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.

Being that this year marks th 30th anniversary of Gundam animation, Tokyo’s metropolitan gov. collaborated with some private companies to construct a real scale Gundam Robot. The Robot was constructed in Odaiba, Tokyo. It is rumored to welcome the Olympic games to Tokyo. Its height is 18m (about 59 feet) and is set to be deconstructed at the end of the summer. So if any of you are planning a trip to Tokyo this summer, i suggest you go and check this piece of art out. Stuff like this doesn’t come by all the time.
