The name Nissan GT-R conjurs images of a monster on four wheels rip-roaring through a track, devouring anything that dares to stand in its way. It's been this way ever since it earned the Godzilla moniker and established a storied legacy. 

Behind this myth, of course, is years of intricate engineering and design geared toward making the perfect track killer. With the 2017 version, Nissan also sought to create a car that's comfortable for driving on a day-to-day basis. The goal was to create something that's part racing behemoth, part grand tourer. 

While we were at Nissan Philippines' (NPI) GT-R track day, we asked two influential people about the inner workings of the legendary car: NPI president and managing director Ramesh Narasimhan, and the GT-R's chief product specialist Hiroshi Tamura. Learning about the car's different settings and abilities was (almost) as interesting as our laps on the track. 

To learn more about how Godzilla works under the hood, press play on the video above. Hefty price tag aside, it truly is a car that can suit everyone.
