Nissan GT-R aka star from Elysium visits SR Auto Group, gets PUR 2WO wheels

Article by Christian A., on June 30, 2014

Elysium made quite a buzz when it was released into cinemas last year, but many of auto enthusiasts remember the sinister Nissan GT-R that helped Matt Damon complete his mission. The same car from the movie arrived to SR Auto Group’s showroom for a limited time showing its battle scars but also its wheels.

SR Auto Group upgraded the Nissan GT-R used in Elysium with a new set of multi-spoke PUR 2WO wheels and we must admit that the design is even more impressive.

Still, we don’t know how many of you folks would drive such a dusty car, as we prefer the brand new, shiny Nissan GT-R that comes with a $101,770 price tag in the United States and features the VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 that delivers 454 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque.

If this isn’t enough for you, Nissan offers the GT-R Nismo, which costs $149,990. This model uses the same engine, delivering 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque.

For 2014, the dramatic styling of the Nissan GT-R remains basically the same. Every element of the design has been created to optimize the driving experience offered by the vehicle as well as to indicate its performance level at par with supercars.

The hybrid body construction of the Nissan GT-R combines steel, carbon fiber as well as die-cast aluminum – all helping deliver a unique level of lightness, stiffness and precision. Thanks to its low coefficient of drag value of 0.26 Cd, the new GT-R is able to generate high levels of front and rear downforce.

Its front fenders convey both power and stability, while the "aero-blades" on the edges deliver optimal levels of airflow around the tires and along the body. On the other hand, the fenders' trailing edges also feature vents that help in delivering front downforce while optimizing airflow along the sides.

On the front, the new GT-R is marked with a large bulge on the bonnet and larger central air intake – both offering cooling functionality while giving the car a sophisticated style. The GT-R comes with "super wide beam" headlamps with three extra sub-reflectors -- compared to conventional lights – that allow for a wider illumination spread.

Meanwhile, the sloping "aero blade canopy" roofline and a curved C-pillar "sword edge” of the new 2014 car R don’t just give the car its GT-R identity while directing airflow around the rear end. As expected, the rear end of the GT-R is defined by its signature four-ring taillights, while airflow management on both above and below the body is made possible by the functional rear carbon fiber underbody diffuser, rear spoiler and rear venting as well as large, integrated quad exhaust tips.
