King of the monsters

The GT-R is nicknamed "Godzilla," mainly because of its ability to perform like a monster. But it also sticks out on the street and in parking lots like a giant, radioactive lizard. Even in our test car's stately Deep Blue Pearl paint (along with a classy light gray and black interior) teenagers gawked, fellow commuters whipped out smartphones to snap pictures, and I even got a few smiles from the fairer sex. I can safely say that all of those reactions were likely the car's doing. Ian Merritt/ photo
