Featured in Option Magazine and in the Gran Turismo game, this is the Amuse Carbon R. Amuse utilized dry carbon components to shed all extra weight off of this car. Mr Tanabe told Option magazine that “It’s unmistaken that the RB26DETT is one of the greatest pieces of machinery ever built. However, the chassis that carries one of Nissan’s most coveted creation weighs in at over 3300 pounds; it serves as a great opportunity to shave some weight. By doing so, 120% of the potential of the RB26 can be extracted because of the ultra lightweight GT-R body. This is the dream machine that I have been lusting for a long time.” Carbon panels were only the start to this cars weight saving efforts as the 4WD was removed to make the car rear wheel drive and any engine parts that could be shaved down was. All of these things combined brought the car’s weight to an unbelievable 2,400 pounds! (A stock R34 weighs 3,400 lbs) Do not be fooled, this car was not meant to be a light weight race car. One look in to the interior shows a highly tuned street car look. Despite the extreme exterior driven by weight savings, the engine is very modestly tuned. The goal Mr. Tanabe stated for this car was to see how fast this GT-R can be with a moderately tuned engine inside an extremely light chassis.
