One brave soul from Singapore is the first person to drive any kind of supercar to the base camp of Mount Everest after completing the trek in his modified Nissan GT-R.
The ambitious explorer, Kah Chuan Hoong, posted a selection of images of his incredible journey on his Facebook page, perfectly highlighting the treacherous roads he had to navigate to reach Everest’s base camp, located at 5,380 m above sea level.
Hoong’s journey commenced in Singapore and saw him trek across to Nepal in what appears to be a relatively stock GT-R. The only obvious modifications is its increased ride height and the fitment of a custom front bumper that allows for improved clearance, something particularly useful on some of the difficult roads and water crossings.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about this journey is that Gozilla was actually able to survive at such dizzying heights. As enthusiasts know, altitude has a massive impact on the efficiency of an internal combustion engine as the density of the air decreases.
Hoong says that he will drive the car all the way back to Singapore, passing through China, Thailand and Malaysia.
