24 Nissan GT
Vehicles of various models have always been popular in movies. The 2018 Nissan GT-R performance coupe adds a new, lower-priced Pure model to the lineup. Perhaps the daddy of all Skyline-era GT-R special editions was this, the phenomenal Nismo Z-Tune. In January, 1999, the fifth generation of the Nissan Skyline GT-R was released.
The Nissan GT-R®, of course, isn't an average car. Each Nissan GT-R® engine is hand-assembled by a single technician - and proudly bears a plaque carrying their signature - in a dust- and temperature-controlled clean room much like those used for Formula One racing engines.
It also added acoustic trim and glass and active noise cancellation, which damp the GT-R's august amounts of drivetrain noise by about 10 decibels. The rear of the car keeps the GT-R's familiar circular tail lamps, but carves out the volume around them - giving a floating look.
Sports cars generally require some contortions to get in and out of, but the GT-R is as easy to navigate as a typical coupe. Although many argue that the Nissan GT-R's acceleration figures are unachievable, we've managed 2.9sec in a MY12 car tested at Phillip Island, so 2.7sec claimed with the MY13 and MY14 models is by no means a far stretch.
The rear profile has a huge boot mounted spoiler with stop lamp and four exhaust pipes, with underbody skirting playing its fair share of making the car look sporty here as well. By the time its successor, the R33 GT-R was launched, the Japanese had abandoned any expectation of bringing the car to these shores in an official capacity.
Round the back, the four taillights look deeply cool when viewed at night, and the Skyline motif carved into the upper part of the rear bumper is very retro-futuristic. The new hybrid system could add a significant chunk to the asking price, however, potentially pushing entry-level cars close to the £100,000 mark.
MASTER CRAFTSMEN BREATHE LIFE INTO THE GT-R, CREATING A UNIQUELY HUMAN VISION OF A SUPERCAR. With a nickname like Godzilla, the Nissan Skyline GT-R rivals supercars many times its cost. Since the new Le Mans car is one of the fastest motorsport vehicles in the Nissan Skyline GT-R world, viewers can watch and control the film in slow motion to get a better glimpse of all its components.
