Watch: This Man’s Dream Comes True At 75, Hits 321 Kmph In A Nissan Gt R

The man used a modified 2012 Nissan GT-R that is capable of churning out 1,200 hp peak power.

Many have said that age is just a number, but Barry, a 75-year-old man who tamed Godzilla, has proven otherwise. Not literally, but the car that has become synonymous with the term, the Nissan GT-R. The man hit 321 kmph in a Nissan GT-R, proving that speed does not diminish with age. A video has emerged online showing how the man tamed his 2012 Nissan GT-R, which had been modified to perform like a beast.

The man drives a modest Honda Civic, but judging by his calm demeanour, it is unlikely that he also owns a high-performance vehicle such as a Nissan GT-R. The man shuffles out of his Honda Civic with the help of a walking cane in the first few minutes of the video. He also expresses his desire for a forthcoming road trip. Eventually, while discussing all of this, he comes across a bookcase containing two sets of keys, one for the Honda Civic and the other for the Nissan GT-R. This adds a new twist to the video.

The man’s Nissan GT-R has a completely rebuilt engine. Everything has been updated, from the crankshaft to the turbochargers. The man believes the engine can produce around 1,200 hp at peak power. To handle that kind of thrust, the car’s transmission has also been thoroughly upgraded. It’s no surprise that the man was able to hit 321 kmph with that mark flat out.

The video was shot on the long runway of South Africa’s Upington International Airport. At the start of the video, Barry is heard saying that he will have to slow down when he gets older, but he is unsure when that will be. The video, ironically, demonstrates this.
