Fast and Furious 6 Nissan GT-R Revealed
Share this Article

Tantamount to the automotive Antichrist, Fast and Furious movies discourage car knowledge faster than huffing exhaust fumes. But hey, there are always cool cars to ogle.

With less credibility than The Expendables (pick either), Fast and Furious 6 will debut this summer with all the common sense of Lindsay Lohan’s pitiful path to self-destruction. Whether or not you plan to see the film, it’s worthwhile to stop and stare for a few minutes at the tuned-up Nissan GT-R that will appear in the movie.

Both R’s Tuning and SP Engineering are collectively responsible for internal modifications for the blue Godzilla pictured above.

The cooling system and camber arms were installed by R’s while SP Engineering worked with the Switzer P800 turbo kit. They also installed an HKS downpipe, resonated Y-pipe and re-calibrated the ECM.

Aerodynamic changes came courtesy of BenSpora while Seibon added carbon fiber pieces like the doors, trunk, roof and more.

All told, the GT-R stands to have infinitely more credibility than the movie it will appear in. According to the dyno chart, the car is making 685 hp and 603 lb-ft of torque.

    Oh, good grief, please stop with the Fast and Furious franchise, no body cares anymore. The whole street racing scene is so last decade.

    Roof or hood?  Or both?

    Isn’t this getting a tad unrealistic? Anyone into the street racing scene only has crappy Honda Civics and Nissans 180SX’s with fart cannons, not a 650hp+ Nissan R35 GT-R with carbon fiber body panels.
    What they should do is grab an old base-model Mitsubishi Lancer, spray the hood with chalkboard paint, add an exhaust and you’re looking at something totally hecktic!

    F1 and Nascar used to be streetracing when does it get old?

  • Mark Gold

    Well, you’re half correct. NASCAR (stock cars) were originally bootleggers who developed their skills evading the cops, and eventually it did become a legitimate sport. Formula 1 on the other hand, has always been a organized sport. You might be thinking of drag racing and groups like the NHRA and IHRA. All of the “street racing” motorsports eventually realized how dangerous and stupid it was to be racing on public roads which is why they organized and moved their respective sport to the race track. Even drifting is organized and raced on a proper track. Here in Sacramento, the local raceway has open drag nights where street cars can come race for a measly $15.

    yeah until people are passing you left and right either because A..  Your car is TOO SLOW…  or B.. you enjoy fitting in with everyone else and follow all the driving laws and drive like an 80 year old grandpa…

    underground street racing is still very much alive you just have to have the right car for it which many people can’t afford to tune or buy fast enough cars to race now due to the economy…
