Nice Try, But This Ain’t A Real Nissan GT-R Convertible

If you haven’t seen a GT-R Convertible before, you’re not alone. And while Nissan cannot (and will not) be bothered with chopping the roof off the Godzilla, someone else has.

The video below that was posted on Instagram by 2ncs depicts what looks like a GT-R Convertible sitting among a selection of Lamborghinis and Ferraris.

Everything seems legit until you take a closer look at the caption that reads “CG.” That’s right, ‘computer generated’, or rendering in plain English. The same social media channel has already posted various digital images and videos of different rides, including a six-wheeled Lamborghini Urus and even a Bugatti Chiron with a Fiat Multipla face. So, while it does look real, the GT-R hasn’t actually lost its head – although the job done is good enough to fool most of us.

While Nissan hasn’t expressed an interest in making an open-top GT-R, a California company named Newport Convertible Engineering tested the market with some renderings five years ago. That, however, seems to be as far as they went, as there isn’t any R35 cabrio out there, at least not to our knowledge.

Now, here’s a thought: if anyone else, namely Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and the rest, can make open-top versions of their supercars, why should Nissan not follow suit? Would it be something acceptable, maybe even desirable, by customers, or an insult to the long-established GT-R ethos?

    I lost my job from my organization several months back. I was eagerly started seeking for another job. I desired something which is credible and genuine. I was certainly not interested into internet scams just like quickly becoming “rich over night” that turned into marketing schemes in which you will need to firstly make interested customers and then sell a product to friends or any person to make sure that they will be in your team. Now, I started earning $21,000-$22,000 every 30 days by doing online based work. It does not require any technical knowledge. You do not need to sell anything at all. It is as simple as being on any search engine like google or doing copy paste job. This on-line work provided me freedom to do the job from anywhere. I am able to spend more precious time with my wife and children and can go out for beautiful family vacations.Here’s how you can get started—-> JMP.SU/fKg5i
