2013 Nissan GT-R Review - Video



Quote:
GT-R delivers fun youíll suffer for
by Colum Wood

Itís the morning after. LiterallyÖ and figuratively.

Yesterday I went on a bender with the Nissan GT-R, shooting video for eight straight hours including plenty of acceleration runs. And now Iím suffering.

My neck feels like someone replaced my pillow with a cinderblock. With 463 lb-ft of torque, AWD and launch control, this is one street car you need a HANS device to drive.

But it wasnít all debauchery. In fact, my time with the 2013 GT-R was highly educational. Iíve learned some new things about the Japanese supercar and about myself.

For starters, the GT-R is no longer on a pedestal in my mind and the reason is tied to something new Iíve learned about myself: Iím more of a car snob than even I thought possible.

This morning Iím waking up to the realization that while the GT-R remains an awesome feat of engineering, itís more than a little rough around the edges.

good point about the weight (being excessive) and the stiffness of the chassis directly related to the dynamic weight of the car.

Agreed. The GT-R is way too heavy. I had to disagree with the part of the article where the author maintains that the car attracted more attentention than the other super cars he has brought home. I work with a guy who drives a GT-R and he says outside of teenagers and car geeks, nobody gives the car a second look. And outside of the above audiance, nobody finds the car to be particularly attractive.
