How’s this for quick, eh?

Equipped with a fire extinguishing system with water and foam on board attached to a hose pipe accessed via the sizeable boot, this GT-R is designed to get to the scene of a blaze in the quickest possible time. In standard road-car form, the GT-R is capable of lapping the famous Nordschleife in only 7min 26secs, and though this one has an extra 200kg of fire-fighting equipment on board, it can still lap the challenging circuit in less than 8mins.

The fire-fighting conversion was carried out by M&M Automotive, a Bonn-based specialist for car development and motor sports. The GT-R’s two standard backseats were taken out and replaced with a 50l water tank, which was secured with a roll cage.

This firebrand will put out fires.

There is a medium-pressure extinguisher system (20 bars) as well as a winding device for the hose. The only other differences between this GT-R and one straight from the factory is the additional radio communication system, the new Recaro sports seats and the roll bar. With a foam reach of around 18m and a 20m hose, the unit will be able to fight fire for around two minutes on one tank.
