John Gomes

The Nissan GT-R is the attainable dream car for many enthusiasts, including Maryland's John Gomes. After finally getting hold of his dream car, Gomes knew he wanted to do something different. A little bit of research, searching and building the right partnerships landed him the first Skipper carbon widebody kit for the GT-R in the United States. Being a GT-R, it wasn't complete with just aesthetics. Gomes also had the power upped considerably, making his iteration of Godzilla one to be reckoned with.
