NZ Performance Car 232, April 2016

Think of this issue of NZ Performance Car as an unofficial V 4&Rotary Nationals special as we take a look at some of the stars that stole the show. This includes the cover duo, a pair of identical killer-looking Nissans from ‘Quake City’ that have been blowing up the internet with their wild ride heights, colour-change pain, and big-dish Work Equips. This is all alongside a look at Jesse’s JDM heart-transplanted E46, the standout star of the NZ Performance Car stand.

Our V 4&Rotary Nationals coverage itself extends across seven pages, covering all the show’s must-see rides, and all the action from both days. We also stop in to Rod Millen’s for Leadfoot, and head to Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park for round three of the Demon Energy D1NZ Drifting Championship Series, and meet the drivers behind the helmets.  

If you’re a fan of garage-built monsters, we have a GTiR Pulsar built for tarmac sprints and hill climbs, and we also continue our series of Superlap spotlights with three more of New Zealand’s fastest. For the street-car aficionados, we have a stroked Evo that is dripping carbon, and also a rapid Civic hatch.

And, of course, there is also the usual fill of news, interviews, products, Weekend Warrior, Cruise Mode, and Daily Driven to keep you entertained.
