Rohan is no stranger to the fanatics of very high-end paintjobs. The company, partnering with Kuhl Racing you guys already know from previous articles published here makes aero parts and custom paint jobs with unique techniques. The quality of the job is by all means at the best Japanese standards, which means it is almost impossible to find flaws or imperfections in the jobs done by Rohan.

This GT-R showcase several of their signature features like the metal flake paint with color variation and lining. The amount of time and attention required to make such a paintjob is extremely high and you can only imagine the price tag coming with it. However, if you want your car to stand out from the rest, a Rohan paintjob is probably one of the best options available on the market.

Another technique often use by the company from Kyoto is the use of a grinder to create a very recognizable pattern on the metal before clear coating it. Mastering this is extremely difficult and there are only a couple of people at Rohan capable of doing it with such precision.

The Titanium tipped exhaust is also coming from Kuhl Racing and massive Vertz wheels complete the visual package of this beast, supported by the small but well-made Kuhl rear wing.

As a proper show car the machine received a remote controlled air suspension system, allowing the driver to set his preferred height and giving the car the best looks when static.

This Red Nissan, while being obviously road use oriented remains a GT-R with its amazing performance, so you get the best of both worlds.

The Aero kit, despite being quite aggressive does not however break the original lines of the car thus improving its looks without making it a UFO.

The complicated paint scheme, although very visual and beautiful also does make the car look like a Christmas tree and enhances the lines of the Kuhl Aero kit, a great balanced achieved there, especially for a demo car to my opinion.
