THE SUMO POWER SKYLINE R34GTR (ICHIBAN) For Sale (1999)

THE SUMO POWER SKYLINE R34 GTR 1999(T) "ICHIBAN" U/K Registered 15/08/2000 Chassis: BNR34004970 OPEN TO SERIOUS OFFERS OWNERSHIP: This UNIQUE car was created by Andy Barnes, co owner of SUMO POWER from an original 9000 mile unmodified R34 GTR which he purchased in 2001. The car was extensively developed as a show piece for SUMO POWER ultimately becoming the fastest U/K modified R34GTR over the 1/4 mile (road tyres) over the next five years prior to sale via the GTR forum to an enthusiast who kept the car until January 2009 when it was again sold to a European gentleman for use in France. The car returned back to the U/K 2.5 years later where upon ABBEY MOTORSPORT overhauled the gearbox and stored the vehicle. I purchased the car earlier this year and instructed ABBEY to complete a full check over, wheel refurbishment and mot prior to my collection. HISTORY: Without doubt this is one of the most written about Skylines anywhere in the world and to quote Andy Barnes back in 2006.... I've lost count of the many shows and exhibitions that the car has been to all over Europe and I think I have more than 10 magazines that she has been on the front cover of in Europe, the USA and even Japan let alone the hundred's where she is photographed inside and technically featured' Just GOOGLE up SUMO POWER or watch this cars outstanding performances on YOU TUBE and see the amount of information that still exists. For the enthusiasts who may not know this car's history they can then begin to appreciate the IMPACT and LEGENDARY following that this machine had created. Tax 31/10/2013. MOT 27/03/2014. SERVICING: Information is held relating to the constant attention paid to this car by SUMO POWER as they evolved the Specification. Since March 2007 Abbey Motorsport detailed invoices are available to the most recent inspection this year. In total around £160,000 pounds has been lavished on this vehicle not including the purchase price in 2001! EXTERIOR: Finished in BAYSIDE Blue the bodywork has a complete DO-LUCK bodykit fitted including a lift up bonnet, vented front wings, side sill extensions and rear bumper. The one exception is the replacement of the front bumper for a lightweight quick release version of the standard arrangement. I have had the front spoiler / bumper and bonnet refinished to a high standard. The current appearance is very pleasing with a lovely gloss to the paintwork, few marks worth a mention and overall looking just right and ready for the next owner to enjoy. INTERIOR: This car has the black leather interior with the seats trimmed exactly as the U/K supplied vehicles, the only difference being that the front seats have cut outs enabling the fitment of race harnesses. The carpets are covered with Skyline over mats and the interior has been carefully valeted and prepared and is now looking in very well preserved condition. ENGINE: ABBEY MOTORSPORT bottom end rebuild just 4500 miles ago utilising HKS (Step2) 2.8 L internals inside an R32GTR block whilst retaining the original cylinder head modifications, camshafts etc as developed for SUMO POWER. Running 1.2mm Steel head gasket and HKS 28/35 Turbines coupled with HKS 280 duration inlet / exhaust cams produced a maximum power reading of 638 bhp @ 7600 rpm and 502 lbs ft Torque @ 6050 rpm at the hubs measured on ABBEY's HUB based DYNAPACK chassis dynamometer running Super Unleaded fuel and 1.5 bar of boost.

Using 570 BHP and cruising normally brings reasonable economy with expected response, at 620bhp this is a very serious car feeling very powerful no matter what performance level you have experienced. At the 709 bhp setting the power graph just goes vertical! I have been informed that this carís current performance level should see around 200 mph from a standing start in ONE mile! No, I have not verified this and maybe not quite the 9.68 sec @144 mph standing 1/4 mile performance (on road tyres) that this car has previously attained but sure gives one an idea of the potential. What a fantastic performance car! SUMMARY: An Internationally respected Skyline with press reports of the time stating that this was the most famous of the SUMO POWER demo vehicles. Named ĎICHIBANí (Number 1 in Japanese) this vehicle was quoted as being responsible for setting records in Europe as well as pushing the boundaries of the U/K aftermarket scene forward. Currently in Excellent condition and fully checked over by Abbey Motorsport this piece of Skyline folk lore is not to be missed. Considering the History, Condition, Specification and Performance, a guide price of 35k is sought however all OFFERS will be given consideration including part exchange. Please note the recorded mileage of 50870 cannot be verified. Part Exchange considered Credit / Debit and American Express cards accepted Please email Giles for a clearer selection of picture
