Click above to see SEMA's best Nissan GT-Rs

With the exception of the Dodge Challenger, the Nissan GT-R seems to be the vehicle of choice for SEMA. In addition to the numerous Nissan tuners, it seemed that nearly every wheel and tire manufacturer had Godzilla manning its booth. We were determined to see all the different variations, and did our best to photograph everyone we came across. We've assembled our ten favorite GT-Rs, and put together a huge gallery of all the GT-Rs at this year's SEMA show.

      I gotta say, some of the cars are actually surprisingly tasteful and restrained. I don't know how heavy the wheels on the HRE wheels GT-R are, but if they're lighter than stock then that car might actually have only parts that make the car lighter, since the other parts are all CF replacements for stock parts. I like how it's the GTRR, hahaha.

      I actually think some of the cars on that list might actually outperform the stock GT-R. Although I do kind of wish someone had just made an insanely power-added one with almost a complete Carbon Fiber reskin and forged Magnesium wheels and Titanium Exhaust. Now that would be all go =P

      You know what I would do if I was an exhibitor there? Just put a stock GT-R on display. It's great as-is without over-customizing it.

      Aaaaaaand the winner is... STOCK. By default, though, because the rest were abhorrent like a botched abortion of a clone-experiment-gone-wrong.

      why no aftermarket turbo's?
        • 6 Years Ago
        The turbos are actually the same piece of the intake manifold, so it would be extremely difficult and costly to replace them. Nissan basically doesn't want you to mod this car.

      Zele International, Mine's & HRE Wheels all look pretty good, imo.

      Seibon seemed to have much more sense than others. Dry carbon looks great.

      I wonder if these cars actually end up being faster or slower than a stock GT-R say around the Nordschleiffe, I mean, wouldn't those mods actually disturb some of that balance that Nissan perfected for so long?

      Maybe someone should try beefing up the suspension though, that would be very useful.

        I can't help but wonder the same thing. I mean, these people employed the best of the best to work for years on this car. The only way I can see to improve would be to sacrifice driveability - sure you theoretically COULD make it go faster, but you're going to have to deal with it off the track too, and that's what most people don't want to put up with. Besides, as if the stock GT-R isn't fast enough!!! Most people don't flat-out their Hyundai's on a regular basis...

        The Mine's GT-R was tested by R/T and it proved to be faster around a circuit (Streets of Willowsprings I think) than a stock GT-R AND a TechART Turbo.

        The Mine's (and Amuse's Phantom GT-R) is the best outside of a stock GT-R...because the modifications actually helped the car PERFORM better. But that's just my opinion.

      Someone needs to develop a kit to beef up the trans, and and a module to disable the "black box". Then you will be able to drive the thing the way it was meant to without worrying about it breaking.
