The aforementioned output will be on entry-level variant and if customers want extra they can surely get it too. Nissan GT-R exclusively came with paddle-shift dual-clutch transmission. However, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG004S will be offered with six-speed manual gearbox transmission. An auto box will also be available as an option. Jim Glickenhaus gave his view on why he chose this engine. According to him, Nissan GT-R engine is lighter than the V8 engine and “practically bulletproof”.
