A fatal accident happened last Friday in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The 37-year-old driver of a Nissan GT-R had been driving down Atlantic Avenue with his 24-year-old passenger Munich Angeloni. The accident killed the passenger and placed the driver in hospital with a critical condition.
Internet rumours suggest that the GT-R in question had completed a 1,200hp AMS Alpha conversion recently. Sao Paulo is home to the only South American tuning shop to carry official AMS dealership status so the claim is entirely plausible. Its thought that the car had standard rims and standard road tyres, causing the back end to step out under heavy acceleration.
