Nissan GT-R by Cobra N+

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Hardly ever has a new vehicle gather this amount of attention a full year before its official market opening. The Nissan GT-R flies on the wings of a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 485 hp / 356.9 kW and fixed 4-wheel drive. The design of an expansive tuning program at COBRA N+, the division of Cobra Technology & Lifestyle that solely deals with the customization and tuning of Nissan vehicles, is operating at full speed.

Power can only be replaced with more power. The engineers of COBRA N+ are already laboring in designing an engine tuning for the turbocharged unit.

The initial tuning stage is forecasted to generate 550 hp / 404.8 kW, with a torque boost of up to 680 Nm. To attain this objective the engine electronics are reprogrammed, boost pressure is raised by 0.15 bar and the air intake is revised with sport air filters. Also in the design stage is a free-flow COBRA N+ stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with catalysts made from metal.

Propelled thus, the Nissan GT-R from COBRA N+ will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under than 3.5 seconds, going on to a ceiling speed of about 320 km/h.Intentions exist for a COBRA N+ RACE PERFORMANCE engine variant with 620 hp / 456.3 kW and a ceiling torque of an estimated 800 Nm. COBRA N+ also puts in further sporty attributes to suspension, rims and brakes of the new top-of-the-line version from the car manufacturer of Japan.

Three-piece, totally lightweight 21-inch COBRA N+ light-alloy rims are designed to fill out the space beneath the wheel curves perfectly. They'll also provide the space required for COBRA N+ eight-piston brake calipers and the front axle 405-mm brake discs. A COBRA N+ coil-over suspension offers the sports vehicle enhanced handling. It highlights a host of optional settings for both ride height and damper rates.

The tuning concept COBRA N+ for the GT-R also comes with an athletic designer suit. The front of the two-door vehicle gets extra attributes with a fresh COBRA N+ front apron with big air vents.

The seamless-enhancement portion also lowers lift on the front axle and enhances cooling-air supply for both radiators and front brakes. Rocker panels of the COBRA N+ guarantee maximized air flow between front and rear wheel curves. The rear is uprated with a fresh COBRA N+ rear apron with incorporated diffuser, and a bigger COBRA N+ rear airfoil. The COBRA N+ Speed and Stripes decal kit emphasize the sportscar's striking lines.

For individualizing the inside design COBRA N+ provides two different alternatives. Owners of Nissan GT-R can select from a luxurious COBRA N+ interior with particularly sewn upholstery for seats and doors, made from a first-rate mixture of leather and Alcantara, and a COBRA N+ racing cabin with extremely light carbon-fiber racing seats, six-point seatbelts and roll cage.The tuning program COBRA N+ for the Nissan GT-R will be offered for the vehicle's European market opening in the spring of next year.
