Its not a skyline by any means even if I did put the motor and transmission in it. It’s just a Maxima customized in a way others never attempted to do. I have no skyline badges on it as I had all badges shaved. To me my car is my baby Fantasma.

This build was completed by Stephane Asselin back in 2008. Yeap, over 10 years ago. It was the very first Supercharged VQ35DE Nissan Altima in the world originating from Québec, Canada. It also has a 5-Speed Manual to 6-Speed HSLD Manual transmission from a 2004 Nissan Maxima. Everything was done by Stephane himself except the custom alternator pulley which he had made by a local shop.  On the 1/4 track, the car ran 12.614 @ 110.730 MPH on 5.5-6 PSI of Boost.

Such an amazing and beautiful build!

Enjoy the build and progress photos below:
