#8409 - Nissan GT-R (R35) Tokyo Smart Driver



HPI's exclusive limited-edition 1/43 scale die-cast model line-up now features the iconic Japanese supercar, the Nissan GT-R. This is the latest version of the legendary Skyline series of sports cars, code-named the R35. Although popular with sports car fans around the world because of its low cost compared to exotic brands from Europe and the fact it has remained a rear-wheel drive car, the Skyline GT-R's popularity exploded in the mainstream when it started appearing in hugely popular video games, comics and movies since the mid-1990's. The Skyline models have always showcased the latest driving technologies that Nissan engineers could fit into a road-going car, and the GT-R continues this tradition, with a twin-turbocharged 3.8 litre V6, four-wheel drive, rear-mounted transmission, a top speed over 310kph (193mph) and 0-60mph time under 3.8 seconds. As proof of its supercar status, Nissan engineers and drivers in May 2008 set a lap time of 7 minutes 29 seconds on the famed Nürburgring - just one second slower than a 400,000 Euro Porsche Carrera GT. We are proud to present the Nissan GT-R in a variety of actual production colours. These models are extremely limited in production numbers because of the special high-detail resin used for the moulds. Worldwide quantities will be in the low hundreds. HPI precision die-cast metal models are 1/43 scale, a convenient size for any desk or display case. Incredible attention has been paid to make the shape of cars as true to scale as possible. Fine exterior details like radiators, disc brakes, brake calipers, mirrors, wings, exhaust, headlight buckets, mirrors, tow hooks and radio antennae combine to make the models extremely realistic. Each car has a fully painted and detailed interior, steering wheel, and dashboard. These models come mounted to a display platform that includes a clear plastic protective case and the car can be easily removed from the platform for individual display. Every Nissan GT-R model is made in a special resin material that allows our designers to precisely replicate not just every curve and shape of the original car, but every opening such as door/bonnet lines and vent or grille. Compare a resin model with a normal die-cast metal and you will quickly see the difference! Each model is also sprayed with the actual production paint used on the real car, to give you an authentic scale reproduction. Our resin models are extremely fragile and the wheels do not rotate, so the model should be kept mounted on its display stand. Remember: HPI resin die-cast models are made in extremely limited quantities, once gone they will never be available again.
