KING Tariq and the R35 Nissan GT-R w/COR Encor Wheels

A smooth style for Godzilla.

It’s nice to be the king, and this R35 Nissan GT-R is king of performance and style with its super clean look and COR Encor forged wheels. The GT-R may have unbelievable performance and power figures thanks to that potent engine beneath the hood, but its smooth and clean style is what really helps to steal the show.

Built by Kings Performance, this Nissan GT-R owned by longtime customer, Tariq, was given a fresh dose of power, performance, and prestige thanks to an array of modifications that set it apart from the average GT-R.

Things start out with a lightweight and aerodynamic body kit that drastically alters the look of the GT-R. A Seibon GT-style carbon fiber hood reduces weight and helps dissipate heat from the engine while a Top Racing front end creates a unique and aerodynamically-optimized front fascia. Instead of the large factory rear spoiler, the GT-R was equipped with a subtle RevoZport carbon fiber trunklid with spoiler lip and lower diffuser from Wald to increase downforce for better overall performance at high speeds.

From there, the Nissan GT-R by Kings Performance starts to get really interesting. Godzilla was given a new set of COR Wheels that complete the clean look of the super car. The Encor wheels from the Concave Series were chosen for the GT-R with their high-strength forged aluminum alloy construction. Each wheel was installed with a concave and step-lip design that creates the appearance of muscle and power, and given tinted clear centers, polished outer lips, and silver inners along with OEM GT-R caps. The Encor wheels were fitted in a wide 21 x 10 front and 21 x 11 rear setup with 265/35/21 front and 305/30/21 performance tires for a dynamic footprint. To complete the stance, Kings Performance installed a new Cobb Coilover sleeve kit. Cor Wheels Gtr

The upgraded exterior and wheel fitment created the perfect platform for an modified and tuned engine. The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 was given a big boost of power thanks to a variety of modifications installed by Kings Performance. Air is sucked in through a KP three-inch Intake kit, boosted through both of the stock turbochargers and spit out through the new exhaust system comprised of a TiTek 90mm SS downpipe, Cobb 90mm SS midpipe, and AAM 90mm SS sport exhaust with titanium tips. A Forge wastegate actuator, ID1000cc injector set, FBM 270 lph Intank pump, and Cobb Access with TCM help boost power all the way up to 623 whp and 670 lb-ft. of torque using racing fuel. What’s that mean? A 10.5 @ 137mph on M/T Drag Radials quarter-mile run!

Inside, things have been modified for performance. A set of Bride seats help to keep occupants held in place along with new Takata seat belts. To ensure safety, a TMS four-point roll bar was installed to finish off the interior upgrades.

Nissan GT-R Featuring COR Encor Forged Wheels

New shoes for Godzilla.

The Nissan GT-R rocked the super car world with unrivaled performance and a Nürburgring lap time that blew the competition out of the water. The Specialized Performance Nissan GT-R is even more potent; packing an 800+ horsepower engine and aerodynamic bodywork. But, the real secret to the car’s success are the COR Encor wheels.

The new COR Encor wheels are more than just your average forged wheel. The Encor wheels undergo a unique weight reduction process that decreases the amount of rotational mass at the wheel hub without sacrificing strength. Each Encor wheel is subjected to  a thorough stress testing process to ensure the wheel is capable of handling the incredible forces exerted by high-horsepower cars.

The exterior of the Nissan GT-R was given a number of carbon fiber aerodynamic additions, but the highlight of the super car is the COR Encor wheels. Each wheel has been given a hand-brushed face with tinted clear coat finish and polished outer lip. This finish complements the contrasting white paint and bare carbon fiber bodywork, but also makes the Encor wheels stand out as the centerpiece of the GT-R. The front axle is fitted with a pair of 20x10s with 265/35/21 performance tires, while the rear features a wider set of 21x11s and 305/30/21 shoes.

What makes the fitment unique is that the Encor wheels can undoubtedly handle the upgraded power produced by the Specialized Performance GT-R. The 3.8-liter V-6 engine has been upgraded with the full range of HKS products, and a custom-built full exhaust system for an astonishing 817 horsepower at the wheels.

The Specialized Performance Nissan GT-R is every bit at home on the track as it is on the boulevard. While its immense power may shock some, its stunning COR Encor wheels will always remain as the center of attention.
