The final details on Zele International's carbon-fiber bodykit and power enhancement for the Nissan GT-R have been released, with the tuning firm announcing that it plans to start taking orders for the completed car globally at the end of March. On display at this weekend’s 2009 Tokyo AutoSalon, it will be Zele’s first complete car and will thus be known as the Zele R35 GT-R ‘Complete Edition'.
Just eight customers will be able to get the complete car from Zele, while others will have to order individual parts from the tuner’s website. This exclusivity means pricing won’t be cheap, with the basic car listed at ¥18,880,000 (approximately $205,938). This exceeds Nissan’s own GT-R SpecV
, which is listed at ¥15,750,000 ($171,781) and is already almost double the price of the standard GT-R
On the outside, the Zele GT-R comes with a custom paintjob, a dry carbon-fiber front aero bumper, carbon-fiber side mirrors, a carbon-fiber roof and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler. These parts will be exclusive for the Zele Complete Edition. Other enhancements include carbon-fiber side skirts, a carbon fiber rear under spoiler, a carbon-fiber bonnet with NACA ducts, and carbon fiber front fender ducts. On top of all this, there will also be a new front grille, a new intake cover and a new radiator shroud, all made from carbon-fiber.
In terms of performance mods, the ECU for the GT-R will be upgraded to produce around 550hp (410kW). Additionally, a titanium muffler and rear differential oil cooler will be available as a package, while custom Zele alloy-wheels will be optional.
Finally, upgraded brakes, Recaro bucket seats swathed in Alcantara and a height-adjustable suspension conversion kit top off the mods list. The entire package comes with a 20,000km warranty and can be ordered in both U.S. spec LHD models and European spec LHD models.
