GT-R with Vorsteiner Ventross aero-kit

Vorsteiner is one of the most well known aero-kit companies in the BMW market.

Their bumpers, trunks, and spoilers always have an incredible style and OEM fit to them. In the past, we used Vorsteiner products on our Project M3 and Project 997TT vehicles, and we recently installed the Ventross branded Nissan GT-R kit on a 2010 pearl white R35.

The front bumper is much more aggressive then the factory flat look. Featuring a carbon fiber lower lip spoiler that wraps around from fender well to fender well, the bumper also has brilliant carbon fiber ducts. This duct work keeps air flowing to cool the factory oil coolers and deliver more cooling to the large Brembo brakes. In addition to the front bumper, Vorsteiner has also designed a new functional carbon fiber rear diffuser. This diffuser replaces the original lower portion of the stock bumper. The complete carbon fiber features aerodynamic diffuser fins with amazing attention to detail.

This car is also equipped with HRE M40 monoblock wheels, 5zigen Inconel exhaust, Cobb AccessPort, Eibach springs, Titek carbon vents, and Agency Power catless downpipes. All of the pictures of this Nissan GT-R build are here.

There's only so much you can do with a car as hideous as the GTR. Looks ok I guess.

Makes it look even boxier than it already is. There is a comparison pic of a GT3 and an R35 GTR on the board (both white). You can see how wide the GTR is compared to the Porsche. IMHO, the Porsche might be slower but it sure as hell loos sleeker and sexier.

Yeah, the GT-R is a HUGE car next to just about everything.

It dwarfs the yellow F355 next to it in the 3rd pic.

Stock GTR looks better. Vorsteiner should stick to Bimmers.

Love the GT-R not crazy about the kit. the front looks very aggressive and the side profile doesn't match that aggressive looks, it looks miss matched. Now do a wide body kit along with that and some vents on the side of the car to spice it up then yes i am with you...

Stock is best for The GT-R

HRE's would look much better in Matte Charcoal

Way too busy in front. The stock GT-R bumper + a CF lip is as far as I would go (any more just seems excessive and unnecessary). The body lines on this car are already aggressive enough as it is.

Hey, who knew Vorsteiner could make shitty looking aftermarket kits?

Yeah, like running circles around an M3. Function over form.
