Vehicles of various models have always been popular in movies. From far away, it may look like a relatively common Datsun 240Z (Nissan Fairlady Z in the Japanese home market; Datsun was a brand name used in the company's export markets), but the Z 432 variant is something truly special — a factory hotrod with a seriously potent motor, and whose rarity makes it one of the most desirable Z-cars ever.
As Nissan began to tap that desirability, special editions began to emerge, and these are some of the most special Japanese-made cars in history. A common modification is to install the two scoops in the front bumper from the Nismo model and to remove the screen from in front of the intercooler, as a feature of the Nismo cars, as is a small front spoiler on the leading edge of the hood.
It's no longer the scalding supercar bargain it once was, but the GT-R still delivers an astonishing performance profile for $101,685 base. From GT3-spec turbo upgrades to colour choices, bespoke carbonfibre trim, special dampers and anything else a buyer's imagination can conjure, the GT-R50 is Nissan's answer to the apparently growing demand for ultra-exclusive supercars.
Weight went up 100kg, the drag coefficient came down from 0.40 to 0.35 Cd and the V Spec model, like we have here, was fitted with the fiendishly clever ATTESA E-TS PRO system, which integrates control of the driving and braking forces on all four wheels independently.
It's the easiest, least-intimidating extreme performance car I've ever driven. Interestingly, this isn't just a design exercise; Nissan has tweaked the internals of the GT-R Nismo donor car, too. The fifth generation, known as the R34 kept the same 2.6 liter Twin Turbo engine from the previous models, but introduced a new chassis.
Nissan GT-R images reflect that it flaunts the Nissan Skyline GT-R Japanese automaker's latest design language with automatic multi-LED headlamps and the new matte chrome finish V-Motion grille, which has been enlarged to provide better engine cooling and now comes with an updated mesh pattern.
In the following year, Nissan participated the SP8T class with 2 Club Track Edition GT-Rs as works team, which driven by Team Nissan and Team GT Academy , both cars completed the race in 99th and 30th in overall respectively - through they are the only entries in SP-8T class that year.
