Looks different and a bit futuristic.

Maybe have to see it in flesh.

I never liked the Wald R35 on pictures, but at the TAS09 I saw it in flesh and loved it streght away.

The interior must be cool in red.

Not convinced. Agreed the front end is too fussy, but also im still miffed by the need for the ugly over fender. There must be a more elegant way of running a larger rear offset!

Front ends OK but the wheel-arch extensions, old skool GTR stylee (TM) or not don't work, nor the side skirts and wheels.

The wing isn't bad if you want a bigger wing. It would concern me bolting a kit to the R35 - Nissan apparently spent a lot of time in the wind tunnel with the car (hence low cd etc) have any of these kits had any development beyond styling?

The older GTRs aero was/is much worse (shown by the N1 mods for one) so I can conceive that aftermarket stuff could easily be as good as, if not better than, the stock items.

Wonder how much lighter the wheels are...

Basicly what I can't understand is why all these R35 bodykits come with simple, ugly wheel arch over fenders for the rear . . . you can get for 200$ hundreds of rear wide fenders (no simple arc) for RX7, Silvia , Skyline, Chaser ex . . . and they let the car look factory afterwards. Thought you need to mold them and repaint the body after . . . . but what the heck, for the price the R35 GTR parts go, that must be the last thing to worry.

Best kit is the GT1 R35 wide body from Nismo . . sadlynot for sale.
