Königseder gives some tuning treatment to the R35 Nissan GT-R

If the R35 Nissan GT-R in factory form just isn’t enough machine for you then Austrian tuning firm Königseder will help out with a new styling package along with some performance upgrades for the top-model Nissan. To most it will just look like your standard GT-R with a McLaren orange paint job, but don’t be fooled as this Godzilla has a new ECU tune installed.

The upgraded ECU takes the standard 3.8-litre V6 engine – which in standard form produces 485hp – up to a whopping 572hp. In addition to the reworked ECU, a new air filter a full Akrapovic exhaust system are included. In terms of performance 0 to 100kph figures haven’t been provided but the car will be able to hit 200km/h in just 9.8 seconds.

The GT-R also receives a revised suspension set-up with an adjustable coilover kit from KW and new 21-inch HRE alloy wheels shod in Yokohama Advan Sport rubber size 245/35 up front and 285/30 at the rear.

Body changes are fairly limited consisting of a new and more dramatic front lip spoiler and matching side skirts.
