Watch Nissan's brand new sports car coming down the line at Tochigi
6 December 2007

Alright, it probably takes slightly longer than 150 seconds for Nissan's Japanese assembly guys to build a new Nissan GT-R, as driven by our own Steve Sutcliffe only last week. But it only takes two-and-a-half minutes to watch Nissan's own video showing how it's done, and you can do that by clicking the link below.The footage is a must-see if you're thinking about putting your name down for a new GT-R. More than anything else, it shows the extent to which the new car is hand-built, and the attention-to-detail that goes in to producing the kind of build quality that Steve experienced.

Want to see more? Released only yesterday by Nissan was footage of the GT-R's twin-turbocharged V6 engine being assembled. You can see the timing chain being fitting, the valves and plugs going in and the cylinder heads being fitted at Nissan's Yokohama engine facility, below.

It all serves to whet the appetite further for the Nissan GT-R's arrival in the UK. Roll on March 2009.

Our Verdict

Nissan GT-R

The Nissan GT-R is not a cheap car, but it’s better value for money than cars that are seemingly as fast

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
