Nissan is bringing an extra-special GT-R to the New York International Auto Show next week that the NYPD will probably get a kick out of.
This is the Nissan GT-R Pursuit 23, nicknamed ‘Copzilla’, which is a unique project commissioned by Nissan especially for the NYC show. It has all the makings of a typical police car including lights, sirens, a police-inspired livery, a brush guard and some menacing dish-style wheels, but also works in some tuning elements such as a huge rear wing and adjustable coilovers.
The Pursuit 23 (In Japanese ‘2’ is pronounced ‘Ni’ and 3 is pronounced ‘San’) is otherwise stock, having received no engine modifications and minimal interior mods apart from a controller for the lights and sirens. The vehicle retains its 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, which produces 562 horsepower and 469 lb-ft in the 2017 model year R35.
This wild creation will be on display at the 2017 New York International Auto Show, which is open to the public from April 14th through to the 23rd.
