NISSAN GT-R TO TAKE MONSTROUS ROLE IN TOP GEAR LIVE
- GT-R supercar takes on Godzilla mantle in Manga-sequence
- Riotous 370Z sportscar models on display
Nissan’s all-conquering GT-R supercar is set to play a Japanese mythical icon in a Manga-style street racing sequence at this year’s Top Gear Live theatre premiered at the MPH Prestige & Performance Motor Show.
The 478-bhp machine, often dubbed ‘Godzilla’ due to its origins and monstrous performance, will play the legendary movie character as it takes on all contenders in a truly explosive driving display.
“Ever since we drove the new GT-R through the streets of Tokyo on the television programme, I’ve wanted to incorporate one into a stunt driving sequence on the Live show, so I’m thrilled to finally have the chance,“ said Top Gear Live’s Executive Producer, Rowland French. “This driving sequence is going to blow the audience away.”
The sequence will form part of the 80-minute theatre production featuring the three Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
