Nissan Tochigi Plant – Godzilla Ground Zero: GTRBlog Photo Gallery

April 14, 2009 Comments off


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…

BRANEW Customer Cars: Dynamic Version Aero

March 31, 2009 Comments off


BRANEW have sold a few of their controversially styled Dynamic Version aero kits now and here’s a couple of photos of the latest installs on customer cars.

First up is the white with black grille insert look on black wheels. Since all we’ve seen so far of this kit is the white with silver demo car the white on black is just a small departure. The difference it makes is huge however and I think there’s no better way to do this kit.

Next up is the Dark Metal Grey GT-R again with Dynamic Version BRANEW front bumper. Click through the photo gallery below to see that as well as the BRANEW Black Edition demo car.

One last post of photos from Tokyo AutoSalon 2009 we attended last month. We really focused on the GT-R this year and didn’t get too many shots of the booth babes, but that doesn’t mean we returned completely empty handed.

Here’s our final post on photos from TAS2009. We had an amazing time this year and can’t wait until we head back to Japan next. Click through the pages below to see all the pics. Enjoy!

Volk Racing TE37 G2 Zele Edition Black, New GT-R Offset

January 5, 2009 Comments off

First seen at SEMA in the US, Volk has recently released a new addition to their wheel lineup. The Volk Racing G2 or TE37 G2. Following this they have now added a new offset to the lineup to debut at Tokyo AutoSalon 2009. The new GT-R fitment changes the front to 20″x10″ +30mm offset while the rear moves to a 20″x11″ +25mm offset.

Zele International have a set of these for demoing at Tokyo AutoSalon in the flat black colour that everyone seemed to love at SEMA. We snapped a few shots of them while recently on site at Zele for a pre-TAS visit.

Rays Wheels will have quite a substantial sized booth at Tokyo AutoSalon as usual. They’re located in Hall 1 this year so stop by to check these out in the flesh.

Nissan Series II R35 GT-R: Photo Gallery

December 26, 2008 Comments off

Regular readers will remember when Nissan officially announced the 2009 Japanese model year updates for the Nissan R35 GT-R, something we’ve been calling the Series II R35 GT-R. Since then we’ve seen some press photos/photoshops but no great photos of the updated GT-R.

Today I headed down to Ginza Nissan Gallery in Tokyo to see if I could change this and here’s the results.

Here we have a MY09 JDM specification Nissan GT-R in the new-for-09 Brilliant White colour. This is a Premium version so it also features the new coloured wheels (Real Black colour). You can also see the updated logo on the brakes.

I took some other shots of the brake lines (upgraded stiffness) and the engine bay (not much changed). Also you can see this is the 12th MY09 JDM GT-R built with all MY09 GT-R’s beginning with chassis number R35-010000. Looks like engine numbers do the same, starting at VR38-010000.

Feel free to flick through the gallery below…
