One Nissan GT-R owner in the UK wasn’t satisfied with the factory looks, so they decided to spend $76,000 transforming it into the carbon fiber beast you see above. Yes, every body piece has been custom fabricated from premium carbon fiber, including the hood, doors, fenders, and bumpers. It’s not all just for aesthetics, as these panels combine for a weight saving of 310 pounds (140 kg). Read more for a video of it in-action.
If you’re unfamiliar with the GT-R, it’s an entirely new model, sharing little with its predecessor, the Skyline GT-R, save for its signature four round tail lights. Similar to later generations of the Skyline GT-R, this current model has all-wheel drive with a twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine, minus the four-wheel-steering HICAS system, and the former straight-6 RB26DETT engine, which has been replaced with a new V6 VR38DETT.
