The Nissan GT-R is a supercar that starred on Top Gear when they had a race across Japan: Jeremy in the GT-R and Richard and James on the Bullet Train. The car managed to win by getting to the finish (a buddah of Road Safety) by just over 3 minutes.

Clarkson said that the car's engine has to be made in a vacuum so that the parts do not microscopically expand, for absolute engineering precision and performance. It does not have swivel-headlights because the lights cannot keep up with the speed the car changes direction.
