2015 Nissan GT-R [w/video]

Although the first Skyline GT-R from Nissan arrived in 1969, in the 46 years since, there have nearly been as many years without a GT-R as with. The first two generations were produced from 1969 to 1972, the next three generations stretched from 1989 to 2002, and the most recent (just plain GT-R in fact, not a Skyline GT-R) has so far run from 2009 to 2015. That's 25 years that the GT-R has been a member of the material world, and 21 that it has lived in purgatorio. Yet out of those 46 years, the birth of the legend and cult of the GT-R happened primarily in five: from 1989 to 1994,... Read More

    We love Motor Trend's annual World's Greatest Drag Race video. Now back for its fourth appearance, the idea of lining some of the world's fastest cars up for a ten-wide, straight-line, full-throttle run is, well... it's pretty freaking badass. The lineup this year boasts some impressively fast cars to be sure. The group of ten includes the following ...

    "We'll use every driver development tool we have to take them to the next level, but they will also have to step up." – Darren Cox Nissan is aiming to put an American behind the wheel of one of its LMP1 racecars in 2016 as part of plans to grow its motorsports program in the United States.

    Video: GT-R owner finds going 200 mph on a public freeway is asking for trouble
    1410735540

    We are going to start with the disclaimer: do not try this at home. Ever. That covered, we've been intrigued with a video that is making its rounds on the enthusiast forums. Shot from a dash cam, with a full performance overlay, it shows a modified 800 horsepower Nissan GT-R (with its twin-turbocharged engine bored and stroked to 4.3-liters) flying down ...

    Video: Watch this 800-hp Nissan Juke-R savage the 'Ring
    1409330700

    The concept of the 545-horsepower Nissan Juke-R that stuffs the drivetrain of a GT-R into a subcompact crossover is already insane, but Russian company Shpilli Villi Engineering has taken things even further with their own crazy riff on the idea. Its version tunes the engine up to a claimed 800 horsepower, plus a shot of nitrous for an extra 200 hp to put ...

    Supercar slayer. That's what they call the Nissan GT-R. And in many ways it is, even though its price and performance over the years have risen to put it squarely in supercar territory of its own right. In fact, as Evo magazine has been compiling a list of its fastest cars – using the Anglesey Circuit in Wales as its common ground – the GT-R ...

    ETC: Nismo mashes it up with Sentra 370Z and Maxima GT-R [UPDATE]
    1407780060

    Nismo was a tuning division once content (or required) to restrict itself to just one or two models at a time, but these days Nissan is taking the gloves off and allowing its motorsport department to tune just about everything's it's got. Now in its thirtieth year, Nismo tunes versions of the GT-R, 370Z, Juke and Versa Note, and will soon be working its ...

    A big part of what makes a supercar super is how it makes you feel, but the performance stats and bragging rights are undeniably a big part of the equation as well. Which means you can't ignore the fact that, even with its price ever escalating, the Nissan GT-R makes minced meat out of European exotics costing twice or three times as much. That's the ...

    Most of the vehicles you can drive in Gran Turismo 6 are digital renditions of actual cars that you could (at least in theory) drive on the road or track. But Polyphony Digital, the studio behind the immensely popular video game franchise, isn't satisfied with leaving things there, so it's been collaborating with a steady stream of automakers to design ...

    It seems that the Jaguar F-Type Coupe R is the performance coupe du jour. First, Motor Trend challenged it against a Porsche 911 on video to see how it fared. Now, Autocar in the UK is pitting the Jag against the latest iteration of the Nissan GT-R around a small course in a time trial battle. On paper, it certainly looks like the F-Type Coupe is the ...

    Enthusiasts have been clamoring for Infiniti to build a car like the Q50 Eau Rouge for years. In concept form, it employs the GT-R's much-loved 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6, tuned to produce 560 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque, with the whole works slid underneath fetching luxury sedan bodywork with carbon fiber aero aids. At this point, the model is ...

    For those wondering why Nissan named its coming Le Mans Prototype the GT-R LM Nismo, colliding the two worlds of sports car and prototype racing, an article in Autocar might have the answer. The deeper union is explained by saying that the next-generation GT-R will use "hybrid technology that will closely align it" with the GT-R LM Nismo. The point could ...

    The Nissan Zeod RC hybrid racecar is certainly cool with its pointy looks, we're excited to see it run, but it isn't built to win races so much as push boundaries. But we might not have too to wait long for one of the Japanese brand's vehicles to claim an overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as well. The company is announcing the GT-R LM Nismo ...

    It's too bad that the Super GT series from Japan doesn't have wider availability in the US. It's full of recognizable cars and consistently high-quality racing, but it's not widely covered. A new video from GT Channel sheds some much-needed light on this less well-known motorsport and shows just how exciting it can be. The video highlights the second ...

But what about on the racetrack, where GT racers are all homologated to the same general specifications and tuned with an eye toward fairer competition? Turns out ...

As it turns out, the GT-R that did that round made use of parts that lowered its weight and improved handling.
