Look around from the roof of a Nissan GT-R as it races around the Le Mans track, first on its own then against a GT-R Nismo in this 360º video. You can watch it on Chrome, but it’s way more fun on the official YouTube (iOS/Android) app.

Nissan Juke NISMO RSnow

2016 Nissan GT-R: Speculation

2016 Nissan GT-R: Speculation

Top Speed does their best to extrapolate what we might see from the next gen of Nissan’s $100k supercar. Godzilla is getting a little long in the tooth after all. We especially like the sharper edges, sculpted lighting, and longer wheelbase.

Nissan GT-R: Takumi

Nissan GT-R: Takumi

A look behind the master craftsmen behind the construction of the engine for Nissan’s affordable supercar, Godzilla itself. While Nissan relies heavily on automation, these men still hand-assemble each of the GT-R’s precision engines.

Veyron vs. Juke-R

Veyron vs. Juke-R

Shpilli Villi’s pimped out Nissan takes on the 1001HP king of speed, beating it handily off the line and through the 1/4 mile thanks to its AWD drivetrain, and coming in neck and neck in the mile. Though the Bugatti will soon pull away.

Nissan Deltawing

Nissan Deltawing

Nissan’s experimental Deltawing will run the 24 Hours of Le Mans using a small 1.6L turbo 4 with just 300hp. But with rocket-like aerodynamics and reduced mass, it’s still likely to be a speed demon.

Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3

Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3
