PostHeaderIcon Godzilla is Coming to New York!

Nissan made a serious update to the GT-R for the 2017 model year, debuting it to the U.S. at the 2016 New York Auto Show. Little time had passed, and Nissan started shooting information out about the GT-R Nismo and all of its 600-horsepower, track-day goodness. By the time September of 2016 rolled around, we were learning about the GT-R Track Edition, a model that slots between the standard road-going model and the Nismo. Unfortunately, at the time, we hadn’t heard anything about it coming to the U.S. or what its specifications would be if it did. Well, with the 2017 New York Auto Show right around the corner, the Track Edition is about to make its U.S. debut before going on sale in late summer as a special-order model.

Basically, the Track-Edition GT R is like a genetic experiment gone right, with the car borrowing some features from the Nismo while maintaining the same power delivery of the GT-R Premium model. That means it will have a total of 565 horsepower here in the U.S., but will have the looks of something a little more fierce – kind of like the perfect storm. When it does go on sale, you’ll have to order one and wait in line, and will be asked to pony up at least $127,990, before options, taxes, and delivery.

“The new GT-R Track Edition gives buyers a specialized model, one true to GT-R heritage and available only by special order,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. “Building on the major upgrade to every GT-R for 2017, the Track Edition is an amazing package inside, outside and under the skin.”

PostHeaderIcon Hunting For A 6-Second Pass In A Nissan GT-R R35: Video

We all know the Nissan GT-R is an absolute beast – after all, in stock form it’ll lay down a blacktop-churning 565 horsepower thanks to its twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6 powerplant, six-speed automatic transmission, and high-performance AWD drivetrain. But per usual, tuners the world over see these figures as not much more than a starting point to build something bigger, badder, and a helluva lot faster. Enter Chicago-based tuner AMS Performance, a legendary shop with a long history of producing simply outrageous speed machines. One of its latest creations is this – the aptly named Alpha G GT-R. Total output is rated at a staggering 3,000 horsepower, which is enough to motivate this lightened and drag-slick-shod Godzilla to a low 7-second pass down the quarter mile. 1320 Video highlights the Alpha G in his 5-minute, 33-second video as its owner chases sixes.

Hit play, and you’ll get a walkaround on the Alpha G, from its carbon-laden exterior, to the exposed boost-makers and air elements in the nose, to the side exhaust, to the fat Hoosiers in the corners, to the parachute in back. Afterwards, we get to watch the Nissan strut its stuff, attacking the drag strip in a flurry of six-cylinder blasts, turbo spool, and barely contained traction.

You’ll have to watch the whole thing to see if the GT-R manages to dip into the six-second range, but trust me, there’s plenty of entertainment to be had along the way.


PostHeaderIcon Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500

The current Nissan GT-R, also known as the R35, was introduced in 2007 as a successor to the popular R34. Redesigned from the ground up, the R35 set many new benchmarks for the GT-R nameplate. It’s the first to no longer feature the Skyline name and the first GT-R to use a V-6 engine (previous generations have used inline-six units). More importantly, it’s the first GT-R offered globally, being exported to the U.S. and giving Nissan unprecedented popularity in the sports car market. Finally, it is also the longest-running GT-R model. While previous versions were produced for three to five years, the R35 is ten years old as of 2017. Although a bit long in the tooth, the current GT-R is still making headlines on both the road and the track, the latter fueled by numerous versions prepped by Nismo. One of them is the GT500 and it just received an update for the 2017 racing season.

Used by Nissan in Japan’s top-spec Super GT racing division since 2008, the GT-R has brought the company five championship triumphs in nine years. However, after winning the series in 2014 and 2015, the GT-R was defeated by Lexus and its RC F-based GT500 race car in 2016. Nissan wants to fix that in 2017, which brought significant modifications to the GT500 rule book, with a revised version of its Nismo-built, race-ready GT-R.

“We will make further development improvements during off-season tests and aim to create a race car that will shine brilliantly within the history of motorsports,” said president and CEO of Nismo, Takao Katagiri. “We hope to thrill fans with a fast, more appealing GT-R that will excite fans as it lines up on the grid for the opening round competing against the new Lexus and Honda machines.”

The new GT-R GT500 was unveiled at the Twin Ring Motegi along with entries for rival companies Lexus and Honda, and was showcased once again at the Nismo Festival at Fuji Speedway in December. The 2017 Super GT Series is scheduled to begin in April.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan GT-R by Alpha-N Performance

The Nissan GT-R is one of the cars in this world that can hold its own against any other performance vehicle. It may not have the power figures of other exotic vehicles, but it’s a load in itself to deal with on any road surface. Now imagine what the GT-R is capable of if you put it in the hands of an aftermarket tuner. Okay, that’s a rhetorical question because we all know what a tuned GT-R can do. What we’re here for is Alpha-N Performance, the German tuner that has been up to his head developing tuning programs this year, including its latest pride and joy for, you guessed it, the Nissan GT-R.

The program itself is relatively straight-forward, at least when you compare it to some of the previous works of Alpha-N Performance, including the BMW M2 and Mercedes-AMG GT R. In fact, if you line up those two kits with the one the German tuner prepared for the GT-R, the latter is tame by comparison.

Not that it’s going to matter because the GT-R is already a powerhouse in its own right. All Alpha-N Performance is doing here is massaging Godzilla’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine and giving it an extra bump in power and performance. Even better, the cost of availing this upgrade is cheap – it doesn’t even reach four figures – and owners of the GT-R R35 should have no problem giving their supercars an extra shot in power.

Given how some tuners have taken over-the-top approaches in building tuning kits for the GT-R, it’s a good sign that there’s another aftermarket company out there willing to take a different approach on Godzilla.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan GT-R Track Edition

The latest-generation GT-R was launched in 2007, bringing everything Nissan has learned from building sports cars since the late 1960s into one menacing vehicle. Priced from less than $70,000, the GT-R took the market by storm with a performance package that rivaled those of more expensive supercars. Although nine years old as of 2016, the GT-R received two significant updates that included enhanced aerodynamics and more powerful engines.

The 2017 facelift also brought a revised Nismo model, but unfortunately for GT-R enthusiasts, the range-topping version came with a significant price hike. But those who can’t afford a Nismo can opt for the new Track Edition package, which adds a few goodies inside and out, as well as a handful of chassis updates. This is the second time Nissan has offered a Track Edition model. The first one arrived in 2014 and was the most track-focused GT-R outside the Nismo. Much like its predecessor, it was also engineered by Nismo, the company’s motorsport division, and sits above the Premium, Prestige and Black Edition in the model lineup, but below the flagship Nismo.

However, there are quite a few differences compared to the previous Track Edition, most of which are visible on the inside. The new variant is also limited to certain European markets for now, with Nissan having yet to announce plans for a U.S.-spec model. Hopefully this will change soon, but until that happens, let’s see what makes the Track Edition special among other GT-Rs.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan Skyline GT-R Hakosuka

In the world of high-end Japanese performance machines, it’s mighty difficult to top the Nissan GT-R. But like the folded steel of a katana, the twin-turbo AWD track weapon we know and love today is the product of meticulous refinement, and it all started with this: the Skyline GT-R Hakosuka. Now nearly five decades old, the Hakosuka was the first Nissan to bear the highly respected three-letter badge currently considered a synonym for speed, and it set the precedent by way of a high-revving six-cylinder engine, exceptional handling prowess, and a reputation for on-track dominance.

These days, there’s renewed interest in the Hakosuka, as evidenced by skyrocketing auction prices and the number of GT-R “clones” popping up on street corners around the world. But the prize, of course, is unrestored and unmodified, a combination that can command nearly a quarter million dollars on the block.

Why so much? Read on to find out.

Updated 08/22/2016: We added a series of images taken during the car’s presentation by Gooding & Company at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours. And, believe it or not, this car failed to sell.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan's GT-R Drone Can Run To 60 Mph In The Blink Of An Eye: Video

Nissan is already responsible for giving us the GT-R, one of the most impressive performance cars in the world. So with that in mind, Nissan collaborated with World Drone Prix Champions Tornado Blades Racing to create a drone that could give the GT-R a run for its money. The result is the GT-R Drone, a first-person racing drone equipped with the latest in performance-enhancing technology that enables it to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in a ridiculous 1.3 seconds. Considering that an electric racer just set the fastest 0-to-60-mph sprint for an EV with a time of 1.5 seconds a few days ago, the fact that a drone can do it two-tenths of a second quicker is incredible.

To break in the GT-R Drone, Nissan invited 2015 British National Drone Racing champion James Bowles to drive the GT-R Drone against Nissan NISMO driver Ricardo Sanchez and Godzilla itself at the Silverstone circuit in England. The race was chronicled in this expertly done video by Nissan showing the supercar and drone engage in a highly entertaining race. The result is what you’d expect. The drone immediately shoots out of the line only to be caught up the GT-R in the circuit’s twisting corners. Ultimately, the GT-R’s 196 mph top speed also flexed its muscles, outgunning the 115-mph GT-R Drone to the finish. Surprisingly, the drone actually did well for itself considering the circumstances, proving that, while it may not be able to match the GT-R in a lap around a track, it’s got the tech to leave the car in the dust in an acceleration race.

The whole thing makes for a very entertaining race and it shows because anybody who watches it will likely end up wondering what it’s going to take to own the GT-R drone. Trust me. I’ve thought about it myself. It’s unlikely that it’s going to go up for sale anytime soon, but hey, people can dream, right?

PostHeaderIcon Nissan GT-R Nismo

Introduced in 2007 for the fifth-generation, R34 Skyline, the GT-R redefined the way we think about sports cars in general and Nissan in particular. Built on a dedicated platform and design to reflect Japanese culture, the GT-R is a unique sports car that offers supercar-like performance for a more affordable sticker. In 2015, Nissan launched a Nismo-tuned model with increased output and a revised aerodynamic package. The GT-R Nismo quickly made a name for itself on the sports car market thanks to its impressive performance figures, including a 2.9-second 0-to-60 mph sprint, and a Nurburgring Nordschleife lap of only 7:08 minutes, the fifth fastest for road-going production cars.

With a rumored, second-generation GT-R underway, the fate of the mighty Nismo is still a mystery at this point. Most likely the nameplate will disappear for a few years until the new GT-R sets in, but it seems that Nissan isn’t yet willing to discontinue the current version. With the standard GT-R having received a new update for the 2017 model year, the Nismo was expected to get its fair share of upgrades too. This just happened as the Japanese firm unveiled the new GT-R Nismo at the Nurburgring track. The update is actually a mild facelift that doesn’t add more power to the V-6 engine, but it includes a revised aerodynamic kit and a tweaked chassis that makes it even quicker at the track.

Nissan didn’t say whether it plans to attempt a new Nurburgring record, but that’s very likely in the coming months. Until that happens, let’s have a closer look at the 2017 GT-R Nismo in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan GT-R vs. Bullet: Video

Countless comparisons have been made that pit the monstrous Nissan GT-R against all sorts of insane competition, but now, Nissan has released a 30-second commercial that shows Godzilla going up against its biggest challenge yet – a speeding bullet. Thing is, unless your day job involves working as a journalist at the Daily Planet, it just doesn’t really seem like a very fair match, right? Maybe… or maybe not.

Hear me out. The bullet is quick – that much is obvious. It’s svelte and streamlined, built for speed above all else. But the GT-R has a lot going for it too. First of all, the Nissan has way more legroom, plus it can seat up to four passengers, and it’s got a much longer range than the bullet. In back is a place for groceries, or even a suitcase, plus the AWD system is great in low-traction conditions. Throw the bullet some snow, and it’s not going anywhere. The resell value is also quite good – maybe I’m looking in the wrong section of eBay, but I’m not finding too many options when it comes to gently used bullets.

So I guess the GT-R has a leg up on a shard of ballistic flying metal when it comes to general practicality, but when it comes to outright speed, the 2,300-mph bullet seems to edge ahead… or does it? Hit play and find out.


PostHeaderIcon Nissan GT-R Sets World Record For Fastest Drift

The Nissan GT-R is nearly 10 years old as of 2016, but that didn’t stop it from setting a new world record. The Japanese brand has just announced that the GT-R has set the Guinness World Record for the fastest ever drift. The new benchmark was achieved with a speed of 304.96 km/h (189.5 mph) and a 30-degree angle, using a specially-tuned, 2016 Nissan GT-R. The record car was driven by Masato Kawabata, the Japanese drift champion and title holder for the Japanese drifting series. Kawabata clinched the top spot from former record holder Jakub Przygonski during a special event that took place at Fujairah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates.

Developed in Japan with support from Nismo specialists and GReddy Trust, the record-setting GT-R was tuned to 1,380 horsepower, 815 horses more than the standard 2017 GT-R. Besides the highly modified 3.8-liter V-6, the special GT-R also used a Recaro driver seat, bespoke lightweight wheels supplied by Rays, and drift rubber specifically designed by Toyo Tires for this stung. The Fujairah International Airport was chosen for its three-kilometer (1.86-mile) long airstrip, which enabled Kawabata to drift at more than 300 km/h (186 mph), a first for the tire-shredding sport.

This isn’t the first world record set by the GT-R. In 2011, Nissan’s affordable supercar set a new benchmark for the fastest 0-60 mph acceleration by a four-seat production vehicle. In its Nismo racing suit, the GT-R is also the fifth fastest production car on the Nurburgring track, having lapped the German course in only 7:08 minutes, only 11 seconds slower than the Porsche 918 Spyder, in 2015.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan GT-R

Now that the New York Auto Show has kicked off, we’re excited to announce that we’ve laid eyes on the refreshed 2017 Nissan GT-R. Thanks to a thorough makeover, the GT-R sports a fresh front end, a more refined rear end, and a new look inside as well. While all this is fun to talk about, most of the changes to the exterior are for optimized aerodynamics.

Hiroshi Tamura, Nissan’s Chief Product Specialist for the GT-R, Z-Car, and NISMO, said, “The new GT-R delivers a heart-pounding driving experience at all times, on any road, for whoever sits in the driver’s seat. We have continued to push its performance boundaries to the limit – it’s even more potent than before. At the same time, refinement has been added to take the driving experience to an entirely new level. We’re proud to bring you what we feel is the ultimate GT-R that possesses amazing performance, newfound civility, and a rich racing history.”

That’s right, unlike most refreshed vehicles, Nissan actually managed to squeeze a little more juice out of the GT-R’s 3.8-liter V-6, and that in itself is worth talking about. So, with that said, let’s dive on into the 2017 GT-R and go over all these new developments that promise to make Nissan’s resident and most desired sports car that much more awesome than before.

Updated 06/01/2016: Nissan announced U.S. prices for the 2017 GT-R. Check the “Prices” section to see how much it costs and what does it bring new when compared to the 2016 model year.

Nissan GT-R Nismo-acc

In another one of their no holds barred tests of acceleration, the guys at Motorsport Magazine pointed a Nissan GT-R Nismo toward the end of a runway and floor it. What followed was a demonstration of Japanese engineering excellence as the car rocketed forward with such ferocity, the speedo needle could barely keep up.

This is a one-take demo of Nissan GT-R Nismo sprinting from o to 260 km/h using Launch Control:

Nissan GT-R Nismo Highlights:

2017 Nissan GT-R Teased

Nissan steps up the whole new car teasing game by releasing a GIF of the 2017 Nissan GT-R back-end, announcing the car’s debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show. The teaser shows the new GT-R’s tail lamps light up and… well, that’s about it.

So despite the sheer GIFness of the teaser, it’s actually pretty useless, especially as the tail lamps it shows us are the same as the existing model. That tells us the 2017 Nissan GT-R is another one of those lightly upgraded model they sell at a greater price than the last year’s model and not at all a whole new version.

There is a whole new GT-R coming, most likely with hybrid power, but it will another two or three years before we hear anything concrete about that car and it will be at a more major motor show where they will release it and not NYIAS. What you can expect from the New York-bound 2017 GT-R is improved aero, enhanced materials and equipment level, a further revised chassis, and maybe a few extra horses. Hardly an exciting proposition, but hey, it’s a recipe that works.

Carlex Design Nissan GT-R-0

You know Carlex as an interior specialist with some pretty crazy ideas as to the characteristics of a good cabin. With their latest project, though, they have gone a few steps above that, creating something extraordinary. Dubbed Robin, the new Carlex Design Nissan GT-R is every bit as unique inside as it is on the outside.

Featuring a unique body kit and a chrome wrap that makes the car shine like the metal teeth of a rapper, Carlex Design Nissan GT-R gets a super deluxe and completely unique interior makeover with the front and rear seats, dashboard, door cards, central console, headlining and floor mats trimmed in black Alcantra and contrasting light grey and red leather. The design gives the vehicle the appearance of a spaceship.

Besides the upholstery, Carlex Design Nissan GT-R Robin has two more big highlights. One is all the silver flakes elements, including gear shift knob, door handles, air intakes, dials and speakers cover trims, which look really cool, and the other is that awesome steering wheel, covered, it seems, in many layers of leather and Alcantara and garnished with contrast stitching. Granted, this cabin is not as performance-focused as the standard car’s, but it looks a lot better.

1000-hp Nissan GT-R-0

The R35 Nissan GT-R has been around for quite a while now and in that time it’s been subjected to all kinds of upgrade treatments, many of which boosted its power output to over 1,000 horsepower. The latest thousand-horse GT-R is built by the German firm Mcchip-DKR.

Naturally, in order to extract that kind of power out of the V6 bi-turbo engine of the Nissan GT-R the DKR boys had to go way beyond their routine, which is whipping the ECU out of the engine, uploading some new codes on it, and putting it back in again. Oh no. This bad boy needed a lot more work before it was ready.

The tuner has upgraded the turbochargers in this engine, installed a massive Alpha intercooler with bespoke pipes, replaced the air filters and ignition system, customized the cylinder heads, modified the exhaust and the transmission, and yes, upgraded the software as well. They also uprated the suspension, the speedometer, and the engine’s lubrication with specialized material.

It’s been a lot of work, but when you read the power figures they have achieved, you would agree it’s been worth the effort. This beast of a car now produces 1,121 horsepower and 1,099 Nm of torque. To give you an idea what that means in terms of raw performance, it takes this Nissan GT-R 4.2 seconds to go from 100 km/h to 200 km/h!

Gideon “Gidi” Chamdi is known in the U.S. drag racing scene as one of the most passionate owners of some of the most incredible drag-tuned supercars. If you’ve heard of AMS Performance, chances are you’re familiar with its staggering builds for the Nissan GT-R. Well, put one and one together and you can see where I’m going here, right?

See, Chamdi is the proud owner of just about every iteration of AMS Performance’s Alpha-tuned GT-Rs. He has the Alpha 10, Alpha 12, Alpha 16, and the Alpha 20. The last of those cars – the Alpha 20 – even became known as the fastest and most powerful Nissan GT-R in the world, a distinction it earned until it met an untimely demise when it crashed at an event back in August 2015.

With the Alpha 20 gone, Chamdi returned to AMS Performance, looking to replace his dearly departed GT-R with something that’s faster and more powerful than anything AMS Performance has built for the Japanese supercar. The result, or at least the partial result, is this monstrosity. It’s been labeled as the Alpha G and it promises to take the capabilities of the Alpha 20 and take it up to new heights.

Kuhl-Racing Nissan GT-R-Gold-0

Over the years we have seen some properly insane takes on the GT-R, but we can now safely say that we have stumbled upon the craziest of them all. Kuhl-Racing Nissan GT-R is by far and away the most off-the-hook Godzilla the world has ever seen.

A quick look at Kuhl-Racing Nissan GT-R is enough to make sure of its insanity. But it’s not just the appearance where it trumps the competition. The car is also a technical masterpiece, boasting an 820 horsepower engine with Kuhl turbochargers and what’s possibly the loudest exhaust ever fitted to a GT-R with Kuhl’s Titan mufflers.

But the main highlight remains that engraved gold metal paint job. And yes, it is a paint job and not a wrap. They have first applied the engravings to the body panels and then painted them to achieve this super unique look. It is so distracting to look at this paint, you may not even notice Artisizawa Kuhl-Racing Nissan GT-R also features a sick body kit with wide fenders and sills and aero parts.

Other highlights of Artisizawa Kuhl-Racing Nissan GT-R include fully chromed engine, Airrex air suspension and Works wheels. Look for this art car at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon. Not that you can miss it!

PostHeaderIcon Top 5 Future Vehicles I Want Santa To Bring Now

With Christmas season upon us, wish lists are long with things we hope the jolly ole man from up north would gift us. No, I’m not talking about your Uncle Buck on your dad’s side, but Saint Nick himself. Sure, things like new camera equipment or a performance parts might top the list of most car-loving folks out there, but what if Santa could reach into the future and deliver a hot new ride that isn’t even out yet?

What would you ask for?

Me, I’m into things with a purpose. Vehicles that go really fast or one that go slow, but can conquer the Rubicon trail usually get elicit more excitement than the average grocery getter. That’s why my list consists of purpose-built vehicles. I will admit, however, there is one vehicle that fills a more daily drier role, but comes with all-wheel drive and more power than its little chassis is normally allotted. What am I talking about? Keep reading to find out.
