2012 Vilner Nissan GT-R

The 2012 Vilner Nissan GT-R is a special edition of this largely popular Japanese sports car. It is designed by a small tuning company in Bulgaria, and was created at the behest of a businessman from China.

Vilner was asked to make a car that stood out in the crowd, but one that paid homage to Chinese culture.

*Stock specs

Nissan’s own version of the GT-R already pumps out 440 horsepower, but Vilner and the client wanted the special edition to be even more powerful than that. Among the notable changes to the original car is the introduction of an exhaust system made from titanium, which delivers a substantial power boost.

When put together along with the other modifications, the result is that the car’s total output increased to at least 530 horsepower.

Engine & Performance


Although the original GT-R is not subtle in its appearance, Vilner decided to make this special edition even more striking. The decision to go for an interior design based on that most familiar of Chinese culture, the dragon. This symbol represents great power in Chinese mythology, and both the seats and the inner lining of the trunk have representations of a dragon in red and black.


Vilner introduced an all-new design for the gear shift – which, as with the original car, is based on a dual-clutch, automatic transmission system, these, along with the steering wheel, has been accented in carbon fiber trim to emphasize the car’s sporting capability.

A number of components, such as the trims on the doors, have been painted red, as has the stitching and piping on the seats. This is a contrast to the black leather that dominate the rest of the cabin.
