One Sublime R33

I must say the R33 GTR is probably my least favorite among Nissan’s flagship line. The sheer bulkiness and elongated shape of the car makes it less appealing than the other generations of GTRs. However, with a few minor strategic tweaks, the R33 can seem a lot more appealing…

A subtle drop and Nismo LMGT1s makes this R33 a legitimate neck breaker.

Blackish: HKS Kansai GT800 R35 GTR

It’s another gorgeous HKS Kansai Service vehicle. This time it’s a R35 GTR equipped with their HKS GT800 turbine kit along with HKS internals for maximum power and efficiency. Other notable parts on this car’s extensive list include WALD, Top Secret, and Zele exterior pieces, those gloss black Advan GTs, and a host of Kansai Service bits and pieces.

Wild and Crazy: Route KS NSX

With the new NSX on the horizon, it’s pretty crazy to think that this iconic line of Japanese sports car has been around for over two decades. But yet, little has changed in the years previous to the new generation of NSXes, that’s 20+ years of the same body lines and a relatively same motor, something that’s pretty much unheard of as far as automobiles are concerned. This goes to show just how advance and timeless the NSX truly is, and with some aftermarket support, the possibilities are endless…

Over the years I’ve seen some really great aftermarket support pop up for the NSX, both in Japan and the Stateside. Of course, personally, I prefer the Japanese side of things because they know how to accentuate the NSX like no other. One of my personal favorite manufacturers is definitely Route KS. Why? Cause they offer BOTH aggressiveness (pictured below) or smooth and elegant (Madonna) and having a choice of either is always a plus!

The Route KS Hornet front bumper is as aggressive as they come…

Although I did title this post “Route KS NSX”, this exterior is actually a mixture of Route KS, Marga Hills, IMPACT, and genuine Type R pieces.

What we have here is a Route KS front bumper, Marga Hills side step and rear bumper, along with IMPACT wide fenders.

A gigantic Route KS rear GT wing and rear diffuser sets the back side off as aggressive as can be.

BBS LMs with Honda center caps round out the exterior quite nicely.

The Simpler Route: JDM Zele GTR

One of my favorite, more simpler kits for the R35 GTR has got to be the Zele kit and this one here is a gorgeously executed example. This simple but amazing looking GTR is rocking a full Zele exterior as well as some iconic BBS LMs that literally compliments any car.

Only with a R35 GTR would 600HP be considered mildly tuned…and that’s exactly what we have here. Rocking a HKS GT600 kit, Yokohama Advan AVS Model F15 wheels, Top Secret carbon hood, and an Auto Select carbon lip spoiler, this thing is definitely a formidable street car and of course the occasional track duties.
