2012 Nissan GT-R: NAGTROC Scoop First Unmasked Real World 2012 GT-R Photos

September 28th, 2010

Well while we were able to bring you the first unmasked prettied up brochure pics of the 2012 GT-R, we’ve been beaten to the punch of the first real world unmasked photos of the next GT-R. Especially important are the photos of the new Aurora Flare Blue Pearl color seen above and on NAGTROC.

NAGTROC also scooped photos of black, white and Dark Metal Grey GT-R’s out and about at the Nurburgring on a miserable looking afternoon. Toshio Suzuki evidently at the wheel.

Nissan have fully uncovered the car now including it’s LED running lights, hopefully the publication of our earlier photos had something to do with that…

Thanks to Matt MC for the heads up.

FIA GT1 2010: Nissan GT-Rs at Spa Francochamps

August 13th, 2010

It was not a great round for the Nissan GT-R teams Sumo Power GT and Swiss Racing Team but nontheless it was a great day for some stunning GT-R photos. Enjoy the photo gallery and full race report from Nissan below…

Heartbreak for Sumo Power GT at Spa

– FIA GT1 World Championship Round 5 Championship Race –
July 31st, Spa Francorchamps (Belgium)

The Sumo Power GT team came tantalisingly close to taking a second place finish in today’s FIA GT1 Championship race at Spa today but the No.23 Nissan GT-R retired just two minutes before the chequered flag fell. It would have been a huge achievement for Peter Dumbreck and Michael Krumm who had hauled themselves back from yesterday’s disappointing qualifying result.

Super Taikyu: NISMO GT-R RC Race Car Debut at Fuji Speedway

June 25th, 2010

Well today was the day that Nismo could finally let the finished R35 GT-R RC out of the bag so to speak in final demonstration livery. The GT-R RC is seen here as it is preparing for Sunday’s final race as it’s entered into the Super Taikyu round 4 as an ST-1 class competitor.

The car you see here is what customers will be able to buy from Nismo in the near future in a similar vein to the Fairlady Z NISMO 380RS-C. Nismo hopes to show off the GT-R’s pace this weekend in order to attract buyers and they certainly have the right drivers for it. Hopefully all goes well for the guys and we’ll bring the results as we get them.

For now enjoy this massive photo gallery of the all new Nismo GT-R RC…

Happy Australia Day GT-R Lovers

January 26th, 2010

Australia Day, celebrated the 26th of January every year is the best day of the year to get out in the back yard with a case of beer and fire up the BBQ in the stinking summer heat. It got up to about 40 something Celsius today but fortunately it’s also a public holiday so we don’t need to go to work.

Anyways, lets celebrate Australia Day with some fine pics of a Aussie GT-R! One of the finest in the country, we’re going to be looking out for this car in some upcoming tarmac rallys.

The center is anodized Flat Charcoal and are 21×10 in the front and 21×11 in the rear.

Hit up the NAGTROC thread to see loads more photos from this shoot…

Happy New Year from GTRBlog.com

January 1st, 2010

Happy new year guys, we’re going to take a day off for recovery after some serious eating and drinking and fireworks watching for 2010. The view above is pretty much what I was watching as the clock ticked over to 12:00 1st January 2010 in Sydney Australia.

As a small token of appreciation I gathered up a few photos I’ve taken in 2009 and uploaded some highres ones for desktops or what have you.

Thanks for supporting us over the last 12 months and keep checking back for much more GT-R news in the years to come!

Stroll Down Deviant Art Lane – GT-R Art

July 5th, 2009

NISSAN_GTR_R_by_agespoom

I’m a frequent reader of many other blogs and probably have 200 RSS feeds in my reader so when I spotted this post on The Real JDM it ended up with me browsing Deviant Art for other gems. I’ve included a few I liked in this gallery below but hit up Deviant Art for more and spend a few hours browsing the random car images you might find.

These images are owned and copyright by the artists. Check with them at the links after the jump if you want to use their images in any way.

Nissan Tochigi Plant – Godzilla Ground Zero: GTRBlog Photo Gallery

April 14th, 2009

tochigi-nagtroc-gtrblog-147

The Nissan Tochigi Plant is an amazing place to visit, sprawling over a vast physical area you need to take a bus (or a “plant test GT-R”) to make your way around it. That’s exactly what we did in January this year with NAGTROC thanks to Nissan Japan and our good friend and GTR Owners Club Japan President Shin Inoue. If you’re interested in the entire writeup on the experience you can checkout our previous post with the link to the official NAGTROC magazine style writeup. If you’re more of a visual person, well you can enjoy some of the photos I took at the plant.

In terms of what we could and could not photograph, we were quite restricted. Photography within the plant structures was forbidden due to certain confidential things we may or may not have seen. Outside again we were also fairly restricted. Only I was allowed to bring my trusty Nikon D300 and I tried to capture what I could but there was a LOT going on. Everyone else was made to leave their cameras behind.

Enjoy what we have here and let us know in the comments if you want any details on what exactly is going on in any of these. Click the giant “Read More” link below for the rest of the photos…
