Saw this particular one near my house!

Here's a walk around video of the car if you didnt see it before
Michael Davidson Nov 01, 2012
There is a such thing as an R35, just like an E46 or a C6. It's just the generation of that model.
Darian Vorlick Nov 01, 2012
@Scott. The GT-R is categorized as the GT-R R35 so the R35 nomenclature is not incorrect
Abraham Hernandez Nov 01, 2012
Ya no that GTR is just plan ugly don't change it into a wagon come on.. It maybe be fast but it's just too ugly
Lou Guerrero Nov 01, 2012
So is this a tt VQ or a VR? And yes the chassis code for the GT-R is CBA-R35.
Scott Harrington Nov 01, 2012
no such thing as a r35. it's a Nissan gtr. not to sound like an ass or anything.
Chris Penza Nov 01, 2012
If it was from the r35 yes, but we're talking about the g35 skyline
Matt Close Nov 01, 2012
Shouldn't if pack 480-530hp? Maybe they defined. I wonder if the teams and awD components were added as well
Chris Mallinson Nov 04, 2012
I saw this for sale on pistonheads befor the engine conversion, think it sold for about £13,000 Gbp
Brendan A Mcginnis Nov 02, 2012
Yea it'd be cooler if the whole front end was inspired by the GR-R, not actually have a GT-R front end
Anthony Smith Nov 02, 2012
U guys do know that they have made skyline wagons before just diff names

You know how stupid you would look in gt-r mini van? Yep; pretty stupid!
Bill Estep Jr Nov 02, 2012
The mustang ranger didn't workout that well I don't like this that much either
Cory Allen Nov 01, 2012
I think it looks cool!
Dillon Magee Nov 01, 2012
What the hell...
Tanton Stoneman Nov 01, 2012
The family GT-R!
Michael Riley Nov 01, 2012
I hate how they never give you an overall picture, they're always like so close and zoomed in you can't get a real idea of how the car actually looks. Step Back!
Alex Medvedev Nov 01, 2012
Never seen one like this crazy
Author Norman R. Colson Nov 01, 2012
This is a joke...right?
William Downs Nov 01, 2012
What can't read Sebastian, says it in the title and in the article
Sebastian Grey Nov 01, 2012
What the hell is this abomination?
John Serely Nov 01, 2012
It is kinda cool!

I how the they can't even fit the entire back end in the picture. The proportions are just awful
Alex Medvedev Nov 01, 2012
Lol I would mob that
Lou Guerrero Nov 01, 2012
I don't think it looks bad. Maybe they should match the rear fenders to the GTRs front fenders lol
Patrick Schalk Nov 01, 2012
I'm not saying Volvo is crappy. I'm saying this looks like a crappy ripoff of a Volvo. Like a poor design.
Daniel Eads Nov 01, 2012
Patrick, I resent that. I drive a Volvo wagon, and it is awesome.
DjVegar No Imitations Nov 01, 2012
Front looks bulky with the gtr arches then come to the back and it's a slim as Paris Hilton !!
Patrick Schalk Nov 01, 2012
God that is so hideous. Looks like a crappy Volvo.
Patrick Schalk Nov 01, 2012
These are the rear brakes
Mark McRearie Nov 01, 2012
Those brakes are useless. If you are going to add 400 HP, make sure you upgrade the brakes.
Ahklil Sadiqi Nov 01, 2012
Those brakes don't look like they'll be stopping anything
Peter Barron Dec 21, 2012
Where is it for sale?
Angel G. Ortega-Valentin Nov 02, 2012
This is a VQ25DET not a VR38DETT that's found in the GT-R guts here...

WTF is that glittery shit, take it off now or I'll have to castrate someone.
Quinn Conner Nov 01, 2012
"Yeah this will be cool, can you paint my plastic valve cover to match my boat?"
Dylan Bruder Nov 01, 2012
Well that looks uhh flamboyant
MissLaura Anne Nov 02, 2012
Way to be a mature adult David. And IMO.. They butchered it completely!
Miguel Jimenez Nov 02, 2012
@David nice stereotype. People like you are the reason why races can't get along.
David Hicks Nov 01, 2012
By "special" they must mean down-syndrome
David Guerrero Nov 01, 2012
Looks like a Mexican 'tuning job'. ( not offend any Mexican, but they do ruin and rice out cars)
Chase Huddles Nov 01, 2012
Oh wait, they put an R sticker on it! Totally ligit guys!
Chase Huddles Nov 01, 2012
So they go to all this trouble to make the interior authentic, yet they leave the shushbox (or CVT, I don't know how Nissan works world wide) shifter unchanged. Nice going.
Chris Penza Nov 01, 2012
That reupholstering is hideous
Nick Mangini Nov 01, 2012
G35 coupe interior...
Tucker Grimley Nov 01, 2012
Not a fan, I think if they were going to take a new gtr, gut it, and move it over to this they should have spent some money fixing the cheap interior. Other then that I think the outside looks descent!
Michael Beach Nov 01, 2012
Looks like a ricer got their hands on this
Patrick Schalk Nov 01, 2012
Hahah it really does. That's awful. This car is a fail.
Tobias Mersinger Nov 01, 2012
Wow, that looks cheap!
