It has been a while in the making but as we always say at VAD, perfection takes time and Total Car Concepts (TCC) have absolutely smashed this build out of the park, from the body work to the Switzer engine upgrade that sits up front, this is a serious track build that is also road legal … whoever said GT3 builds will not make good road cars, we beg to differ.
We have been involved with four different GT3 road going builds, Ferrari 458, Nissan GTR, Porsche 997 & our very own BMW Z4 with each and every one proving they don’t just look spectacular road cars, but they can also be used as daily transport, and TCC have yet again proved a Nissan GTR GT3 makes one hell of a machine, with epic race looks to match that blistering Switzer performance.
We met the TCC boys through their trials and tribulations dealing with the criminal activities of Dominik Bahn and his despicable company Carbostuff Engineering, Kevin had issues dealing with Dominik Bahn, but as History shows Kevin was just caught up with a fraud specialist, but luckily Kevin and the TCC crew didn’t lose too much money and we came to the part to assist with some of the carbon race parts they were in need of, and they have also reciprocated helping us source various parts for our GTR parts line up, which has been invaluable.
So on to the build and what updates have been done since we last featured this wonderful GTR back in September 2019, well the main upgrade is it’s been painted, and we are glad to see that colour is white as its suits and shows up all of the wonderful GT3 details and how deceptively wide this aero pack is.
To enhance the GT3 style, TCC have adapted their own centre lock wheel set up keeping the 4WD set up, but using the 13x18 GT3 forged 1 piece Monoblock wheels, its details like this that we absolutely love, with the added bonus of sitting on a bespoke JRZ coilover suspension set up.
To recap on the engine side of this build, it’s been meticulously put together and the spec is mouth-watering and they offer this conversion, which also happens to be the most popular.
