Team Galag TG1 – Modified Nissan GT-R for the Gumball 3000 Rally

By - May 21st, 2013

Hailed from oil wealth, Saudi Arabia’s Team Galag not only entered a “street-legal” Batman Tumbler Tank to this year’s Gumball 3000 rally, but created another one-of-the-kind supercar just for the intercontinental race. Dubbed the TG1, the Team Galag creation is actually a heavily modified Nissan GT-R. A complete “striped-down and rebuilt” project, Team Galag enlisted help from Parker Brothers Concepts once again, the same folks who built the Tumbler. Weight saving carbon fiber in place of the original aluminum alloy body, Galag asked UK’s Litchfield Motors to “re-tune” the engine. Up from GT-R’s original 550 horsepower, the TG1 is capable of generating 750 horsepower instead, with a 0 to 62 mph time of just 2.68 seconds. To see this beast of a machine in action, simply follow Gumball 3000 rally throughout this week as it stops in Stockholm, Turku, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Riga, Warsaw, Vienna, with the finish line in Monaco.
