John Gomes comes from a family that loves sports cars. His passion was always supported heavily by his father ! John has always love Japanese cars but he wants to be unique and special. That's why he made an obvious choice : to buy a R35 GTR and then modify the hell out of it ! His GTR is the only one to have a wide carbon fiber Skipper wide  body kit.

The First Skipper GTR in the USA
What started your passion ?

"I loved cars since I was about 8, my dad used to race cars for living so that's were it all started."

What was your first love ?
The R34 is the car he first fell in love with. The famous franchise the Fast and the Furious helped a lot in supporting this opinion.
Anything special about it what did you loved most?   "The rarity of the car and off course Paul Walker had it haha. " Mind you the money can spent can buy you a lot of large luxury sedans !

Why the R35?
" I loved the body style it's one of the best looking coupe sports cars and the power and it has huge aftermarket options and you can pretty much kill luxury cars and super cars with ease !"
We totally agree with John, the R35 and its hand made engine was build and engineered to be as fast as a super car but twice as cheap ! Power to the people !


Any plans for the future ?

"Getting the car prept currently to make 1000 whp!"

"The car currently has the SBD700 package the only skipper wide body carbon GTR in the country built by Apac and  July I will be doing the motor transmission and bigger turbos that will be done by IAP!"
