The Nissan GT-R has been a beast of a car since the start of its automotive life. With 0-60 times to embarrass far more expensive cars, and grip around corners to leave everything else in the dust, this car is no joke. After all, a car doesn’t get nicknamed ‘Godzilla’ by just being okay… Well, the highest spec ‘Godzilla’ is the Nismo, and the 2020 GT-R Nismo is here and better than ever.
A Real Racecar For The Streets
Many manufacturers think about track use when designing high-end sports cars. They build road cars that can also really handle themselves on the track, and that’s pretty good. The GT-R is a little different though. This car is a race car meant for the track, that can also be driven on the road, and that’s even better. It’s a high performing race car above all else, and it’s easy to see why. The wheels are not just boring Nissan manufactured wheels borrowed from one of their economy sedans. Instead, it has 20″ wheels forged in aluminum, built by one of the best racing wheel companies, RAYS. These RAYS are wrapped in Dunlop rubber which are wide and extremely grippy, allowing you to attack corners at full force.
The Nismo seats are designed similar to a bucket seat in race cars. It has aggressive side bolstering for the legs, hips, and shoulders. This is because the GT-R corners so hard it could slide you out of a normal seat. Powering this monster is a very familiar Nissan 3.8 liter twin turbo V6. It sounds glorious, and to say it accelerates like a bat out of Hell would give bats far too much credit. It produces a frightening 600 horsepower and 481 pound feet of torque. With all this and even more, it’s understandable to see why so many have called this car Godzilla.
To explain everything the GT-R has to offer would take far too many pages. So instead of taking the time to read about it, find a way to saddle up Godzilla, and see why the 2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo is better than ever before. Learn More
