Nissan has released a new video that gives us a glimpse at how the GT-R's twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine is built.

The process starts with four master craftsmen - Izumi Shioya, Nobumitsu Gozu, Tsunemi Oyama and Takumi Kurosawa - who hand-assemble an engine in a clean room at the company's Yokohama factory in Japan. The workers, known as takumi, have over 100 years of combined experience which helps them to piece together the 374 different components in approximately six hours. Once the engine is competed and has undergone an inspection, the workers install a named plaque as a "pledge of quality."

According to Takumi Kurosawa, “By putting my name on the engine block, I strongly feel I represent Nissan and am regarded as a builder of GT-R engines. I feel a strong pride.”

Kurosawa also said a skilled person can learn to build a GT-R engine in three to four months but precision is a must as the car can be used for shopping or driving at 320 km/h (199 mph).
