The Nissan GT-R is based on a unique Premium Midship platform which was created exclusively for it. The car is so special for the company, that they not only created a new platform for it, but also allow only a special few to build its engine.

Takumi Kurosawa, Tsunemi Ooyama, Izumi Shioya and Nobumitsu Gozu – these are the sole assemblers of the engines that power every GT-R plying on the streets in both Japan and worldwide. It’s not “a larger and heavier V8 or V12” engine, Nissan says, but rather a compact yet powerful twin-turbo V6 engine. Each engine is hand-built at the company’s Yokohama plant in Japan.

The 3.8-litre VR38DETT twin-turbo V6 engine puts out 404 kW (550 PS/542 hp) and 632 Nm (64.5 kg-m) of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual-clutch transmission. The enormous engine output allows the GT-R to clock 0-100 km/h in 2.84 seconds and hit a top speed of 196 mph (315 km/h).
