    <p>The recent Tokyo Auto Salon did host a huge number of JDMs, but it seems that most of them were dominated by the monstrous Nissan GT-R R35s. Coupled with the great support given by the guys from the Singapore GT-R Owners Club, the Tokyo Auto Salon Singapore 2013 is the place to be if the GT-R is the car that screams in your dreams.</p>

    <p>Every single car that sits at the SG GTROC is a total looker, whether it is stock looking or almost losing its road-legal status. This particular GT-R caught our eyes as it has a very similar sibling over in Malaysia, having half of its body in carbon, and the others in its original body part covered in a contrasting white paint.</p>

    <p>Even without an aftermarket kit, this GT-R is just a looker, having bathed in a coat of candy red paint that looks almost similar to McLaren’s Volcano Red paint scheme on their MP4-12C.</p>
    <p><a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/r34-red.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-53512" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/r34-red-600x399.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="399" /></a></p>
    <p>And surprisingly enough, there was an R34 in the Auto Styling sports a coat of paint almost similar to the previous R35! Which would you prefer the most; the older brother or the younger and more powerful 35?</p>
    <p><a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/r34-blue.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-53511" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/r34-blue-600x399.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="399" /></a></p>
    <p>R34s are getting extinct, and we could only find a second specimen settling in Team WestLake Tires’s booth. Reminds you of Fast and Furious?</p>

    <p>We also paid a visit to LHB Motorsport’s booth and they brought a couple of GT-Rs on display. But of course the one that we are interested in is their carbon-clad time attack machine that once blasted through Sepang on last year’s TIMETOATTACK. We believe that this monster will be making a comeback in this year’s TIMETOATTACK with a brand new attitude, so do keep an eye on that.</p>

    <p>Talking about carbon-clad, the Top Gear Singapore booth also had a similar machine basking in the spotlight, gaining attention of every petrol head that passed by.</p>

    <p>The GT-Rs coming in from Japan were also the stars of the show, looking both mean and aggressive at the same time. While the one on Varis is a good example of subtle touches without any major changes on its exterior…</p>
    <p><a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/gtr-abflug.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-53492" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/gtr-abflug-600x399.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="399" /></a></p>

    <p>…it is the one on Abflug’s booth that we absolutely love. Slapped with a mean Varis bodykit, this has to be one of our most favorite cars from the whole show.</p>
    <p>We have the best from the TAS SG 2013 Auto Styling soon to come, so stay tuned for more JDM goodies!</p>

    I love the front of the abflug GTR. and the rear too! At least a GTR-35 that doesn't look quite the same like the rest.
    IN fact is the nicest bodykit I ever seen! :top:

    Last year actually I saw 1 black R35 on sale on the net which had a different front body kit and it looks very nice as well as it got rid of the black 'open mouth' style, but it's a bit more subtle than this abflug one. Aside from this abflug style, that one also I really like.

    I have seen one black Tommy Kaira Bodykitted GTR35 during Super GT last 2 years also with an emblem at the rear TommyKaira. Not sure if it is this bodykit if not wrong. Need to go dig out that photo.

    But it was a shock of my life when the displayed GTR35 there was almost torn apart by a kid. He went and stand on the GTR lips...
