Watch - Nissan Teases GT-R Nismo "World Record" in Video

Teaser video pairs a Godzilla with a wide open airstrip.

The Nissan GT-R has set many records and it appears the automaker is attempting to break another. Nissan recently released a teaser video titled "GT-R NISMO - World Record," which features a GT-R Nismo race car and an announcement that a world record will soon be broken.

The short YouTube clip from Nissan Middle East shows the GT-R Nismo being unloaded off a truck and onto an airport runway. Its twin-turbo V-6 fires up before the GT-R launches off into the distance. That said, it's obvious Nissan is attempting to break a straight-line record. It could be top speed, or perhaps it's a standing mile record.

Not much else is provided from the video description: "Coming at you in full force! No pause button here, just a #GTR #NISMO on a mission! The anticipation got us glued to our screens #NissanME #OMGTR." The automaker hasn't set a date on when this record will be set, so stay tuned for the big announcement, assuming Nissan does indeed reach its goal.

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte.

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent

You don’t find many older Hondas in the sort of condition that this 1985 Civic 1500S was found in and, if you do, and you’re immediately hit with throwback vibes and rich memories of piloting the same sort of chassis during “spirited driving encounters” on the streets 30-or-so years prior, then you don’t let it

That a Suzuki Samurai is being featured by Super Street shouldn’t come as a complete shock to some of our long-time fans who know we love capturing something unique. Sure, it’s not a common occurrence and in fact, I can’t recall ever having featured one in the past, but this example, owned and built by
