocky Mountains to cruising through one of America’s most amazing terrain’s, the Zion National park in Springdale, Utah.
For 2016 Flat 12 Gallery did a total overhaul on their 2014 Nissan GT-R nicknamed #Pennzilla starting with her powerhouse being upped to a Flat 12 Gallery built ALPHA 9 plus package allowing her to house upwards of 900+ Horsepower under the hood.
To keep the engine at optimal performance Pennzoil Pure Plus Ultra Platinum Synthetic 0w-40 pumped through her veins.
Because we believe performance should be matched by design, Flat 12 Gallery added a Prior Design carbon composite wide body kit and front facia to give #Pennzilla an appearance to match her attitude. The car was then finished off with the newly redesigned APR Performance GTC-500 rear wing a bespoke set of translucent copper DE3C Forgeline Wheels wrapped in Toyo 888 Tires.
“I really wanted to morph performance, reliability and looks to build a car that excelled in every area without compromising anything. #Pennzilla is exactly the right balance in my book.”
Jeff Allen successfully navigated the rally from Boston to Los Angles and was also able to showcase #Pennzilla’s performance on the track. In North Carolina at zMAX Dragway, Pennzilla faced off against Porsche GT3’s, Porsche twin turbo’s and McLaren’s winning multiple runs with a top 1/4 mile time of 10.90 and the days best RT of .008.
“I played around with her tune a little bit and I was happy running a 10.9 and ending up in the top five times of the day running with Bugattis, a race prepped GTR, Porsches and Lamborghinis. The funny thing is, I haven’t even tapped her full potential yet.”
