Zele R35 GT-R based on the Nissan GT-R
We’re not quite sure if its a good idea to mess with the Nissan GT-R. Nissan spent about seven years getting the car right, so there should be little or no room for improvement. But that’s not stopping tuners from showing off plenty of versions of the car at Tokyo Auto Salon this week. When it comes to Japan’s equivalent to the SEMA show, Godzilla is the crown jewel for any customizer trying to show off its skills.
One of the more complete designs is the aptly named Zele R35 GT-R Complete Edition. The car starts with the Zele body kit that includes trademark orange paint and and an aero kit consists of carbon fiber bumpers, lip spoiler, side skirts, rear wing, modified air ducts, grill, side mirrors and roof.
The performance upgrades for the GT-R Complete Edition include an ECU reprograming that increases the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 from 485 hp to a reported 550 hp. It also comes with a height adaptable suspension conversion kit and upgraded brake pads. Zele will begin taking orders for the R35 GT-R Complete Edition starting 9th January, but it will max out at eight complete cars (costing about a whopping $206,000 each). Anyone else will have to order the individually parts from Zele’s catalog.
While this is an attractive package, is Zele just messing with perfection?
