Who else could it be, but the top car and bike enthusiast in the entire Bollywood, John Abraham! John Abraham’s Nissan GT-R makes him the owner of the most powerful car in the Bollywood industry. The car costs about 2.3 crore rupees, and is the only Japanese supercar in India. How does 562 Bhp from a twin turbo 3.8 liter petrol engine sound? Then you have 630 Nm of absolute torque, a 0-100 Kph timing of under 3 seconds, a 6 speed twin clutch automatic gearbox and all-wheel-drive system to top it all off.
But John Abraham’s GT-R is even more special…
That’s because he has the ‘Black Edition’, a one-of-a-kind version of the GT-R, that nobody else in India has. The edition essentially is a cosmetic kit that adds black detailing to many elements of the car. John, who is also Nissan India’s brand ambassador, was the first customer of the GT-R here.
The car went on sale late last year, at a sticker price of 1.99 crores. Only The GT-R is imported from Japan as a completely built unit.
It serves as a brand builder for the Japanese automaker here, and is the most expensive Nissan you can buy in India.
Sachin Tendulkar also owns one…
But unlike John, Sachin took the private import route to get himself the GT-R. In fact, Sachin bought his car in 2012, a full 4 years before Nissan officially introduced it to India. Sachin is a huge car aficionado and owns a lot of really fast cars. In fact, it was no less than a Ferrari 360 Modena that he sold in order to make way for the GT-R.
John’s got another really fast car as well…
And it’s another supercar. John owns a matte black Lamborghini Gallardo. The Gallardo, which was Lamborghini’s best selling supercar, is no longer made. The version John has uses a 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10 petrol engine that makes 550 Bhp of peak power and 560 Nm of peak torque.
A rear wheel drive layout and a 6 speed automatic gearbox makes for torque transmission. Lamborghini also sold the Gallardo with a all-wheel drive system, and a 6 speed manual gearbox option in India. Ex-showroom prices ranged between 2 to 3.5 crore rupees.
