The GT-R, AKA Godzilla, is the fastest and most hardcore car that Nissan makes for consumer use today and has been for quite some time. The Nismo model turns up the heat even more with a specially-tuned 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 that has 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with standard all-wheel drive and a dual-clutch six-speed transmission with three selectable drive modes.
There are even a few luxuries on board the high-priced Nissan that include an eight-inch touchscreen running Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, a Bose premium audio system, and active noise cancellation.
Unfortunately for people who like to customize with options, what you see is what you get. The GT-R Nismo isn’t available with packages to upgrade safety features or technology, but for buyers of this car, the 600 hp is probably enough.
The Nismo GT-R has lofty competition that comes from McLaren, Porsche, and even Ferrari. One look at the price tag, and we see why: The Nismo model is priced at almost twice as much as other GT-Rs, landing at $212,435 before destination or taxes.
