DRAGON BLOOD
VILNER NISSAN GT-R


Nissan

American’s love taking a factory produced car and adding their own personal touches to make the car their own. No matter the value of the factory car thousands of dollars can be spent on that individualization.

Here is the Middle East the same attention to detail is catching on. So for those of you who own a Nissan GT-R here’s an idea for you. Villner, a tuner and car custom designer was recently commissioned to spec up a Nissan GT-R. The customer wanted a nonstandardised execution of his racer, a car which didn’t distinguish up to this point from the other GT-Rs in the auto market.

The Vilner studio decided to create an idea which aligns elements of a dragon - it is the year of the dragon, the customer is Asian, the car is exotic and sporty. The project was immediately approved and Vilner started working on the interior design.

The designer drew a dragon, which was embroidered on the car’s roof, and in the trunk, which was covered with Alcantara. The body of the dragon was transmitted by embroideries inside, winding around the seats, and passing through the center console. The effect was reinforced by the relief effects resulting from the combination of leather and embroidery. Every single element of the dragon body was hand-drawn by the designer personally on a pattern inside.

Vilner remained faithful to his own pure style, and used black as a base, combining it with black Alcantara and black carbon leather. In the same style is also the dashboard, the door panels and the black console. The red edges emphasize the shape of the seats and correspond with the dragon at the roof and the red decorative seams on the dashboard. The steering wheel and gear shifter are made of carbon; some minor details were painted in red chrome. The red elements are not random. Red is the original color of the car, which received a white mat foiling finish in addition. The exhaust pipes are made of titanium, and the original ones were increased from 440whp up to 530whp.

If you put dragons on your GT-R be sure to send some pictures over to us at Auto Trader Towers.
