The R's Tuning's BenSopra GT-R visit SP Engineering for a tune + Photoshoot



Posted Image

For all you curious people; Yes, this is the BenSopra GT-R that will be featured in the new Fast and the Furious 6. Watch out for the movie release on May 24th, 2013!

The Rís Tuning GT-R is built to compete in some of the most well known road courses around the world. Ricky (owner for The Rís Tuning) and his team redesigned the entire factory cooling system to endure each lap session. This was only possible with the amount of area gained with the BenSopra aero package. Lastly, an updated tuning session was needed by SP Engineering before any vehicle testing begins. Proper Calibration of the ECM was done on 100 octane as it is known to burn cooler than your average 91 octane found at your local pump. This will offer more power but more importantly, reliability and head room as your fuel temperature rises. Stay tuned as The Rís Tuning has a lot more planned in the future which can be found here.

It was wrapped in blue for the movie.
look nice
Amazing, beautiful....Question, Does the exhaust come out of that large black thing where the rear license plate would normally go? Also noticed just behind the front driver side tire a hole in the side skirt. Is that for a dump valve for the exhaust or something?

Thanks, I'm just curious about that stuff...
I'm in love, I saw a picture of that kit a week ago and wanted it instantly. I love the aero fenders and I'm assuming that the rear wing is part of the rear structure? How does that change the balance of the car vs having it right over the trunk?
Looks a bit ricy. Even for fast and furious its a bit much. Could be the color but I think it is over done. Would have looked better with a Wald or tommy kaira kit if they wanted something different.
Beast!

That is way too much and the GT-R in those pics looks way too ricey. I'm sorry but I had to say it.
Poor GT-R. That wing is hilarious. Please just say no.

It could probably be used for racing, you know like it was built for?

Poor GT-R. That wing is hilarious. Please just say no.

Why, the wing is functional and will be put to use when the owner takes it to the track.

There are far too many haters in this thread. I could understand if this car was going to be purely show but this car wasn't built for that, the owner is clearly going to race the shit out of this car, and all of the aero and cooling proves that.
Are there any high res versions of these pictures?
