Meet the four men responsible for building all of the engines for the Nissan GT-R. In Japanese culture they are known as Takumi, masters of their craft. Like the hand-picked team that assembles the Lexus LFA, these men were chosen because of their over 100 combined years of automotive manufacturing experience. Each engine is entirely hand assembled from start to finish by the same technician. Their nameplate is then attached to the front of the engine to symbolize the personal pride that goes into the assembly of Nissan’s flagship engine in the plant where the company started.
