Varis Runduce Price Carbon Aero Parts for Nissan GT-R

January 29, 2010 Comments off

It’s not their widebody masterpiece (yet) but it’s the first stage of carbon fibre upgrades for the Nissan GT-R to come out of Japanese legend Varis. Renowned for their amazing Evo and STi work in the past we’re hoping their final stage of GT-R modifications “fills the shoes” so to speak.

Anyways, pricing is now out for both Japan and US regions thanks to Varis and GT-RR as well as the official product shots. Their kit will be available in Varis Semi Dry Carbon (VSDC) versions as well as wet carbon with separate pricing for each.

The VSDC option allows Varis to produce some very lightweight rigid parts without the full extra cost of a traditional dry carbon production.

The Varis Front Diffuser for example weighs in at 4.5kg versus the 6.5kg standard OEM front underspoiler – more than 30% weight savings. It’s priced at about $2740 USD but probably a little less for the wet carbon version.

Next take a look at the Varis Aero Hood, featuring some unique venting it also looks to be well constructed from underneath. The VSDC version goes for around the $4620 mark but the wet carbon version is just $2845. There’s a weight reduction to just 8.5kg in the VSDC version of the hood.

The rear diffuser round back is again quite an original look, personally I think it needs time to grow on me but if its your cup of tea you can pick one up for $1250 in wet carbon. There is currently no VSDC version of this item.

The sideskirts were quite a hit for me, they really work well with the lines of the car but stand out at the same time. They’re also pretty cheap at just $1250 a set in Varis Semi Dry Carbon. Again you can knock off a bit of that price for the normal wet carbon version if you wanted.

Lastly we have the Varis Rear Wing and Trunk Spoiler available in full VSDC or in VSDC with a FRP trunk spoiler. It’s again an original looking wing that will certainly set your car apart from all the others. I’m not feeling the trunk spoiler but the wing itself looks great. The price is $3350 for the VSDC version or $2750 for the VSDC FRP combo.

Tokyo AutoSalon 2010: Varis Original RUNDUCE Nissan GT-R

Varis Original Runduce Nissan GT-R at Tokyo AutoSalon

Well the 2010 Tokyo AutoSalon finally kicked off today after what seemed like an endless wait! GTRBlog went along to check out the show and see the progress so far on the Varis/Original Runduce Nissan GT-R build. You probably recall when we broke the news that Runduce would be producing a full widebody carbon fibre body kit fo the GT-R back towards the end of December 2009. Well they had actually only kicked that project off at that stage so nobody seriously expected them to complete the whole kit by January.

They did however manage to turn out some respectable carbon parts for the GT-R including the following:

  • Carbon Fibre Hood
  • Carbon Fibre Front Underspoiler
  • Carbon Fibre Rear Underspoiler
  • Carbon Fibre Side Skirts

Varis also came to the GT-R party on this build, supplying some additional extras for this car in the form of:

  • Varis Hyper Narrow GT-Wing for Nissan GT-R
  • Varis original GT-R trunk lip spoiler
  • Varis Sound Control Exhaust System

Other parts in the build so far are HKS HyperMax III Suspension, Recaro Racing Seats, AVS Model F15 wheels (20×10.5 all round) and ADVAN 275 wide tires to finish them off.

While there’s a lot of parts on this car, there’s more to come from Varis and Original Runduce after AutoSalon so we’ll keep following their progress and report back when we hear more.

For now, please enjoy the photo gallery from the show today!!!

Runduce Kickoff 600hp Full Carbon Aero GT-R Project

December 22, 2009 Comments off

Japan tuning house Original Runduce have embarked on an epic tuning project this week. Finally sinking their teeth into some serious R35 work, their plans are to take this innocent looking black GT-R of theirs and turn it into a full carbon bodied weapon with at least 600hp at the wheels.

Judging by their concept art, we should see some pumped front and rear fenders with a matching front bumper. The bumper looks like they might keep it real with some more simple styling. The aero hood looks aggressive but functional and the rear spoiler to match.

Expect to see Runduce at Tokyo AutoSalon 2010, with exactly what on show we wont know but we don’t have to wait long to find out…
