Godzilla!

From Nissan’s website a picture of the very formidable GT-R. This is one of the few cars where the drivetrain excites me more than the looks. I think it’s an attractive car, but the AWD and the powerful twin-turbo V6 pushing out 565 HP and 467 LB-FT of torque are very appealing. I know a couple who race their Porsches and are very dismissive of anything that isn’t a Porsche. They call the GT-R a “numbers car” meaning, I think, that it doesn’t have the right sound or something. Sorry, everyone is entitled to their opinion and my opinion is that the GT-R is a hell of a car.

Yes, I believe that this is not the first car to which the “Godzilla” nickname was applied. Still, I think the moniker fits. The GT-R is getting a little long in the tooth (as is the 370Z) and some of us are very curious to see how or if Nissan will replace the car. Enjoy it while it’s here.
