3 days, 3,000 miles, 1 GT-R: Inside Line's Godzilla road trip
According to our friends at Inside Line, there are seven U.S.-spec Nissan GT-Rs in the country at this moment. They have secured one of them, a white pre-production car handed over by Nissan's engineering team. (That's it above with IL's 308 long-termer.) With editors Scott Oldham and Ed Hellwig at the wheel, that car will get driven 3,000 miles over the next three days, and they're going to share the wealth! For added coolness, they'll bring the whip to a few selected Inside Line readers along the way, where the lucky fans will reportedly get to take Godzilla for a spin around the block. If that's not reader-love, we don't know what is. The entire trip's being blogged (and possibly vlogged, it seems) at Straightline, so check in over the next three days to follow their progress. It should be a good read. Here's hoping you get accustomed to that "comfort" mode, guys.
