Lol, I was born into Nissan and literally been a Nismo freak since I was a tiny lad, so you can see me say something about how I'm GTR 500%. Anyways, I love this... 1000hp R8! Sex on wheels with power now! And a proper manny gear box!

UGR told me on a forum that there are already companies doing good with the GTR no need to compete.

Actually its gonna be 350k. GT go for 250k. But id still take this over a lot of cars under 500k
Jordan Jackson Oct 07, 2012
At this point, I don't think the GTR counts as a sleeper anymore, lol
Nick Schnee Oct 07, 2012
Hang on... 1250hp for barely 250-300K?! That's a steal.

I like the stock wheels better.

Should have made the wheels and side scoops the same shade of black instead of carbon fiber and black

@carlton, dosnt matter if its the same engine, it's a different car with different proportion, so would still be alot of fabrication to make it fit

This is absolutly stunning
Lyomp Oct 07, 2012
That is ridiculous
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Oct 07, 2012
Eh its the same v10 engine anyways. But I think R8 weighs more so....

And don't quote me on this but I do believe ugr uses air to liquid intercoolers also
William Downs Oct 08, 2012
@alex, u do know this entire system is ceramic coated and the 2 giant boxes are the intercoolers, as much as u think it is, heat ain't to big of a problem for this set up
Alex Renaud Oct 08, 2012
How nice is that? Oh, my. The very hot air that rises off the exhaust must soak into the colder intake air - the 2 systems are that close together.

That's wicked...

Dillon Magee Oct 07, 2012
