Professional photographer Nicholas TJ.R has captured some stunning images of the new Nissan GT-R over the past few years, and this picture above is straight up amazing. The Nissan GT-R you see here features a Wald International Black Bison body kit, consisting of a carbon fiber hood, side skirts, rear fender arches, and a new front bumper with carbon fiber throughout. At the rear is a new Esprit dry carbon fiber wing along with a carbon diffuser underneath. Wald P13F alloy wheels measuring 22-inches are found with their car tuning packages, while they come wrapped in Yokohama Advan tires.
We now have the true Godzilla in town, the AMS tuned Nissan GT-R has set the standard for all GTR owners with a record quarter mile time of just 9.052 seconds at 166.7 mph. Called the ALPHA 12, this insane car produces an amazing 1,309 horsepower with 994 lb-ft of torque to the all wheel drive Nissan GTR R35. The AMS Performance tuning company still plans to improve the ALPHA 12 GTR track times when the weather and track conditions improve. This was set in 90 degree heat, which we all know takes a toll on performance when it gets that hot outside. Pricing for the ALPHA 12 is not yet available, however we do know that the ALPHA 10 kit for the Nissan GT-R boosts the ouput to 1,000 HP on 93 octane, and costs $63,995. Prepare yourself to be blown away with the video after the jump.
Check out this car crash video after the jump of a Nissan GTR flying through the streets of Moscow and smashing several parked cars on its way. This occurred on July 6, and was caught by a couple security cameras that have now flooded Youtube. It appears the Nissan GT-R driver was trying to pass another car when it lost a wheel and was sent into a path of destruction for the innocent cars parked on the side of the road. The largest SUV of them all was thrown into the air as the solid construction of the GTR held it together to keep sliding down the road. See the video and more aftermath pictures of the car crash after the jump.
The all new Nissan Juke is definitely a unique car, so the tuning firm Impul from Japan decided to add some extra styling and performance for the already great selling model. This Nissan Juke tuning kit starts out with a new front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser, and large rear wing. Additional aesthetically pleasing mods include the redesigned front grill, decals, and mirror trim. Under the hood, Impul updated the computer software for both the non-turbo and turbocharged versions of the Nissan Juke 1.6-liter 4-cylinder powerplant.
A modest tuning package for the Nissan 370Z has been released by the German tuners Schmidt Revolution. No engine modifications are present, however the Nissan received new styling for the exterior, sound improvements, and better handling. First, is the addition of the three-piece alloy rims available in either 20 or 21-inch models. They come wrapped in Hankook high performance tires and are priced at €5,999 (US$8,680). Next, a sport exhaust system gives the 370Z a deeper sound and allows the engine to breathe easy. Finally, a H&R coilover suspension was installed along with new dampers to give the car a lower and more aggressive appearance than it previously had.
Sometimes all you need to tune up your car is a new set of wheels. Take this Nissan GTR for example, sporting a brand new set of ADV10 Deep Concave rims wrapped in low profile tires. It doesn’t take a thousand mods to make your car unique, however a few thousands dollars can get you a completely different look in just about a hour from any wheel specialist. Just look at this Nissan GT-R, not a single aftermarket part was installed besides the wheels, and it looks stunning. Props to the guys from ADV for this wheel design measuring 21×10.5 up front, and 21×12.5 at the rear. Like the saying goes, “less is more” it’s good to spend the extra buck for a nice set of rims, you usually won’t be disappointed.
Check out this Porsche Panamera look-a-like with a custom front face, side, and rear, but based off a Nissan 350Z Roadster. This car was featured at the Tokyo Auto Salon, and reported from the guys at carscoop. At first many assume it is a Porsche Boxster with an extreme body kit and Porsche Panamera front, however when you look closer you will see similarities to the Nissan 350Z. The interior of this car is what really draws the most attention, looking like it just snowed inside with everything white. See the video after the jump.
The tuners from AMS Performance have put together the ultimate package so far for the Nissan GT-R called the Alpha 9. Coming close to many of the Bugatti Veyron’s world records, the new GT-R kit catapults the stock 530 horsepower to an amazing 800 crank hp with a few major upgrades. These include new billet wheel ball bearing turbos, new turbo inlet pipes, a larger front mount intercooler, 90 mm exhaust system, custom calibrated MAF sensors, and new ECU tuning to keep everything running smooth. The Nissan GT-R is now able to run the 1/4 mile in 9.95 seconds seconds at 141 mph, which set a new pump gas R35 GTR quarter mile record. Pricing for this package starts at $21,999 USD, however we are sure they will continue to improve it to eventually push close to 1,000 horsepower, and beat all the current Bugatti records at a fraction of the cost.
Last weekend I was driving on the highway and got my first chance to witness a Nissan GT-R in action. The guy driving the godzilla Nissan flew by my truck going atleast 120+ mph and the only way I could tell it was the new GT-R was from the taillights since it was dark outside. The way it shook the ground and rattled my truck as it zoomed by makes me want to take out a loan for one tomorrow, and these official track numbers from Nissan sound promising. At the Sendai Hi-land Race Way, the 2012 Nissan GTR 0-100 km/h acceleration time was tested, and did not disappoint. It wasn’t able to break the 3 second mark, however was spot on 3.0 seconds. Considering this was a factory standard edition shows the true potential of these AWD cars.
The Nissan Juke is becoming more popular by the day, and we’re slowly seeing new aftermarket parts available for the unique Japanese crossover. Previously, we posted some pictures of a photo-shopped Nissan Juke tuning job, but now the tuners from Germany’s Cobra Technology have released these styling upgrades. Giving it a rougher and tougher look are a stainless steel front grille guard with a pair of LED daytime running lights, which are also said to meet the European pedestrian safety standards. Other custom parts consist of tubular side steps, a sports exhaust system with twin tail pipes, and the customers choice of 19 or 20-inch multi-spoke alloy rims for their modified Juke.
Here is a new package released by Senner Tuning for the Nissan 370Z called the Asphalt Surfer. The exterior styling received minimal modifications, featuring a new set lightweight alloy Tsunami wheels and decals along the sides. These wheels are available in either a racing white or matte black finish, and measure to be 20×9 in the front, and 20×10 at the rear. Also improving the look is a new sport suspension package priced at 1,499 EUR to give the Nissan 370Z an aggressive stance. The German tuning firm moved onto the engine bay next, and hooked the car up with an extensive upgrade program under the hood.
