Tokyo AutoSalon 2010: Midori, Hashimoto, Power Enterprise and Others

February 5th, 2010

Time for a combined post wrapping up the rest of my strictly GT-R related photos from Friday morning the first day of TAS2010. Take a peek as we browse the halls to snap up some interesting tidbits.

First up is Midori Seibi Center’s nice looking GT-R with their new Silent Power NR exhaust fitted up. They also had some extremely hot Rays Volk G2 wheels in the formula silver fitted outside some tasty Alcon rotors.

Speaking of Alcon, we took a look up close at their caliper upgrades for Nissan GT-R and they look damn serious. Alcon make brakes for everything from street cars to F1 cars and lots inbetween. Next to the GT-R brakes was a caliper from a SuperGT car. It was crazy lightweight due to it’s construction but not really in the same league as the F1 caliper next to that. Constructed from goldGold anodized, it was lighter again.

On the topic of motorsports, over at the Nissan booth they had parked the 2008 SuperGT Championship winning GT500 class Nismo GT-R for a pitwork demo. They performed a tire change while various parts of the car were pulled off so that the presenter could lift them up in front of everyone. I guess those tires don’t weigh much after all.

Power Enterprise had their Four Charger VR38 out on display as well, this year they’ve also got a turbo upgrade for GT-R available. It’s pretty impressive to see this engine in all it’s quad charged glory out of the car. So much work went into this, I really wonder about the results though as we’ve not heard much about it in the last 12 months since it’s debut.

The Hashimoto GT-R was there as well showing off it’s Lamborghini Style Doors. Not such a fan myself but was quite interested to check out their Schmieden front lip spoiler to see how functional it was. Unfortunately it’s all show as there are no brake ducts. Can’t fault the looks though it is attractive. The BBS LM-R wheels look good in the flesh except that the centers feel a little on the small side.

Finally, we end with a few non-R35 GT-Rs that stood out. First up is the ER34 sedan with an R35 look rear end. The rear bar has been moulded to allow for the R35 exhaust to be fitted and give a similar looking center grill section. Really though, if you’re going to modify your R34 GT-T you need to go all out like Final Konnexion did. This wide body kit for the ER34 coupe is wild and actually amazing in fit and finish. Check it out in the gallery below!

    I doubt thats High Metal Bronze G2s on the white Midori R35, looks more like Formula Silver.

    The picture of the gold colored Alcon calipers are not made of real gold, it is gold-anodized 7000 series Aluminum.

    Not only is gold 6 times as dense as aluminum (19.3 g/cc vs 2.8 g/cc), it is 1/5th the strength of aluminum (ultimate tensile strength – 117 mpa vs 520 mpa). Heavier, less strong, and more expensive… Yep, gold it is.

    Just trying to keep the facts straight :)

    @Kev
    I think you’re right!

    @M
    Thanks yeah there’s no way they can be any more than gold plated considering the weight.

    I’m sure they meant “Priced like it was constructed from gold”, LOL!

    As good as they look, they should really be made to be thermally reflective for the best performance, whether that means good looking or not.
