The Nissan GT-R, nicknamed “Godzilla” is a beast equipped to decimate almost everything standing between it and victory. If you want to get your hands on this , you will have to lose your pocket.
This week, Nissan announced that the top-of-the-line 2017 GT-R NISMO will start at $174,990. With a price tag like that, it is firmly in supercar territory.
All GT-Rs are powered by a 3.8 liter, twin-turbocharged VR-Series V6 engine. Here, the engineers at NISMO – Nissan’s in-house performance division – have massaged the hand-built motor to churn out 600 horsepower. There’s also a standard titanium exhaust system.
In addition, the folks at NISMO have lightened and retuned the GT-R’s suspension to offer better performance.
Nissan has not yet released the official performance figures for the new NISMO GT-R.
