AVUS Performance Tuned Nissan GT-R – Germans at it Again

September 24, 2009


This one crossed my email more than a few times today so obviously some of you are interested, so here it is. The AVUS Performance Nissan GT-R features a claimed horsepower boost up to 580hp with 516 lb/ft of torque via an exhaust and tune. It also features one mean looking facade achieved with a matte black vinyl and some aggressive offset, but standard, wheels thanks to spacers. Looks great but have AVUS erred too much on the conservative side here?

C’mon Germany! You guys give us such legendary tuning houses such as RUF and this is what you’re putting in press releases? Don’t produce any more COBRA N+ things (remember that?) PLEASE!

To make it up to us you can video your Batmobil at the Nurburgring hauling ass and allll will be forgiven!

Thanks to James for the first email tip in!

AVUS PERFORMANCE-Nissan GTR – Batmobil Reloaded

The Nissan GT-R build as a sportscoupe and direct opponent of the Porsche Turbo was revealed at the Tokio Motor Show in 2007. As a direct successor of the Skyline GT-R R34 the bar has been laid high already. With only 480 examples for Europe the GT-R is one of those rare sports-cars.

For AVUS PERFORMANCE a Nissan GT-R Black Edition was the basis for a very ambitious project. Besides optical changes they also put the emphasis on more power. A new modified ECU and a special new exhaust pipe (2 cats and the middle silencer have been removed) help the GT-R up to an impressive 580bhp and 700 Nm of torque (stock 485bhp and 588Nm).

Visually you can only imagine the power the GT-R has. The matt black, the lowering via coilovers (stock adjustments for the dampers will be kept) and the black painted 20″ wheels combined with wheel spacers sum up the package. Individually painted parts like the front bumper, the rear diffusor, air vents, tinted windows can be seen when taking a close look.
