There’s a long list of fast, erogenous and expensive cars out there in the world, more than enough to fill the parking lot at Google HQ and Warren Buffet’s birthday party on the same evening.

But only a handful of such elite high-performance cars has become legends in their own time.
The 2017 Nissan GT-R is one of those legendary machines.
Designed and built in Japan, the GT-R is a unique beast. Nicknamed Godzilla by its faithful, the all-wheel drive Nissan GT-R is one of only four supercars on the market that does not wear the badge of an exotic or luxury car brand (the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Dodge Viper and Ford GT being the other three). And yet, it’s one of the fastest, most exclusive cars on the road. It’s also better than ever for 2017, receiving the longest list of mechanical and design improvements since it first hit the street back in 2007.
