Most would redundantly refer to the Nissan GT-R NISMO 2020 as Kaiju, but an apt term would be the Shinto god of thunder and lightning called “Shin Raiden”.

It’s the most appropriate term when the car’s VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 roars like thunder when passing you. As it goes by, it speeds up like lightning driving past onlookers and other cars.

Nissan GT-R NISMO is inspired by the ultimate GT-R which is another derivation from the GT-r series. Only a few are going to be sold in the United States which is bound to be controversial whether it would be street legal or not! To make it more interesting for you fanboys out there, will unveil little tidbits about Nissan’s supercar.

Whatever road it runs on with the excellent suspension for good dampening and roll resistance for energetic maneuvers. Without it, the GTR-Nismo wouldn’t be able to soak in all the humps and bumps.
