We’ve seen some insane Nissan GT-R’s out there, but this fire breathing Godzilla is one of the best. Check out the video below.
The latest Nissan GT-R made its debut in 2007, however it was no longer part of the Skyline range. Nissan replaced the straight-6 RB26DETT engine with a new V6 VR38DETT power unit. Additionally, the HICAS four-wheel-steering system was removed and the all-wheel-drive system was updated.
The new power unit produced an impressive 478bhp and 588Nm, however many third party testers found that the R35 GT-R produced more power than what was stated by Nissan. The VR engine was mated to a dual clutch semi-automatic transmission built by Aichi Machine Industry. Power was increased to 523bhp and 612 Nm in 2010 and to 545bhp and 628Nm in 2012.
Like GT-R’s before it the R35 GT-R was given the NISMO treatment. A NISMO Edition GT-R was introduced in 2015 which had a number of improvements over the standard model. Power was now 591bhp and a special NISMO aero kit was fitted. The car was also strengthened and stiffened.
The GT-R set the standard for modern performance cars when it launched in 2007 and the 10-year-old design can still keep up with many modern cars today. 0-100km/h is done and dusted in 2.7 seconds and the GT-R can hit just shy of 200mph. The car is also one of the fastest in the world around the famed Nurburgring with a lap time of 7 minutes and 18 seconds.
