Nissan GT-R Review
The Godzilla has finally arrived on the Indian shores. The beast in question is the Nissan GT-R, the Japanese car maker’s flagship supercar. The GT-R was born to be an everyday supercar – one you could prod around in the city and also put it to pace around the racetrack with aplomb. The R35 has received regular updates to make it go faster than the year before.
Supercars are as much about looks as performance but the GT-R refuses to follow the trend. The looks aren’t as outspoken but do exude the aggression lying beneath. The long wedge-like hood with breathing scoops, the raked windscreen, sloping roof and the flared wheel arches make it look its part as a sports car. The Skyline signature quad tail lamps speaks of the glorious lineage of the GT-R. The front lip, rear wing and rear diffuser make it look sharp and improve the aerodynamics.
The performance of the GT-R compensates for anything you might find missing in the car. The 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine is a gem. It develops 542bhp of power and 612Nm of torque through all four wheels and is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The super advanced all-wheel drive system in the GT-R allows this 1.8-tonne vehicle to accelerate from 0-100kmph in well under 3 seconds and gives it immense grip around the corners.
The safety net in the GT-R consists of six airbags, body construction with impact absorbing zones, vehicle dynamic control, traction control and of course ABS and EBD. It comes with a 2+2 seating but the rear seats are best reserved for kids or luggage. The interior of the R35 generation GT-R is a tech-fest full of computers and high-tech sensors monitoring even the tiniest of movements of the car. The dashboard is dominated by a massive screen that displays all the functions of the car.
Nissan has priced the GT-R at par with its rival, the Porsche 911 Turbo. For a similar price tag, you can also get the Jaguar F-type R hardtop, the Maserati GT and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
