2008 SEMA Preview: Nissan GT-R by Branew

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2008

Improvements for the Nissan GT-R are well-known to be hard to accomplish, partly because the vehicle is already at the top of its performance level, and also because Nissan decided to lock down the computer of the car in various ways. The appearance face of modification has still some room for improvement, however, and Branew will be attracting attention at the SEMA in a few short weeks.

The accessories include a front lip spoiler, side skirts, a rear diffuser, a new rear lip spoiler, a highly functional rear wing, attractive titanium 3-pipe exhaust tips that exit in the center, fresh stainless steel mufflers, and a wide variety of matte or "superchrome" three-piece forged wheels in 23-inch diameter.

The end product is a vehicle that appears inconspicuously different from the original, although the side profile and the side mirror are quite apparent created by the special exhaust treatment and the oversized wheels.

Performance remains untouched by Branew, partly due to the difficulty of the modifications in this arena. There are two packages of tuning tools available for the vehicle, one was announced by COBB tuning kit and the other one, a new one, was announced by ECUTek recently and will be available in December.

The kit will permit editing of the vehicle's ECU, including total reflashes and much more. Obviously, given the GT-R's very strict warranty policy, expect this move to cancel coverage of any systems affected, which could in hypothesis include the whole car.

As if warranties really trouble those who do hardcore car modifications. A couple other extremely-looking GT-Rs have also been lately unveiled together with a custom Toyo Tires car and the Zele custom carbon-fiber kit vehicle dazzling in its electric orange paint finish.
