The Nissan is revered as a reputed build of car all over the world, but there are few people who know about the racing history of the car or about the Nissan’s racing pedigree. Most reputed car manufacturers have at one time or the other come out with racing cars that have made their organization famous all over the world and Nissan is no different. Japan is famous for producing some of the leading cars of the world and Nissan is one of them, the difference being that this organization is considered to be among the topmost in Japan.
As far as racing pedigrees go, one does not have to look beyond the Nissan Skyline GT-R. This car has won more than 200 races and this includes winning the all Japanese Car Championships for five consecutive times, a tough feat to attain. A racing car needs to have a special aerodynamically designed body and with every passing year the body of the Nissan Skyline GT-8 has been improved so that it can deliver top-notch performance in the races.
Not just the aerodynamics, even the rigidity of the car has seen radical changes since the first time it was introduced. This car also has the envious record for holding the unofficial lap record for a production car. It is hence not amazing to find people selecting this car when they want to participate in competitive racing. They know that with the Nissan Skyline GT-R, they can never end up being losers.
Nissan is working on a new GT-R, by the way, expected in 2011!
