●Nismo Skyline GT-R Z-tune [Part II]

As promised here are a few more pictures from the Z-tune test drive.
Front blistered fenders
Powerful yet compact Brembo 6 pot front calipers
Gearbox and rear A-LSD cooler. Notice the rear carbon diffuser has been ditched.
Same LED rear lights used in the 2002 GT-500 GT-Rs...(I'm beginning to like these!)
Nismo Z2 RB28 GT engine. Unfortunately Nismo have no intention of selling that nice and chunky titanium strut bar
Chassis number 001
Rear boot compartment gets the carbon treatment. Only weighs 2Kg
And finally the interior. Red alcantara inserts are an obvious link with Nismo and hold your rear end glued to the seat during fast cornering. Leather might be Connolly but already showing sings of wear, far too shiny and slippery for my liking and not very tightly upholstered around the seats. No idea what's going on with the steering wheel, alcantara trim was good for grip but the rim is far too thin (reminds me of the rim in a FIAT 500!!) Stereo is a 2 DIN unit and looks like its been taken from a 1991 Nissan Gloria. I guess Nismo thought it would be stupid to waste money on a good headunit when its the first thing people cahnge on cars.

Hi there, great job on the photography! I was wondering if its possible to get a higher res version of the Z-tune pictures for deskstop purposes.

As Jason has stated, your photgraphy skills are amazing. I couldn't agree more. Would you be able to send me your beautiful car shots in a bigger resolution? Particularly of the two bayside blue R34's by Top Secret and the HKS Driving PerformerR34. I'd say i've pretty much fallen in love with it.

Keep up the great work,
Akhil J.
