Nissan will build just 45 examples of this 45th Anniversary GT-R

It’s been 45 years since the release of the original Nissan Skyline GT-R, so to celebrate, the Japanese automaker has announced this special commemorative edition.

Based on the newly updated 2015 Nissan GT-R in Premium trim, the 45th Anniversary edition is done up in a unique shade called Sil…

Nissan GT-R goes on Rockies Alberta adventure with Epic Drives

Years after its original debut, the Nissan GT-R remains a much-feared, well-regarded entry in the sports car landscape. Sure, many of its original competitors are onto new generations these days, but Nissan has continually improved the GT-R, giving it meaningful tweaks almost every year since it…

Nissan GT-R hits 327 km/h on public highway before it all goes wrong

We are going to start with the disclaimer: do not try this at home. Ever.

That covered, we’ve been intrigued with a video that is making its rounds on the enthusiast forums. Shot from a dash cam, with a full performance overlay, it shows a modified 800 horsepower Nissan GT-R (with its…

Performance Redefined: Nissan GTR

I spend a lot of time on various car forums on the internet, and I always enjoy clicking on the car comparison threads because they bring me the most amount of enjoyment. You see, I love watching people argue on the internet, as long as I’m not involved. Car comparisons always have good intentions to begin with, on the internet or in real life, but they typically end in a shit show of fanboys trying to justify why their prized possession is better than someone else who owns a competing model. I have a theory which explains why this happens.

It’s very simple, the theory is that there are only 3 personality types that describe every car enthusiast in the world. While everyone is primarily 1 of these 3 types, they can dabble in the other categories but, in the end, they will argue to the end based on their primary personality. Let’s break it down.

Is This Performance Concept the 2016 Nissan GT-R?


Nissan had teased last week a new vehicle that would become the 149th Nissan vehicle to join the Gran Turismo car list and since over half of the vehicles are GT-R variants its not that far fetched to assume that this latest concept vehicle they have teased is a GT-R Concept Vehicle of some sort. Could this be a preview of the next generation Nissan GT-R? If so, Nissan has shown that their concept vehicles are not that far off from production vehicles.

Not much is known about the next generation Nissan GT-R other than the plan that Nissan has to include a hybrid powertrain and if this teaser is any indication, may borrow some design cues from their Le Mans Prototype, the GT-R LM Nismo. The waiting game continues for more information as the announcement expected today did not materialize and instead we are being told that June 16th is the next date to mark on our calendars.

From Nissan’s Press Release:

LOS ANGELES – On Monday, June 16, we will reveal the next chapter in our Nissan story to an audience that has always shared our passion for performance.

Nissan To Unveil New Car In Gran Turismo On June 10th

Fairlady Z to GT-R: Nissan’s Gran Turismo history (and future)

Nissan USA just posted this picture on their twitter showcasing every single vehicle that is a part of Gran Turismo’s ever growing list of cars. The current tally of Nissan branded cars sits at 148 with the 149th Nissan vehicle to be unveiled June 10th according to the chart. What’s crazy is that about half of the cars are some sort of Skyline or GT-R variant. It leads me to believe that the car that is going to debut in a few days is likely another GT-R of some sort. Based on the low profile, it doesn’t appear to be the next-generation GT-R, but is more likely an updated race car, perhaps the 2015 Nissan GT-R GT500 or some sort of special edition of the existing model? Could it be just another concept vehicle that we’ll see at the next car show? Perhaps the 2014 LA Auto Show?

We have a higher resolution version after the break if you’re interested.

Nissan GT-R NISMO Makes North American Debut

Nissan unveiled the newest edition of its GT-R halo car back at the Geneva Motor Show, but last week the GT-R NISMO made it’s North American debut at the New York Auto Show. As we revealed last year the massaged 3.8L twin-turbo motor puts out just under 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 55 horsepower and 18 lb-ft of torque.

Pricing was announced back in February and if you’re interested in picking up a GT-R NISMO, it’ll set you back $149,990 or just over $151,585 after destination and handling fees. It will go on sale July 31, 2014 along with the GT-R Track Edition which comes in at a more moderate $115,710 ($117,305 after fees). Canadian pricing has not been confirmed but with our dollar dropping Nissan may revise the differential that the current GT-R pricing has.

I have to say, the matte grey GT-R NISMO that Nissan brought to New York looks a lot better than the white press pictures they released. The carbon fiber treatment just looks more at home on the darker car and the wing doesn’t seem so out of place. Check it out in the gallery.

Modified Trabant takes on Nissan GT-R in 1/4-mile battle

The little yellow guy in the right lane above with the “Flitzer” licence plate looks like a Trabant 601 wagon and it’s called a Trabant, but it’s got little to do with the impoverished East German runabout that did its part to drive Communist ideals further into the ground. You’d almost be…

2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo N-Attack Package track tested at Fuji

Nissan grabbed headlines last year when it debuted the GT-R Nismo and did a blistering 7:08.679 lap around the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife. As it turns out, the GT-R that did that round made use of parts that lowered its weight and improved handling. Nissan calls the extras the N-Attack…
