Forza Horizon 3: Godzilla flashback

Yes, there is now a recently facelifted Nissan GT-R offered in Forza Horizon 3 but before driving the current version, let's take a trip down memory lane on the previous facelift circa 2010 to 2016.


Okay, when I drove the previous facelift of the Nissan GT-R in the original Horizon four years ago, I had a sensation to think that it was a major improvement over to the one that was launched since 2007. As you know, next year's going to be the R35 GT-R's 10th anniversary so what I'm going to do with this one though is to make the most of it out of Godzilla's anatomy. As a car built from a hermetically sealed factory, it became the last name for speed. The body, the brakes, the 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine, the steering, the dual-clutch gearbox, everything works like this car means it.


Speedo boys who are enjoying the previous facelift of the R35 Nissan GT-R are pleased that it was listed as one of the cars that come with upgrade presets. In fact, it comes with a special body kit courtesy of Liberty Walk and with this body kit, one squint and you'll notice that it has a close resemblance to Brian's GT-R from Fast and Furious 6...or so I thought. I know this body kit looks similar to the one from the movie but for sharp-eyed speedo boys, it wasn't nearly as "Brian's car" they've hoped for, but who cares about it. With all that erectus dominus dominated on every bit of Godzilla's tough body, and in the subject that I'm on vacation leave, better hit it to the streets to show everyone the "way of the road" but first...


Anyone familiar with this design I made back in Europe in the previous Horizon 2 game? Yep, that's the one but this time, a new Ritsuko Akizuki from THE IDOLM@STER Platinum Stars was made to keep up with the times. So with a fresh new update on a familiar design I made, some major adjustments to be made to make it more competitive and here's the thing. Because this car's four-wheel drive, even trying to max it up to over a thousand horsepower won't try to kill you and you can still survive driving it unless if you're on a catastrophic understeer, of course. Anyway, here comes the R35 GT-R with a Liberty Walk kit in action.



Even when you made it up to over a thousand horsepower, which sounds scary if you're in a rear-wheel drive car, that GT-R can still survive like a big boss. So, now that you know about the previously facelifted R35 GT-R circa 2010 to 2016, next time, let's focus on the 2017MY GT-R and I can't wait to see how it behaves.
