The Nissan Skyline GT-R is definitely one of the most highly regarded performance cars ever produced in Japan. With exceptional performance to outmatch the very best from Europe, the GT-R name is recognisable all around the world.
Among car enthusiasts it earned a nickname worthy of its performance; ‘Godzilla’. It is suggested that the Godzilla name was first made in a review of the R32-generation Skyline GT-R from Australian publication Wheels. The reference also came on the back of the GT-R’s incredible success in the Australian Touring Car Championship.
The GT-R Premium and GT-R Black Edition's advanced VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo is rated at 545 horsepower, while the exclusive GT-R NISMO delivers 600 horsepower. Along with the 55 additional horsepower and 18 additional lb-ft of torque, the GT-R NISMO features enhanced aerodynamic features, body reinforcement and ultra-precise handling.
Taking inspiration from the sports car’s nickname, artists HT3Image and Millergo CG have dropped two photoshops of the R35-generation GT-R being stalked by Godzilla, the monster originating from the Japanese film industry.
