VIDEO: 2017 Nissan GT-R – Autocar. Is the new GT-R is still a Giant-Killer?

The supercar-slaying Nissan GT-R – ‘Godzilla’ to its friends – has just been given the biggest and most transformative facelift this generation car has had.

Most obvious is a new interior, with seats, dashboard and infotainment system to push it more upmarket – and into line with supercars like the Audi R8 V10 plus and Porsche 911 Turbo S.
