GT-RR complete car build - Zac's 2012 GT-R

One of our greatest joys is taking on complete car conceptualization and managing builds.  We tap our networks to select the best partners for each aspect of the car build.  We extensively consult with our clients to determine the very best possible parts to meet their goals.  On the blog and in the Facebook gallery, we will be updating the in-progress photos of our client Zac’s incredible GT-R build.  Zac’s car is aggressively modified but done so in his own style, which is classy and somewhat understated compared to many of the other wild builds.  What defines Zac’s build is the extreme quality and attention to detail.  You’ll get a better feeling for this as the build unfolds.

RevoZport’s Raze for BMW 1M

Know anyone with a BMW 1M Coupe? We’re distributing for RevoZport and they have this pretty great looking aero kit. They’re also making carbon roof replacements, hood and trunk for lightweight parts. If anyone wants any RevoZport parts let us know!

GT-RR R35 GT-R Demo Car #4 – Parts Arrive Pt. 2

Posted by

Continuing from yesterday…AMS #2

AMS Carbon Fiber Roof GT-R

A couple of days ago we received another part for the GT-R build…this time a roof replacement produced with multiple layers of carbon fiber. The roof was also made by AMS, but rather than the Canadian AMS this roof is built by the American AMS known for all of those blazing fast drag Evos and GT-Rs.

Back when I was preparing the Toyo and the Mobil 1 GT-RR demo cars we had both of the cars converted to carbon fiber roofs. Conceptually I wanted to build what I felt the Spec V would/should come with from Nissan, a carbon fiber roof. Unfortunately this was nearly 2 years ago and back then there was no carbon fiber roof replacement available for purchase so we did a carbon overlay on those two cars. It looked cool and was perfect for a SEMA car and demo car, especially at a time when very few tuning parts were available to put into use… but now that time has gone by, a more perfect solution presented itself when AMS released a quality carbon roof replacement.

Why? This roof shaves off 9lbs from the top of the car! As you hopefully already know, taking weight off of the top of a car is FAR more beneficial than taking weight off of the bottom or center of a car. To build a well rounded complete car, replacing the roof skin with carbon fiber was something I felt essential for the concept and function of this project car.

PS – JDM purists out there, don’t be alarmed…these first two parts I’m discussing for the demo car are not JDM, yes I know. The reason is because these are the first two items I’ve received and as always the locally sourced stuff comes in faster. I have a TON of parts coming in from Japan for the car, some of which are not even released/announced yet. Lots of interesting content will be coming, I promise that. I just bought a second GT-R motor today too by the way…simple project, it is not.
