Watch as Matt gets behind the wheel of Rocky Bhattel’s 860bhp Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R. Better yet, you can win this car!

Driving fast cars is something we get used to. That sounds like an arrogant statement right from the off, but the luxury of our jobs means we get to test the latest and greatest manufacturers can offer. From the Civic Type R FK8 and Fiesta ST, right up to the McLaren 720s and Porsches etc. You get the picture. It’s very rare, though, that we get to drive other people’s builds. To put it plain and simple, who’s going to trust us getting behind the wheel of their pride and joy to hoon about?

So when we got the call from one of our close friends Rocky Bhattel, who also runs one the UKs hottest car clubs in GTR Cartel, to drive a car from his collection, well it was a no brainer. A quick trip down south to meet up and suddenly we were piloting his 860bhp Nissan Skyline GT-R. Here’s how we got on…

The best bit, though, is that you win this very car. Head over to Superstar Comps and get yourself a ticket in the draw to win that very 860bhp Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R. The winner is picked via Facebook live using Google’s random number generator. Tickets cost £20. T&Cs apply.
