VAD Nissan Wide Body GTR

At the start of the year we announced an all new VadZilla GTR wide body build that our good friends at BPA body shop are building down in Launceston, and we are pleased to say the build is starting to gather some pace.

After a conversation with the owner Ben he has give us a complete rundown on the build, and it’s not just a cosmetic build but the full works, the engine is coming in for some power upgrades, Ben told us the engine upgrades were not intentional more a necessity, as he purchased the car with a damaged engine, as it had dropped a couple of valves so the engine is in with a good friend, for some love and affection, so all the usual suspects will be up for enhancing, exhaust, injectors, intakes, with a few other bits on the upgrade list , so it should have plenty of go, with all the show.

With the original quarter panels removed, the aero kit has been test fitted, ready for the bonding of the new wider quarter panels that will house the extra special set of wheels that were built specifically for this build, the design chosen is our VAD CR-EVO in 12.5x21 fronts and 13x21 rears with deep concave profile, and the extended legs, gloss black centres and outer lips, with Gold bullion inner barrels, and hardware, it really is a beautiful combination, and one we can wait to see wrapped in the extra wide 355/25R21 Pirelli Pzero and installed on the car, hurry up Ben :-)

Lots of other quality parts are also finding their way onto this build, Ohlin 2 ways adjustable coilover suspension is a nice little touch, so the GTR gets the stance of the car all sorted, it all sounds mouth watering, especially the colour combination the car will be painted in, which we will cover in more detail in our update as the build progresses.
