AVUS PERFORMANCE-Nissan GTR - Batmobil Reloaded

Japanese carmaker Nissan developed a new model to compete against the Porsche Turbo, the GT-R. The model had its official public display at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007. The carmaker decided to build it as a limited edition and so, only 480 units of the sports-car will be produced for the European customers. For tuning company AVUS PERFORMANCE, used the Nissan GT-R Black Edition as base for a very ambitious project. The engineers offered a new modified ECU and a special new exhaust pipe to help the GT-R reach an impressive output of 580 BHP and 700 Nm of torque. All the power is being sent to the road through 20-inch wheels. At a close look we can see the individually painted parts like the rear diffuser, air vents, tinted windows, the front bumper and a lot more.

The Nissan GT-R build as a sportscoupe and direct opponent of the Porsche Turbo was revealed at the Tokio Motor Show in 2007. As a direct successor of the Skyline GT-R R34 the bar has been laid high already. With only 480 examples for Europe the GT-R is one of those rare sports-cars.

For AVUS PERFORMANCE a Nissan GT-R Black Edition was the basis for a very ambitious project. Besides optical changes they also put the emphasis on more power. A new modified ECU and a special new exhaust pipe (2 cats and the middle silencer have been removed) help the GT-R up to an impressive 580bhp and 700 Nm of torque (stock 485bhp and 588Nm).

Visually you can only imagine the power the GT-R has. The matt black, the lowering via coilovers (stock adjustments for the dampers will be kept) and the black painted 20" wheels combined with wheel spacers sum up the package. Individually painted parts like the front bumper, the rear diffusor, air vents, tinted windows can be seen when taking a close look.
