Nissan's AWD Baby Godzilla - The GTiR.
Nissan's little JDM Ball tearer was a neat surprise in the early 90's when it was released.
Most foreign markets recieved the limp wristed boring Pulsar but the Japanese Domestic Market got the full dress AWD turbo terror that showed a sign of things to come.
With it's Darth Vader looks and bulldog stance it displayed it's intentions clearly. Powered by Nissan's popular SR20Det. The Gtir even predated Subaru's popular WRX and was built as a homologation model for Nissan to enter the WRC (World Rally Championships)
Nissan used their Attessa AWD system which is a short way of saying: "Advanced Total Traction Engineering System for All-Terrain"
Whats happening and whats cool in the world of custom Street cars
