In what appears to have been a high-speed crash, a Nissan GT-R was damaged beyond repair on the Bangalore-Hyderabad Highway. The driver of the Nissan GT-R lost control while trying to avoid a pedestrian (a kid) crossing road which led to the crash. Nissan’s Zone Body construction and Advanced Air Bag System, which includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor, came to the rescue and despite the severe crash, the driver of the vehicle escaped without any major injury.
The INR 2 crore (ex-showroom) supercar, however, wasn’t so lucky. The images reveal the severe damage that the supercar suffered and it’s unlikely that it will ever roll on the streets again. In case you’re curious to know, the GT-R’s 3.8-litre 24-valve twin-turbocharged V6 engine – each handcrafted by its own TAKUMI technician – is tuned to deliver 570 PS of power at 6,800 rpm and 637Nm of torque.
How can you save your prized possession from suffering such fate?
- Despite all the power available on the tap, adhere to the recommended speed limit on the highways
- Always follow lane discipline and avoid overtaking other vehicles (especially long vehicles) from the left
- Always keep an eye for jaywalkers (especially children). You’d always find someone sprinting across the highway
