Power, metal, and shine: there’s so much to love about an expertly crafted machine, and capturing this GT-R was a treat. It’s owned by professional snowboarder and car enthusiast Nick Langkamp in Austin, Texas.
Nick and his GT-R regularly showed up at Cars and Coffee at the Oasis on Lake Travis. Cars and Coffee is a charity based show sponsored by ELITE Motorsports. The “cruise-in” is the largest monthly show in Texas, and is open to cars of all types.
The GT-R, made by Nissan and assembled in Japan, is a fairly new high performance vehicle (unveiled in 2007.) While most other high performance vehicles are rear powered, The GT-R is all wheel drive. This gives it more power and earned it the nickname Godzilla.
Like most high performance cars, Nick’s is a work in progress. When we saw it last, it had a 800awhp boostlogic package on it. If you don’t know what that means, all you need to know is it goes really, really fast.

Not only did we get to shoot this gorgeous model, we got to take it for a spin. We found a great neighborhood outside of the Oasis (we weren’t supposed to be there, but we just couldnt resist – look at that perfect winding road!) Seeing the GT-R in action was amazing.
We added multi-talented and faceted model Adrian Hale into the mix. She’s been a member of teamBlue with AzulOx for years behind the scenes styling our models. (She’s also an author.) We finally got her in front of the camera for some creative fun with the GT-R.
This car is gorgeously crafted, inside and out. It’s rare that we get so much time with a subject to shoot, and we got to style the GT-R still, in motion, and with a model. We had so much fun capturing its beauty and power.
