This car’s “Godzilla” nickname surely comes from its monstrous performance.
The Nissan GT-R has been around for quite a long time. Having been introduced in 2007, it’s been more than 15 years since it first shocked the automotive world with its ability. With its all-wheel drive and twin-turbocharged V6, the car was lightyears ahead of its time, and even now, remains one of the world’s most impressive performance machines that can compete with vehicles that are much more expensive and much more extravagant.
While the current Nissan GT-R price, which starts at $113,540, is much more than the original R35 price of $70,475. However, even today, that price is a bargain for the performance that you get, as Nissan has continued to improve the Nissan GT-R specs and make it one of the greatest performance cars in the automotive industry, both in the 2000s and now. The Nissan GT-R 0-60 times have come down from 3.3 seconds to 2.9 seconds, while the Nissan GT-R top speed of 197 mph in 2009 has increased to closer approach 200. That might not be much for all the time, but with its focus on on-track performance, the car demonstrates its peak ability in places other than in a straight line.
When the car was first introduced, the Nissan GT-R horsepower was 480, which was an incredibly immense figure for its time. Now, it remains so, with 565 horses on tap in the 2023 model. This immense power makes up for the Nissan GT-R weight, which has come down from an inaugural 3,908 lbs to a slightly leaner 3,850. While it may have been around for quite some time, the R35 generation Nissan GT-R has been a performance masterpiece since the beginning and still is. No matter which of the R35 GT-R models you choose, you’d be looking at a truly excellent performance car, and over a decade of incredible performance has to be discussed in any R35 GT-R review, let alone the very long history of the predecessors further before it.
