The world has always appreciated Japanese engineering, the technological applications used for the common public has touched lives but lesser would u have heard about Japanese engineering ripping the racetrack apart, well let me hold your thoughts there and introduce the Japanese Samurai of sports cars the ever decisive Nissan GT-R, first launched at the Japanese motor show in 2007, and the successor of the Nissan skyline GT-R series but minus the skyline badge, comes with the signature four circle rear lamps and the sleek front lamps suits well with the masculine bodywork.
The new Nissan GT-R has twin turbo 3.8 litre v6 engine replacing the older straight six, the company opts for the four wheel drive system removing the four wheel steering system, the new GT-R features a new revised engine producing a roaring 530 brake horse power and 612Nm torque from the 3200 to 6000 rpm backed up by a dual clutch transmission with a 6 speed gearbox. The special fact about these cars are that the engine are handmade so each of the specification mentioned above can vary to a certain extent and the power produced from these engines is so enormous that the tyres slip out from the wheel rim so to avoid those incidents the wheel rims are knurled.
The Nissan GT-R is a highly in demand because of the extent to which the car be changed from its stock version ,in popular culture the car has been seen being boasted by Hollywood movies such as the Fast and the Furious ,ride along and many more. As far as the performance is concerned well the company has been very competitive to every challenges made up against the company.
