A Chinese businessman wanted a non-standardized execution of his Nissan GT-R, a car which didn’t distinguish up to this point from the other GTRs in the market. He asked Vilner to do the job. The studio decided to create an idea which aligns elements of a dragon fitting a year of the dragon theme.
The project was approved and Vilner started working on the interior design. The designer drew a dragon, which was embroidered on the car’s roof, and in the trunk, which was covered with Alcantara. The body of the dragon was transmitted by embroideries inside, winding around the seats, and passing through the center console. The effect was reinforced by the relief effects resulting from the combination of leather and embroidery.
Every single element of the dragon body was hand-drawn by the designer personally on a pattern inside. Vilner used Black as a base, combining it with Black Alcantara and Black carbon leather. The same style was fitted to the dashboard, the door panels and the black console. The Red edges emphasize the shape of the seats and correspond with the dragon on the roof and the Red decorative seams on the dashboard. The steering wheel and gear shifter are made of carbon; some minor details were painted in Red Chrome.
The Red elements are not random. Red is the original color of the car, which received a White mat foiling finish in addition. The exhaust pipes are made of Titanium. The engine tuning went from 440whp up to 530whp.
