The power of a supercar doesn't just sit in its impressive numbers of its jaw-dropping design. Instead, machines that below to this genre have the power to inspire and create stories that remain in the garage that is an aficionado's heart forever. And the ink tale that brought us here is one of the spiciest of the sort, with this revolving around the Nissan GT-R.
The owner of an R35 GT-R that maintains a street configuration decided to have Godzilla tattooed on his forearm, with this obviously causing a stir on social media.

In fact, as you can notice in the Instagram posts at the bottom of the page, Cristian Plaza, the gear head who turned to ink to keep his Nissan GT-R close (supposedly) forever didn't settle for one of those small sketches that need inside info to tell a story. Oh no. The man's forearm now shows a specific GT-R (more on this below), together with what drag racers would consider a right-sized turbo.

Now, this R35 is actually Alpha Omega. We're talking about the development car of aftermarket specialist AMS Performance. In its current state, the machine delivers well over 3,000 ponies, with the velocity creature having held multiple 1/2- and 1/4-mile records over the years.

The Alpha Omega GT-R was one of the pioneers of the platform, deserving credit for tuning the Nissan halo car into one of the American drag racing realm's favorite children.

For the record, the world's craziest GT-Rs, which packs the kind of power mentioned above, can now deliver 6s quarter-mile runs, while going past 250 mph in the half-mile sprint.

Then again, this GT-R tattoo isn't the craziest we've talked about - that title goes to the Dacia ink art we discussed back in 2014 - haven't heard of Renault's budget brand? That will only make the tale more captivating.
