The Nissan GT-R is an engineering marvel that almost anyone can get in and drive fast. What do you need to know before you buy a Nissan GT-R? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
I recently had the chance to drive my 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R back-to-back with a brand new 2015 Nissan GT-R. This was like driving a riding lawnmower back-to-back with a jet ski.
The Nissan GT-R has been a bit of a polarizing machine since it’s arrived years ago. Some love it while others feel it can be a bit soulless.
The legendary Rb26 straight-six powertrain. ATTESA all-wheel-drive. A redline past 8000 rpm and at least 300whp. And hey, room for your dog!
In our travels to New Zealand, we drove a huge variety of cars, all of which were excellent in their own ways. But the one we were most excited about was, of course, the one we can’t have here for 9 more years: The R34 Skyline GTR. Almost like a bonus, this one makes four times the power it left the factory with, an…
Yes, ladies and gentlemen: another week has passed, Friday is upon us, and that means it's time for Letters to Doug, the weekly column wherein I provide good, sound advice to loyal Jalopnik readers, and then you tell me how wrong I am.
I've got nothing against the fabled Gulf Racing livery, but on a McLaren P1 it seems kinda dull, and in this case, not particularly well-executed (Gulf blue is pale, powder blue, not this cartoonish Cerulean hue). I feel like perhaps this car was spec'd by someone who knows nothing about McLaren, and just enough about…
The Extreme Turbo Systems GT-R was put through its paces in the half mile, topping out at 220 MPH. Unfortunately, the driver lost control of the vehicle and went into a massive spin out. Fortunately, they appear to be in the middle of frikkin' nowhere, which is probably pretty good news for car and driver.
In his postmodern novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, John Fowles tells us that the heroine, Sarah Woodruff, was "the perfect victim of a caste society. Her father had forced her out of her own class but could not raise her to the next. To the men of the one she had left, she had become too select to marry; to those…
I know in certain beach communities, we're quite popular with the seagull population, which is why I'm issuing this warning: I think some seagulls get hurt or possibly killed in this video. That GT-R is hauling a significant amount of metric ass when it impacts that seagull flock, and the results aren't great.
British GT-R tuner Severn Valley Motorsport (SVM) has executed a new approach to the performance SUV— packing performance parts and the powerplant from an R35 into Nissan's 7-passenger Qashqai.
Switzer Performance is one of the most successful tuners at the insane Moscow Unlimited standing mile drag races- and this 1800 HP "Goliath" GTR is one of the most insane cars to ever run at the event ... even by Russian standards!
The owner of a grey Nissan GTR is wanted by the LAPD for his involvement in a fatal hit&run accident. That accident claimed the life of 90 y/o Joo Yoon as he crossed the intersection at Vermont and Sixth Street. Yoon was struck as he crossed the street by bicycle, the video below shows the incident in it entirety.…
You there. Are you a classy gentleman? I am. Do you want to know how I'm a classy gentleman? Because I wear suits with ties all the time, sip tea, pretend I know a lot about wine and hit on women with an unconvincingly fake British accent.
Yesterday, we covered the ongoing saga of a GT-R owner who had complaints about work done by Forged Performance. The complaint thread had gone viral across many car forums, and now Forged seems to be lashing out at some of their detractors.
It's often stated by enthusiasts that the Nissan GT-R is devoid of a soul. Is this actually the case? No, actually, it's not...
The other day we pointed out the flying Bugatti in the trailer for Neil Blomkamp's new movie, Elysium, and noted the tiny presence of what appeared to be a modified Nissan GT-R being flung into some trucks. Well, thanks to 808morgan over at Oppo, we now have a much better picture of the car. It's 140 years old but…
What do you get when you combine BJ Baldwin, his 850 horsepower Trophy Truck, a Nissan GTR, Janey Bolina, and the Vegas desert? ///RECOIL
