People often forget this, but the original Nissan GT-R wasn’t just a giant-killer: it was a hell of a bargain. When the car launched in 2008 (yes, it’s been on the market almost a decade now!) with a base price of $69,850, it could shame vastly more expensive cars in a way that made a Corvette look like a Cavalier.…
The Nissan GT-R has been on the market so long that if it could talk it would probably just rant about how everything went to shit after Liberty Lunch closed down, but it’s still an unbelievably fast slayer of giants. And in addition to a raft of updates for 2017 it’s getting a new Nismo version as well. Get ready to…

If you want so see what the brutal, relentless pursuit of speed looks like, find a Nissan GT-R Nismo. It's unreal.

If you're at work, creating a spreadsheet or prepping a vital organ for transplant, please put down what you're doing. This 2015 Nismo GT-R's record Nürburgring lap is worth it.
Imagine a Nissan GT-R, but fast. That would give you this: The Nissan GT-R Nismo. 595 horsepower. 7:08 around the Nurburgring. Suck on that, everyone.
