Nissan GT-R "Tank" Rendered as War Machine That Will Blow Your Mind

It seems that, as Nissan prepares the retirement of the R35-generation GT-R, the internet keeps delivering wilder and wilder virtual incarnations of the supercar. The rendering we have here comes to deliver the freshest example of this kind, taking the idea of a GT-R's firepower to a whole new level.

Coming from digital artist Jonsibal, the pixel play sees the Nissan ditching its wheels for a set of tracks. The move obviously also brings a massive ride height boost, not just making the GT-R appear more imposing, but actually increasing its rugged terrain capacities, albeit strictly in the world of 1s and 0s.

In the weapons department, this Nissan GT-R has something for every type of action fan. With the R35 having always been criticized for its hefty scale footprint, at least the example rendered here would never have to worry about such details.

And, in case you think the battle theme is too much for a supercar, we'll remind you the world is currently in the midst of an R35 quarter-mile war. The latest piece of action related to this comes from US developer T1 Race Development, which is aiming to bring Godzilla into the 6s car club - here's the story in case you missed it, with the images to your right being a teaser for this.

This pixel rearrangement is obviously not the first time when somebody figures out the boxy styling of the R35 GT-R can serve as a brilliant starting point for an assault vehicle.

The most famous example of such a contraption, this time one that's much closer to the real world, comes from the GT-R starring in the Elysium movie.

You can check out the Godzilla-turned-battle-monster in the piece of footage below, which, among others, zooms in on the valve-fitted Fi Exhaust hardware fitted to the supercar, so you'd better turn up the volume before reaching for the "play" button.
