930 Blackbird

FWIW, this was floating around the internets this morning. I cannot vouch for any of the claims.

"The 1987 Turbo 930 from the movie ["Wangan Midnight"] was thoroughly reworked in the hands of its new owner (name withheld as well). It was taken apart piece by piece, and built to create an exact replica of the final variation form of the Manga version of the "Blackbird". It became tube framed, with carbon composite body panels, a full Rauh Welt Begriff Widebody kit (6mm wider than the original and molded in instead of riveted on as per most RWB cars). The owner also attached a full Auto Garage TBK body kit with 964 corner lights and taillights (expensive and very very rare, meant to mimic the 935KR Porsche factory race car), a GruppeM spoiler, a fully built 6 speed adjustable sequential transmission, an uprated 3.6 Liter turbo engine from a 1994 Turbo S, a custom suspension setup with magnesium control arms, and the Pièce de résistance: A single turbocharger taken from Ayrton Senna's own world championship winning MP4/4.

With these modifications, the car makes 600HP at 8000RPM. The torque and power is built high into the rev range, and the owner does in fact use it for top speed. Power delivery is immediate, with the Turbo building in heavy boost at under 2000RPM. By the time the car reaches its 9000RPM limit, the turbo hasn't even had time to breathe yet; it was developed for a car capable of 14,000RPM. Because of this, the "secondary" Blackbird has incredible power delivery even at the top of 6th gear, and with the exception of only aerodynamics, can continue to accelerate very viciously over 300KM/H. So much so in fact, that it can push your back into the seat with another wallop as the throttle is stomped on.

Sadly, the owner rarely takes it out on Wangan anymore, and instead prefers to take it to circuit events where he can race with other highly competitive cars. Still, with a theoretical top speed of 400KM/H (under the right gearing) this monster sits, somewhere in the world, waiting for its next pray."[sic]

Yeah Wangan Midnight is one of my old favs. Best Motoring did a real life comparison a while ago, the Devil s30, the Porsche, Testarossa, and Skyline.

I'm sorry but regardless of gearing, and even if it were given a massive boost in hp, this car is getting no where close to 400 km/hr.

Cool car, nevertheless.

Just realized, I think I have a copy of the Manga comic that movie is based on....
