‘The Nissan GT-R's Rough Around The Edges Persona Is A Throwback’

Travis really seemed to like the 2014 Nissan GT-R he drove recently. Considering its insane performance, there's not much there to dislike. But how did Travis' hero John Davis like the now-with-530-horses GT-R when he had it?


It turns out Mr. Davis and the MotorWeek crew came to a similar conclusion. They found it to have drag strip times that were nothing to sneeze at, with power launches leave you "holding on for dear life."

Also, its speed is enough to make you re-evaluate your life choices, he says, even if the engine sounds like a kitchen appliance.

Yeah, that sounds about right.
