“Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” – Lord Acton. The Nissan GT-R is a different sort of a beast, but a true beast nonetheless. The way that this car grips and goes will leave you speechless. This car is mind-bendingly, reason-defyingly fast. It has earned it’s title as ‘Godzilla’ – the king of the Japanese supercar.
But more than that it’s a reassuring, relatively easy car to drive. It’s a beast that purrs in your lap, but to the outside viewer, it looks like you are saddling and riding a tiger! If you’re coming to the Nürburgring, and you need a supercar to drive then this is the way to go. It forgives that missed apex, the early turn in or the wrong gear in the corner, with it’s track ability and power.
The elephant in Nissan’s room – the Porsche’s – are of course great cars too. But rear engines mean weight distribution and physics aren’t on your side. This is ok when you know the track well, but for an overall package? The GT-R has it, every time. Plus – who doesn’t love the underdog?
