Check out this Indonesia Nissan GT-R that’s been lowered so it’s kissing the ground.
In general, a lower center of gravity is a good thing. It makes you more stable, more hard to tip over, and therefore allows you to perform more extreme maneuvers that would otherwise topple a higher-riding car.
But there is always too much of a good thing, as they say in the old Red Stripe commercials. This particular Nissan GT-R, as beautiful as it is, might be a little too close to the pavement. What good is having a widebody kit and super-tuned suspension if you’re constantly dragging your side sills on the ground?
We have international wheelmaker ADV.1 Wheels to thank for this particular mod job which made at their Indonesian office. What started life as a humble Nissan GT-R, already an amazing supercar in its own right, has found a new lease as a phenomenal tuner car.
From the ADV1. Wheels website we have a few specifics on what into this particular mod job. To start with the obvious, there’s a Rocket Bunny Pandem widebody kit expanding the GT-R to sizes it was never meant to achieve. The wheels are ADV5.0 Track Spec CS Series that have had their rims painted a matte bronze, while the rest of the car is painted a complimentary shade of purple.
But besides that, we don’t have any of the specifics for this build. We know its been lowered by the fact it’s literally a hair’s width from touching the pavement, which might make those “track” wheels a little superfluous. We can assume that suspension is adjustable so that the car can actually drive over Indonesian roads, which much like here in America, aren’t perfectly flat and smooth surfaces everywhere you go.
The entire front fascia has been replaced, with a new front splitter, new grille, side canards, and daytime running lights. The headlights look to be stock, but the hood is definitely a carbon fiber replacement. At the back, it’s the same story, with the spoiler being replaced by a carbon fiber lip and a larger rear diffuser being installed.
According to Motor1, this is a 2018 model so it should get 565 hp--assuming that nothing’s been done under the hood. These jobs are usually just cosmetic, but if you’re going to spend that much money making it look pretty you can at least spare a time for a few functional upgrades.
