Newport Convertible Engineering reveals their Nissan GT-R Cabrio

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 25, 2014

If Nissan didn’t listen to our prayers and offer a convertible version of the GT-R, Newport Convertible Engineering decided to make our dream come true and announced that it will offer a cabrio version of the Nissan GT-R a.k.a. Godzilla. Although there aren’t too many details available, Newport Convertible Engineering released on their website three renderings with their custom GT-R cabriolet.

One of the design consists of a double hump similar to the one on the Porsche Carrera GT. Another design consists of a classic cabriolet without the safety roll bar while the third proposal includes a fixed roll bar.

We have no details regarding the price tag but if you consider to get a brand new 2015 Nissan GT-R and chop its roof, you’d better know that the new Godzilla comes with a $101,770 price tag.

This means that besides the $100k you will also have to pay Newport Convertible Engineering for their work. It might be an expensive car, but you can be sure it will be unique. Almost forgot to tell you that the 2015 Nissan GT-R comes with the 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 that delivers 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque.

Moreover, it offers a fuel economy of 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway thanks to the advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission.

If you want a more expensive version of the 2015 Nissan GT-R, you can go for the GT-R Black Edition, which costs $115,510 or the GT-R Track Edition that is offered for $115,710. Nissan also charges $1,595 destination and handling fee.
