Nissan R35 GTR
Nissan's latest attempt at a super car started production in 2007 and is still going.
About this creation
This is my 3rd Nissan Skyline build (even though Nissan dropped the Skyline name, it's still the latest model in a long line of cars bearing that name).
Firstly I'd like to thank Alexander Paschoaletto whos excellent rendition of this vehicle was very inspirational to me while I was building this. I'd also like to thank Cars Lover who's great build of this car was also very inspiring for me. You guys have both built the best R35s on mocpages. I think my build differs from both of yours enough for it to not be classed as copying, but any similarities should be taken as compliments to you both :-)
Of course I referred to many images I found on the web ( mainly this one ) as well as the 1:24 scale die-cast model belonging to my son :-)

Now, my build...

I tried very hard to reproduce the sleek, yet aggressive lines of the real vehicle. Some of those angles are almost impossible to replicate in Lego form though. I tried my best and am quite happy with the end result.


Building a functioning bonnet that matches up with the angled headlights and also left enough room for the engine below was a slight challenge.


I found a use for 2 more of those red clikits! I still have a bag full of them though...
Also it seems that some of my white is starting to get discoloured already :(


What's the point of a nice car if you don't have a sweet sound system? There are two speakers here on the rear parcel shelf, as well as one more in each door.


The engine. The previous 3 GTRs used the RB26DETT engine, an inline 6 cylinder 2.6L twin turbo engine. The R35 however features VR38DETT. This V6 engine is 3.8L and also has twin turbos, producing 545hp in the latest editions.


The interior features bucket seats, handbrake and gear shift levers, pedals, steering wheel and gauges. Not that you can really see much in this photo...


The rear again, showing off the grille at the bottom.


Angled shot. The bricks look quite yellowed in this photo but I assure you they are not that bad!

thanks for getting inspiration on my car, I really appreciate your kind words. About the car, everything is pretty well built, I loved the rear mainly, but the front is also very good. Your solution for the side intake was also a singularity - I tried to replicate it and failed. But you made it! great job and keep building!
