Chris Harris says the 2012 Nissan GT-R is one of the most interesting cars in the world to behave badly in. Why? Because the car's amazingly byzantine all-wheel drivetrain fights against aggressively reckless inputs. But what if you add a dour British rain? Instant four-wheel dorifto.

On this week's Chris Harris On Cars, Harris compares the counterintuitively similar 2012 Nissan GT-R and BMW M5. Is it the power, the twin-turbos, the weight, the handling? The drifting? Perhaps it's all of that.

The killer app of this, though, is Harris's commentary on how to get the GT-R's systems not to direct the proceedings, and how much of a yobbo the M5 is. Look that up in the official "Yes, Minister" fan glossary.
