The 2017 Nissan GT-R Black Edition is an AWD supercar that appears in Forza Horizon 3 and in Forza Motorsport 7.

For the 2017 model year, the R35 GT-R underwent a second facelift consisting of subtle exterior changes and several performance tweaks.[1]


More refined than ever and with even more power to boot, this is the latest model of the Japanese supercar that fans affectionately dub “Godzilla.” The gaping V-Motion grille is the centerpiece of a new front-end look and also provides better engine cooling. Below, the new lip spoiler and bumper enhance what is already one of the most aggressive looks on the road. All wheel drive, massive twin turbos, and so much technology keeping power to the pavement give the GT-R an advantage on any surface. The GT-R may be Nissan’s halo model, but it is no angel.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R uses the same VR38DETT engine as in previous GT-R models, but with a total output of 564 hp (421 kW) and 467 ft·lb (633 N·m). 0-60 mph (97 km/h) now occurs in 2.7 seconds along with a top speed of at least 196 mph (315 km/h), which the Forza versions of the 2017 GT-R always exceed.

The 2017 GT-R features almost identical driving characteristics to the 2012 GT-R Black Edition but has a small power advantage at the cost of a slightly reduced top speed of 210 mph (338 km/h). It also has less upgrade options than its 2012 counterpart due to a higher performance index rating and the lack of a body kit upgrade.


  • In Forza Motorsport 7, completing a race in Suzuka Circuit in the 2017 GT-R unlocks the Monster achievement.
    • This achievement's name is a reference to Godzilla, the monster that the Nissan GT-R is nicknamed after.
