The Black Edition wheels are lighter than the new 10 spoke wheels.
13 psi still leaves a lot on the table for upgrades. With a Cobb AccessPORT on a 2009-2011 GT-R, on 91 octane fuel, owners and tuners have found they can run to to about 18 psi peak.
One foot of roll out will drop the 0-60 times down into the 2's.
The STILLEN Urethane Lip Spoiler adds 2" of length to the OEM fascia, and installs directly onto the vehicle over the factory piece. This lip spoiler is designed to hold additional air onto the nose, with flares on the side corners producing a canard effect for extra control.The urethane parts come in a flat black finish that can be installed as delivered,or you can chose to have your body shop paint them body color, or the factory KAE lower body color. Check out a few photos of the parts installed.
Another major benefit of the front lip spoiler is the durability. Constructed out of high-quality polyurethane, this front spoiler is nearly indestructible and carries a limited lifetime warranty. This means it can stand up to the hazards of the race track or the drive around town with 100% driver/owner confidence.

Continuing the aerodynamic stabilization of the GT-R, STILLEN has developed new side skirts with a 2 inch ledge built in to apply more downforce to the car. This design comes from the testing performed on the legendary NISSAN 300ZX, campaigned in the IMSA sports car series at Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring. Tested in the Lockheed Martin wind tunnel, the Nissan engineers found that by enhancing the side ledge on the rocker it applied a incremental amount of downforce at higher speeds thus keeping the car planted and more stable through high speed corners.
Another major benefit of the rockers is the greatly improved appearance. Offering a much more aggressive look and race proven engineering these rockers are sure to catch attention and compliments. Just like all STILLEN body work these are constructed out of durable polyurethane, ready for paint, and offer a limited lifetime warranty. Perfect for daily driving or track days and utilize the factory skirt mounting points to ensure a perfect fit and finish.

Dr Shinichiro SAKURAI - known as "Skyline no Chichi" ( 'Father Of The Skyline' ) in Japan - passed away aged 81 years. Cause of death was given as heart failure.
Dr SAKURAI joined what became the Prince Motor Co. ( itself formed from the ashes of the Nakajima and Tachikawa aircraft companies, through Fuji Sangyo and Fuji Precision Machine ) in 1952, and was the chief project manager on the ALSID-1 model, the first Skyline.
Dr SAKURAI was deeply involved with race related activities at Prince, especially in record breaking and sports car racing, and headed the team which gained notoriety for taking on - and hounding - a Porsche 904 GTS with a gaggle of hot-rodded S54 Skylines in the 1964 Japan GP. Even though the 'fox' got away that time, SAKURAI resolved to build cars that could take it on again, and win.
When Prince was forcibly merged with Nissan in 1966, SAKURAI's team at Murayama kept some degree of autonomy and continued with their race-related activities. The first truly new Skyline model to be launched after the merger with Nissan was the C10 'Hakosuka', with Dr SAKURAI and his team making sure that a special homologation model - the PGC10 'Skyline GT-R', its S20 twin cam engine derived from the DNA of the Prince GR8 race unit - was produced, and went racing. The 'Skyline GT-R' legend had been born.....
Working under Dr SAKURAI at that time were many of the people who would go on to work on the later generations of GT-R. One of these was a young Shurei ITOH, chassis designer on the C10 Skyline and later Project Chief on the R32 Skyline GT-R. Kozo WATANABE - Chief Designer on the R33 GT-R project - was another SAKURAI protege.
Dr SAKURAI went on to become head of Nissan's offshoot AUTECH, and was inducted into the Japanese Auto Industry Hall of Fame several years ago. He was always happy to give interviews, and appeared in many Japanese publications over the years. However he never overshadowed his team members, and was held in high regard by many who worked with him - especially his engineers and race drivers. He will be missed.

Nissan and Polyphony Digital/Gran Turismo have an intertwined relationship on the R35 GT-R. The Nissan Skyline GT-R, and the Nissan GT-R have been featured prominently in the Gran Turismo series, and contribute to the world wide fan base in places where the cars were never even originally available. Polphony Digital designed the MFD(multi function display) that shows engine parameters in the R35 GT-R. 7tune posted these pictures of the real car that was used as the basis of the toy R35 GT-R given away in some of the collectors editions of Gran Turismo 5.
This car was on display at an endurance race of top Japanese tuners at Fuji Speedway. We will be looking for some footage of the six hour race, as about 10% of the seventy cars competing were R35 GT-Rs’. Head over to 7tune for more photos and coverage from Tokyo Auto Salon.
Run 1 : 9.8 @ 236 Km/h , 60 Ft of 1.65
Run 2 : 9.58 @ 239.7 Km/h, 60 Ft of 1.62
The car is still undergoing tuning and we hope to pull of a better time tomorrow with some minor tweaks and a bit more boost. We believe that we could achieve low 9s once we sort out the minor misfire/hesitation in 3rd gear.

Sick as in the head. Yes. This car is not quiet right. It was a stunt car built for the Fast and Furious 4.
Yes its VW powered. It is an R34 body, put onto a VW chassis. It ran and drove ok, a little strange. Movies do some odd things, this is one of those odd things.

It’s a blue black edition. Would that make it a bruise edition? MC posted a couple pics from the Montreal Auto show, A North American Deep Blue Pearl R35 GT-R with Black edition(also SpecV wheels) and interior. Although I had some reservations on the red/black interior trim with the blue exterior, I think it is growing on me. Head over to the forums for all the pictures.
