Introduction

What Car? says...

The Nissan GT-R is the performance car that puts the 'F' in fast. The inheritor of a legacy of sporting machines badged 'Skyline GT-R', the current-generation model took the car’s reputation for giant-killing pace to new heights when it was introduced in 2008.

More recently, Nissan has added even more power to a recipe that includes a twin-turbocharged V6 engine and a uniquely complex four-wheel-drive system.

The car’s mission statement, however, remains the same today as it was almost a decade ago: to deliver colossal speed and excitement at about half of the price at which it’s available in most supercars – and in a package that can be used every day and in almost any weather.

And if the regular GT-R isn’t quite fast enough for you (perhaps you’re an ex-Apollo astronaut?) then there are the Track and Nismo versions. Both benefit from stiffer race-track focused suspension, improved body rigidity and lighter wheels, the range-topping Nismo also receiving more power, improved aerodynamics and carbon-ceramic brakes. How does 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds sound to you? 

Over the next few pages we’ll let you know how the GT-R compares against its rivals such as the Audi R8, Jaguar F-Type and Porsche 911 and which version is best suited to UK roads. And when you’ve decided which new performance car is perfect for you, make sure to take a look at our New Car Buying service. You could make substantial savings on the brochure price without having to go through the hassle of haggling.
