The AMS Alpha 9… Continue Reading...
While most of the aftermarket likes to overwhelm consumers with excessive amounts of horsepower, some companies like to refine the finer details, making the driving experience a more fulfilling one. Take Umbrella Auto Design for example; they began their business by focusing on Acura’s flagship supercar, the NSX. They built a wickedly clean demo car,… Continue Reading...
The reality of a fully streetable 8-second Nissan GT-R just got a whole lot closer. AMS took their Alpha 10 GT-R demo car back to the quarter mile after their 9.33 pass to lay down an amazing 9.192 @ 163.12 mph track time. Now obviously going from 9.33 to 9.192 is easier than going from… Continue Reading...
Switzer Performance announced their Nissan GT-R R1K kit earlier last month, claiming 1,005-awhp through their custom package sporting a pair of Garrett watercooled turbochargers and C16 fuel.

Oh how much we love Top Secret’s signature gold finish on their cars. We were actually disappointed in how long it has taken Top Secret to show off a Nissan GT-R doused in their gold, but boy was the wait worth it. But as you may be able to tell from the above photo, Top… Continue Reading...

Austrian-based tuner, Königseder has built a demo Nissan GT-R to show off their new front lip, diffuser and side skirts.

Aiding in those horsepower gains are an ECU upgrade, air filter and titanium… Continue Reading...
After news of a track-only GT-R surfaced several months ago, Nissan has now released their 2011 GT-R Club Track Edition, a collaboration of several brilliant minds in Japan. Nissan teamed up with NISMO, Nova Engineering and Nordring for this special edition GT-R that’s only available to members of The Prestige Club of GT-R. Specific race… Continue Reading...
With all the hype surrounding AMS’ 9-second GT-R and SP Engineering’s record-setting GT-R, we knew more Nissan GT-Rs would be coming out of the woodwork. And now there is GTC Titan’s entry all the way from the UK. Their GT-R has been modified with what they call a 750R Power Pack which netted 735-hp and… Continue Reading...
If Password JDM’s Mitsubishi EVO X isn’t enough to prove that they’re excelling in the department of carbon fiber production, then their Nissan GT-R product line should solidify any thoughts otherwise. As near perfect as Nissan’s R35 GT-R is, it could stand to lose a few pounds and carbon fiber components are one of the… Continue Reading...
What will those kooky tuners think of next? Tommy Kaira, a leading manufacturer of very fine JDM goodies, has been perfecting its Nissan GT-R LED emblem since their preview at Tokyo Auto Salon 2010. They’ve also took the liberty to announce more LED-equipped goodies from rear side markers, door sills and front winkers. LED is… Continue Reading...

Over in Japan some crafty tuner has outfitted the Nissan R35 GT-R front end onto their Skyline R34 Coupe. And while it seems like the overall body flows… Continue Reading...
Last month we posted up the video of SP Engineering’s record setting pass in a pair of Nissan GT-R’s equipped with GReddy’s TD06SH 20G turbo upgrade kit. A video has now surfaced showing the details of GReddy’s turbo upgrade kit for the Nissan GT-R and it’s worth a watch, even if you don’t own one… Continue Reading...
It didn’t take long for this Formula Drift season to stir up some controversy. As we mentioned in our Formula DRIFT Long Beach Recap, the Hankook Nissan GT-R was noticeably missing from competition. We knew for a fact there was no way they would let that slide for another event, considering sitting out one event… Continue Reading...
Modified Nissan GT-Rs are surprisingly few at the 2009 SEMA Show, but the ones that are in attendance are impressive machines.

The car features modifications including shocks by… Continue Reading...
To our surprise, the number of Nissan GT-Rs at this year’s SEMA Show is much lower than expected, with the Camaro being the obviously dominant vehicle. One of the nicest GT-Rs on display is the Black Bison model from Japanese tuner WALD. We found the car over at the Jonari booth, the company that distributes… Continue Reading...
One of the most surprising vehicles a this year’s SEMA show (and a refreshing change from the excessive number of Camaros) was the dry carbon widebody Nissan GT-R.
