Top Secret Super GT-R: New Aero Launched for R35

September 25th, 2010

Not one to be outdone by Nissan themselves, Top Secret has launched their own updated fascia for the Nissan GT-R. You may be forgiven for at first thinking that this takes a leaf out of the 2012 GT-R’s book because of the double canard design. This look is all original Top Secret though and is reminiscent of the legendary Twin Turbo V12 Supra aero.

Also shared with the Supra design theme is the nose extension factor. If you take a second look you’ll see that this is no rehash of the OEM bumper but it has been extended forward by 50mm.

Finished here in the newest iteration of Top Secret Gold, more details of pricing, construction and availability should be out soon…

July 28th, 2010

Top Secret have leaked a few images of their upcoming newest product. A carbon fibre hood for the R35 GT-R. As you can see the hood features some large vents to improve engine bay cooling in much the same way as the GT1/GT1 style hoods do.

Looking forward to getting more details on this one soon…

TopSecret Release Carbon Bumper Air Intake Ducts for Nissan GT-R

July 6th, 2010

Top Secret have launched a new product this week designed to improve cooling airflow to the intercooler / radiator. The GT-R’s front end, while aerodynamic, does leave something to be desired in the use of the surface area to great cooling effect. Understandably so too since Nissan had to fit a bumper reinforcement in there somewhere.

The aftermarket doesn’t need to be concerned with bumper reinforcement however so with some modification this bumper duct will direct air straight onto your cooling systems.

Priced at 65,100 yen for the half carbon version or 79,800 for the full carbon version, you can get in touch with your local Top Secret distributor for more info…

Top Secret Launch Turbo Upgrades and More for the Nissan GT-R

May 16th, 2010

Just launched are a batch of new parts out of Japanese tuning house Top Secret including the latest high flow ball bearing turbo upgrade.

Let’s check out the turbos first. The Top Secret turbo upgrades are said to be good for around 600hp while maintaining streetability and standard spool characteristics by using ball bearing cartridges. The standard housings are utilized and honed out to fit the larger internals. You can see a comparison of before and after below and a dyno chart from Top Secret in the photo gallery below.

Up next is the Top Secret Super Suction Kit which replaces the OEM compressor side cast piping with a larger 56mm internal diameter stainless versions. It works well with the Super Induction Kit, sold separately, but works with the stock intake system just as well.

Then we have the Top Secret Oil Catch Can, a custom unit with a 2 litre capacity. It’s internally baffled, is 180x180x65mm in size and is fitted with a level gauge.

Lastly we have a Top Secret Bonnet Damper Kit, something simple that many thought Nissan should have included with the GT-R to begin with. These gas struts make the hood support obsolete and are a great idea for those who like to work on the car themselves. They’re even covered in a cf-look wrap.

For more info and pricing, head on over to the official Top Secret distributor, GT-RR and check out the entire range of Top Secret gear….

TAS09: Top Secret Super GT-R Sees the Light of Day

January 18th, 2009

Top Secret have been extremely busy over the past year since they picked up their first GT-R in December 2007. Their showing at Tokyo AutoSalon 2008 got everyone’s hopes up but shortly after they disappeared into the Top Secret batcave in Chiba. When they emerged six months later they came bearing their first parts and have slowly picked up the volume since.

Now the Top Secret Nissan GT-R parts catalogue is quite broad offering everything from multiple types of suspension to body kits to electronically operated exhausts.

Something we hadn’t seen yet from Top Secret that was at Tokyo Auto Salon 2009 were these 410mm front and rear rotors for the R35 GT-R. Just when you thought your 400mm rotors were big someone goes and gets a bigger set. Top Secret’s 410mm rotor sets go for 230,000 yen for the front and 250,000 yen for the rear.

As for the Top Secret demo car, it featured the following laundry list of modifications:

  • Top Secret Super Induction Kit
  • Top Secret Intercooler Piping Kit (half titanium)
  • Cobb Tuning Access Port Top Secret Version
  • Top Secret TV-Pro Titanium Muffler
  • Top Secret Titanium Front Pipe
  • Top Secret G-Force Front Lip Spoiler
  • Top Secret G-Force Side Diffuser
  • Top Secret G-Force Rear Diffuser
  • Top Secret Super Spring Roberuta Kit (F:14kg/mm R:7.3-10.3kg/mm)
  • Rays Volk Racing TE37G2 20×10 front and 20×11 rear wheels
  • Takata Harnesses

Top Secret Titanium Intercooler Piping Kit Fitted

October 21st, 2008

Top Secret’s titanium piping kit made a pretty good impression when it was first shown a couple of weeks back. Here’s a couple of photos of it from Top Secret fitted up to their demo car.

Looks like this kit also may have an effect on the intake piping coming loose issue that a few guys have seen due with the OE rubber intake hoses. Silicon hose joiners are included in the kit.

Updated: Better images and a close up of the pipes showing the Top Secret intake kit fitted also (click Read more link below to see that photo). Thanks to Ben from GTR23.com for the photos.
