While the Nashville Predators are locked in a fierce Stanley Cup Finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Nissan has gone and done something very special with one of the competing teams.
With Nashville being home to Nissan North America headquarters, it’s only fitting that the automaker teamed up with the Predators by donating a very special GT-R to the Nashville Predators Foundation. The Japanese supercar that was donated was dubbed “Predzilla” and features a fitting livery.
“Nissan is proud to call the great city of Nashville home for our North American headquarters – and we are thrilled that our hometown Predators have come so far this season,” said José Muñoz, Chief Performance Officer, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.; Chairman, Nissan North America, Inc. “This supercar is dedicated to Nashville and Predators fans all over the world. We hope it raises a lot of awareness and funds for the work of the Predators Foundation.”

The Predators Foundation aims to better the city’s community through resources and financial support that is donated to local youth-oriented organizations. Since its inception in September 1998, they have awarded almost $5 million to the community and $1 million of that was donated during the 2016-17 season.
So, what’s going to happen to the Predzilla? It’s currently being auctioned. If you’re interested in placing a bid, you can text “Nissan” to 52182 or visit www.Nissan.gesture.com. Coming along with the car are two 2017-18 season tickets and a parking pass for your new GT-R.
