Convertible Nissan GT-R


For those of you who haven't heard of Newport Convertible Engineering before thats probably because it's slipped through our radar due to relatively small projects. But since the announcement of the Convertible GT-R and their plans to send a few over to the Middle East they have managed to capture our attention.

Based in California, Newport Engineering focus on personalizing top end cars for customers who have a passion for standing out from a crowd. Previous projects include the beheading of a Range Rover and a drop-topped Porsche Cayenne. Judging by the images released its most likely to be a material roof, rather than a metal folding roof.
Which leads me to my next question, with the Nissan GT-R being such a finely tuned thoroughbred, could this cause some issues with the chassis and compromise the superior handling performance the GT-R is best known for? I'm not a mechanical engineer but surely they will need to strengthen and improve the cars rigidity once the lid has been removed. Not a lot of technical details have been released at this stage so lets not speculate too much.

Nevertheless its still exciting stuff! Three different designs are said to be produced, 100 units for the USA, 50 units for Europe and 30 units for the GCC. Prices will start at $29,900
