The 2017 GT-R received a power bump of 17PS and 9Nm of torque compared to the previous 2011 iteration. It’s also got new titanium quad-exhaust pipes that is not only light, but also sounds better according to Nissan.

Aesthetics-wise, the Godzilla touts a bigger V-motion grill up front as well as a new look for both its hood and bumper. These are not only for show, but for better air flow as well.


The interior experienced a makeover. Its steering wheel, seats, door trims, and parts of its dashboard have been wrapped with Nappa leather which adds a fresh accent. Additionally, there’s the bigger 8-inch touchscreen display complete with an updated infotainment system.

This sexy beast will be exclusive at Nissan High Performance Center in Quezon Avenue with prices starting at Php7,350,000.
