Romeo Ferraris is the kind of aftermarket tuner that you really don’t want to mess with. Instead of spending their hours giving their programs styling makeovers, the Italian tuner prefers to spend their time building performance upgrades. No flash here, fellas; just straight up, hardcore aftermarket performance improvements. Their latest program is for a car that really needs no introduction. Heck, it even has arguably the coolest nickname in the entire industry - "Godzilla," aka the Nissan GT-R .
Based on the 2010 and 2011 models of the Japanese super car, Romeo Ferraris prepared a two-stage performance kit for the almighty GT-R. The first stage of this impressive performance upgrade involves the removal of the car’s standard air filter and replacing with a new programmable module with three pre-set power settings - Normal, Sport and Race - that owners can set from their car’s steering wheel. What this does is improve the GT-R’s performance numbers from its 3.8-liter V6 engine from 485 horsepower to 525 horsepower for the 2010 model and from 530 horsepower to 576 horsepower for the 2011 model.
From there, Romeo Ferraris also came up with a Step 2 program, which now involves a new high-performance exhaust, a remapped ECU unit, and the aforementioned new air filter, rounding out an output that’s further increased to 570 horsepower for the 2010 model and 622 horsepower for the 2011 model.
Careful not to leave out any aero enhancements on the Japanese super car, the Italian tuner also provides aesthetic and aerodynamic upgrades, including carbon fiber aero components, a new set of alloy wheels, and a custom bespoke interior.
