Nissan GTR is soon going to be launched in India with a price tag of around 1.2 crores. Thus far owing to undesirable fuel quality and inadequate service support, Nissan did not consider bringing the successor of legendary Nissan Skyline GT-R. Now the scene appears to have turned around.

Nissan GTR 03 frontJapanese manufacturer’s halo product GTR was introduced in Japan in 2007. First GT-R prototype was unveiled in 2001 Tokyo Motor Show, as a preview to what 21st century GT-R would look like. Further redesigned concept GT-R Proto was revealed in 2005 Tokyo Motor Show, which was very close to production model.

Nissan GT-R comes in Premium and Black Edition, former comes with body-colored rear spoiler while latter gets carbon fiber rear spoiler. Both models are equipped with automatic on/off high intensity discharge (HID) headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights & brake lights, power folding dual heated body-color power outside mirrors, flush-mounted aluminum door handles, four 5″ exhaust outlets with polished tips and UV-filtering solar glass.

Nissan GTR 04 rearThe Godzilla pushes out heart-throbbing 545 bhp & 628 Nm from its 3.8-liter twin turbo 24-valve V6 engine. Every motor is hand crafted by one of four master technicians called Takumi. Even the rear-mounted dual-clutch gearbox is assembled by hand. GT-R reaches 0-100 kmph in under 2.9 seconds, by the immense power unleashed to all four wheels. F1 driver Narain Karthikeyan and Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar would know better about the thrill of driving a GT-R, as they own one each. Nissan GTR records fuel economy of 16 – 13 mpg (6.8 to 9.78 kmpl).

Nissan GTR 02 frontProduction for entire world is limited to about 1,000 cars a month, as the the vital mechanicals are hand built. Nissan would have to build a performance centre in India to facilitate service and maintenance of GT-R. It is certainly going to be festive when GT-R finally launches here. Stay online.
