No stranger to special deliveries, Netherlands-based courier company TNT Express recently shipped two Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 racing vehicles from Daventry, UK to Yokokama, Japan. The cars, pictured below, were trucked from Daventry in Northamptonshire to Heathrow Airport and flown to Luxembourg Airport. From Luxembourg, the high-spec vehicles were air freighted to Narita International Airport fifty miles east of Tokyo before being delivered to their final destination in delivery vehicles specially designed for racing cars.
TNT reported that one of the major challenges of the delivery was the necessity of extreme caution against shock: cases of bumper damage are not rare, they said, so in order to deliver the vehicles in pristine condition it was necessary to use specialised vehicles.
The vehicles were prepared by leading UK motorsport company JRM and delivered at the request of NISMO, a subsidiary of Nissan, one of Japan's leading automobile companies.
