While the Japanese tuner Liberty Walk, and its owner Wataru Kato, did advance has informed the LB silhouette WORKS GT Nissan 35GT-RR to build, that's the project "LB Super Silhouette Works R34 Skyline“Been different. Nothing was let through here and only at the last Tokyo Auto Salon 2020 (10. Jan. 2020 - 12. Jan. 2020) presents the project vehicle to the world public. And the base vehicle as a Skyline Coupé (built from 1998 to 2002) Generation R34 also received a special Silhouette WORKS body kit all around. Under the term "LB-ER34 Super Silhouette Skyline“The one-off was surprisingly based on an ER34 GT-t and not on the top model GT-R, And the goal of the conversion should be known to everyone who followed the FIA Group 5 rules in the late 30s and early XNUMXs. The Hasemi KDRXNUMX Skyline was there Super Silhouette Formula racing series on the road, which Masahiro Hasemi drove in 1982 and 83.

The red and black Tomica paint is now legendary and of course it has to the Super silhouette skyline made. But only in combination with a complete body kit that a little like crazy Bosozoku style remind. There was a new front apron with spoiler, a sporty rear bumper with a typically fat rear diffuser and of course there were enormously widened fenders. They are connected with large side skirts and complete the harmonious lines of the side section including the small Vitaloni exterior mirrors. Countless aerodynamic components such as the large air openings in the fender flares mentioned, the fins on both sides on the completely new bonnet with power dome and of course the new version of the rear wing complete the extensive body kit. After this LB ★ Silhouette WORKS Ferrari 458, The Hurricane and the 35GT-RR mentioned at the beginning is the Silhouette Works R34 skyline now also an official product of the label "LB ★ Silhouette WORKS" founded in 2018.
no real GT-R had to lose its life
And the guys made a conscious decision not to use a real GT-R with an RB26DETT six-cylinder for the conversion, but “only” a normal ER34. This shouldn't annoy the large fan base too much! And the Liberty ER34 will probably only smile tiredly about the GT-R anyway. Under the jagged bonnet is not the RB25DET NEO, but an enlarged 3,1-liter L28 in-line six with countless changes such as a modified one cylinder head, a new one Camshaft, three 50 mm Solex double carburettors, modified intake, improved air cooling etc. All of this ends in standard manifolds and in a side pipe sports exhaust system, which however does not give us any information about the actual key data of the engine. And also the built-in ones fanfarewho play a Mickey Mouse tune do not give out any information. There is more information about the rims and the chassis.
11 x 18 inch Yokohama Advan Racing GT-Alus
Liberty relies on 11 x 18 inch Yokohama Advan Racing GT-Alus in combination with track plates to adequately fill the wheel arches. And so that the wheelset sits so consistently and precisely in the wheel arch, as is the case in the pictures, nothing else was considered but an Airride air suspension. And of course no stone has been left unturned in the cabin. Almost everything was cleared out, then painted black, and instead a bright yellow cusco dominatesRoll cage, bright red Bride Gita bucket seats, a sports steering wheel with Alcantara cover and an aluminum pedal set the cabin. It goes without saying that this vehicle, of course, especially because of the huge front spoiler, is not approved for road use. And that is also a reason why the aerodynamic kit will not go into series production. Official LBW dealers will receive the vehicle if a replica is planned.
