Review

With its four-wheel drive system, dual-clutch automatic gearbox and hefty kerb weight, you might assume that the Nissan GT-R is something of a blunt instrument, but the opposite is true. With delicate steering, a characterful engine and a beautifully balanced chassis, the GT-R is still one of the most engaging supercars on the market. However, a great driving experience can’t quite make up for a dated interior, a last-generation infotainment system and poor refinement – especially when cars like the Porsche 911 and Audi R8 exist. Still, if you have your heart set-on a GT-R, we’d point you in the direction of entry-level Pure trim – it comes with plenty of kit, has friendlier road manners than the range-topping Nismo and costs a fraction of the price

The ‘Track Edition’ comes with forged wheels, a reinforced body, track-focused suspension and a carbonfibre spoiler.

The V6 engine doesn’t sound as sweet as a Jaguar V8 or a Porsche flat six, but there is plenty of drama about its power delivery. Peak horsepower is now 562bhp, and acceleration is huge: we’ve tested the car taking just 3.4sec to hit 60mph from rest.
