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

    Sixth-generation Mustang gets a leaner face, revised suspension, improved safety equipment and a more power V8. We see how it fares on southern French roads

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.

    Super saloon deploys four-wheel drive to improve every facet of its driving experience. Faster and more capable than any, and more exciting than most, of its celebrated predecessors

    More power and an intoxicating soundtrack have breathed new life into our love affair with the biggest, baddest Range Rover Sport variant
  • First Drive

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
