iM Random Snaps: Power and Beauty – 2010 Nissan GT-R
The GT-R has been Nissan’s flagship performance car since it’s debut in 1969. Because of Nissan’s commitment to performance, the GT-R badge has become a worldwide icon. As a car nut, I absolutely love the GT-Rs, old and new. That is why I jumped on the occasion to shoot a local car guy’s GT-R, not once but, twice.
I have a confession to make. The first time I shot *B-TOWN*’s GT-R, the pictures were horrendous for two reasons:
One, it was the first time I had seen an R35 GT-R in person. One that I could touch, in a non-perverted way of course, sit in, and truly appreciate for it’s raw beauty.
Two, I sucked at photography. There is no other way to put it. In any case, the second time shooting this wondrous GT-R was magnificent. The pictures turned out great, and *B-TOWN* had done a few modifications to this already perfect “GodZilla”.
His mods included:
- Complete Car 3M Wrap
- 3M Headlight Rock Guard and Darkening
- 5% All Around Tint
- Titek Gold Lug Nuts (Short, Open Ended)
- COBB GT-R SF Dual Intake System
- Harman Motive Catless Downpipes
- Harman Motive Catless Non-resonated Midpipe
- Meisterschaft SUS Catback GT Dual Side
- COBB Access Port w/TCM + Custom Tune
Stock from the factory, the 2010 GT-R produced 485HP/434 lb.ft of Torque. His car, now has 551 HP / 561 lb.ft of Torque @ 18 PSI of boost. Yeah, it’s nuts. And the sound of the COBB/Harman exhaust is one a kind. At idle, it’s quiet and tamed. But, when all hell breaks loose, you can hear the four horsemen of the apocalypse riding past the gates of hell! No joke.
Now, for the pictures!
Thanks for reading everyone. You stay classy………..Planet Earth!
