For The Nissan GT-R has got all the power and acceleration you can handle. First-class grip, lightning-quick handling, edgy styling and a super-quick twin-clutch gearbox.
Against The rear bench is better suited to golf bags than people. The running costs, fuel bills and CO2 emissions are all high. A Nissan badge will never carry the same punch as Porsche’s.

In terms of metal-for-your-money the Nissan GT-R is hard to beat, and although tearing up Tarmac is what this seriously impressive piece of machinery does best, it's also a practical, everyday-supercar.

It's easy to see the appeal of Nissan GT-R - with supercar performance for a relatively affordable sum, it's the epitome of maximum-muscle-for-your-money. The hand-built 3.8-litre twin-turbo engine serves up a staggering 542bhp - need we say more?
But the GT-R is also incredibly driveable, even in clogged up city traffic. A super-quick twin-clutch gearbox, all-wheel-drive ability with limited-slip differential and dozens of electronic and other aids make it as easy to carve through curves at ridiculous speeds as it is fun. Perhaps even too easy. Some may feel the GT-R is so competent at sticking to the road that it drives itself.
The inside is surprisingly plush, it has a practical-sized boot and the suspension is just supple enough to make this a practical everyday-supercar. Nothing in this price range comes even close to the GT-R.
