SEMA 2009: The White Black Bison – WALD Nissan GT-R

November 14, 2009 Comments off


The WALD Nissan GT-R is one of those cars you either love or hate. It’s grown on me a lot since the first debut in January this year. A full Black Bison fitted white R35 was camped out in the south hall so we grabbed a few photos of it.

For more info you can check out our WALD category for past posts including pricing and so on.

Zele Plus WALD Equals Interesting Combination?

June 23, 2009 Comments off


Arios have been tweaking the look on a customer’s R35 GT-R recently. They have had a full carbon fibre Zele Performance aero kit installed which is made up of the front lip, side skirts and rear underspoiler. They liked the look of the WALD rear over-fenders (from the WALD SportsLine aero kit) though and decided to integrate the looks. Overall I feel this is quite a successful combination. Once they add some ultra-wide wheels at the rear to properly fill up the guards it should look even better.

For now it’s a one off custom made set of over-fenders but I dare say it would not be hard for any competent body shop to emulate this if you were into that sort of thing.

TAS09: WALD Sports Line GT-R Shows Off Wildest GT-R Aero Styling Yet

January 21, 2009 Comments off

We’ve been following the build up of the WALD Sports Line Aero kit from concept through to final molds here on GTRBlog and regular readers will have been anticipating the final product for some time. Finally we knew it’d be at Tokyo AutoSalon so we were extremely excited to see it.

But… personally, I missed the WALD GT-R, even after several laps of Makuhari Messe I didn’t find it. Fortunately our great friends at know a little more about “asking directions” than we do so we’re able to snap a load of great photos on our behalf (ありがとうございました!).

As you can see the WALD Sports Line “Black Bison” Edition styling masterpiece remains quite faithful to the concept rendering from back in September 2008. It features the following components:

  • Front Bumper Spoiler (Front Bumper/Front Lip/Grille Cover/Side Duct/Under Cover)
  • Side Step
  • Rear Diffuser
  • Trunk Spoiler
  • Rear Wing Element
  • Rear Over Fenders

The Black Bison is finished with a set of WALD P13F three piece aluminium 22 inch wheels, 9.5 inches wide at the front and 10.5 inches in the rear. HKS HiperMax III suspension gives it that lowered stance.

On the inside WALD has tricked out the interior with it’s red leather and suede treatment which carrys the Nissan Japanese market Black Edition theme to the centre console, handbrake boot steering wheel and gear knob. Carbon fibre touches accentuate the shifter surround, steering wheel and gauge surround.

WALD Sportsline GT-R Development – Part 4 – Front Bar

October 6, 2008 Comments off

The WALD Sportsline body kit is certainly coming along with quite a lot of the clay work done on the front end now.

The front bar, front lip, headlights and grille are the main focal points and are almost completed in first draft stage. Looks slightly different to the renders around the fog lights. It’ll be interesting to see how it changes next.

October 1, 2008 Comments off

WALD Sportsline Body Kit development continues. Focusing on the rear fenders this update but a little more has been done with the front end. Headlights are being shaped and vents have been cut roughly.

Slight more has also been done on the front bar, a bit of shaping and cutting to get the desired lines. More photos after the jump.

WALD Sportsline GT-R Development – Part 2 – Body Shaping

September 21, 2008 Comments off

More progress on the WALD Sportsline body kit can be seen in this update from WALD. The initial design work is taken off the drawing board and sculpted in clay onto a GT-R (protected with masking tape). Once engineers are happy with this moulds will be taken for the first prototype parts to be built from.

Here we can see a start has been made on the front bumper, the grill, the headlight, the rear diffuser, the side skirts and the rear fender flares.

Hopefully with this amount of progress a prototype kit will be out sooner than expected. Don’t forget to check part 1 of WALD’s progress at the link below. Also a lot more photos from this update after the jump.

WALD Interior Parts for R35 GT-R

September 7, 2008 Comments off

Not complacent in just making over the exterior of the GT-R, the WALD artists have taken to the interior of the R35 just as enthusiastically with carbon fibre and leather parts. Here you can see the gear surround and the main instrument surround tastefully recreated in CF.

We also see that the gear knob, hand brake boot and center console armrest are reclad in Nissan GT-R black-edition matching red on black Alcantara. A great looking addition to an already good interior.

WALD are on track to complete their GT-R demo car well in time for Tokyo Auto Salon 2009 in January next year. GTRBlog will be there early taking a full range of photos of this car up close so we can really see how it turns out.
