2012 Nissan R35 GT-R by mcchip-dkr and CoverEFX


(from Nissan Press Release)  596 PS in Film Coating– GT-R-Tuning by mcchip-dkr & CoverEFX

Since entering the market in 2008, the Nissan GT-R of the R35 series has been scaring the living daylight out of its traditional competitors in the category of Sports and Super Sports Cars with its extreme performance and lap times. Even in its “ancient version“, the 3.8 liter V6 of the High-Tech four-wheel drive that was on artificial respiration courtesy of its two turbo chargers was able to transmit a whopping 485 Horse Power in the direction of its drive chain. And ever since, Nissan has been beefing up this capacity almost at a yearly interval: 485 HP was initially followed by 530 and finally 550 Horse Power. It is at this rate that the 2012 model is able to sprint to 100 km/h in an incredible time of 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 315 kilometers per hour. The current GT-R is expected to circle the extremely demanding northern loop of the Nurburgring racing circuit in less than 7:20 minutes – as a serially produced car!

At 550 Horse Power however, the performance potential of the Biturbo drive engine has by far, not been exhausted as shown in the joint project vehicle of the company mcchip-dkr – specialist in electronic power boosting – from Mechernich/Obergartzem and the wrapping specialists of CoverEFX from Erftstadt. This develops a whopping 596 Horse Power and a maximum torque of 751 Newton meters – on the basis of the “small” 485 Horse Power GT-R – and based on a power-optimized software adaptation as well as the installation of a sports exhaust system. Another potential boosting level to the high-performance capacity that should then easily beat the magic mark of 600 Horse Power is currently undergoing development. The engine power can be reduced with a push of the button on the steering wheel for routine operation as well as for reduction to the level of serially produced standard vehicles, which should be more than sufficient for the routine drive to the supermarket.

To also facilitate a visual display of the added performance value, the wrapping specialists of CoverEFX from Erfstadt in their capacity as experts in such assignments, tailored a spectacular racing-style film-coating to match the dynamic body of the GT-R. A high-grade foil of the CFC 400 series of the colors Cardinal Red, Raven Black and Pina Colada White was applied using the novel knifeless technology. The screens of the Nippon Racer were shaded with the CFC Classic Style (Tail) and CFC Anthracite Style foil (Front). The CoverEFX letters applied on foil by means of multicolored digital print shines forth on the flanks of the vehicle.

Moreover, lowering springs from the company H&R reduce the ground clearance of the Nissan Sports Car by about 30 millimeters which endows the Nippon racer with a visibly lower looks and a noticeably optimized cornering dynamics.

Apropos of curves ... as many of you have probably noticed, our sexy GT-R model is of course Silvia Hauten – former “Miss Tuning”, who was also crowned Playmate of the month in the German Playboy.
