725 HP Nissan GT-R Racecar Uses Porsche 911 GT3 RS Color, Tons of Balanced Mods

Nowadays, the racing world sees R35 GT-Rs taken well north of the 2,000 hp border, so a 750 HP Godzilla might seem less than worthy of a story. Nevertheless, while those four-digit monsters are used at the drag strip, the Nissan we're here to show you aims to deliver a balanced experience on the circuit.

Built by California-based Evasive Motorsports, this GT-R comes with the kind of step-by-step approach that allows car and driver to work together on the track. To be more precise, we're dealing with a work-in-progress project, so, despite the enormous list of mods, this isn't the final form of the JDM delight.

For now, the aim was to push the VR38DETT under the hood to its limits, but without having to use a built motor setup, hence the 725 hp on tap. While most of the engine compartment custom goodies come from GReddy, the twin-turbo V6 now uses an E85 tune.

Matching stopping power is delivered by a setup consisting of Alcon Monoblock grabbers using a six-piston, 400 mm setup for the front wheels and a six-piston 385mm setup at the rear. Oh, and let's not forget the Project Mu H6 racing brake pads.

In the suspension department, the most important components include Tein 3 Way Super Racing Dampers, Swift way bars (front and rear), as well as a custom rear setup built using SPL Titanium bits (camber, traction and toe links), with a lock out kit completing the scenery.

This GT-R now rides on 20-inch Advan GT Premium wheels, which are shod in Nitto NT01 rubber sized 315/30 R20 all around the car.

The 2010 Nissan uses tons of serious aero elements, with the list being led by Ben Sopra aprons and fenders, as well as by EVS Spec carbon goodies (front splitter, air ducts and vented hood). As we mentioned in the title, the whole package is dressed in a shade of Grey borrowed from the 997-generation Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Climbing aboard, we find the mandatory rollcage, along with Recaro Profi SPG seats, a Takata Race six-point harness, as well as a Nardi Classic Suede steering wheel that does away with the airbag.

While all the bits and bobs above may sound like a collection of parts, the beauty of such projects is the way in which all these elements come together, making the machine sharper on the track. And you'll get a sample of this building art in the clip below.
