2012 Tokyo Auto Salon Preview: Bensopra Nissan R35 GT-R

Article by Christian A., on October 15, 2011

Here at 4WheelsNews we are not huge fans of tuning but when something special is created our readers need to know! As a result, we bring you today the Bensopra R35 GT-R based of course on the Nissan GT-R sports car. As you can see from the photos the car is a real piece of art and now the front bumper and front hood are integrated in one carbon fiber piece, just like the Dodge Viper.

The side front fenders are also integrated in the front bumper and the hood, while the exhaust system is now shorter and mounted behind the front wheels, just like the McLaren Mercedes SLR.

Furthermore, the vehicle features new side sills as well as enlarged rear fenders, while the rear of the car was heavily modified.

The exhaust system has been replaced with a new rear air diffuser, while the rear trunk spoiler is now replaced by a huge rear spoiler mounted on the rear bumper.

Of yeah, and the 3.8-liter DOHC V6 engine, which delivers 530 hp and 612 Nm of torque from 3,200 to 6,200 rpm in the standard model has been improved and develops an impressive 1,000 hp.

Regarding the debut of the car, this will be officially made at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon in January!

In October 2007, the Tokyo Motorshow turned the spotlight to the much-anticipated Nissan GT-R 2011 model. Let’s find out what the new Nissan has to offer.

From the look outside, the new Nissan GT-R delivers more strength and stability. There’s even the red painted hood cover to give emphasis to the car’s exceptional engine prowess.

Along with its striking new appearance, the GT-R also features better aerodynamics more than anything else. Nissan also came up with a sporty designed interior to complete the new GT-R’s knockout sport profile.

Interestingly, Nissan also adapted some new technologies to achieve cleaner emissions. They have combined high-capacity microprocessors, engine control modules and ultra-low precious metal catalyst to come up with this.

By all means, the new Nissan GT-R’s engine output has considerably improved. The supercar now boasts of 390kW (530PS) over 6,400rpm. Meanwhile, the maximum torque is 612Nm based on 3,200-6,000rpm.

Meanwhile, the improved fuel consumption is achieved due to the revised exhaust system, significantly larger inlet pipe openings, better air mixture ratio and valve timing as well as the increased pressure on the turbocharger.

Nissan GT-R’s “R” mode function meanwhile can maximise the use of the Standing Start Performance. The driver can activate this by selecting the “R” mode when braking while in gear at the same time. Then, he only needs to apply more throttles before releasing the brake.

At this point, the system monitors the oil temperature to maintain reliability and avoid overheating. For the time being, the new 2-wheel drive mode then shifts temporarily to sport mode in order to gain control during tight turns (particularly when driving below 6mph).

Other than the customary SNOW mode function, Nissan also applied the new SAVE mode driving system on the GT-R. The SAVE mode enhances the driving torque and adapts the gearshift timing for low fuel consumption (even while driving along the speedway). By now, we can clearly see why the supercar was tagged under the “world’s best multi-performance and pleasure of responsive driving” theme.
