Hello everyone watching this movie, I am Asaki Moriwaki, young and lively 21years old. Assistant today is Asaki Moriwaki good at dance. Don't stare at me like that. Does this beat out 911? From Germany 3rd car is PORSCHE CAYMAN S. There is no tuner because this car is not modified NORMAL, just like myself. Narmal ? Prompter board is wrong !! Kei-chan special. Not Cayman. Porsche Kei-chan special. Now I see. That's right. This is the only midship Porsche. Yes, this is midship car. Porsche is well known for RR This car belongs same price range 7 million yen or little more, so we brought this one here. That’s what we thought. It has expensive options such as carbon fiber brake and bucket seat, Is this carbon brake? Carbon brake with 20-inch road wheel. This is big trunk space. This is quite capable with travelling. Well, it is useful. Yes, indeed
And it has space on back as well. This seems lady's space. That's right, maybe for ladies. That's for me. Then look, engine is underneath. Hey, I can't see that. No, it's hidden. Driver and engine become one to drive, Driver and engine become one piece ? It's like an anime hero. Good ! Sounds good. 3.4 liter. Oh yes. It has good sound and response. Yes, sounds so good. OK, let us start with Cayman. PORSCHE's new one, Cayman. 325ps, 7million and 330,000yen. I will check that point, it's midship. PORSCHE is always good in brakes. And it has great torque. Suspension stroke is little too much, I feel. This car is rather comfort, it has slightly loose suspension. It is to be said that Cayman S is faster than 911 with same engine unit at Nurburgring. But Dori-dori seems not giving his maximum attack. However he dive into 26sec's. Mellow and gentle.
Stroke is little too large, at such point. So I don't prefer giving my maximum attack. A car with such stroke is not suite for full attack in this TOUGE or a circuit. It is better just have fun with little sweat in your hand. Such good-looking car suits relaxed manner in driving. This is the only one midship Porsche. It is so fun to drive in closed track. In fact, I haven't imagined drive this here, Gun-sai. Suspension behavior so smooth just like an animal, it moves noou, noou. To be honest it doesn't give me responsive moves. Orido is familiar with Cayman he takes part in PORSCHE driving lesson as an instructor. He points out optional 20-inch wheel leads sensitive behavior at Gun-sai. Gear ratio is little longer here. FLAT 6 sounds so great. How about Taniguchi's impression ? Turn in is good, better than I thought.
Oh, how can I keep my sight here, this corner ? I can't see...can't see the road. Oh, no. Well, the car moves so mild. Strong sunlight and shadow by leaves give driver and cameraman difficulties. The first LOTUS exceeds 300ps. From England 4th works car is pure sport car, as pure as myself, Lotus Exige S. Pure just like me. Hey, Look at your face, you have get used to this. Wouldn't you notice the word, "PURE" You have been modified well. Yes, her mind is well modified. No way. Lightweight, what this Lotus Exige to be. This one also has much power than standard Exige. V6？ V6... With super charger. V6 3.5 liter engine from TOYOTA. 1180kg and 350ps. Must be fast. How much is this price? 8.5million yen. Equivalent to GT-R. Shall we listen to the note?
Yes, please. Wow, that sounds good. Yeah, it's great. What a good sound. Wow? It becomes silent. I got it, it has variable sound suppressor. This is normal, And this is sport. Well, I hear that. I see, driver can choose the sound. Does the silencer have on-off valve? Talking about standard Exige, it doesn't have much power but has good gear stepping ratio, These make this car so fun to drive even without enormous power. "V6 Super Charger", it sounds cool, isn't it? Yes, it's cool. But I do mind about balance. Indeed. It would be great if the superb balance of standard Exige were kept. It looks well stuffed. The engine placed high. To be honest, engine seems big. It seems big one. First of all, I will try this with sport mode. Damn fast ! 7000rpm now. It's damn fast. Dori-dori chose sport mode, which engages stability control because the tire is similar to competition tire.
What am I doing, don't be boooo. Oh! You break the tail ? Over steer occurs with sport mode that should intervene in earlier. "Race Mode" does not interfere till the edge of its limit. This breaks the tail easier than I thought. Maybe because weight in rear. It strokes much in rear than front. Roll action in rear is larger. Was it because cold tires ? It was scary. 1st lap is for warm up. Dori-dori choose race mode for 2nd lap. Now! You have to control the stroke with your throttle work. Time is 26.890sec. This lap must be better than the 1st one. Well, stroke in rear scares me. It's very fast, it's fun, but I can't agree with this. What a car ! This is...going to be a hard job. It's light, front is very light. And rear is very very heavy.
Is V6 super charged engine too big for this lightweight body? Suspension seems limp and soft. Orido seems to have hard time. I got it. This car behaves so sensitive. Because its weight balance, very light in front, heavier in rear. It will be much fun at flat surface. Of course engine is very powerful. It's Taniguchi's turn. Wow, oh. It's so unique. Rear keeps road holding all the time, and front strokes as if the rear is a fulcrum. This feeling is almost RR. Once you get used to it, you maybe enjoy this unruly babe. Great in speed, but you need to get used to. Orido's special recommendation. From Germany 5th entry is ASSIST BMW M3. This is not a works car in fact. But this special entry is made because Mr.Orido fell in love with this car at second hand super car issue. Mr.Mori from ASSIST will explain how the car is.
Please start your part, Mr.Mori. You read the prompter exactly. I recommend this because this is only a tuning car with such gentle and controllable feeling. Probably this can beat out works cars. Yes, I asked Mr.Mori to bring the car here for that. Some times you do a good job. Sometime ? Hmmm, yes. Engine is stock, isn't it ? Yes, stock engine and tuned ECU. Hmm. And suspension ? Yes, suspension, differential gear and brake. All right, differential. Yes, sure. Oh, yes, all right. Lower arm in front suspension is converted to enable larger camber and caster angle at the same time. How is the camber? It's 4deg and a half. 4 and a half ? Yes, it is. Wow, Yes, I can't say this is oni-camber, but 4degree is very large angle. Yes, this is big angle as a streetcar. All the suspension bushings are converted to fully pillow ball bushing makes driver feel stiffness through the driving. Was it pillow ball when we rode ? Yes, that was fully pillow ball converted. This is quite mild as fully pillow ball. It doesn't tell the driver it is pillow ball. I did not notice it was.
Yes, it was gentle. Well-developed chassis with good sound insulation shatter pillow ball's clattering noise. I didn't notice the noise. And this one is not very expensive. How much does it cost for all of this ? Well it costs approximately 3 million yen. Prompter says second hand car itself is 5 million yen market price. And tuning costs 3 million yen, 8 million yen all over. This is equivalent to GT-R price range. How much is this one new? Over 10 million yen. Well, I see. I think this is good choice. Yes it is. This is quite good question which one to choose, GT-R or M3 at same price range. Yes, that is great choice either. How is the performance of ASSIST M3 here at Gun-sai, which was so good in Nikko Circuit? This gives secure feeling, totally secure. No sudden tail breaks, front is reliable. Only thing I can say is, brake is little soft. Time is today's fastest, 26.313sec. This car is so good. Yes, good car indeed. Car keeps gentle feeling in this corner. Well little bumpy feelings should be allowed due to this lowered ride height.
Orido, waiting for this reunion, start his impression. I invite This BMW from ASSIST that was surprisingly good at Nikko Circuit Wow, it's so gentle here too. Power is 420ps approx. This engine runs well. NA has flat and less torque fluctuation character, Front engine gives partial load to front. FR with NA engine is maybe the strongest package at Gun-sai. It is so good turning performance throttle on. Wow. Great fun. Taniguchi drives his first time. Giving flat out now ! Well, it is so good. It has good taste. Superb ! The nose of the car turns in as driver's intension. This car gives you feel so secure. The latest and strongest maker works cars have shown their performance. How are test drivers’ evaluations ? The entire test rides are done. Let's see the points from 3 drivers.
Ok, let us reveal the ranking, start with the 5th. Ok, 5th. Well, 5th rank is, Really? It’s sport car. This one is highly developed as a sport car. Unfortunately it breaks its tail beyond my prediction. Kind a sudden. You break this tail ? Oh, yes. You 're going so far. Well, I confess, I was frightened at very 1st corner. I turned in the 1st corner as usual, rear suspension stroked so deep and start sliding away. Considering its weight, 3.5liter super charged engine is very fast. This is fast car with very heavy rear load, so car swings like a pendulum. Right, front swings like this with rear as a fulcrum. Yes. It reminds me RR car. This is little scary point of this. I guess this car does not fit Gun-sai much. You're right. You can enjoy this in circuit with checking the traffic behind of you. Those who love LOTUS will suite this one. Is that right? Mr.Tsuchiya seems love this one. Ok, next. 4th rank, it gets 91, 93, 93 point. 277 all over.
I gave lower point to this. Wow, it's Porsche, Kei-chan. Porsche Kei-chan S. Yes Kei-chan. Narmal. I assume Kei-chan is one of a gentleman car. Ride is very comfort. Just like Exige, rear strokes little larger to front, so tail easily slides and car go inside when I release a throttle pedal. Did you break this tail too ? Yes, it was little scary, maybe. It has great road holding in front much better than other Porsche, cornering performance is so balanced. But car tells me it should be driven with some elegance. This stage is a kind of radical, In the sense of elegance, Cayman does not fit in Gun-sai. That's right. Cayman targets female drivers for its sales. Huh, hm. This is easy drive sport car, lightweight one. This is what it is made to be. Indeed. The 3rd rank. 3rd one is, Oh. 281 point. STi. That's it. SUBARU get the 3rd. Impreza. Orido gave higher, 95 point. To be honest,
I would prefer more tight response in front. But superb stability in rear and great body stiffness, which is not too hard, not too soft, that is why I am so impressed. It's very sophisticated. I would recommend this one because it does not show long and heavy under steer that 4WD usually have. One thing I have to say is its rear does not react my throttle work. No it does not, rear tires are almost adhered to the road, all the time. Maybe this is because of their WRC experience, nothing happened at road gap. Right. You can attack corners with such comfort ride. This car kept giving me secure feeling. Nothing will happen at rear. That's right, nothing. Then, this is 2nd one. Here comes BMW. Tuning car get the 2nd. This is so well developed one. Yes, 287 point. It was good in circuit as well. Yes, it was. This rank proofs that this car keeps this effort in Gun-sai too. Suspension is so good.
Taniguchi gave 98 point. Very high point, isn't it? Feelings at corners were so good, I thought I liked this there. I see why you gave 98point. Suspension seems little bumpy than my first ride at Nikko Circuit, but engine feelings and very sharp handling only FR can have are still attractive to me. You will be satisfied with purchasing this 5million yen and put 3million yen for tuning. Yes. This car can take the entire roll in your car life. Sophistication of the car is excellent. Yes. Great car. The 1st place is This is 86. I'm not sure It's surprise or not, 86 gets the 1st place. It gets very high point. Taniguchi gave 95 point. Yes. Mr.Taniguchi placed 86 in 2nd rank. 86 is good, it's so good, but BMW is better for me. Anyway 95 is very high point for me. 289 point. Well, BMW have much power than 86, and also it has very good total balance as well.
But what 86 doesn't have is, just power. It doesn't have power. Without power, but I did feel this is very fun. Yes, you can do flat out. To the floor. So this car gives you a joy of flat out driving without any fear. Gear ratio fits here, and you can keep flat long time out soon after quick turn. This gives driver a so good sense of joy. It feels so good. But you won't use for the battle. It won't be a battle 'cause it's too slow. This one is quick at corner, but not such at straight. One thing I have to tell you, there is no other car like this now. Unfortunately. Yes, it is. You will feel so fast when at handle. My point is, lightweight. Light is justice, isn't it? Today's result is, there is no competing car to R35 GT-R from today's line-up. And for the battle, these cars have too big time difference to arrange the close battle here at Gun-sai where drivers have to own certain risk. And it would be risky if we choose Exige for the battle. That's right. So, today we have decided no battle session.
We will keep searching car able to compete with R35 GT-R from worldwide. Has the latest midship sport exceed my NSX-R? The reason I have not replace my NSX-R to latest midship sport cars from all over the world is rear behavior. I always give my attention to the behavior of reversing rear all the cars even world famous sport cars. I notice the information for that behavior whether it tells me in advance such as "it's close, it's going", or sudden break which frighten me. That is one of the most important points for me. If there comes a car with such information, I might replace my NSX-R to that car. Looking at current market, unfortunately there is no sport car I like to purchase and replace my NSX type R.
NSX-R has certain perfection as maker's works tuning car, and it can be adjusted, as you like if you give some tuning. Looking back my NSX-R, my fulfillment has been developed by 10 years of tuning. I do feel some doubt about do the same thing one more time for the new car in my future. I hope the unseen new sport car should content such fulfillment from the first touch. Personally, latest sport car should have similar perfection as MY NSX-R.
