Hold on tight folks – Godzilla has had an upgrade! And this modified monster could be yours next week!
The Nissan GT-R is always a hugely popular car in the BOTB Dream Car Competition, but we couldn’t ignore the fact that a huge amount of GT-R owners (in the region of 60%) tune their cars with aftermarket parts. But where to go to get "our" tuned GT-R? It could only be one place really – the company that has been tuning GT-Rs longer than anyone else with a reputation for nothing but the highest quality and workmanship – Litchfield Motors.
There are plenty of different upgrade packages they do, up to an eye-watering 755bhp (!!!) but we’ve added something very special – their brand new take on the GT-R Track Edition by Nismo.
This latest version takes the already fantastic base car and adds Nismo body bonding which makes the body far more rigid, some lightweight 20” forged RAYS alloy wheels and a carbon fibre rear spoiler. To this new track spec, Litchfield add their special Bilstein Damptronic dampers which, along with a 10mm increased track, work with the stiffer body to give the best control you can have from a GT-R.
Visually they also add their LM20 carbon splitter and carbon rear diffuser insert. They also tweak the suspension geometry and add their own anti-roll bars so this GT-R holds the road (and track) like nothing before it. Oh, and of course there is the engine work which results in 631bhp and 813Nm of torque – staggering numbers.
This all comes together to give you a ridiculously fast (hitting 62mph in 2.8 seconds) GT-R that handles and flows down the road like little else.
And as if all that wasn’t enough, all the work has a 3-year warranty so no worries about the reliability of tuned cars.
We think this is one of the most exciting cars we’ve ever featured, so go get some tickets while you can!
NOTE: Litchfield prefers their engine tuning to be done on engines that have been run-in, so the Track Edition will be based on a nearly-new, low mileage GT-R that BOTB will work with the winner and Litchfield to source to their desired spec.
