Vehicles of various models have always been popular in movies. As a supercar with no mind for practicality, the Nissan GT-R does amazingly well at making its passengers comfortable. The Nissan GT-R sources its power from the now-iconic 3.6-litre twin turbo V6 petrol engine. Of torque from its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 for a total of 565 and 467, respectively; new performance figures haven't been published, but the outgoing model can hit 0-60 in 2.7 seconds, which is well into supercar territory.
However, the GT-R must contend with the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Porsche 911, two cars with lower price tags that are also easier to attain. An engine designed to answer the demands of a supercar for the 21st century, the VR38 is high-performance, while still being fuel-efficient and conscious of the environment.
Before pulling away she shakes her head like she just can't believe she's seeing an Nissan Skyline GT-R R34, blows a few kisses, and is gone. Although the internals are still in standard trim, a Cobb AccessPort piggyback ECU, Fujitsubo titanium exhaust system, complete with Esprit mid Y-pipe joint and a BMC full carbon airbox have been added to bring power to a healthy 530bhp.
The Nissan GTR Nissan Skyline GT-R is a supercar from Nissan in every sense of the world. The GT-R's looks make it a standout in any performance showdown and any supercar lover will find plenty to respect. The GT-R is an entirely new model, sharing little with the Skyline GT-R save its signature four round tail lights.
The R35 is designed from the ground up as a stand-alone model (it's no longer part of the Skyline family) and does not look like anything Nissan has ever made. With its 6-cylinder in-line DOHC 24-valve S20, this Nissan GT-R was the first domestic car to have disc brakes front and rear.
Before switching production to the Skyline R33 in 1995, Nissan built 43,937 Skyline R32 GT-Rs, including 5003 in 1989, the first year of production. This engine gives you all the power you could possibly need, in a condensed and ideally sized package, making the 2018 Nissan GT-R lightweight and ready for the track.
Humble origins are almost the norm in case of sports cars and the car which first wore the ‘GT-R' badge was no different. I've been fortunate enough to drive some great cars in great locations and I've never experienced such universally positive reactions as greeted the R34 when we turned up in Margate.
