The Nissan GT-R Egoist has to be one of the worst named cars
of all time.
The Encyclopedia Britannica - the definitive word gurus of the
world - defines 'Egoist' as "an egocentric or egotistic
person". Basically it's someone who is vain, self-obsessed
Therefore it's clear that nobody at Nissan bothered to flick
through a dictionary during the naming process - just to be
sure they weren't going to insult their customers. They may
as well have called it the Nissan GT-R Narcissist, GT-R Selfish
or GT-R Loves Himself.
Anyway, aside from the name the GT-R Egoist is a world class
motor. It combines the dizzying performance of the GT-R, with
a more sophisticated and luxurious cabin which can be tailored
to suit the buyer's tastes.
That means there is more leather, softer leather, more carbon
fiber and lots more color options, 20 to be precise. Other features
of the GT-R Egoist include an 11 speaker Bose sound system,
and a special Japanese lacquer GT-R badge mounted in the center
of the steering wheel.
The GT-R Egoist also features a dry carbon fiber rear spoiler
(also used in the SpecV), lightweight forged aluminum-alloy
wheels, and a titanium exhaust system.
