Over here in the good ol’ US of A, people are gearing up for one of the biggest auto shows of the year, the Detroit Auto Show, but spin the globe around and we’ll see that there is another show that deserves a good amount of attention as well. Over in Japan, the Tokyo Auto Salon will begin in less than a month to bring us some of the hottest tuned up machines we’ve seen, and the star of the show will obviously be the new Nissan GT-R.

Bringing the sports car to the forefront of the crowd is Axell Auto, a tuner who, until now, specializes in tuning Toyota van models. How they switched from vans to a beautiful sports car is beyond us, but we’ll take it anyway.

What they have done is prepared an extreme widebody kit for the new GT-R sports coupe. This kit will include new body panels, wider fenders, matching widebody Rear quarter panel fenders, a new rear bumper with a lot of vents and, of course, a new set of wheels. Currently the car is still under development, but these first couple of sketches leave us waiting in anticipation for the car’s Tokyo debut.

No engine updates have been announced as of yet, but maybe the tuner is waiting for the Tokyo Auto Show on January 14th to unleash that announcement. We can only hope.

I’m truly impressed with speed performance of the car and knowing that its a GTR. Plus, they are offering a aggressive look for this car.

Wow, I ’m glad to see a production for this vehicle! I’m really impressed with the speed performance of the car! For a racing prototype this vehicle look so aggressive.

Yes, I agree with you about that thing. As the matter of fact, GTR makes it engine much better because of continues criticism about it! Looking back at the history, this car is not that good but because of Nissan’s hard work, this is now the the best supercar!

I agree with you guys, GTR would be a great choice if you are looking for a extreme driving experience, great handling and better mileage! The performance of the car is simply amazing, I really don’t doubt why this sportscar is called the "baddest sportscar".

Well, I guess everyone is familiar with huge faces of the car when they are trying to build a wide body it really looks ridiculous! However, the extreme wide body kit of the GTR still makes it look so aggressive! i really love the whole details of this car.

Wow! its nice to hear that Nissan would come up with a new model. No doubt that GTR would be the global hottest tune up car! Let’s just wait and see for the future detailing and reviews for this one!

Good design inside and out and the total skills and performance is fantastic. Bringing the sports car to the forefront of the crowd is Axell Auto

wow..It such a great car,It has a wide body kit and a sensual design that makes the car desirable.

I love the GT-R just the way it is, but judging by what Axell Auto plan to do, their Nissan GT-R kit will turn this sensational, yet affordable super car into something that’s going to make Porsche owners even more jealous.

The new wide body kit is supposed to fit the 2012 Nissan GT-R rather well and improve on some already improved aerodynamics

dude, One of the most extreme elements from this aero packet is the front wing which uses XXL size, designed aggressively, combined with some air ventilations inside.

The medium wing also completes this car, and a complex diffuser that contains the four mufflers completes the back bumper. If you are interested in this car, just visit Tokyo Auto Salon 2011.

Wow Porsche will not be happy at all. It’s amazing how this relatively heavy machine goes so well.

The Japanese specification 2009 model GT-R recorded a blistering time of 7min 27.56secs, withering away at its previous best time by almost three seconds.

i guess not, GT-r has its own reputation and they will never do such thing as the porsche did, besides gt-rs performance is quite better than the porsche.

  (765) posted on 12.21.2010

to many Nissan GT-R variants ar pooping up are they going to do the same strategy as the Porsche Did?

nice that GT-R looks so aggressive with those front bumpers and lips. specially the side skirt and the height of the car means its handling is superb.
