Care To Buy The Most Annoying Custom Nissan GT-R In The World?

Care To Buy The Most Annoying Custom Nissan GT-R In The World?

If you’re into flashy cars, this GT-R is definitely for you…if you have the money, that is.

The Nissan GT-R is far from subtle, and that’s honestly its mission. It’s meant to be fast and look good doing it. It excels well at this, but what if someone took things a bit further? Well, do you recognize the car we have here? This is the same fully engraved, gold-plated Nissan GT-R that was shown off at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon and, while it might seem weird to talk about a car that has had its 15 minutes of fame, this puppy just hit the market, and it could be yours if you really want it. Oh, by the way, you’ll also need around $1.6 million AED or around $435,600, so you might want to consult your better half first, just saying.

The Difference Between $20,000 and $50,000 Custom Nissan 350Zs Will Surprise You

The Difference Between $20,000 and $50,000 Custom Nissan 350Zs Will Surprise You

Is it really worth it to dump the equivalent of a BMW 430i Coupe into your 350Z? Here’s the answer

The Nissan 350Z is still one of the most popular choices for people out there looking to go all out on a project car. Thanks to a rather solid base, at least for its time, and one that’s easy to modify in, effectively, all areas, the 350Z has been the star of countless tuning shows for over 15 years already and people are still customizing, racing, drifting, and showing the Z33 off to this day.

In this context, it’s worth asking one of the toughest questions out there: is spending a lot of money on your ride really worth it or can you genuinely shine on a budget?

Go Out And Buy The Off-Road NIssan GT-R Because A Pathfinder Is Boring

Go Out And Buy The Off-Road NIssan GT-R Because A Pathfinder Is Boring

The GT-R earned its nickname by squashing its rivals on the track but can it do the same on the trails?

The Nissan GT-R is one of the few constants in the landscape of modern supercars. Having been in production for a whopping 13 years, you’d be forgiven if you no longer give a GT-R a second look when spotting one on the street but that’s not the case with this particular R35.

With 4.7 inches of extra ground clearance, huge off-road tires, fog lights, and a roof rack, this Godzilla is one of the craziest road-legal GT-Rs in Europe and one that really puts the car’s AWD system to the test. Yes, this is a GT-R that’s ready to go off the beaten path.

2018 Nissan Kicks Sound Machine

2018 Nissan Kicks Sound Machine

Prepare for your ears to bleed when you get close to this incredible creation

The Nissan Kicks will be in attendance at the 2018 SEMA Auto Show, except that it’s not actually the Kicks in the traditional sense. The SEMA-bound Kicks also goes by the name “Sound Machine” for reasons that are pretty obvious if you’ve seen what it looks like. The Kicks Sound Machine is a DJ booth on four wheels that Nissan created with the help of Hollywood-based Vehicle Effects. The vehicle made its debut at the 2018 BET Awards back in July, but those attending SEMA will get to see it for the first time, including the bazillion speakers it has at its disposal.

2018 Nissan Red Cross Ultimate Service Titan

2018 Nissan Red Cross Ultimate Service Titan

This one-off creation is here to save the day

Days after Land Rover showcased a one-off Discovery Sport that was developed specifically for the Austrian Red Cross, Nissan is doing the same for the American Red Cross with the introduction of the Ultimate Service Titan. As its name implies, the Ultimate Service Titan isn’t your typical Nissan Titan pickup. It’s a mobile command center that’s developed to respond to disasters and emergencies without breaking stride. The Nissan Ultimate Service Titan is the latest manifestation of a partnership between Nissan and the American Red Cross, one that, in the last five years alone, has raised $2.5 million in donations for the Red Cross. You can add the Nissan Ultimate Service Titan to that list now. The one-off emergency response vehicle debuted at the Miami Auto Show.

2018 Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept

2018 Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept

For heavy packing astronomers on the go

Based on the familiar Nissan Navara pickup truck, the Dark Sky concept is a mobile astronomy lab equipped with a state-of-the-art telescope mounted in a bespoke off-road trailer. Unveiled at the Hannover Motor Show in Germany, the Dark Sky concept was developed in the U.K. in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA).

The concept car showcases how a truck like the Navara could support the ESA’s intense efforts to map the stars by helping astronomers conduct follow-up observations from hard-to-reach locations. Of course, the Dark Sky concept won’t become a production model, but Nissan will donate the telescope "to pass on the spirit of exploration and adventure, and to inspire and educate future generations." In addition to the bespoke trailer, the Navara also boasts unique features and technology that’s not available on the production truck. Find out more in the review below.

2018 Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign

The ugly duckling turned into a beautiful swan

While it might be a world-class performance icon, the Nissan GT-R was never really considered “pretty.” However, that all changes with the introduction of the one-off GT-R50 prototype, a collaborative effort between Nissan and the legendary Italian design house, Italdesign. Built to commemorate the overlapping 50th anniversary of both the Skyline GT-R nameplate and the birth of Italdesign, the GT-R50 is rolling eye candy laid atop an engineering masterpiece, bringing form and function into stunning harmony.

Updated 08/27/2018: We added a new series of images taken during the car’s official presentation at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Nissan TITAN and TITAN XD Get a New Lift Kit From Icon Vehicle Dynamics

Nissan TITAN and TITAN XD Get a New Lift Kit From Icon Vehicle Dynamics

That’s three extra inches in ride height that can go a long way in enjoying the Titan’s off-road capabilities

The Nissan Titan is already one of the most capable pickups in the market, but even something as impressive as the Titan isn’t immune to added improvements. That’s why Nissan, in partnership with Icon Vehicle Dynamics, is now offering a way to lift the Titan’s suspension, increasing the Titan’s suspension by up to three inches, giving owners of the pickup more reason to enjoy the outdoors.

A Roofless Nissan Leaf has Made Its Debut, and It's Mesmerizingly Ugly

A Roofless Nissan Leaf has Made Its Debut, and It’s Mesmerizingly Ugly

It’s only a one-off, folks, so don’t worry; nobody will try to sell you one

Some cars look good as convertibles. Take most of Mercedes’ lineup, for example. Cabrio models go a long way in expanding an automaker’s lineup and appeasing those that prefer living life with unlimited headroom. There are cars that have no business losing their roof, and while I should be talking about the T-Roc, I’m actually talking about the Leaf. Nissan decided to throw together a one-off concept of the Leaf feature, you guessed it, absolutely no roof. It’s also void of rear doors, and we’re not even sure that the rear hatch is functional anymore either.

2016 Nissan GT-R by Alpha-N Performance

German tuner presents a different take on Godzilla

The Nissan GT-R is one of the cars in this world that can hold its own against any other performance vehicle. It may not have the power figures of other exotic vehicles, but it’s a load in itself to deal with on any road surface. Now imagine what the GT-R is capable of if you put it in the hands of an aftermarket tuner. Okay, that’s a rhetorical question because we all know what a tuned GT-R can do. What we’re here for is Alpha-N Performance, the German tuner that has been up to his head developing tuning programs this year, including its latest pride and joy for, you guessed it, the Nissan GT-R.

The program itself is relatively straight-forward, at least when you compare it to some of the previous works of Alpha-N Performance, including the BMW M2 and Mercedes-AMG GT R. In fact, if you line up those two kits with the one the German tuner prepared for the GT-R, the latter is tame by comparison.

Not that it’s going to matter because the GT-R is already a powerhouse in its own right. All Alpha-N Performance is doing here is massaging Godzilla’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine and giving it an extra bump in power and performance. Even better, the cost of availing this upgrade is cheap – it doesn’t even reach four figures – and owners of the GT-R R35 should have no problem giving their supercars an extra shot in power.

Given how some tuners have taken over-the-top approaches in building tuning kits for the GT-R, it’s a good sign that there’s another aftermarket company out there willing to take a different approach on Godzilla.

2016 Nissan Alpha G R35 GTR By AMS Performance

2016 Nissan Alpha G R35 GTR By AMS Performance

Tuning company is building Frankenstein wrapped in GT-R clothing

Gideon “Gidi” Chamdi is known in the U.S. drag racing scene as one of the most passionate owners of some of the most incredible drag-tuned supercars. If you’ve heard of AMS Performance, chances are you’re familiar with its staggering builds for the Nissan GT-R. Well, put one and one together and you can see where I’m going here, right?

See, Chamdi is the proud owner of just about every iteration of AMS Performance’s Alpha-tuned GT-Rs. He has the Alpha 10, Alpha 12, Alpha 16, and the Alpha 20. The last of those cars - the Alpha 20 - even became known as the fastest and most powerful Nissan GT-R in the world, a distinction it earned until it met an untimely demise when it crashed at an event back in August 2015.

With the Alpha 20 gone, Chamdi returned to AMS Performance, looking to replace his dearly departed GT-R with something that’s faster and more powerful than anything AMS Performance has built for the Japanese supercar. The result, or at least the partial result, is this monstrosity. It’s been labeled as the Alpha G and it promises to take the capabilities of the Alpha 20 and take it up to new heights.
