Nissan pays a perfect tribute to the mighty GT-R on its 45th Anniversary

In the realm of supercars and hypercars, there are many vehicles hailing from countries around the world revered as Gods and heroes. Amongst them all however, lives the perfect anti-hero, a beast that’s capable of taking one’s breath away with a single growl. Nicknamed the Godzilla, this brute is christened the Nissan GT-R, a perfect blend of Japanese automotive technology and aesthetic beauty. The car, known to break speed records and necks too, is now celebrating its 45th Anniversary. Having evolved over the last four decades and more, the 45th Anniversary Nissan GT-R is the perfect tribute to a car that remains unbeaten, holding its ground like every bloodcurdling monster should. The 45th Anniversary version of the cult-favourite comes with a special Silica Brass paint. This is the exact trademark colour as the Skyline GT-R M-Spec (R34 Type) from 2001.

To make it stand out amongst its siblings, the 45th Anniversary version also features an exclusive emblem that can be located on the lower part of the interior centre cluster. To top it all, Nissan has given each of these special edition cars an exclusive model plate number in the engine compartment. Being a limited edition version, only 45 units of the 45th Anniversary GT-R will hit stores. Nissan will begin taking orders for the car in early January and will offer them on first-come, first-serve basis. For now, the company hasn’t mentioned any special upgrades to what lies under the hood of the GT-R. The special edition could very well come with the standard 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, hooked up to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. With this, the beast promises to produce about 545hp and 463 lb-ft (627 Nm) of torque. While this one may not stand a chance against the 600hp 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo, the 45th Anniversary will turn heads, probably even more than this unique 2013 “Bolt Gold” GT-R we’ve spotted before!
