"A full-carbon GT-R that proves less weight is a great strength in racing."
Amuse, one of Japan's most renowned aftermarkets tuners, created a number of potent machines over the years, most of them featuring powerful engines and lightweight bodies. But when the company introduced its version of the R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R, Amuse had created a real monster. The car was called the Carbon R, and it was arguably the fastest GT-R conversion made to date.
The exterior of the Carbon R looked radically different from the stock car, retaining only the rooftop and pillars. Every other body panel was swapped for one made from carbon fiber. The interior was gutted, and the windows (except for the front widescreen) were replaced with lightweight polycarbonate.
The body was widened by about 2.0 inches on each side and graced with a number of aerodynamic parts, including a new underbody shaped to generate downforce. Further weight reduction measures included deleting the secondary driveshaft, making the F-AWL (Front engine, All Wheel Drive) car into an FR (Front engine, Rear drive) car. The total result of these changes accounted for a remarkable 500 kg in weight reduction, allowing the performance coupe to tip the scales at a lean 1,120 kg.
In terms of speed, the Carbon R was a force to be reckoned with. It set lap records at racetracks around Japan, and was a very strong argument for the principles of "less is more" when it came to high-speed performance.
The Carbon R is an R34 Skyline that is completely fabricated from carbon fiber. Due to this, it has one of the best brakes in the game, with the braking power almost equivalent of a Formula 1 car. It also has quick acceleration due to it's light weight and powerful engine, and is capable of outrunning a JGTC racecar without a sweat. The turbo, however, tends to lose pressure in the high RPM range in the high gears. It is still quick and nimble on its feet, though. For best performance, medium racing tires should be equipped, since sport tires cannot provide enough traction for the immense power. The car will wear them out very quickly, though.
The car utilizes wheels from RAYS ENGINEERING, an R1 TITAN exhaust, and an ARC intercooler. It doesn't utilize headlights, though, as they have been replaced by carbon fiber panels.
