Nissan has constantly raised the high performance bar for others to try and follow. The original 'Z' cars were the forerunners to the race to win buyers over with high performance and handling in an affordable package that had style on its side. The popular Twin Turbo 300ZX V6 while powerful and agile for its bulk, never really compared to the All Wheel Drive 'Godzilla'
The Nissan GT-R Turbo AWD with twin turbochargers is the most feared competition if you drive anything else. The Skyline GTR range has a long history of race bred performance. The Japanese 0-300 km/h record has been smashed again,
it was 17.64 seconds by the HKS R33 GT-R in 1997,
but is now 13.00 seconds by the Veilside R32 GT-R in late 1998.
(HKS was not present in 1998).
It took 1435 kg, 657 metres to reach 9700 rpm in fifth gear at 300km/h.
That is a quarter mile of 9.67 seconds, 0-100 km/h in 2.76 seconds,
0-200 km/h in 6.62 seconds. No doubt it will fall again!
