TommyKaira Nissan GT-R Aero Development Update
TommyKaira made it known recently that their eye was firmly on the Nissan GT-R to add to their lineup of complete cars and over the past month or so development has been underway over at TommyKaira HQ about 2hrs outside Nagoya in Aichi Prefecture, Japan.
So far they have a guinea pig and have been shaping up the initial clay models to build the prototype molds from. Traditionally TommyKaira aero modifications have been a tweak in the direction of aggressive without going too far, so their work on the GT-R up to now is looking to be quite bold in contrast.
The front end will consist of a original front bumper available in FRP or carbon fibre, the choice being yours. The front lip will be a seperate piece and will be available in either wet or dry carbon fibre.
On the side, original sideskirts will be integrated with a rear overfender. The overfender is designed to give another 20mm of wheel offset available in the rear. Out back is a fully redesigned rear underspoiler, oversized rear wing and a small trunk lip spoiler to finish it off.
Overall I’m reminded vividly of the WALD Sportsline Black Bison Edition Nissan GT-R aero kit that we followed the development of since September in 2008. The use of an aggressive front bumper and a bolt on overfender is giving me deja vu. TommyKaira also do interior components for their complete cars so my guess is we’ll start to see those prototypes soon also.
