Lewis Hamilton is known to be a big fan of luxury cars and it was visible once again on the roads of Japan – driving an R34 GTR
Lewis Hamilton appears to be making the most of his free time in the off-season. In a recent video posted by the Mercedes star on his Instagram handle, Hamilton can be seen enjoying driving a luxurious R34 GTR on the streets of Japan. Hamilton himself shared the clip on his profile with the caption: “I only like to drive on the track, but I make exceptions.”
In the video, Hamilton can be seen enjoying a swift drive on the Shuto Expressway of Japan while performing some skillful eye-catching stunts. The 57-second video starts with him rubbing his hands together and smiling, before engaging in the kind of driving that looks straight out of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. At one point, Hamilton can be heard saying: “Something’s not right with this car, man”, as smoke was pouring into the cabin through the transmission tunnel. However, it wasn’t much of an issue and was quite a hassle-free ride.
