We set out to build a multi-performance supercar accessible to anyone, anytime and anywhere – I believe the GT-R has delivered that promise
The car that was used was in standard trim and had no extra modifications, for the tires they used the standard Japanese market tires. The driver was Tochio Suzuki, he is the chief test driver for Nissan.
