AMS Performance 1000hp GT-R Build: AMS Carbon Roof Premiers

April 18th, 2010

Work continues on Chuck’s GT-R and while we wait patiently for the gory details on the hardware they’ll be using to extract 1,000 ponies from his VR38 they’ve given us an update on some of the body lightening they plan on doing.

In this update you can see while there’s probably more than one way to skin a cat there’s only one way to skin a GT-R and it’s painful to watch. Off with Chuck’s roof for some proper roll cage installation and while it’s off what better time to design a new carbon roof skin replacement. So that’s what they guys at AMS Performance
did.

The AMS R35 GT-R Carbon Fiber Roof shaves weight from the highest point of your car without sacrificing structural integrity. By lowering the cars center of gravity, handling is improved along with shedding unnecessary weight. The AMS Carbon Fiber Roof weighs only 7 pounds and even allows you to retain the factory headliner! This incredible looking roof adds performance to your race car, style to your show car and is perfectly at home on your street car.

Features

  • 100% 2×2 weave carbon fiber
  • Saves 9lbs over the OEM roof
  • OEM fitment
  • Allows for factory headliner

Looks very slick and you won’t believe the price; AMS are saying this bad boy will sell for just $2,500 plus shipping. Very nice and bound to be popular. Check out their website for more info, linked below.
