But whereas just another exhaust/ECU/wheel change may be easy to overlook, the changes to this GT-R really are worth a mention. For a start the car no longer has power going to all four wheels.
Yes, this is the world’s first RWD Nissan GT-R and by binning the all-wheel drive system tuner Blitz has addressed one of the car’s biggest problems – its weight. Sadly we don’t have any figures but thanks to the removal of air conditioning and a number of other components this R35 should be considerably lighter.
So that’s it – one crazy conversion for this GT-R. Er, well actually there’s two. The standard car’s flappy paddle gearbox has been replaced with a Hollinger sequential ‘box, and a Nismo GT R34 LSD has been thrown in for good measure.
The engine is unchanged but there is a Blitz back box. Blitz has also fitted its own ZRR dampers at all four corners, along with a set of BRW09MAG forged magnesium wheels.
