Nissan GT-R Nismo Kit

This is a fully NISMO-kitted Nissan GT-R and lord, do we want one. Bad.

Called the Club Sport, the NISMO (Nissan Motorsport International) GT-R comes with Bilstein Damptronic adjustable dampers, stiffer Nismo springs and 20-inch Rays forged aluminium wheels fitted with Bridgestone RE070R run-flats (255/40 front and 285/35 rear).

It's thought the exact same Rays/Bridgestone combo will feature on the upcoming V-Spec GT-R.

Other goodies include a pair of carbon-backed, leather Recaro buckets which retain the side airbags yet lose the electric motors, saving six kilograms per seat.
A lightweight titanium exhaust is also available (dropping five kilos) as is a new carbon-fibre undertray.

The bad news? The package costs nearly £30,000 (about $42,500) and it's only available in Japan. Nissan will honour warranties on NISMO-equipped GT-Rs but only if the car is inspected by NISMO following any forays onto the track.
