Chronology
PredecessorNissan Skyline GT-R

The Nissan GT-R is a 2-door 2+2 high performance vehicle produced by Nissan, unveiled in 2007.[2][3][4] It is the successor to the Nissan Skyline GT-R, although no longer part of the Skyline range itself, that name now being used for Nissan's luxury-sport market.

History

Between 1969 and 1974, and again between 1989 and 2002, Nissan produced a high performance version of its Skyline coupe called the Nissan Skyline GT-R. This car proved to be iconic for Nissan[5][6] and achieved much fame and success on both road and track.

The GT-R is an entirely new model, sharing little with the Skyline GT-R save its signature four round tail lights. Like some later generations of the Skyline GT-R, the GT-R has all-wheel drive with a twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine. But the four-wheel-steering HICAS system has been removed and the former straight-6 RB26DETT engine has been replaced with a new V6 VR38DETT.[7] Because of the GT-R's heritage, the chassis code for the all-new version has been called CBA-R35,[8] or 'R35' for short (where CBA is the prefix for emission standard), carrying on the naming trend from previous Skyline GT-R generations. The GT-R has also retained its Skyline predecessor's nickname, Godzilla,[9] given to it by the Australian motoring publication Wheels in its July 1989 edition.

Concepts

2001 GT-R Concept at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show
GT-R Proto Concept at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show

Nissan showed two concept vehicles at motor shows before it unveiled the production model: one at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2001, to preview a 21st-century GT-R;[10] and a redesigned one, dubbed GT-R Proto, at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show. Officials said the production GT-R would be 80 to 90% based on the second concept.[11]
