Carbon fiber is an amazing material, in fact it so great that back when the lightweight space age composite was becoming more and more popular with the tuning scene both Boeing and Airbus had to dream up a few carbon fiber airplanes and hog all the beautiful wavy black stuff. Thankfully carbon fiber is no longer in such short supply and the Japanese Domestic Market specialists at Password JDM have just come out with a new pair of wide body front fenders for the Nissan GT-R made out of woven and cured carbon.

Nissan GT-R gets dry Carbon Fiber wide front fenders

The units maintain the same lines as the factory piece except they extend the body almost an inch and a half on either side and are meant to accommodate up to a 20×11 inch wheel wrapped in sticky Toyo R888 tires sized 315/30/20. Now the Toyo is an excellent tire, and they were chosen because this is the widest tire available for the rear wheels of a stock GT-R. With over a foot wide contact patch on either of the car’s front corners the GT-R will be able to pull some tremendous G’s diving deep into the corners. So not only will your GT-R stand out from the crowd, and should you dare to paint the bare carbon skin and source an additional set of 10.5 inch rims from another GT-R onlookers would be hard pressed to point out exactly what it is about the slightly modified GT-R that makes it look a bit more aggressive than ordinary Godzillas. Password JDM is asking a cool $3,899.99 for the carbon fiber wide body front fenders for the Nissan GT-R and will be at SEMA in a few weeks with further details.
