It has a double wishbone suspension than other Nissan cars, which adds to its sportiness and comfortability when driving on curvy roads.

Although the car may look small, the power output is colossal, with around 280 hp at 6400 rpm and 271 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. Actually there are some differences between models in terms of power specifications

The Skyline can reach a top speed of 250 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds.

Safety & Reliability

Although this car is one of the sleekest and prettiest road performers ever, it's also very safe. It was made with safety in mind, and there are many features packed into the car for that exact purpose.

This includes airbags deployed from the front seats, a rigid steel frame, central locking, and side impact beams in the doors to support your body during a severe collision.

The Skyline GT-R also comes with a three-point belt, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), and anti-theft alarm.

Fuel Economy

A car with a turbocharged engine is always going to be more fuel-friendly than a non-turbo engine.

The GT-R boasts 22 mpg on the highway and 16 mpg on the city. Its fuel tank capacity is 65 L on the previous generation and 72 L.

Interior Design

The design of the GT-R is what sets it apart from other cars and why it's so unique. Its vast body with five seats and hatchback allows easy entry and exit.

The car also has a rack and pinion tilt steering wheel, analogue, speedometer, tachometer, leather seats, and 180 to 423L trunk space.
