While we at Motoroids have compiled a number of crazy stories and been through a few of them as well, this is probably one of the craziest. One courageous (to say the least) man successfully reached the base camp of Mount Everest by driving his Nissan GT-R sports car all the way from Singapore.
Kah Chuan Hoong, an owner of the first generation GT-R, made it to the Everest Base Camp (EBC) located 5,380 metres above sea level in his moderately modified GT-R. Modifications to the model include a lift kit, a customised front bumper and some tuning for the engine so that the high altitude doesn’t pose to be a problem for the 3.8-litre V6 petrol motor.
It is also said that Hoong’s GT-R is the first super-car ever to make it to the EBC. He is now on his way back home to Singapore, though this time he will take a different route, going though the regions of China, Thailand and Malaysia. Even as Hoong is making his way home in the GT-R, Godzilla is also making its way to India. The 2017 Nissan GT-R will be launched in India on 2nd December 2016. Stay tuned for updates live from the launch event.
