Jose “J-Jay” Flores is the proud owner of this 2009 Nissan GT-R. What makes his GT-R different from so many others is that it is fitted with a Charge Speed Japan widebody kit with an APR GTC-500 wing. You may have seen it at a past SEMA Show dressed in one of its various liveries. It was first known as the Falken Tire GT-R, then gained more popularity dressed in Highlighter Yellow and gray with black, taking center stage in SEMA’s Voodoo Ride booth. Since then, the wrap has been removed and it can be seen in its current color of red.

The car was initially bought to be a daily driver, so the first modifications it received were aesthetic-focused. As a result, the car is equipped with Air Lift Performance 3P bags over Bilstein shocks. It rests on the ground with help from a 5-gallon seamless air tank and VIAIR 440c air compressors. The GT-R sits pretty on a set of Savini SV71 3-piece forged wheels, 20×11.5 up front with a negative 3-degree offset and 20×12.5 in the rear with a negative 66-degree offset. They are, of course, wrapped in Falken tires.

Not only does the GT-R have style, it also packs power and performance. The car puts down an impressive 700 wheel horsepower thanks to the VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. Each turbo has a Turbosmart blowoff valve and the engine contains many parts from Speed By Design, including cold-air intakes fitted with K&N filters, a Super Race front-mount intercooler and an intercooler piping kit. Supplying fuel to this monster is a set of DeatschWerks 1300cc injectors — it runs a Visconti Tuning E85 Flex Fuel kit and is tuned by an EcuTek program.

The engine breathes through an HKS Legamax exhaust with HKS downpipes and a mid-pipe, while the engine is backed by a Jacks Transmission Drag 800/GR6 transmission. The car’s stopping power comes from a set of Brembo brake calipers with Endless brake pads.

Since this GT-R is still regularly driven, the interior is comfortable and includes racing-inspired safety features like RECARO seats and a Cipher 5-point harness hooked to a universal harness bar. The car is decked out in carbon-fiber interior trim and has a Pioneer AV head unit with two 8-inch subwoofers.

See this GT-R on the Polo Field at WestWorld of Scottsdale during the Future Collector Car Show, held January 22 as part of the 2023 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction. Keep up with the FCCS on Instagram at @FutureCollectorCarShow
