Now that this GT-R is completed, I thought I’d start to share a little more of the background.
The GT-R as shown above was still relatively stock in that photo. When it debuts at SEMA it will look entirely different. As such, I dont mind sharing a couple of pictures here because it’ll never be seen looking like this again.
Goal: Although I have two different GT-Rs I’ve been preparing for SEMA, each one has a very different concept and design goal. The goal of this car for Toyo tires is to make the world debut of the 20″ R888 tire for Toyo at their SEMA booth. As a campaign car for a tire as extreme as the R888, this car needed to be aggressive and track ready. This was to be achieved by using track tested parts such as the Amuse front diffuser, Amuse high mount carbon wing, Mines Racing canards, Endless Mono-6 brakes, Amuse suspension, mixed with weight reduction parts like a dry carbon hood, trunk, titanium exhaust, titanium catalytic converters and mid pipes. Most importantly, all of the parts needed to fit together in both design and in function. I then worked closely with Manabu “Mana-P” Suzuki of Option and MS-R fame, to design some one off graphics which represent my desired style for the car. I even had Mana-P redesign the GT-RR logo for the car and future use.
Overall, the car is meant to produce the most power to the wheels of any street legal GT-R yet. Between the power, the braking, suspension, aerodynamics, weight reduction and unique design, I hope to have created one of the world’s leading tuned GT-Rs.
Of course the car represents the very best tuning parts available world wide, which is the essential function of GT-RR.COM. Consulting and helping our clients choose the right parts is something all of my businesses pride ourselves on being the best at. This car represents our ideals when a client gives us the freedom to create what we feel is the best car possible in the shortest amount of time (the car was prepared in less than 3 weeks).
With this particular GT-R coming from our client in New Jersey for us to build, it ends up being a great example of the custom services that we offer our clients. Much like the cars I’ve built in the past, I put my heart and soul into the planning, design and execution of this car. Although I’m perhaps best known as a JDM parts distributor or possibly a writer (to those of you here on my blog), my love is designing car concepts like this one and seeing it go from design concept to flawless execution. If I could do this all day, I might finally be able to satisfy my addiction to this car tuning bug.
