This video of Nissan’s Godzillas hits all the right feels


I wanted to share this when it first came out a few months back cause not only was it so well shot, with the right vibes and representation of the GT-R, but was also one of those rare official videos where all the generations have been brought together.

What really got to me was the first 27 seconds of the video where a group of kids were relentlessly chasing down an R32 GT-R on foot, taking a closer peak at it and before loudly uttering “G-T-R lou ah” (a very cinapek way of saying GT-R) in amusement – something we would all have done the same had we saw one as children.

What’s also very special about this video is that the R33 and R34 weren’t just any GT-Rs; the R33 was a NISMO 400R edition introduced in 1997. It had bigger turbos, an upgraded exhaust system and intercooler to name a few.

It made 400 hp hence the name, where 0 to 100 km/h is done in just four seconds and top speed was over 300 km/h. Only 44 units of the 400R were ever built.

The other rare car in the video is the R34 V-Spec II Nur in which Nissan built just over 700 units of – one of the very last of the R34s before Nissan introduced the R35 GT-R. Named after the Nurburgring where it was developed, its N1 racing engine had bigger turbos and higher boost – resulting in over 450 hp. Find out more on the R35 in the video here!
