The strength of this car has given rise to its nickname of "Godzilla." The car has 565 horsepower, compared to the 124 horsepower of an SR Sentra, and a twin-turbo engine with a transmission of 6 speeds with a double clutch.

Nissan announced that Godzilla´s characteristics allow it to achieve the same speed of a Formula 1 car in the gear changes - 0.15 seconds in the R mode, one of the three driving modes that can be operated.

The engine of each GT-R is produced with the care and precision of a Takumi, a specialized engineer who builds the heart of Nissan GT-R in an artisan way and not through mechanized processes.

The Takumi places an aluminum plate in the motor with his name, which serves as a reminder of the skill, quality and experience that he used in every moment of his labour.

The Nissan GT-R 2017 is available on request at a price of $2.6 million pesos and is available in three exterior colors: Blaze Metallic, Pearl White and Metallic Grey.
