The Nissan GT-R Is Getting Special Clothes For Tokyo

Tokyo Auto Salon / Comments

This is sure to be an internet sensation.

The R35 Nissan GT-R is long overdue for replacement, but that doesn't mean that it's any worse a car than when it first came out. It's still pretty good-looking and is still amazing to drive, and tuners continue to explore its limits both on the race track and on the show circuit. One of these tuners is Kuhl Racing, a name that first went viral for its gold engraved GT-R. The tuner has since learned how to make classier upgrades to cars, but it also knows how to go wild when the mood strikes. The prototype kit you see below is set to be fully unveiled at Tokyo Auto Salon, and it certainly qualifies as crazy.

The kit is called the 'Final Edition' because the tuner has designed and produced so many offbeat and wacky body kits for the GT-R over the years that it's hard to keep up. As is the fad, this kit widens the entire footprint of the car and adds a load of unnecessary intakes and slashes. At the front, the overall shapes of the front grilles and intakes are not dissimilar from those of a regular GT-R, just with an added double splitter and a slight extension of the nose. The fenders are much more extreme, however, and feature a squared design with huge slash-cut vents.

The craziness continues with the aggressive rocker panels that feed into overextended rear fenders. These include extensions that reach almost to the wing mirrors on each door and are purely aesthetic. At the rear, a motorsport-inspired and massive rear diffuser forms part of the redesigned rear bumper, and we're sure that the kit will include a similarly obnoxious wing to complete the look. A new hood will likely also be added. If this sort of lunacy is music to your ears, keep an eye out for updates from Tokyo Auto Salon 2022. If this sort of news makes your eyes bleed, then we'd recommend taking a break from the internet between January 14-16 when the show runs.
