M7 Shakes Down with No One Better - Intel

The black GT-R with the R600 M7 tuning kit helps the VR38DETT push out 613hp and 495lb-ft, and at the hands of NOB, drove very well on its maiden voyage.

M7 has been making a lot of noise lately, and this time, they brought in one of Japan’s star drivers to help them make a little more. Nobuteru “NOB” Taniguchi was brought over to the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia to help dial in the M7 R600-tuned ’08 Nissan GT-R. Sepang International Circuit is a F1 circuit that is known for its sweeping corners, wide straights and an unusual layout that has a very long back-straight that’s separated from the pit straight by one very tight hairpin.

The black GT-R with the R600 M7 tuning kit helps the VR38DETT push out 613hp and 495lb-ft, and at the hands of NOB, drove very well on its maiden voyage. “For a street car, the R600 GT-R performed well on a professional circuit,” he said. “There’s a nice increase in power response, and handling of the M7 Super Dampers are very good. Overall, the R600 is very well suited for street use.” It’s without question that the M7 R600 upgrade maintains the GT-R’s ability to drive on the street but still gives it a well-deserved punch when it’s time to hit the track. — Gwen Leong

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
