We are now living in a golden age of automobiles, ladies and gentlemen. In case you didn't know, cars are now faster, safer, more efficient and more packed with features than they have ever been before.
But even though we're privileged to live in an era of such amazing cars, it's understandable if some of them just don't float your boat. To each his own and all that.
For me, I just can't seem to get behind the Nissan GT-R. Oh, I have a tremendous amount of respect for the latest iteration of Godzilla and what it can do — the 2014 model puts out 546 horsepower and can do the zero to 60 dash in a mind-blowing 2.7 seconds. That's nothing short of incredible.
But something about the car doesn't appeal to me. Maybe it's the looks, which are so form-over-function that the end result looks like a 350Z or an Eclipse with an expensive bodykit. Maybe it's the fact that it's a staggeringly huge car that weighs in at damn near 4,000 lbs. Maybe it's the fact that it's over-computerized to the point where little driving skill is needed to go fast in it. Or maybe it's the fact that it lacks a proper manual gearbox.
I'm not saying I don't like the GT-R — I'm just saying that for its $96,000 price tag, I'd get something with a little more teeth.
How about you guys? What incredible car are you unable to get behind?
