Previewed earlier in the year, C-West have now rolled out the new full dry carbon GT-Wing for the Nissan GT-R for sale. Designed for high speed circuit applications, the wing is extremely lightweight and strong owing to it’s carbon honeycomb construction. The wing is also easily adjusted by way of the set pins on each end cap.
While this wing design is their high-speed downforce model, a second model offering more downforce, albeit with more drag, is planned for early next year.
High end wings like this don’t come cheap and price of admission is 682,500 yen in Japan. Expect a delivery 30 – 40 days after ordering as they’re made to order.

Following on from their initial release of carbon fibre aero parts for the Nissan GT-R, C-West have added this sturdy looking rear wing and carbon fibre trunk hood to their range.
The trunk hood is made from dry carbon composite (DCC) which features an internal honeycomb construction for added strength. At the same time it’s extremely lightweight at just 2.9kgs. The trunk hood can be yours at around the 399,000 yen mark. Update: US Pricing is just in from GT-RR.com -US GT-R owners can expect to pay around the $3,800 mark for this one.
The rear wing is still classified as in development but we can tell you it also will be manufactured in dry carbon composite material for it’s low weight and high material strength. It may not look pretty but a strong rear wing in this design should be quite functional in terms of adding rear downforce.

Japanese aero legends C-West have been teasing us with promises of their new aero kit since December last year and finally the wait to see what they’ve been busy creating is over.
Tastefully modeled in these photos on a Brilliant White Nissan GT-R SpecV, the C-West GT-R Aero lineup consists of a front half spoiler, side skirts and rear under finishers. A trunk lid and original design rear spoiler is currently under development.
Each of these new items is available in three constructions, a fibreglass reinforced plastic version (FRP) a polyfibre reinforced plastic (PFRP) and finally, a carbon fibre version.

Interesting look although it’s getting tougher to compete in the GT-R front-lip marketspace these days with so many quality contenders entering their parts.
What do you guys think of the C-West design? Too little too late?

Popular original body kit designers and manufacturers C-West have announced their plans for a Nissan R35 GT-R kit to be released early next year. The kit so far consists of a front chin spoiler and a set of sideskirts.
C-West kits are usually top quality and manufactured in fibreglass to save on weight. Can’t wait to see this one completed.
