Nissan updates the GT-R with Anniversary Edition, strengthened NISMO


When the R35-generation Nissan GT-R debuted in 2008, it shattered records and broke hearts in truly heroic fashion.

Nissan never really did anything about the service and repair costs, but they did hammer away at driver-satisfaction problems with a succession of Black Editions and Track Editions, culminating in the sublime, seam-welded post-facelift GT-R NISMO which was priced like a supercar and almost indecently enjoyable to operate.
