Nissan GTR. The Epitome of Performance
Godzilla! Even you think I am talking about the monster of a Hollywood movie, assigning that attribute to the Nissan GTR is not a problem. The name can instill fear and surprise in the mind of anyone. The true monster can permanently plaster a wide grin on the driver's face. The swanking supercar is a brute drag race beater or a track machine rolled out on the road in a delightful package. Nissan introduced GTR at the 2016 Auto Expo and launched the car in following year looking at the growing feedback for the car. Since it caters to a niche segment, this is not everyone's cup of tea. The car on the road can literally turn heads wherever it moves and the adventure of planting the right food to the floor for blasting this mean machine to incredible speeds is truly an awe-inspiring moment for anyone. Luckily, I was able to drive this Japanese missile of my friend when I first visited Mumbai last year. And since it is Mumbai you can't take risk at busy hours, even the city does not sleep at night. Nevertheless, we set our journey at the midnight for the good all-around visibility. Now it was time that the motor should dance on the tunes of your foot. The supercar is propelled by 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine that musters 570PS and mind blowing torque of 637Nm. The interesting fact about this engine is that it is hand built by only five dexterous engineers known as 'Takumi' (master craftsmen) in Japan. The car when connected to the super smooth ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive gearbox can offers a ballistic acceleration time of less than 3 seconds for performing a quick dash of 0-100kmph. The car can reach the top speed of 315kmph which is insane to say the least. While the performance cannot be described in words, the interiors of the car is a lot comfortable unlike other supercars with leather draped dashboard, plusher seats and a meaty steering wheel which doesn't let you lose grip while taming this bull on the track. Then there is multifunction touchscreen infotainment system which not only synchronizes your music amplified by Bose surround sound system but can also display a lot of information related to vehicle's functions such as boost pressure, range and fuel economy tracking, engine temperature, throttle position and a lot more. The carmaker has adopted a minimalistic approach and has designed the cabin as clutter free to avoid distraction on road. All in all, the performance is killing, so the price of Rs. 2 crore.
