Capturing the essence of the original Skyline GT-R: Wald Black Bison Nissan GT-R

The current R35 Nissan GT-R is a car that is admired and adored by many. This is a car that could basically take on a 997 Porsche 911 Turbo and many other current supercars on most roads and win. The other thing about the R35 GT-R no longer carries the 'Skyline' tag. It isn't a Skyline anymore unlike the previous R32, R33, R34 Skyline GT-Rs. But Nissan is adamant that this GT-R still has the same heritage as the cars mentioned above in that it shares the same sort of all-wheel drive chassis (albeit with more technology). I believe it does as it follows the same overall look as the earlier GT-Rs. but if you really want to cement the heritage completely, I believe you have to get Wald International's Nissan GT-R Sports Line Black Bison Edition body kit.

Wald International is a custom tuner that somehow dabbles in every type of car. From the Toyota Alphard MPVs to Mercedes Benzes to Nissan GT-Rs. You can also stare at amazement as they also body kit Rolls Royce Phantoms and Maseratis without fear. But their Nissan GT-R Sports Line Black Bison Edition is very tasteful in my opinion. It captures the essence of the first Nissan Skyline GT-R, the KPGC-10 from the 1970s with that simple black rear wheel arch extension and it works. The R35 GT-R looks like a modernized version of the 1st Skyline GT-R because of this. It links the first with the current one and I love Wald International for coming up with such a simple styling tweak that totally works wonders to the car.

Wald International's Black Bison body kit (I still can't seem to fathom why they call their tuning range 'Black Bison') for the GT-R consists of a carbon fiber front bumper spoiler with a grille cover/front lip/side duct/under cover and fog lamps, FRP Side skirts, carbon fiber rear diffuser, carbon fiber boot spoiler, carbon rear wing flap, FRP rear over fender and 22inch Portofino rims in matte black finish.

No. This body kit isn't all that new. It has been around for a while but I've just realized how complete this Nissan GT-R looks with it. Sometimes a tuner that does over the top most of the time can come up with a total gem.
