You can run, but you can’t hide. No action-packed movie would be complete without a police car chasing the villain. But in reality, hot pursuits such as these have been taking place--- not just between a cop and criminal but also by those guilty of over speeding or violating certain traffic rules.
Dubbed as “Copzilla” (with a code name Police Pursuit No.23), this Nissan GT-R packs an incredible 565hp (421kW) and 469 lb-ft (635Nm) powerful torque. It’s the same 3.8-liter biturbo V6 stock engine like any Nissan GT-R but it’s been added with coil overs and a new set of 22-inch spiked wheels. Very fitting to the “Copzilla’s” highly menacing police livery!
Outside, the Nissan GT-R Police Pursuit is dressed up in black with several gold accents in stripes. The Skyline Metro badge appears on the door panels and hood while the roof and front grille has a scrolling light bar in LED. Apparently, the Skyline Metro graphics design is a tribute to the Nissan Skyline, the first GT-R which came about in the late 1960s.
To give the “Copzilla” a more imposing stance, Nissan has modified most of the GT-R’s standard body. It now comes with a push bar at the front with a caption that reads: “move over or I’ll do it for you”. That, aside from the much wider body parts in carbon fiber like the rear wing, side mirrors and fender flares.
Moreover, this police patroller practically has got everything it needs to cruise the “Skyline” without a hitch. Nissan has equipped the GT-R with an SSP 2000B siren, an ES100 loud speaker, NACA ducts, large rear wing, a message board, Micro Pulse lights, Slim ILS interior light bar and a Federal Signal Valor Light Bar on top.
All in all, Nissan is more than ready to hit the stage this April 12 as it has quite an impressive range to entice their audiences. Along with Nissan’s latest GT-R Track Edition and the 370Z Heritage, the Japanese automaker is of course setting the stage for the Copzilla while in New York.
Nevertheless, the Track Edition GT-R will be featuring quite a number of upgrades including a Nismo-tuned suspension system, a new rear spoiler in carbon fiber and 20-inch forged aluminum wheel set. The 370Z Heritage Edition on the other hand, will also feature a handful of exterior upgrades that are a throwback to the legendary Nissan 240.
