This Nissan GT-R’s Unique Cabin Comes Courtesy Of Carlex Design

When Nissan unveiled its revamped GT-R back in 2017, changes were made both inside and out. So aside from increased performance, a new V-motion grille and a new hood, Godzilla also got a Nappa leather-wrapped instrument panel, revised front seats and an overall less cluttered dashboard.

While clearly an improvement, there was still room for various modifications, something supercar owners tend to appreciate, as it makes them feel closer to their vehicle.


Let’s just say there’s nothing subtle about the interior design of this particular GT-R, modded by Carlex Design as a bespoke 1 of 1 project.

Features include Blood red leather with black inserts, ambient lighting, a unique perforation pattern, embossing, and a multitude of leather processing techniques. The tuner also trimmed the rear-view mirror, added Nappa leather and Alcantara padding to the trunk and other compartments, built a key case and a carbon leather backpack.

This exact color and material combination reminds us of other Carlex projects, such as this Mercedes-AMG C43 or this VW Amarok (to a slightly lesser extent). Still, they achieved their goal in replacing cheaper-feeling plastics with soft-touch, high quality fabrics such as Alcantara, which as you know is extremely popular within the automotive industry.

Unless any performance mods were applied, we can assume this Nissan GT-R is still putting down 565 HP (570 PS), allowing for a zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration time of 2.7 seconds, making this one of the quickest cars in the world.

    I doubt I’ve ever seen the dash in one of these things. Looks to me (almost) like it came straight out of the 1980s.

    so disappointing. ok yes, the GT-R is still a hugely powerful & dynamic street machine. but Nissa/Infiniti hasn’t done enough to leverage that tech into other models that would’ve earned them billions for future R&D & other tech by now. why only make 1 GT-R when you can make a dozen (lesser) versions that will generate brand interest & fund operating expenses easily.

    they should’ve been made a revised QX70 with a detuned GT-R engine & drivetrain system. they’re missing out on easy midsize sport-luxury CUV sales. A QX70 Red Sport 400/450 or QX70-R would be exciting.
