We haven’t heard much about the inevitable next-generation GT-R supercar, but we can expect it’s going to offer ballistic abilities to those lucky enough to drive it, particularly on racetracks. Nissan says why do that when you can sit in it and have it drive you around the racetrack. Huh?
Renault took a look at their contracts, decided that the Renault–Nissan Alliance entitles them to have the GT-R’s twin turbo V6, so Renaultsport built the best mid-engined race car around it to get something that’s faster than a GT3 GT-R.
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.
Step One: get a tree. Step Two: hook the tree up to a Nissan GT-R. Step Three: engage launch control and, wait, this isn’t so simple.
The Nissan GT-R is a tricky car to understand. That is, if you go on the words of car reviewers alone.
I am proud to announce that I have officially sold my Nissan Skyline GT-R. This means I will no longer accidentally open the passenger door to my normal car when I’m trying to go somewhere.
I’ve found it surprisingly difficult to sell my Nissan Skyline GT-R. It isn’t due to a lack of potential buyers. There are many potential buyers. It’s just that most of them think that “ur” is an appropriate way to shorten the word “your.”
I recently took my Nissan Skyline GT-R to CarMax for a used vehicle appraisal. This is the least likely place you’d expect to see a Nissan Skyline GT-R, except possibly for the member parking lot at your local VFW hall.
You may remember Nissan’s Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, which debuted in both Gran Turismo 6 DLC and real-life form at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. Now it’s back again for the Tokyo Motor Show, and it’s very, very red. I’m a fan.
It’s not every day that you get to test the veracity of a dubious automotive claim made by an entire nation of car companies for more than a decade. For me, that day was last Tuesday.
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.
It has now been four months since I purchased my newly imported 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R. Yes, folks, that’s right: it has been 120 days since I began coming into your homes and offices and telling you what it’s like to be mad tyte JDM, yo.
At the wheel of this hillclimb-prepped 2009 Nissan GT-R is none other than the impossibly kind racer and Motor Trend hot shoe Randy Pobst. Thankfully, he’s alright. Here’s how this crash happened to one of the best in the business.
A car with pedestrian roots beating the established purebreeds — this is the story of the current Nissan GT-R and the Porsche 911 Turbo before it.
Nissan went through a lot of trouble to develop a twin-turbo hybrid 3.0-liter V6 for their GT-R LM Nismo Le Mans racer. What’s the sense in only using an engine like that in a race car? None, so as many suspected, Nissan will use a version of that engine in the next Nissan GT-R.
If you watched the World Cup last year, you might remember the name Andrey Yeshchenko from Russia’s team. Apparently he’s better at soccer than he is at driving, because he just completely destroyed his Nissan GT-R in a high-speed crash into a pole.
Drive a really light car and you’ll appreciate all the levels of brimming communication and agility low mass brings you. But there are some big body automobiles that just make heft work.
Daigo Saito does not screw around with drift cars. Here’s his new 1000 horsepower R35 Nissan GT-R.
[Before there was the Nismo GT-R LM, there was the Nismo GT-R LM. This is a one-off homologation special registered in the UK so that Nissan could race at Le Mans back in '96. Photo: Nissan]
They call the start of a drift the 'initiation.' This might be the most extreme I've ever seen.
