It belongs to our customer, Alan. It has won various prizes as well as wooing the hearts of many who have had the opportunity to see the car in person. It’s kind of like the car version of Tom Hardy!

Of course, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to feature a car as incredible as this Nissan GT-R. That’s why we got in contact with Alan. We present to you: the modifications it has, the questions and answered we asked him, and all of the behind the scenes detail.

Q&A with Alan

  1. When did you first discover you had an interest in cars?

I’ve always been interested in cars, since before I could drive. Anything involving adrenaline peaked my interest.

  1. What was the first car you ever owned?

My very first car was a Mk5 Ford Escort. Although, it was bound for the scrap yard and probably should have went there, but I loved it back then.

  1. What garages do you use to perform the work on your car?

Litchfield Motorsport do all the tuning for the car, whilst Protek Bathgate and PTW Detailing look after the bodywork and detailing.

  1. Are you attending any car shows in 2017?

I’ve attended a few shows this year; I work a lot of weekends so often miss out. I travelled to the European tuning showdown, which is ‘a best of Europe’ car show. I placed 5th against some pretty crazy show cars – not bad for a daily!

  1. Has your car ever been featured in any magazines / online forums?

The car has been shared on various forums / Facebook groups. It’s also had a feature in Banzai Magazine, just after the carbon bodywork went on.

  1. What advice would you give to someone who wants to modify their car for the first time?

Budget and save! A few little things quickly add up to a whole lot of cash. But mostly, modify it for yourself – do what you like and what you think will work. It also takes time, it’s taken me just over 3 years to go from bone stock to where it stands now.

  1. If money was no option what car would you buy?

So many too choose from, I think I’d have a Mclaren 675lt, with the full carbon works and some special MSO paint. Because, why not?

  1. If you could pick a career that involved cars, what would it be?

It would have to be something involved with drifting. I’ve actually got another car for drifting, and it’s as much fun as the GT-R – any day.

  1. Do you have any plans to further modify your car?

Yes, maybe some more power and there is always room for some more carbon fibre. But, for now, I’m happy. I’ve got another project car on the go at the minute, so that’s keeping me busy.

Insurance for a modified Nissan GT-R

A car such as Alan’s Nissan GT-R, is so highly modified and has so much power, that it requires a specialist insurance policy. A policy which covers every single modification and has the ability to offer things such as ‘like-for-like’ modifications cover, or ‘agreed valuation’ cover.
