Megafactories Profiles the Nissan GT-R


How does Nissan build its flagship supercar? National Geographic finds out in the latest episode of "Ultimate Factories".

National Geographic regularly goes behind the scenes of some of the most impressive automotive assembly facilities on its "Megafactories" series. Broadcast in some markets as "Ultimate Factories", the series is now in its fifth season. Of the dozens of episodes which the series has filmed to date, it has visited Bugatti, Ferrari, Porsche, Bentley, Harley-Davidson, Peterbilt Trucks and dozens more. But for its latest installment, the NatGeo program visits the factory in Tochigi, Japan, where Nissan builds the GT-R.

The show is set to air on December 13, but before it does, Nissan and National Geographic have released this preview trailer, less than two minutes long, showing us what it's in store for fans of the supercar-killer known as Godzilla.
