The Essential Specifications
With the Christmas season set in full swing and snow sticking onto the Northeastern roads of the United States. One begs to wonder what Santa would drive in tumultuous, icy weather. The car would need to be fast, plenty of trunk space for the gifts, have all wheel drive, and the ease of video game driving dynamics. Allow me to list the reasons why Santa Claus would choose Godzilla.
Loads of Unbelievable Grip
One feature the GTR does not lack is the ability to adhere onto the road like two pieces of Velcro. The test car above is the 2017 GTR Track Edition and has a starting price of $128,490 USD. I had the pleasure of test driving this beast on the mountain roads of Monticello, New York and the GTR hugged the bends at speed, the same way you would hug your teddy bear when you were a child. The handling gives you a sense of nostalgia as it reminds you of the driving dynamics of Gran Turismo.
Discreet and lite weight design is not the GTR. You can say the same thing about good ole' Kris Kringle. NORAD, North American Aerospace Defense Command, has concluded that Santa Claus is 5 feet, 7 inches, and weighs about 260 pounds. Consider the curb weight of the GTR to 3,915 pounds, and it is easy to make a conjecture that the engineers at Nissan got inspiration from the elves at the North Pole. Look at the color for goodness sake, it should have been called Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer Red. When you see a GTR, you know it is a GTR, it doesn't pretend to be anything else and it is distinct as the essence of Santa Claus.
