Switzer released a new tuning package for the 2010 Nissan GT-R with focus on weight reduction and increasing the car’s power to weight ratio. Apparently the project is based on a customers request to have a track-focused GT-R which can also take he and his wife to a dinner in comfort and luxury!
So they began reducing the mass by fitting the car with featherweight carbon rotors from AP, which cut a significant amount of unsprung weight (the enemy of handling) and rotating mass (the enemy of acceleration) from each corner of the GTR, while improving fade resistance. Application-specific pads, high-temperature brake fluid (AP), and stainless steel braided brake lines round out the brake package with improved pedal feel and increase stopping power.
They have also provided the car with lightweight (ceramic-coated) titanium exhaust system, dry-carbon decklid, and lightweight sports seats from Bride.
After that, Switzer gives the car their mighty P800 performance kit which includes new turbochargers, intercoolers and manifolds, and delivers 800 hp and almost 700 lb-ft of torque. Now this is a proper supercar recipe! That’s why Switzer also installs fully-adjustable JRZ suspension system, complemented by stiffer adjustable swaybars, an underbody diffuser, and an active-aero wing from Aeromotions, which supplements braking and cornering by constantly varying the wing’s angle of attack.
The thing is, no matter how fast this car is and how much horsepower it’s got, at the end of the day it’s still a NISSAN! and that’s kinda like marrying a woman who has a perfect body but a very ugly face!
