National Geographic came up to Nissan more then four years ago and asked the automaker if they could do a documentary and follow them around through the process of developing a car. They wanted to be able to capture the whole process for its â€œInsideâ€ series. Nissan said sure, “We’ve got something for you. It’s called the GT-R.”
So National Geographicâ€™s crew was given an all access pass to Nissanâ€™s top secret designs, manufacturing and engineering facilities and was there at the test track. Alongside them was Nissanâ€™s CEO Carlos Ghosn. The whole documentary is 47 minutes long and talks about every detail that was put into the GT-R to make it come to life.
Obviously it skims over a few things and as with any television show it has been dramatized through certain parts of it. You have to make the process look a little bit interesting. But when you look past it you will find that it is very interesting to watch and makes you want to find a Nissan GT-R and take another look at the craftsmanship that was put into it.
