The GT-R may be capable of trouncing some of Italy's finest supercars, but that hasn't stopped this Italian tuner from taking the Nissan sportscar even further.
Italian tuning firm Romeo Ferraris has prepared two stages of performance kits for the Nissan GT-R, boosting power from the 3.8-liter V6 to 485 and 530 horsepower, respectively. Based on the GT-R from model year 2010 or 2011, Step 1 includes the replacement of the standard air filter and the installation of a new programmable module with three pre-set power settings (Normal, Sport and Race) that can be selected via controls on the car's steering wheel.
The result is an additional 45 horsepower and 66 pound-feet of torque for the 2010 MY and 46 hp and 60 lb-ft of torque for the 2011 model. Step 2 includes the filter and ECU module plus a high-performance exhaust system. The result is an additional 66 horses for the 485-hp model and 69 horses for the 530-hp version, while torque is increased by 96 lb-ft for both. Romeo Ferraris also offers exterior modification options for the GT-R including carbon-fiber aero components, alloys, and a bespoke interior finished with high-quality materials.
