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.
Director Luke Huxham sent us his new short film, Heart vs. Head, and it’s maybe the most beautiful thing we’ve ever seen. The tribute video was made for Motorhead Magazine’s “Japan Tuned” issue and features an HKS R32 and R35, driven by NOB Taniguchi.
We've driven the Nissan Juke R in Dubai, so it's with authority that we can say the 545-horsepower GT-R-powered crossover is as wild as it looks. We can also say with authority that we're not surprised Nissan found enough people willing to fork over the serious cash necessary to make the company produce this mental…
Last week we told you about the world's fastest R35 GTR through the 1/4 mile, built by AMS Performance. Since we last spoke about this car, the company has managed to take their 1300+ horsepower creation from a low nine second car to a high eight second car and produced this interesting video to go along with it.
Not only does AMS Performance's Nissan GT-R produce over 1300 horsepower at 35 pounds of boost, it knows how to use it. After watching the very impressive 9.05 second 1/4 mile seen here, it isn't too surprising to find out this Nissan is the fastest R35 GT-R in the world.

Conceptually, the budget supercar ethos the Nissan GT-R embraces is at odds with the monkey-butlers-wearing-diamond-studded-cummerbunds spending philosophy of the Middle East. Thus, the $220,000 2012 Nissan GT-R VVIP was created. It's the Goldschlager of supercars.
A group of Malaysian car enthusiasts were on the prowl when a new R35 Nissan GT-R crashed into a Golf GTI, causing moderate damage to the Volkswagen but leaving poor Godzilla a burning, exploded mess on the ground.
As if Godzilla's proportions and alien design didn't already make the car eye-catching enough on the road, someone decided it was about time to cover their Nissan GT-R in a bright gold wrap. Someone shoot the leprechaun.
The AMS GT-R Alpha 9 already broke the 10-second barrier, and now the 900 AWHP Alpha 10 just hit a remarkable 9.33 at 153 mph in the quarter-mile for a new R35 GT-R record. Does this count as gauge porn?
The Stillen GT-R from last year's Targa Newfoundland featured a set of AP Racing carbon ceramic brakes (same ones found on the Koenigsegg CCX). Watch those rotors glow like Godzilla's angry eyes as the GT-R chases down an STI.
The Switzer P800 Nissan GT-R makes over 700 HP at the wheels, nearly double that of the comparatively plain-Jane GT-R. Luckily that's at all four wheels, because we drove it through both snow and ice.
After Nissan's GT-R launch control issues the automaker decided to remove the system from the new 2010 model Godzilla. They should have just followed Audi's lead. The folks over at Inside Line have a long term Audi R8 in their fleet and noticed after using launch control the system asks in a polite manner to please…
Nissan execs have apparently told the reporters over at Edmunds Straightline that the 2009 Nissan GT-R will be the first and last GT-R with the "launch control" system as the company is tired of dealing with the warranty nightmares that have convinced people they can't do GT-R donuts. Said one high-ranking exec:
