Tommy Kaira Nissan GT-R R35 Ebbrezza-R Premieres at Tokyo Auto Salon
Not surprisingly, the Tokyo Auto Salon 2010 was packed with tuning proposals for Nissan's scorching hot GT-R R35. Among the new offerings that made their debut at Japan's equivalent of the SEMA Show is Tommy Kaira's long awaited Ebbrezza-R sports package with styling and performance upgrades.
On the outside, there's a new aero kit trimmed in carbon fiber that includes a redesigned front bumper with a lip spoiler, side skirts, rear wheel arch add-ons, a rear wing and a beefier rear diffuser along with an underspoiler.
Tommy Kaira's package also includes a new set of 20-inch multispoke alloy wheel wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires size 255/40 ZR20 up front and 285/35 ZR20 at the back.
A lot of work has been performed in the cabin that has been clothed in a combination of red Alcantara and burgundy-colored, hand-stitched leather trim with contrasting white seams.
A pair of black Recaro bucket seats, unique floor mats and heaps of carbon fiber decorative trim round off the interior upgrades.
To be completely honest though, we can't say that we find Tommy Kaira's color and material choices even remotely tasteful...
There's not a lot going on under the sheetmetal as the Japanese tuner's offerings are limited to a sport titanium exhaust system, high-performance brakes and a sports suspension kit.
