Who can say no to a legit R34 Z-Tune?

I guess we’re dedicating this week to old school GT-Rs! Here’s a picture of the R34 Z-Tune we are proud to have owned for a short period of time before it got sent off to its new owner! Drool worthy? I think so!

Bulletproof x R34 Z-Tune

Bulletproof Automotive x Nismo R34 GT-R Z-Tune

Bulletproof Automotive’s R34 GT-R Nismo Z-Tune.

Such an honor, such an incredible car. This car is a legit and super clean Z-Tune, not a kit car or replica. These pictures were from earlier. We’ve now sold the car to an appreciative new owner. There’s a Z-Tune rolling around now with Bulletproof stickers in an undisclosed location. That makes us very happy just to think of it.

PS – Sorry the blog has been a little inactive. We’ve been busy with awesome stuff like this and designing/producing original new parts. More blog posts will be coming. In the meantime, we update our facebook fan page daily if you want to stay better in touch with us.


PS – Thank you to our friend Mr. Ito.

More Midnight Purple Z-Tune

Posted by

Two weeks ago I announced that we’re offering a Midnight Purple R34 GT-R Nismo Z-Tune for sale. Just as I was shocked to be able to locate the car and offer it for sale, the internet seemed equally shocked that the car existed.

It is really interesting to see how people act online at times like that. I thought it was a positive thing that I was sharing with everyone here on the blog, since I felt that we had just unearthed a major discovery of JDM legend with this car for sale. But then I started seeing crazy rumors online that we possibly had a fake Z-Tune we were selling. That negativity spread like wildfire into discussion that consisted of false rumors and insulting the intellect of Americans and other such nonsense. It was crazy to watch the drama unfold. All negative trash coming out of something that we should have all been excited and inspired by. Ultimately I never went on there and joined the argument since I dont see a need to defend 10 legitimate years of being in business without any trickery or fake crap…and you know what… sure enough the truth came out that the car is real when someone found an old Japanese magazine article discussing it.

Clearly it became apparent (sadly again) there are a lot of negative people out there perhaps trying to push their own interests through slandering others. In this case it shocking to me,  I mean…we don’t even sell knockoff parts of any sort, yet we’d sell a fake car!? Seriously!? I’d sooner close up my business and flee the country than sell something fake.

So this post is dedicated to all of those who doubted…here are a few more pics of the Midnight Purple Z-Tune for sale. I’ve also updated the link here with the new pics (I really love that first picture…I wish the owner took more pictures of his car for us!):

The Rarest Of The Rare – Nismo Z-Tune R34 Midnight Purple by Ben Schaffer

Midnight Purple R34 Nismo Z-Tune

The is the purple unicorn of the Japanese car collector world if you will…

There were 19 Nismo Z-Tunes produced in Japan and they were all Silver. This is the one mythical one which is different from the rest. We’ve just been asked to sell a Midnight Purple (OEM GT-R Color) Nismo Z-Tune. This is the only one in the world and I’m shocked to even see this car in existance, never mind have the ability to help broker the sale of it.

(by the way, we have a Silver Z-Tune for sale as well with 5000km on it)

The car has only 3,000km on it. It is a Nismo full Z-Tune conversion.

The car is for sale FOB Tokyo, Japan.

For inquires please email sales@gt-rr.com

The car can be found here:

The Find – Nismo R34 GT-R Z-Tune For Sale!

Nismo Z-Tune R34 GT-R For Sale by GT-RR.COM

I just returned from my most recent trip to Japan. During these trips I’m often lucky enough to find some really cool stuff because of my network of friends out there in the industry. Usually its new parts and inside news, but this time it was something far different… I was shocked to find a friend of mine who asked for my assistance in selling a very VERY rare BNR34 GT-R Z-Tune by Nismo. This is an authentic Nismo produced car (only 19 were ever made). The car (as expected) is an extremely special collectors car which is unlikely to ever depreciate in value due to the historical significance and legendary status amongst GT-R enthusiasts (plus only 19 exist and no more will ever be produced). Not to mention is runs like a monster on crack for those lucky enough to take it to the streets or circuit.

I took some pictures of the car when I got a chance to see it in the flesh. It was a really special moment to get up close and personal with this rare piece of JDM GT-R history. I’ve seen these cars in the past at events but usually they were roped off and inaccessible. Checking out the custom bits that cant be bought was a special moment for me. Things like the carbon fiber reinforced chassis points and the insanely over-engineered titanium Z-Tune SPL strut tower bar were the little joys in life that remind me how much I love my job!

I’ve added the car to GT-RR.COM’s website and it can be found here:


For those fortunate enough to ask the scary question of how much it costs, please email us at sales@gt-rr.com.

For the rest of us, more car porn (pictures of this beast) can be found at the link above and a couple of extra pics below.

Rear Mounted Oil Cooler

Just a quickie…after just writing the conclusion of the rear mounted radiator post, I thought this deserved honorable mention since its a cousin to the rear mounted radiator mod if you will (although much much easier to do):

Another popular image of that setup is this:

Check those twin coolers peeking out of that bumper!
