Super car culture has been growing in India. We now have several supercar owners groups and they take out their priced possession almost every weekend. Several videos and images of such cars are also available online. Even though, modifying car or bike is illegal in India, we still have decent number of cars with performance upgrades in the country. Some celebrities also have great taste in cars and one such popular celebrity is Sachin Tendulkar. He is a car nut and we have featured some of the cars that he has in his garage in the past. Here we have a video where a vlogger gets a ride in a Nissan GT-R that was once owned by Sachin Tendulkar.
The video has been uploaded by Horsepower Cartel on his YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger shows a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS that had joined them on their usual Sunday drive. They had several cars including a modified Maruti 800 wih roll cage and several other modifications. video shows couple of Ford Mustangs, Skoda Octavia vRS and many other cars. Most of the cars in this group had received some sort of performance upgrade which makes it a lot more louder than stock version.
After the Sunday morning drive, the vlogger went back to his friend where he was waiting with his Nissan GT-R. It looks like, it had rained and all the roads were wet. The Nissan GT-R seen here in the video is quite special. The car was once owned by none other than the God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar. He is known to have a large collection of BMW cars including an i8. He had bought this Nissan GT-R after he sold his Ferrari 360 Modena to a Surat based businessman.
The Nissan GT-R seen here is the Egoist version, which is actually different from regular one. The Egoist is a luxury version and it comes with plusher looking interiors that are made on request. Video does show how the interiors on Egoist version look like. The current owner of this GT-R is actually an automotive enthusiasts and he has made some cosmetic changes to the car to give it a bit more sporty look. The vlogger asks the owner who is his friend about the power figures but, he does not reveal it. It is quite possible that the current owner might have done some performance upgrades as well.
Anyway, the car looks different from what it used to look when it was with Sachin Tendulkar. Vlogger and his friend then go out for a spin and the quick acceleration, loud exhaust gave vlogger and wide smile on his face. It was performing quite well even on wet surfaces. There are only limited number of Nissan GT-Rs in the country. It is powered by a 3.8 litre V6, twin-turbo engine that generates a maximum of 562 Bhp and 637 Nm of peak torque in stock form. It is mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox and it can do 0-100 kmph sprint in just under 3 seconds.
