The Nissan GT-R has been with us for more than 10 years now, and yet it still has plenty of life in it as numerous tuning companies haven’t stopped tinkering with the R35 as we know it. One such tuning company is Top Secret, which is selling its take on a 2011 Nissan GT-R Black Edition for ¥14,120,000 (around $122,284).
Top Secret is no stranger in the Japanese tuning scene. The iconic tuning company’s creations can be as wild as the V-12-powered Mk. 4 Toyota Supra that had a top speed of 220 mph, or something a bit more subtle as this GT-R we’re seeing here.
While this vehicle may look like the GT-R’s 2017 facelift on the outside, it actually started out life as a 2011 GT-R Black Edition, and this is evident from its interior. But before we get into that, let’s dive straight into its exterior modifications first.
The car has been painted in the GT-R T-Spec’s Millennium Jade paint, and it then receives a carbon fiber bodykit that consists of an extended front splitter, side skirts, and a new rear bumper with a more aggressive diffuser. Other exterior modifications include vents above the front wheel arches, OZ 35 GT-R SF Top Secret collaboration wheels, a new vented hood, a large carbon fiber rear wing, and titanium exhausts.
Top Secret also tinkered with the GT-R Black Edition’s interior, in which the tuning brand focused on giving it a "sense of functionality and luxury". There are plenty of new carbon fiber interior trims, along with Bride’s edirb series semi-bucket sport seats, and a new steering wheel that matches the blue stitching of the seats.
Top Secret says that the car’s handling and power have also been upgraded, though they did not specify what modifications were used. The tuning company only said that its suspension has only been slightly modified to maintain the GT-R’s everyday usability. Its powertrain, on the other hand, has been tuned to nearly 600 horsepower, but again, Top Secret did not disclose its exact figures, nor the kind of modifications they added.
For perspective, the standard GT-R Black Edition produces 530 horsepower and 448 pound-feet of torque, with power being sent through all four wheels via a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The car is being sold via Bingo (BH Auction) for ¥14,120,000 (around $122,284), and it already has clocked in 23,550 kilometers (14,633 miles). Yes, it’s been driven around, but it does have a host of modifications from what is arguably one of Japan’s most iconic tuning brands. Any takers?
