2021 SEMA Top 5 Car: Garage Active Carbon Fiber Nissan Skyline GT-R R32

2021 SEMA Top 5 Car: Garage Active Carbon Fiber Nissan Skyline GT-R R32

This was probably one of the most talked about builds inside the Toyo Treadpass at SEMA 2021, and for good reason. This isn’t some elaborate wrap job or carbon fiber overlay - the entirety of this R32 GT-R’s exterior is made up of Garage Active carbon fiber panels, and so is most of the interior to match. The weight savings are real! In addition to looking insanely cool, the entire car only weighs 1,375 kg (3,031 lbs).

When you consider that the 2.8L HKS stroker RB engine makes 1,000+ horsepower, and it uses an OS Giken OS-88 sequential transmission, this might be the ultimate street Godzilla build. The car was built by Garage Active in Japan, but it was just so damn good that they had to bring it to display in the Toyo Treadpass. Other than the awesome carbon fiber pieces, lots of custom and one-off pieces separate this build from the rest.

Did I mention the awesome custom wheels? I could go through each of the quality parts on this build like the custom full titanium exhaust or the HKS turbo setup, but what can I say that “1,000 horsepower carbon fiber R32 GT-R” doesn’t already say? This thing is badass. What’s even more impressive is that a red carbon fiber version of this car exists in Japan.
