01 Varis
R35 GT-R '13 Version

Many Japanese tuners have been slow to produce new looks for the R35 GT-R, but Varis recently debuted an all-new '13 version that takes aggressive inspiration from the GT3 race car. Carbon louvers on 20mm wider front fenders highlight the kit, which also features original bumpers, side skirts, rear under spoiler, GT wing, hood, trunk, and more.

10 APR Performance
Scion FR-S Wide Front Bumper

The Scion FR-S comes from the factory with a very aerodynamic body. Its wide fenders and coupe design help minimize lift and drag, giving it the edge to win on track. Just one thing is missing: a wide front bumper. APR's wide front bumper will not only complement the factory wide-body styling but it will also keep the front tires tucked away for even further drag and lift reduction.

16 J's Racing
Honda S2000 Type GT Wide-body Aero

The J's Racing Wide-body Type GT kit has been created to transform the Honda S2000 into the ultimate body form, inspired by GT Racing cars and the Silhouette Formula (often called Super Silhouette) racing cars of Japan. The main objective of this aero package is to streamline airflow to minimize drag and increase downforce. The long-nose bumper, for example, reduces drag significantly, and at the same time, its under-panel generates negative pressure (downforce).
