Saudi Arabian team brings this custom coachbuilt GT-R to the Gumball 3000 to join its Tumbler replica.
There’s never a shortage of enticing supercars at the Gumball 3000, but this year’s rally is drawing an unprecedented array of custom creations. We’ve already reported on Jon Olsson’s Rebellion R2K and Team Galag’s custom Tumbler replica, but now that same Saudi team has revealed another custom car it has brought to the Gumball this year. The TG1 is based on a Nissan GT-R but rebodied and retuned to make it even more menacing. Like the Tumbler, the TG1’s bodywork was constructed by Parker Brothers Concepts.
The custom carbon-fiber bodywork has helped shed over 200 lbs, and was reportedly even more challenging to construct than the aforementioned Tumbler. Meanwhile its engine upgraded by Litchfield Motors to 750 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. As a result, the TG1 is said to reach 62 mph from a standstill in less than 2.7 seconds and top out at over 211 mph – which should come in handy when the rally reaches Germany’s few remaining de-restricted stretches of Autobahn.
