Cool Whips: Tommy Kaira Nissan GT-R R35 Ebbrezza-R “Silver Wolf” Edition

January 20, 2010 Leave a comment

If you didn’t get a chance to make the 2010 Tokyo AutoSalon last weekend, then you missed out on some sick car modifications; especially for Nissan’s most recent GT-R R-35 model. Amongst all the big unveils; the highly anticipated Ebbrezza-R sports package from Japanese car tuning and manufacturing company, Tommy Kaira, was a sure winner. It stood out, as if it were an American-built car (e.g a Ford Explorer) was on main display.

Even though Tommy Kaira is know for working their mechanical and visual magic mainly on Skylines, Marchs, Imprezas, and Legacy models; you couldn’t tell from this sports package. They did a complete modification of the Nissan GT-R R35 model, which mostly consists of styling and performance upgrades.

To increase the GT-R’s aerodynamics, the guys over at Tommy Kaira equipped it with a wide-body carbon fiber kit; consisting of a front grille cover lip, a lip spoiler, under-body and rear diffusers, side ducts, side skirts, a rear wide fender and a rear wing. There are two front bumpers to choose from, constructed out of wet carbon material like the rear diffuser. I feel bad for the first dumbass to crash this bad boy in advance… i know the repair bill will be something outlandish!

To squeeze every last drop of performance out of this Japanese icon, Tommy Kaira added a high performance titanium exhaust, Endless MONO6 & 6R Caliper Kit with 390mm rotors, and Quantum Super Sports Suspension Kit. They also added AVS Model F15 Platinum wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires, to help with grip and handling. They let the engine untouched… but judging by the R-35’s sports head gasket and initial horsepower, that was arguably a justifiable decision.
