The long wait will soon be over after Nissan Philippines Inc. (NPI) announced that 'Godzilla' will be making its Philippine debut at the 6th Philippine International Motor Show.

NPI first announced their plan to introduce the GT-R to the Philippine market last November 2015. When launched, the GT-R will be available in Premium trim as standard guise. In addition, the model that will arrive in the country will be the updated 2017 model year that first debuted at this year's New York International Auto Show.
