The Nissan GT-R, Goliath or Godzilla – whatever you call it, it’s still an icon

March 7, 2018

A car rich in heritage and legacy but always reinventing itself, is the secret to the success of the Nissan GT-R. From its humble beginnings to its nickname of ‘Godzilla’, the GT-R has always been a car which never conforms to expectations.


This year Nissan is proud to announce the next addition in its line of supercars, the 2018 GT-R. ‘Hailed as one of the world’s all-time great sports cars’, by Autotrader,  the Nissan GT-R has a reputation and honour to defend in its latest addition. No need to worry though, like always, the Nissan Technicians and craftsmen have reached the bar, carried on accelerating past it, raising it to new heights.

With new technology features including the introduction of Apple Car Play and increased horsepower means this car is that bit faster than the previous 2017 model. The 2018 GT-R has it all.  We’re not braggers here at West Way but when it comes to the GT-R we just can’t help ourselves, it’s such a fantastic car. But don’t take our word for it…

Nissan is releasing a more ‘affordable’ grade of the GT-R tracing back to their roots where the GT-R was often seen as the most affordable of the supercars. The new Pure grade of GT-R does exactly what its name suggests. The Pure is designed for the connoisseur of power and driving, with an interior to match, the major difference between the Pure grade and the Recaro grade, is your seat, well specially crafted Recaro® seats.

The GT-R boasts impressive acceleration, in fact so impressive, it is one of the fastest accelerating road cars in production, with a 0 to 60mph time of 2.7 seconds.

The 2018 GT-R features a brand new 8-inch multi-function display, with the latest generation of NissanConnect satellite navigation and entertainment system. To truly appreciate the quality of your music, and what fine taste you have in it, then turn your 11 BOSE speakers up, and combined with active noise cancellation, it will be as though the band is giving you your own personal serenade. The GT-R also has 20” Y-Spoke forged alloy wheels as standard, who doesn’t love 20” alloys.
