Nissan GT-R in Wisbech Cambridgeshire
The GT-R is regarded by most car enthusiasts as a supercar killer because it can embarrass machines costing three times as much.
The 3.8L V6 petrol engine is hand built by a team of master craftsmen, pushing out 562bhp in the standard GT-R, or 592bhp in the racetrack refined NISMO. A six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and four-wheel drive combine to put every horsepower down onto the road, giving the GT-R a 0-62mph time of 2.7 seconds.
But this is more than a straight line weapon. The GT-R is engineered to destroy the racetrack, with a specially engineered suspension, lightweight alloy wheels and a limited-slip differential that pulls you around corners. Choose from Pure, Recaro, Prestige, Track Edition and NISMO models. You can’t go wrong with any.
The GT-R sits on RAYS 20” alloy wheels and has a wide, muscular body that’s reminiscent of a muscle car. It’s a powerful and imposing machine, with Recaro sports seats and Alcantara upholstery available. NISMO models have a unique styling kit.
Savage is the best way to put it. The Nissan GT-R’s 3.8L V6 turbocharged engine pushes out 562bhp and 469 lb-ft of torque in standard form (the NISMO is more powerful still). It blasts from 0-62mph in 2.7 seconds, leaving other supercars in its wake.
The GT-R has ample space for two people up front and there are two token seats in the rear for showing off to passengers. The boot is good for a supercar - it has a 315-litre load space, which is easily big enough for two weekend bags.
Living with it
Despite its brutish performance, the GT-R is no harder to live with than a 370Z. The dual-clutch automatic transmission is seamless, and you get a lot of kit, including cruise control, satellite navigation, parking sensors and Nissan Intelligent Key.
