Supercar parades are always fun to be a part of and we’ve had our share of them over the years. But recently, Singapore hosted what could very well be one of the largest gatherings of Nissan GT-Rs you’ll ever come across.
Over 30 Godzillas were seen rampaging through the streets of the Asian country and if you couldn’t tell the difference between the fictitious Japanese monster and the all-too-real Japanese supercar, you probably wouldn’t think that Singapore is a nice place to be in at the moment.
But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Singapore is a beautiful country that was made more appealing recently with the cavalcade of GT-Rs driving in convoy from the Marina Mandarin Hotel all the way to Aviation Park Road, a good-sized distance that would have filled your desire of seeing more GT-Rs in one place than you would in your lifetime.
Here’s the best part, though. Considering how expensive cars are in Singapore (the cast of Fast & Furious 6 will attest to this), the people riding these GT-Rs know just how special of a supercar Godzilla really is.

Every year, Nissan rolls out updates for the GT-R R35. For 2013, Nissan added a "Track Pack," which hones the handling of the GT-R even further. New lightweight alloy wheels and additional brake cooling ducts in the front bumper have been provided. The brake rotors on the rear axle are cooled using special channels that help ventilate heat.
The suspension system has been overhauled with more track-ready performance, and the introduction of adjustable dampers for comfort is a welcome move. Opting for the "Track Pack" makes the GT-R lighter, thanks to the new wheels, Recaro sports seats in the front and a rear-seat delete.
For 2013, Nissan engineers have tuned the GT-R’s 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 to produce 542 horsepower, which is 12 horsepower more than the previous model, and 466 pound-feet of torque in a wider rev range.
Mid-range torque delivery is improved on the 2013 Nissan GT-R , as well as fuel efficiency. The transmission has been reworked, while spring rates in the suspension have been tweaked for better handling and high-speed stability
The U.S.-spec GT-R consist of a base model that comes in at just over $96,000 and a "Black Edition" that cost upwards of $106,000.
