How amazing is that GT-R!

It may not look pretty but it certainly has amazing technology (like the speed limiter which switches itself off when the GPS knows its on a track) and its performance is phenomenal.

I cant understand how its so fast! Most testers comfortably get it doing sub 4 second 0-60 times, its Nordschleife times are absolutely epic and on Top Gear, it posted the exact same time around the track ( 1 min 19.7 secs)as the F430 Scuderia which is track Ferrari for the enthusiast which is lighter and more powerful!

Thought he had lost his marbles when he claimed it is the new yardstick but looks like he is right!

He downloads a new porn picture every week lol.....

A tuned R32 could no stay with the skyline.....there are to many clever things going on with the 4 wheel drive and power transfer etc thats what makes it so fast....

How would one of these go up aganist a Mk5 R32 with a twin turbo? and all the mods that the Skyline has?
I dont think this would be much of a contest. The GT-R is a smart car, its living with F430 scuderias and setting awesome times on the nurburgring. A turbo R32 wouldnt touch it I'm afraid to say.:vroam:

I think the black one they took round the track looked real mean!

I'd have one, looks like an awesome car. And it even tries to break your neck :biggrin:

I'm sorry fella, but simply bolting a turbo (or how ever many you fancy) to a car doesn't immediately make it fast.

Take a look at the video below:

Even with all the money an R32 owner could spend with an HPA conversion, it still only just out guns a factory RS4 over a 1/4 mile and you'd need to be a pretty good driver to get those lap times out of both cars around a circuit.

That GTR is immense and I seriously doubt even an MTM RS4 could out gun one.

in MY opinion people are overlooking a couple of major probs with the gtr.

firstly its japanese
secondly its looks sh**e, even clarkson said it
thirdly its japanese
4. its 60k for a nissan
5. if you really want to go fast round a track and in a striaght line for not much money you could buy an atom for half the price of the datsun. and the atom is faster round the TG track.

give me an m5 or the new forthcoming m3 CSL or the rs4 or the C63 AMG any day. Just my opinion, please dont ban me from the forum/burn my house down! lol

What's wrong with Japanese cars? Some Japanese manufacturers have a reputation for builing cars to a higher standard then the Germans.

Looks are a matter of opinion, Jeremy Clarkson doesn't speak for the world.

60k for a car that will beat cars of double it's price tag including marques such as Ferrari, Porsche and Lamorghini.

Only 2 seats in an Atom, and still cost's around £40-45k for the supercharged one.

Lol, it's all personal opinion mate but I think you need to look at the bigger picture.
