Nissan Has Built A Stunning 711bhp GT



After many years on the forbidden fruit list, the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R is fair game in America. Nissan is better known for affordable, reliable hatchbacks and its successful range of crossovers and SUVs than extreme, high-performance cars, but every now and then it breaks the mould. Both GT-Rs are great handlers, courtesy of Nissan's famed ATTESA ET-S all-wheel drive system.

Speaking of more comfortable seats, Nissan is upping the GT-R's selling point as a viable touring car across the board. Soon afterwards, with regulations regarding vehicle emissions tightening and the oil crisis, Nissan downsized their racing activities and the GT-R disappeared from the podiums.

This is the time to be alive if you're shopping for a high-performance sports car. Skyline specialist Middlehurst Motorsport had brought in 100 R33s and when the R34 came along Nissan GB wanted to bring the car officially into the UK itself. Besides giving the GT-R a belligerent appearance, the company engineers have emphasized on making it the most aerodynamic supercar with a drag coefficient as less as possible.

The GT-R's interior impresses with a feature-laden cabin full of high-tech amenities. The GT-R LM NISMO was initially introduced to the world in a commercial during Super Bowl XLIX, which set an all-time TV audience viewing record in February 2015. GT-R features active sound enhancement system to monitor engine speed and vehicle dynamics.

The S20 gives the Z 432 nearly 50 per cent more power than the stock L20 engine, seriously increasing performance. Few have doubted the GT-R's prowess, but Nissan Skyline GT-R as the old breed sold almost exclusively in Japan new - bar the 100 that slipped into Aussie new-car obscurity in 1991 - very few petrolheads ever had a chance to form an unbiased appraisal of these cars.

You do not have any recently viewed cars at this time. It's still a GT-R underneath, with no changes to the engine or drivetrain, but if having the iconic GT-R badge wasn't enough, the new car comes with unique features for a price increase of $11,700. Power goes to all four wheels via an intelligent all-wheel drive system called ATTESA E-TS, the only gearbox option is a six-speed (yes, six gears, it's old!) dual-clutch unit.

While most manufacturers are selling cars with more features and corresponding price hikes, Nissan is bringing out a less expensive GT-R trim, called Pure, to the lineup. For the Nissan GT-R safety features, it has safety kits included- front, side and curtain airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, front and rear parking sensors, reverse camera and proximity radar with obstacle detection.
