If you are a fan of the Indy Pro Series then a name like Tony Kanaan more than rings a bell. For those of you who don’t know the name, here’s a little 411: Kanaan is a Brazilian race car driver who won the 2004 Indy Racing League IndyCar Series championship driving Andretti Green Racing’s 7-Eleven sponsored car. A champ like this deserves nothing less than to drive a vehicle that matches his status, so CEC Wheels in Miami took on the job of transforming an already stunning Nissan GT-R into a vehicle fit for a champion.

Taking the smooth lines of the GT-R to the next level is a new front spoiler, a new grille, an engine cover, hood scoops, mirror covers, side skirts, trunk, rear diffuser, and a rear wing all made in carbon fiber. With a name like CEC Wheels, a new set of Yokohama AVS M7 forged wheels painted in gloss black were a must in the makeover. The interior was also spiffed up with some black leather, Recaro CS seats, a Password JDM carbon rear speaker shelf, a Password JDM carbon rear seat delete, and a K40 Radar with Jammers.

On the mechanical side, CEC went to work by adding a coilover suspension, a big 405mm rotor kit, stainless brake lines, racing brake pads, and a new titanium exhaust system.

Hit the jump to see the full list of additions made to Tony Kanaan’s new Nissan GT-R.

I’m so impressed with the exclusivity of its interior! It also looks classy on that. I find it either too aggressive on its air intake. I just only hope that it would as well have a powerful engine.

It looks so simple on its platform, but I noticed that it is very attractive on that even the white body paint of it is only appropriate for this vehicle. However, I’m just a little curious on its engine.

I’m impressed with the angst of this mine’s GT-R, well its not like the other sports car that really had a fabulous and elegant designed but for me, the designed that it had is already stunning and very appealing.

It seems that there are a lot of specs included in the tuning package. However, its kind of disappointing that they haven’t upgrade the performance of the engine.

I would say that the modified version of this car is quite impressive though they haven’t included the engine upgrade option for this car.

hmm. Yeah, this would be a pointless aftermarket production! I think they just waste their effort in here..I was expecting for the upgrade in the engine rather on the exterior.

For a racing car, I don’t think that the exterior is important. Well, its the speed that really matters here. Actually, I was so impressed with the performance of this car..really unbelievable!

If I do have a lot of money I’m not hesitating to buy this type of model, I wouldn’t mind the high value on it. It is very impressive worth buying for.

  (702) posted on 05.4.2011

Well, It is absolutely expensive car Brazilian race car model. However, its quite worth buying for.

I think this car is made to be popularized by its standard and function. It will absolutely an over looking car prospect for a value customer.

Yeah, you’re probably be right on that one. And even if it is not on sale, customers would probably be amazed to by the package that they would be requesting CEC to sell it.

  (600) posted on 04.18.2011

It seems to be that there is a large possibility for them to actually sell the package to potential customers. One clue to this is the fact that they made the specs on this one public.

  (708) posted on 04.15.2011

They didn’t say if Kanaan himself did commission the work. In case he didn’t, then there is a large possibility that this one would indeed be up for sale, though it would be rather pricey.

I don’t know for sure if this is going to be just a one off or if they will release this as a legitimate tuning package. But one thing I am sure about is that if they release this one, it is going to be quite expensive.

  (449) posted on 04.14.2011

Are they releasing the whole package for those who want to set up their GT-R’s like this? It would really be a good idea to take one of these to the road.

  (798) posted on 04.14.2011

Same here, I think that the engine as it is is already a good one. Though I must admit that I also like the improvements that they have done for the engines.

  (1023) posted on 04.13.2011

Well, I don’t think that its necessary to upgrade the performance of the GTR since it comes up with a powerful one! Good luck Dude!

  (780) posted on 04.13.2011

It seems that CEC made some modification on the aerodynamic package only. I just wonder if the team is planning to make a upgrade for the engine.

  (571) posted on 04.13.2011

Well, Kanaan would certainly be happy to see this ride. And I think it would be a good idea to see him drive this one, that would really be a treat for us.

Well, this one would really suit Kanaan. The way they remodeled the GT-R really fits the personality of the driver, and the modifications done in the performance will suit his driving skills.
