National Geographic Follows Production Of Nissan’s GT-R

Written by tonks on October 29, 2008

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 “Inside” series. Nissan said sure, “We’ve got something for you. It’s called the GT-R.”

So National Geographic’s crew was given an all access pass to Nissan’s top secret designs, manufacturing and engineering facilities and was there at the test track. Alongside them was Nissan’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.
