The Nissan GT-R is a high-performance sports car and GT (grand tourer) with some of its editions referred to as supercars. It is produced and sold by the Nissan Motor Corporation. Incredibly expensive, the GT-R is priced above the outgoing Nissan 370Z coupe roadster sports car and its upcoming replacement, the seventh generation of the Nissan Z.
The Nissan GT-R is a globally-sold model replacement for the Nissan Skyline GT-R. The Skyline GT-R was only manufactured in Japan, and it was exported to only a handful of markets. During its production run, it earned the nickname “Godzilla” due to its monster performance.
Aside from its abundance of performance, the Nissan GT-R is also known for its customization options and special editions, with over a dozen editions and packages available over the years. Altogether, this repertoire of the GT-R finds rivals in the Acura NSX, the Audi R8, the BMW i8, the Jaguar F-Type SVR, the Lexus LC500, the Mercedes-AMG GT R, and the Porsche 911 GT3.
