Paying tribute to Godzilla

Oct 22, 2014

Before you is a list of must-see R35 Nissan GT-R builds we've found impossible to forget. Enjoy!

There couldn't be a better collaboration with legendary tuner Trust/GReddy and aero specialist BenSopra. 4.3-liter stroker, bigger turbos and massive fenders were in order; the result is this wild Super GT-style R35 GT-R pushing 1,206hp built to take on Fuji Speedway.

Sumo Power
The Sumo Power R35 GT-R had only one goal and that was to go around a track as quickly as possible. Due to FIA GT1 regulations, Sumo Power performed something uncommon by taking out the Nissan's turbochargers, AWD system and paddle shifters. But before you get your panties in a bunch, wait till you hear what they replaced it with, a 5.5-liter naturally aspirated VKB6DE complete with NISMO internals, a NISMO RWD drivetrain conversion and a Ricardo six-speed sequential gearbox. Doesn't sound so bad, right?

Tommy Kaira
Imagine one day you got a phone call by a millionaire asking you to build a GT-R with a baller budget. Well, SP Engineering got that call, except they were told to build two Nissan GT-Rs and they both had to be around 1,000whp. We loved this gold one rocking the pricey Tommy Kaira aero sprayed with Top Secret paint. Rough estimate of this GT-R was about $250,000. MBN.

What was only supposed to be a weekend warrior, this R35 soon became the HKS Fuji Speedway demo car. Together, HKS and owner Susumi Aoki brought this car to reach 1,001hp. And with NOB Taniguchi behind the wheel, the GT-R managed an extremely fast 1:44:051 at Fuji Speedway.

AMS Performance
AMS is known for its record-setting turbo builds. The team broke into the 7-second quarter-mile club with its Alpha Omega GT-R at 186.14 mph—the current GT-R record. It's also done a standing mile at 233mph and standing half-mile at 214.04mph. AMS president Martin Musial has stated the car is rated at about 1800whp. Enough said!
