The R35 Nissan GT-R is only one generation after the R34 Skyline GT-R, but there really couldn’t have been a more different car to wear the GT-R badge.
Mercedes has introduced a new AMG GT base model in America that’s almost $20,000 cheaper than the initial GT S model. I’m thinking that slides the new entry-level GT into reasonable third-car territory finally.
Drone racing is exciting in its own right, but for spectators the sport still can’t quite match the horsepower and top speeds of auto racing—or can it? Nissan’s GT-R drone, designed and built by Tornado XBlades Racing, can hit a top speed of 115 miles per hour. It can accelerate from zero to sixty in under 1.3 seconds.
Remember when the Nissan GT-R had an MSRP of less than $70,000? That was 2008; Flo Rida and T-Pain were getting low, Katy Perry had just kissed a girl. Nine years later, Nissan still makes much the same GT-R, only with a current asking price of $111,585. What’s weird is that Nissan functionally saves you $4,680.…
The Nissan GT-R has been on the market so long that if it could talk it would probably just rant about how everything went to shit after Liberty Lunch closed down, but it’s still an unbelievably fast slayer of giants. And in addition to a raft of updates for 2017 it’s getting a new Nismo version as well. Get ready to…
It’s a sad day for car enthusiasts as, last night, two dozen rare imports left this earth headed for Jalop heaven in a warehouse fire, The Drive reports. We fear that among the victims may be some classic JDM Nissan Skyline goodness.
Texas doesn’t screw around: they like things big, and they like things powerful. So when the cowboys at T1 Race Development got their hands on a Nissan GT-R, they Texas-ified the crap out of it.
Let’s be frank—Nissan knew what it was doing when it created the Skyline. So much so that I’ll wager more people perusing this site right now would rather drive a bone stock Nissan Skyline GT-R for a week than have a Dodge Challenger Hellcat for a month, present company included. But what if you wanted to create…
The Nissan GT-R is an engineering marvel that almost anyone can get in and drive fast. What do you need to know before you buy a Nissan GT-R? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
I recently had the chance to drive my 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R back-to-back with a brand new 2015 Nissan GT-R. This was like driving a riding lawnmower back-to-back with a jet ski.
The Nissan GT-R has been a bit of a polarizing machine since it’s arrived years ago. Some love it while others feel it can be a bit soulless.
The legendary Rb26 straight-six powertrain. ATTESA all-wheel-drive. A redline past 8000 rpm and at least 300whp. And hey, room for your dog!
In our travels to New Zealand, we drove a huge variety of cars, all of which were excellent in their own ways. But the one we were most excited about was, of course, the one we can’t have here for 9 more years: The R34 Skyline GTR. Almost like a bonus, this one makes four times the power it left the factory with, an…
Yes, ladies and gentlemen: another week has passed, Friday is upon us, and that means it's time for Letters to Doug, the weekly column wherein I provide good, sound advice to loyal Jalopnik readers, and then you tell me how wrong I am.
I've got nothing against the fabled Gulf Racing livery, but on a McLaren P1 it seems kinda dull, and in this case, not particularly well-executed (Gulf blue is pale, powder blue, not this cartoonish Cerulean hue). I feel like perhaps this car was spec'd by someone who knows nothing about McLaren, and just enough about…
The Extreme Turbo Systems GT-R was put through its paces in the half mile, topping out at 220 MPH. Unfortunately, the driver lost control of the vehicle and went into a massive spin out. Fortunately, they appear to be in the middle of frikkin' nowhere, which is probably pretty good news for car and driver.
In his postmodern novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, John Fowles tells us that the heroine, Sarah Woodruff, was "the perfect victim of a caste society. Her father had forced her out of her own class but could not raise her to the next. To the men of the one she had left, she had become too select to marry; to those…
I know in certain beach communities, we're quite popular with the seagull population, which is why I'm issuing this warning: I think some seagulls get hurt or possibly killed in this video. That GT-R is hauling a significant amount of metric ass when it impacts that seagull flock, and the results aren't great.
