The latest and greatest iteration of Godzilla still packs a 600hp twin-turbo V6, but has trimmed out weight thanks to an ample serving of carbon fiber for its front and rear bumpers, front fenders, hood, roof, side sill covers, trunk and rear spoiler. It also packs aero and grip improvements.

Making Donuts

In honor of #NationalDonutDay, Nissan decided to decorate some donuts in the best way possible, by using the tires of a Nissan 370Z NISMO to send the sprinkles flying through the air and onto more than 300 freshy-glazed donuts. Mmmm. Burnt rubber and fried dough.

DR30 Nissan Skyline: The Red Panda

Petrolicious features Jay Kho and his 1983 R30 Skyline. The series that revived the Skyline model, Jay and many of his fellow gearheads pined for the R30 even more because it was never sold in the US. There are days when Jay still can’t believe that it’s in his garage.
