Unleashing the Beast: Fred Mohammed’s Transformed R35 GT-R

When it comes to Nissan’s R35 GT-R, its innate potential for modification has long been recognized. Fred Mohammed, the dynamic 31-year-old director of Crane Trucks R Us, is no stranger to pushing boundaries. In his quest for automotive perfection, he has bestowed upon his 2012 Pearl White R35 GT-R the crème de la crème of aftermarket upgrades.

The Visionary Behind the Wheel

Fred Mohammed’s journey, originally rooted in plumbing, evolved into a self-made entrepreneur with ventures ranging from printing laminates to the transport industry. Amidst the realm of commercial machinery, Farmouz sought a road companion that would provide an exhilarating driving experience. The result? A 2012 Pearl White R35 GT-R that stands as a testament to his pursuit of automotive excellence.

Elevating Performance with HKS

Queensland-based GT Auto, a renowned name in high-end import modification, played a pivotal role in elevating the GT-R’s performance. As an HKS Pro dealer, GT Auto, with its new premises, offered Farmouz a plethora of top-shelf components and HKS gear. HKS Japan, a pioneer in R35 components, provided the foundation for the transformation.

Farmouz opted for the HKS GT600 kit, featuring bolt-on upgrades for the intake, intercooler, and a full titanium exhaust system. The GT600 package, designed for 600hp, includes racing extension pipes, intercooler piping, EVC boost controller, SSQV blow-off valves, and more. Additional COBB tuning and upgraded intercooler/exhaust further enhanced the power output.

The Heart of the Beast

Peering into the engine bay reveals a meticulously upgraded powerhouse. HKS 600hp components seamlessly integrate, showcasing Premium Suction, carbon-fiber panels, twin SSQV blow-off valves, and a substantial intercooler upgrade. The turbos, actuators, and other enhancements contribute to a dyno-proven 700hp at the wheels, a true testament to the bolt-on upgrades.

A Symphony of Power and Style

Driving on stock wheels would be sacrilege for a machine of this caliber. Farmouz adorned his GT-R with custom US ADV1 gold wheels measuring an imposing 22×10.5 inches. The blend of chrome and gold exudes opulence, creating an instant visual impact. The Euro/Aussie-inspired interior, fully re-trimmed in leather and Alcantara, adds a touch of luxury to the driving experience.

The Road Ahead

Farmouz’s GT-R, a blend of speed and style, stands as a showstopper among his impressive collection. With plans for an HKS 1200 kit installation and a full gearbox rebuild in the pipeline, the journey is far from over. Farmouz envisions transforming his GT-R into an 8-second drag and show car, a testament to his relentless pursuit of automotive dreams.

The Price of Exclusivity

The transformation, a labor of love, comes at a cost. Farmouz estimates investing around a quarter of a million dollars in this project. While this sum could secure a house or an extravagant experience, it pales in comparison to the joy of owning a one-of-a-kind automotive masterpiece. Love it or hate it, Farmouz’s GT-R is on a trajectory that few cars can match.

In the world of Fred Mohammed, ordinary R35s simply don’t cut it. This GT-R is not just a car; it’s a symphony of power, style, and the relentless pursuit of automotive perfection.
