One of the more expensive car models to roll into our storefront, the latest generation Nissan GT-R was spotted one day and I couldn’t wait to come down and take some shots. The GT-R is definitely a top-tier sports car in terms of its full-body appearance and JDM aura, especially in stock. There’s no need to do much custom work to bring out its potential but a few lights and accessories here and there certainly don’t hurt. @wildboyZLA came by to spruce up his side marker lights with LED light bulbs.
A few weeks ago I posted some JDM cars on social media featuring anime stickers and full body wraps from my second ever carmeet experience. Coming in not knowing what to expect, I arrived with a friend and armed with a piss-poor Oneplus One camera phone, I began taking pictures of almost all the cars that I could.
When the people think about the GTR, most people think about the Nissan GTR nicknamed, “Godzilla.” They believe that this is the only GTR around and that the name GTR only belongs on a Nissan, but little do people know that they weren’t the first ones to put a GTR badge on a car.
The Nissan GT-R is something of a legend and it looks like this is the last facelift for the current generation of the Godzilla. The GT-R has had certain upgrades dedicated to it every year, and last year was the fine tuning for the "GT" over the "R", meaning that the both the speed and stability benefited from tweaking the suspension. We saw adaptive LED headlights and a slew of new exterior and interior colors, most befitting for the legend.
So what can we expect for the 2016 model? You will see bespoke Bilstein DampTronic shock absorbers. custom springs, Dunlop exclusive tires, and an updated suspension. After this generation, we may see a hybrid GT-R in 2017/2018 with an electric motor.
