A 4-wide version of one the world's most heavily modified Skylines.
About this creation
After purchasing the Powerhouse Amuse Carbon-R in Gran Turismo PSP, I was inspired to build it as a 4-wide. The car started life as a normal Nissan Skyline GT-R, but was later outfitted with an all-carbon fiber widebody, a stripped-out interior, and a multitude of custom parts, among countless other modifications. The result? The Carbon-R weighs 900 lbs. lighter than the original :) The only remaining stock parts are the roof and pillars, which explains why they are white. Also, I'm proud to present this car as my first Skyline of any shape or form! Please review, and thanks for looking!
Front angle. I normally represent carbon fiber with dark bley, but this car looked closer overall to black.
Side view. The roof is white because it is one of the only parts left stock.
Rear angle. And I'd like to credit Tommy N. for the spoiler idea. It's a brilliant technique, and I think it'll replace my own outdated design.
Interior. After adding the famous blue exhaust pipe, I made blue a secondary color, as seen in the cabin.
Front detail. Underneath the stock grille, notice the massive ARC intake. I like those things :)
Rear detail. Notice the famous R1 Titan exhaust pipe.

This piece looks more like an old small Fiat Abarth rather than the one you thought you were trying to copy.
That's the second time someone has told me that one of my models looks more like a Fiat Abarth than the one I was trying to build! And the funny thing is that it was for two different cars, too. Must be a sign :)
It's like this! This piece looks more like an old small Fiat Abarth rather than the one you thought you were trying to copy. That, on the other hand doesn't mean that this isn't a cool model! It's a beauty! I love it! Small model but lots of details! Bravo!

I think its realy hard to recreate these cars in that sort of scale but you seem to hit the nail on the head pretty much all of the time great little skyline 5/5
Awesome, the same thing happend to me yesterday (except I'm thinking about buying it). I have it built right now. When I saw the words 'Amuse Carbon R' I thought "Nooooo, I not the first one to build this, whyyyyy?!!" But you beat me to it:( Awesome work!! 10/5
