Vehicles of various models have always been popular in movies. Visually, the 2017 Nissan GT-R also comes with styling updates, larger V-Motion grill, new lip spoiler, front and rear bumpers on the outside and a luxurious Nappa leather interior on the inside. Only available in a two-door coupe version, the second-generation (C110) Nissan Skyline GT-R was the sign of things to come.
Finally, the limited-production GT-R Nismo comes with a stiffer body structure, a front fascia with more cooling area and downforce, side skirts and rear wing, Recaro seats, lightweight forged alloy wheels, a more aggressive suspension calibration, and an uprated version of the V6 engine good for 600 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque.
Since the GT-R's debut, Nissan has cleaned up the interior and many switches and buttons have been replaced by a single knob on the center console that controls the infotainment system. At the rear, has the iconic quad circular LED tail lamps and make the supercar look recognizable even from a far distance.
The GT-R's interior impresses with a feature-laden cabin full of high-tech amenities. The GT-R LM NISMO was initially introduced to the world in a commercial during Super Bowl XLIX, which set an all-time TV audience viewing record in February 2015. GT-R features active sound enhancement system to monitor engine speed and vehicle dynamics.
Yes, Nissan has added Nissan Skyline GT-R to the GT-R over the years, upping the power and features and interior quality and price tag to match , but at the end of the day it's amazing that this more-than-decade-old machine is still as good as it is. Underneath the new shape, the Nissan GT-R50's engine draws on on Nissan's GT3 racing experience , featuring a Nismo-enhanced 3.8-litre V6 VR38DETT which produce an estimated 530kW of power and 780 Nm of torque.
Round the back, the four taillights look deeply cool when viewed at night, and the Skyline motif carved into the upper part of the rear bumper is very retro-futuristic. The new hybrid system could add a significant chunk to the asking price, however, potentially pushing entry-level cars close to the £100,000 mark.
The GT-R features two of the most advanced All-Wheel Drive and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) systems, which transmit the power evenly to the front and rear axles. Tyre wear is an issue on cars which are used hard, and the low front spoiler of the R34 often comes in for some damage.
