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.

The R35 Nissan GT-R may not be the most powerful or the fastest, but you can guarantee it’s the king of speed and style with it’s COR Wheels and Kings Performance upgrades!

BMW X5M w/COR Bayonet Forged Wheels

Contradictions.

The BMW X5M is a vehicle of contradictions. It’s not supposed to be that fast; it’s not supposed to handle that well; it’s not supposed to look that good. But that’s exactly what it does, and does extremely well with its new COR Bayonet forged wheels.

Traditional SUVs are not supposed to be fast, handle well, or be proficient on the racetrack at all. Instead, they have been off-road capable people-carriers until BMW and other automakers began to change the mindset of the automotive world. The German SUV was the first all-wheel drive model to be tuned by the in-house M-performance division at BMW and boasts impressive performance and styling, especially with its COR Bayonet forged wheels.

Powering the BMW performance SUV is a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 engine that sends 555 horsepower to each of the lightweight forged wheels. It’s even a dynamic handler from the factory, with its suspension optimized for high-speed corners instead of all-terrain situations. But it’s the COR Bayonet wheels that really allow this Bavarian-tuned SUV to show its true colors on and off the track.

COR wheels installed a set of their Bayonet forged wheels on the BMW X5M in a massive 22 x 10 front and rear setup to expand its footprint as much as possible. The forged aluminum alloy construction of the Bayonet wheels help to reduce weight at the wheel hub and improve overall vehicle performance while retaining unmatched strength and durability characteristics.

Not only do the new 22-inch COR Bayonet forged wheels improve the overall performance of the BMW X5M, but they also give it a powerful, more athletic look with their concave design while their Gloss Black finish complements the stunning blue exterior paint.

A traditional SUV isn’t supposed to look this good; drive this fast; or handle this well, but you’ll be more than happy to drive this contradiction with COR Bayonet forged wheels.
