The Nissan GT-R has been the last word in Japanese performance cars for ages. The latest generation car, the R35, is a world-beater.
Many people need a release from the mundane reality of everyday life. Some enjoy a picnic by the lake. Others escape for a round of golf. Then there are those who take it to the extreme. They enjoy hurling themselves out of an aircraft, with a flimsy-strapped backpack attached to their shoulders. Or risk life and limb…
Like many high-performance gew-gaws, the UK and Japan often get the good stuff, while we're left with the more economical stuff. That's the issue with the Nissan GT-R Track Pack. We don't get it, but blokes in damp places, like Chris Harris, do.
In his book 3 Seconds: The Power of Thinking Twice, professor of clinical psychology Les Parrott, Ph.D. says it takes three seconds to redirect a thought — in other words, to think twice. This 2013 Nissan GT-R gets from 0-60 quicker than that. Who's got the power now, Doc?
The new 911 is faster than any plain Carrera S to come before it. Now Tiff Needel at Evo Magazine wants to know if the Porsche can finally beat its supercar-killing rival — the recently-updated 2012 Nissan GT-R.
There is talk of a renewed Argentine Grand Prix in 2013 to be held in Mar del Plata, a resort town on the South Atlantic near the birthplace of Juan Manuel Fangio. It would be a seaside race at the end of the season, in December, allowing for an awesome Southern Hemisphere combination of racing, steak and sunshine.
This Chinese Nissan GT-R stands out with its '90stastic three-tone lime green/blue/pink wrap. In West Guangzhou, born and raised...
A pair of silver Nissan GT-Rs left the line, but only one made it to the end of the track. The other lost control and nearly spun into the right wall, before spinning back the other way and nearly colliding with the left wall. Godzilla was inches away from getting smashed.
A single lap around the Nürburgring will cost you approximately $35. A single drift around the entrance in your R33 Skyline GT-R will cost you $1,100.
Nissan Middle East has just put a new Nissan GT-R on the market. Officially called the VVIP edition, it has a custom sound system, a leather cabin, and gold trim. We'll call it the GT-R Brougham d'Elegance.
Remember when the Nissan GT-R was considered a budget super car? Yeah, not anymore. The 2013 Nissan GT-R's price has ballooned to $96,820 for the base GT-R Premium model and $106,320 for the Black Edition. That's a 35% inflation in price since this model of the car first went on sale for $69,850 back in July 2008.…
Yesterday we learned about the high cost of expectations: a few seconds of launch control confusion left a thousand-horsepower Bugatti Veyron flatfooted against a pedestrian-by-comparison Nissan GT-R. But on the second run, payback was swift and sweet.
The appeal of the Bugatti Veyron is it's so fast and so well-engineered any obscenely wealthy person can hop into it and be faster than other, poorer, people. Not this guy. He appears to not understand how the vehicle's launch control works and sits there, lamely, as the guy in the GT-R blows him away.
Sometimes it's worth considering how much a model-year change really matters. An updated car can be draped in hype, but what's the substance? In many cases? Not much. In this case, it's a priceless 0.184 of a second.
Apparently you can make enough money selling WoWBots to buy a tuned, carbon-fiber-laden Nissan GT-R for $150,000. That's what one 18-year-old Zilvia.net forum denizen says he did, and now he's selling the car on the board. Naturally, everyone else thinks he's trolling.
Has the King of Pop's tragic passing ever been better memorialized than as this disturbingly detailed mural of Michael Jackson's life on a highly-modified Nissan GT-R? Prepare yourself for a moonwalk through insanity.
Isn't the 2012 Nissan GT-R already track-ready? Sure. But Nissan's new Track Pack, a 10,000-quid option for UK buyers, makes a track-day beating a bit less taxing on the GT-R's bits and a little more rewarding for whoever's driving.
One would think that a 400 hp Mitsubishi Evo IX would have little competition when pulling away from a traffic light. Certainly not the kind of competition that leaves it standing like a sloth observing a Saturn V. Yet that is exactly the kind of competition offered by a certain rear-wheel drive GT-R in this video,…
