Nissan GT-R Featuring COR Encor Forged Wheels

New shoes for Godzilla.
The Nissan GT-R rocked the super car world with unrivaled performance and a Nürburgring lap time that blew the competition out of the water. The Specialized Performance Nissan GT-R is even more potent; packing an 800+ horsepower engine and aerodynamic bodywork. But, the real secret to the car’s success are the COR Encor wheels.
The new COR Encor wheels are more than just your average forged wheel. The Encor wheels undergo a unique weight reduction process that decreases the amount of rotational mass at the wheel hub without sacrificing strength. Each Encor wheel is subjected to a thorough stress testing process to ensure the wheel is capable of handling the incredible forces exerted by high-horsepower cars.
The exterior of the Nissan GT-R was given a number of carbon fiber aerodynamic additions, but the highlight of the super car is the COR Encor wheels. Each wheel has been given a hand-brushed face with tinted clear coat finish and polished outer lip. This finish complements the contrasting white paint and bare carbon fiber bodywork, but also makes the Encor wheels stand out as the centerpiece of the GT-R. The front axle is fitted with a pair of 20x10s with 265/35/21 performance tires, while the rear features a wider set of 21x11s and 305/30/21 shoes.
What makes the fitment unique is that the Encor wheels can undoubtedly handle the upgraded power produced by the Specialized Performance GT-R. The 3.8-liter V-6 engine has been upgraded with the full range of HKS products, and a custom-built full exhaust system for an astonishing 817 horsepower at the wheels.
The Specialized Performance Nissan GT-R is every bit at home on the track as it is on the boulevard. While its immense power may shock some, its stunning COR Encor wheels will always remain as the center of attention.
