We all are scared to see the red and blue lights in the rearview mirror, but catching a glimpse of this car flashing behind you is likely to inspire more primal fears. It’s called Pursuit 23, a Nissan GT-R that is one of the most badass project cars we have ever seen.
Commissioned by Nissan ahead of the upcoming, this GT-R has received a menacing black wrap and about as many lights as one could possibly fit, including LEDs within the NACA ducts on the hood. A gigantic rear wing hangs from the trunk and a set of adjustable coil over dampers mean this thing is properly slammed.
The “Skyline Metro” on the graphics is a nod to the Nissan Skyline, the car that first saw the GT-R badge way back in the late ’60s. The 23, meanwhile, is a reference to the pronunciation of the Japanese characters for “two” and “three” — “ni” and “san”.
This is just a one-off, not intended for active duty in any police force. However, if you’re in New York around the Auto Show next week you might just see it making the rounds. I hope I will never see this thing chasing my tail, ever!
