Back in 2010 we had this idea to remix the GT-R shift knob with carbon fiber replacing plastic, and more exotic upholstery like Alcantara, high-end leathers and custom stitching. We were the first in the world to do it. Since then we’ve done quite a few crazy interiors, a ton of custom carbon fiber parts (50+ various pieces throughout the car), and a lot of other wild, one-off stuff. They are slow to make, all hand made and since they are custom they can’t be kept in stock. Various other hand made carbon fiber interior pieces however we do try to keep in stock for special projects.
For our carbon fiber interior pieces, we take factory Nissan parts and convert the outer surfaces to real carbon fiber. The process is much different, and much more OEM looking than the tape-on carbon pieces typically sold as it maintains the stock thickness of the parts, thus retaining the OEM feel of the buttons and switches on the steering wheel switch plate, mirror control and triple switch/hazard panels, for example. This service is offered for virtually any part on the GT-R, with the most often converted pieces being the dash vents, steering wheel switch plate and door handles.
We wanted to feature a small gallery of several of the interiors we’ve either completed in-house or for which we’ve supplied parts.

Earlier this year, our wholesale customer and friend Fury Automotive from New York came to us looking to build a World-Class GT-R for SEMA 2016. Having experience creating quite a few popular SEMA cars in the past, the guys at Fury knew that we could help them achieve their goal. Almost immediately following the release at Tokyo Auto Salon 2016, the guys at Fury fell for the Kamikaze-R Version 2 “Super Sonic” aero kit from Varis.

As the North American importer and distributor of Varis parts, we worked with them to source the first production Kamikaze-R 2 Super Sonic kit for Fury’s special build. The kit features front and rear wide fenders, wide side skirts, and vented front and rear bumpers. Fury also opted for Varis’ Version 2 vented carbon fiber hood, and their new swan-neck carbon fiber GT Wing which includes a special trunk mounting base / reinforcement plate to help support the high amount of downforce supplied by the large, 1800mm wing plane.
With the desire for a very unique, world-class SEMA build, Fury consulted with us for one of our popular custom interiors. Real carbon fiber and personalized Recaro Japan seats give it a premium look and feel.
Not wanting to have a GT-R that only looked the part, the guys at Fury added an impressive list of performance parts, from power to suspension, including JCR’s complete carbon fiber intake manifold, as well as our gold big throttle body kit, a collaboration with AT Power.
For suspension, the guys at Fury opted for Aragosta’s Type-SA PnP coilover kit, a full coilover that retains the OEM damper setting switch’s functionality. They also added on Aragosta’s front air cup lifter system to help prevent any damage to the beautiful Varis carbon front racing diffuser.
