· When attaching to BNR 32 and BCNR 33, it is necessary to remove bumper and bumper reinforcement. · When attaching to a standard bumper car of BNR 34, some processing (removal of claws to fix the net) is required on the bumper face. · When installing on BNR 34, you can not install genuine net. In addition, to install the Nissan genuine optional intercooler air spoiler, processing on the air spoiler itself is necessary.
MY2015 Nissan GT-R will be introduced and will be on sale from 25th November. GT-R Otaku has managed to obtain a secret document with detail of the MY2015 GT-R. The new MY2015 is not track focused but aimed at being the “premium sport” and thus became even more comfortable than the MY2014.
<What they have changed>
*With MY2014, Nissan’s engineers looked into lessening of the pitching in ride quality. With MT2015, they looked into the horizontal movement of the ride quality. Nissan claims the stability of the MY2015 GT-R is 4times higher than that of Porsche 911, 3times higher than that of Mercedes Benz C63 AMG… We do not know how Nissan measured the difference…
*The damping of the shock absorbers have been changed and ECU has been remapped accordingly. MY2015 GT-R’s agility has increased a great deal.
*The material as well as the design of the tires have been refined. They not only grip better but absorb unnecessary road information thus providing better ride quality.
*Engine, transmission, trans-axel, driveshaft have all been refined to have less constructional “gaps”. Lessening the gaps has led to less mechanical noise and lessened the friction losses. The bearings of the transmission have been altered by few microns.
*By lessoning of friction losses, acceleration of the MY2015 has improved an ECU has been refined accordingly.

We travel all around Japan and feel GT-R owners’ passion for their cars as well as their wishes to own the car for a very long time. How could you maintain the best condition for your GT-Rs may be of your interest. And we will go further than just restorations.

The footages are of onboard cameras of tuned GT-Rs, interviews of the tuning shops as well as drivers. We also brought the latest NISMO GT-R to both Fuji Speedway and Tsukuba Circuit and recoded its lap time.
Other contents of GT-R Magazine Vol.117 includes Skyline V37, the opening of R’s Meeting 2014 entries, the latest report on sports wheels and brand philosophies, Super GT 2014 report, GT-R Magazine original R34 steering wheel development etc.
NISSAN have just started delivery of GT-R NISMOs to their customers in Japan.
Currently, 22 GT-R NISMOs have been delivered, and all the cars was build in February and March.
Due to limited production volume and time consuming production process, NISSAN can build only 5 to 10 units a month.
No GT-R NISMO will be made and delivered in April, according to our source.
Nissan’s Executive Vice President, Andy Palmer never fails to offer media with surprises. At Tokyo Motorshow, back in 2011, he stated “it’s a complete bullshit” on claims that electric automobiles simply transfer emissions from the vehicle’s tailpipe to the countless electricity-generating smokestacks across the globe. Last year, when Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ made their debuts, he called them “mid-life crisis cars” and made headlines… lol
And we applaud him for being so frank. In fact, he is awesome.
He’s an engineer, a business leader and a great driver, too, apparently. When NISMO GT-R was attempting for Nurburgring record lap, Andy drove a lap as well. His time was somewhere in 8minutes range and surprised all the people present.
Nissan just uploaded a video of Andy driving the new NISMO GT-R at Nissan’s test track in Tochigi prefecture. The video shows NISMO GT-R’s chief vehicle engineer explaining of the car and Andy driving… We would have loved to see Andy driving on Nurburgring though.
It’s nice to know that Nissan has car enthusiast as one of their executives!
日産自動車副社長のアンディ・パーマー氏、毒舌家で我々メディアに賑やかな話題を提供してくれる人物です（笑）。2011年、東京モーターショーの囲み取材中（発電所がCO2を排出しているかぎり）EVはCO2排出転嫁をしているだけではないか、という指摘に「it’s a complete bullshit」（英語圏では基本、放送禁止用語：でたらめ、という意味）と発してみたり、トヨタ86／スバルBRZにてついて「中年期の鬱病用」と称してみたり。
For the first time, we have documented the overhaul & refresh process of an R35 in a film.
The very first DVD released by GT-R Magazine.
The length of the DVD is 167 minutes and will be on sale from 5th March.
GT-R Magazine is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. As a commemorative gesture, we will release our very first DVD magazine, highlighting on our 2007 R35 GT-R, staff car, which has been driven over 123,000km for the last 6 years. We have pulled the car apart and checked how worn and torn the car really is and refreshed anything necessary. This R35 has been our everyday car as well as a circuit machine.
Our GT-R was diagnosed at NISMO Omori factory. Engine, transmission and chassis were pulled a part by highly skilled mechanics and received careful inspection. Many of the damaged parts were either replaced or updated with parts from the latest R35. After an overhaul, we brought the car to winding roads as well as a circuit to check for its potential. The DVD also looks closely into 2014 R35 and features extensive test drives in all sorts of situations.
The 167 minutes DVD comes with a 20page special booklet. This DVD is dedicated to GT-R owners of all generations as well as potential buyers of R35s.
