    See the blog feature on this -GT-R. No three letters command so much respect. Whilst the first Skyline badged GT-R badged car appeared in 1969, it was relatively unknown outside of Japan until the late 90s, when Nissan’s ultimate creation became the car of choice for the Playstation generation. It’s hard to believe that 2017 will mark the tenth year of production for Nissan’s supercar. There’s a been incremental evolution since the GT-R first broke cover, however the MY17 revisions herald the most fundamental package of revisions yet. Read the Full Article Here

    Hard to believe the GT-R has been around that long. I guess it illustrates how good the engineering and technology was in the original car.

    I think in years to come the GTR will prove to have been slightly ahead of its time. That it still remains competitive in terms of pace, rewarding to drive and well equipped technologically almost 14urs after Nissan put pen to paper is astonishing

    I think they are a lovely car despite what some say even right back to older models. If I was in the market for such a car that I will never be I would certainly have one over a willy waving Lambo etc.
    I love this one jay leno had a feature on and think for power and set up 135,000 dollars would be hard to put else where and as said above they will rule the roost until Nissan do it again as they have done since the 240z/r32 days.

    Was the r34 gtr also not famed for being ahead of its time ?

    I don't recall to be honest. It had the innovative display with G-forces and so on but the ATTESA 4wd system had already been used in the R33 and the engine was basically the same RB26 lump as used in the R32/R33 with various stages of progression. Don't think it was the same leap forward from previous cars that the R35 was.

    Might be a bluff to cover themselves, but I remember reading that the not-exactly-lightweight nature of the gtr was a deliberate part of the way it was engineered.

    I'd well believe it was intentional. GTRs have never been super lightweight cars, I think the chunky presence and hefty feel is part of their character and contributes to the Godzilla tag
