Vilner Nissan GT-R Dragon-Themed

Vilner, the small Bulgarian aftermarket firm that could, has unleashed pictures of its newest creation based on the almighty Nissan GT-R that was custom built for a Chinese businessman with a large car collection.

The legendary creature, which in Chinese folklore symbolizes power and influence, among other things, is portrayed in a black and red design on the interior headliner and the inner side of the boot.

The same two colors are used on the rest of the cabin that was completely redone in black Alcantara and black carbon leather with red piping and stiching, from the dashboard to the door panels and the front and rear seats.

Furthermore, the redesigned steering wheel and gear shifter are adorned in carbon fiber accents, while certain parts inside such as the door trims and air vent surrounds are painted in chrome red.

On the outside, Vilner dressed the GT-R in a matte white foil wrap, while changes under the hood, which include a titanium exhaust system, are said to help increase the car’s output from “440whp” to “530whp”.

The fallout over the archipelago dispute has been widening between Tokyo and Beijing since Japan decided to bypass China and buy the territories from private investors.

This comes as Washington and Tokyo agreed to put a second anti-missile defence radar in Japan, claiming it’ll be focused on deterring North Korean aggression. But James Corbett, editor of the Corbett Report website who lives in Japan thinks the system will be deployed for all the wrong reasons.
