One of the most entertaining drivers in Japan over the past few years has been Kazuya Taguchi, an Up Garage employee (kind of like super Autozone) who also runs in Formula Drift. Now he’s come stateside in this 4.1-liter R35 Nissan GT-R, which makes more power than you’d ever need.
Our undying love for R34 Nissan Skyline GT-Rs will never truly be satisfied, but this pretty wallpaper of a rare 2000 V-Spec edition will do in the meantime. Only 1,200 were ever made. This one has a full Nismo body kit, HKS Hypermax IV coilovers, and rare Nismo LMGT4 wheels—and we like it.
In case you didn’t know, Japan celebrates Thanksgiving Day, too. It’s not really the same as Thanksgiving in America, it’s more thanks for labour and production. But nevertheless at the end of every November the Japanese celebrate ‘Thanksgiving Day.’ I bring this up because right on the weekend following Thanksgiving…
You Skyline’d your Skyline GT-R too hard and smashed into the back of an unoccupied Italian food truck. It happens to everyone but now you need to replace some parts on your precious Mecha-Godzilla. I guess it’s off to eBay to find some parts for your car.
When you’ve pick up a car used, have you ever wondered about the life it had before you? Sometimes you can gather scraps of information from the car itself (a leftover CD or impressions in the upholstery from child seats), but unless you have a contact, a lot of it becomes speculation and guesswork. One GT-R owner is…
It’s old. It weighs as much as an apartment building. It doesn’t have the fancy badge that usually comes with its price tag. Despite all that, the Nissan GT-R is still—still!—one of the fastest cars in the world, capable of beating giants in the six- and even seven-figure price range. It’s not cheap either, but for…
On Sunday afternoon, Sharif Abdelbaset was driving his 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo on the famously windy road known as Tail of the Dragon when his engine cut out. Just minutes later, his car was engulfed in flames.
Nissan is no stranger to cool Gran Turismo tie-ins with its GT Academy program, but this one is as large as real life itself. They hooked up a GT-R to a PlayStation DualShock 4 controller and let it loose for remotely-controlled flying laps around Silverstone’s National Circuit.
I thought I had seen the end of it last March, when AMS Performance’s Alpha G GT-R ran a quarter-mile in 6.937 seconds at 196.27 mph. I thought wrong.
The Nissan GT-R has come a long way since its introduction back in 2007. It’s not only the go-to choice for rich kids buying their first performance car or the one all of the teens like to talk about, but it’s also just genuinely an incredible car that can still throw punches with the newer competition.
The original Hakosuka Skyline GT-R is among the most beautiful, charming automobiles ever made, one of Japan’s first world-class performance cars. I’ve always liked them as objects, but I never really knew if they were good to drive. I didn’t need to worry, apparently.
The idle thoughts of every young driver turns any old industrial part of town into an imagined race track, fully lit sideways in some sports car you can’t afford. Well, here are those dreams made real.
For years, us Americans dreamed of all-wheel drive Nissan Skyline GT-Rs, cars that we’d only see in Gran Turismo, banned from our roads. But now that more and more Skylines are legal under the 25-year import rule, we’re getting more and more of these things, including the non-AWD models.
Chris Harris revisited the Nissan GT-R nine years after he first drove one, and despite its timeless sensation, its over-engineered driving mechanics have always been a trick to master when pushing it.
All JDM Motors, a Japanese tuner and import car parts store in North Charleston, SC, was accused of smuggling illegal cars into the United States after authorities discovered a 1996 Nissan R33 GT-R hidden in a shipping container.
“All the cool things people say about these cars are true.”
