Nissan's 'Godzilla' goes lightweight

Nissan has created a limited edition, strictly two-seater version of it's GT-R supercar, with a special suspension set-up tuned at the famed Nurburgring circuit in Germany, and lightweight, quilted cloth mats in place of the usual rear seats.

Producing 406kW/630Nm, this lightened 'Track Edition' version of the beast, known to its many fans as 'Godzilla', also features special brake cooling guides, and a front spoiler with carbonfibre air ducts.

The bad news is there will be just 150 of these monsters produced, and the extra bad news for local enthusiasts is they'll only be offered for sale in the United States.
