Showstopper: Liberty Walk Gt-r

The Liberty Walk and TRA Kyoto collaboration has definitely spawned some pretty wild cars over the last year. And while everyone might be intrigued to see how their ducktailed and wide-bodied Ferrari 458 will look like in the flesh, the two companies have gone and pulled yet another new car out of the bag! Dressed up with signature bolted-on overfenders, and wearing race-inspired front and rear bumpers and a new style Super GT wing, this is one R35 GT-R you might want to check out when it makes its debut at SEMA this year on the Toyo Tires booth. What do you all think?

can anyone just rock up to these shops with bad Japanese and ask to look around?  I know its a place of business, but do they entertain people who just want to look?

Looks good but I don't like the fact that it's pretty much an aesthetic modification. The idea that putting on all that bodywork will make it weigh more than a standard GT-R, excluding other modifications, frightens me.

 

For me, aggressive modifications look good because they improve performance, which is obviously pretty cool, without the performance gain it's just a bit childish in my mind.

Ahhhh... I'll buy it at a high price!

 

Or I WOULD if I had the money. This is the first GT-R to capture my optical attention! Where's the 1920 x 1200 wallpaper?

The color is gorgeous (similar to Leyton House) but I gotta ask... is this just a lot of plastic bodywork hung over the original body? It looks great, but looking great and performing great are two different things.

pretty mainstream (lookwise) - still love the j.l. quote

It clearly has two tyres to each side, doors and an engine. As such is not original and I feel I have the right to Judge others work without clearly understanding the style and mechanics that are at play.

I think Liberty Walk has too much money.

I'd like it better in black, but it's still killer.

I prefer the Ben Sopra kit. This is nice, but that's just my opinion

Damn, that Super GT style wing.

Hot damn. More riveted-on flares, big wings, and white letter tires. I believe the term, "played-out" comes into effect here.

I have no interest on whether its the fastest r35 GT-R out there, but I am interested in seeing this beast rolling around Japan in a pack of Liberty Walk's Lambos, M3's, and that 458 would just be the icing on the cake. I'm all for it.

Doesn't it just look like a slightly more 'normal' Bensopra GT-R? Lovely nonetheless but not 100% original don't you think?

 @Llalandeusse  LB made this because they wanna make the car cooler in another way, but it doesn't mean they have to to make it in effect in performance. I don't think both of performance and appearance have to stand together because you have to understand someone just wanna make the car cooler in their own way but do not mean to upgrade the performance by the body kit.

 @Llalandeusse Who on earth would put all that stuff on an unmodified GT-R only to add net weight? Use your brain!

 @GregSampson Well yes it will be FRP and yes it will be fitted on the body work. Isn't most aftermarket aero like that? I'm sure bits like the side skirts will replace stock items though

 @TarmacTerrorist So you feel there is no difference between this and a ratty Citroen 2CV, As such, by posting your comment here you agree to be subjected to beration and ridicule. :-)

Conversely, some people have too much time. And sometimes, not enough class. :-)

Are you complaining? There's quite a lot more of that where this came from. By that, I mean both from this site and from the car's country of origin.
