The 2007 Nissan GT-R (R35) is the standard model in the GT-R model range, powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8 litre V6 which generates 473bhp.
It is also the first four-wheel drive car to have its transmission located at the rear. This results in a distribution of torque to the rear wheels varying from 50 to 98 percent, eliminating the previous generation's understeer weakness.
The GT-R's performance is on par with the latest supercars and is one of the fastest cars to lap the Nürburgring with an incredible 7 minutes and 26 seconds. It received a facelift in 2011 along with a boost in horsepower.
Need for Speed: ProStreet
The Nissan GT-R has a good acceleration and firm handling. It is superior to the Nissan GT-R Proto despite having a lower price tag. Players are recommended to use the car for Grip. The stability provided by the all-wheel drive layout make the GT-R also useful for Speed events.
Need for Speed: Undercover
With a high top speed of 243 mph (391 km/h), it is slower than the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, however, it lacks acceleration in comparison to other tier 1 cars.
Super State Cruiser
The TCPD utilises Super State Cruisers based on the Nissan GT-R. During the mission Grand Theft 5-0, the player is tasked with delivering a Super State Cruiser. It is not equipped with performance upgrades and a nitrous kit.
Need for Speed: Shift
The GT-R appears in Need for Speed: Shift as tier 3 car with a price tag of $165,000 and a performance rating of 10.50. It is unlocked after collecting 80 Stars and is capable of a Works conversion.
The GT-R offers stable and precise handling, which can be useful for difficult corners. It is one of the most controllable cars within its class, given the fact it rarely becomes loose whilst turning.
The high weight of the Nissan GT-R affects its acceleration, which is weaker than seen by a few tier 3 cars such as the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. With a Works conversion, this minor issue can be eliminated and the Nissan GT-R can become a very competitive race car, better than the SpecV.
Need for Speed: Nitro
The R35 GT-R appears in Need for Speed: Nitro as a Class A car. It is rated 4 in both speed and handling; 5 in acceleration; and 3 in both drifting and strength.
An R35 GT-R with a unique livery can be unlocked as a Collectable Car for use in both Arcade Mode and Career Mode, once the player finishes the Gold Cup Grand Prix in 1st place.
Need for Speed: World
The GT-R before the patch on May 30, 2012 suffered from severe understeer whilst turning at any speed due to a high weight. It also had a good acceleration and top speed.
Currently, the GT-R can turn better than before, but is still featured with a heavy weight. Its handling is up to par with the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4's, meaning the GT-R can take most corners in the game at a fairly high speed. It also has a quick acceleration that is comparable with lower rated class A cars and an average nitrous boost. Top speed is 190 mph (305 km/h).
The GT-R is useful in pursuit events and partly competitive in multiplayer races, because of having a better handling than other lower priced Class B pre-Tier 3 cars such as the Audi R8 4.2 FSI quattro, although it might still need upgrades.

Shift 2: Unleashed
