Earlier this year, our wholesale customer and friend Fury Automotive from New York came to us looking to build a World-Class GT-R for SEMA 2016. Having experience creating quite a few popular SEMA cars in the past, the guys at Fury knew that we could help them achieve their goal. Almost immediately following the release at Tokyo Auto Salon 2016, the guys at Fury fell for the Kamikaze-R Version 2 "Super Sonic" aero kit from Varis.


As the North American importer and distributor of Varis parts, we worked with them to source the first production Kamikaze-R 2 Super Sonic kit for Fury's special build. The kit features front and rear wide fenders, wide side skirts, and vented front and rear bumpers. Fury also opted for Varis' Version 2 vented carbon fiber hood, and their new swan-neck carbon fiber GT Wing which includes a special trunk mounting base / reinforcement plate to help support the high amount of downforce supplied by the large, 1800mm wing plane.


With the desire for a very unique, world-class SEMA build, Fury consulted with us for one of our popular custom interiors. Real carbon fiber and personalized Recaro Japan seats give it a premium look and feel.


Not wanting to have a GT-R that only looked the part, the guys at Fury added an impressive list of performance parts, from power to suspension, including JCR's complete carbon fiber intake manifold, as well as our gold big throttle body kit, a collaboration with AT Power.




For suspension, the guys at Fury opted for Aragosta's Type-SA PnP coilover kit, a full coilover that retains the OEM damper setting switch's functionality. They also added on Aragosta's front air cup lifter system to help prevent any damage to the beautiful Varis carbon front racing diffuser.


Modification list:

The car is currently on display in Las Vegas at SEMA as a feature in Toyo's "Tread Pass" area. We'd love to hear everyone's comments, and we'll continue to post up behind the scenes photos of the build process!

Do the gruppe m intakes require a tune? Looks amazing!
They're designed to work with the stock ECU configuration, but like any intake, a tune can't hurt.

It's a pretty well thought out system, with front air ducts to help feed air to boxes. Like all of Gruppe-M's parts, the carbon quality is also stellar.

Varis fenders are starting to venture into the absurdity...and not in a good way.

Thank you- i always liked them but also wasnt sure if theyd clear the top secret coolant tank- i have that same set up.
Sorry @johnnypbmx, for some reason the quote button wouldn't let me post my replies.

You're welcome for the pics. The entire set up with the Top Secret coolant reservoir, oil catch tank, and Gruppe-M intake setup fit perfectly within the engine bay.

If you have a pic of your current engine bay setup, I'd love to check it out. Small detailed parts really make a big difference in the bay and some people get really creative with their layouts.

I would say the whole thing is starting to venture into absurdity. It makes me wonder who actually buys these kits. They're so extreme.
Some guys like the more subtle, clean, simple designs while others like the aggressive and bold styles.

Just like anything else, some people love it, white others hate it. It's all up to personal opinion. However, in terms of how extreme this aero kit is depends on the context of how the car is used. This particular kit was specifically designed for track use. Street cars can run this kit but we don't recommend it hahaha. It would be quite extreme for the streets.

The one thing that I can confidently say is that Varis aero kits aren't just for the aesthetics. Their kits are widely used in Japan by many tuner shops and race teams so their aero is actually designed to function. The vents and ducts aren't fake ducts for show, they were engineered to have a purpose. Varis typically works closely with some of the top shops and race teams to produce their aero parts. They get feedback, data, and ideas from race car drivers that test their parts on infamous tracks like Tsukuba and Fuji Speedway.

They do offer other kit options that are more tame for street use. This just happens to be one of the most aggressive kits they offer for race use which is why we chose this kit to showcase for SEMA. I hope that clears things up a bit ;)
