Do you want speed, handling, reliability, and Japanese build quality? The Nissan GT-R is perhaps one of the best AWD sports cars currently available.
The GT-R comes from the Skyline family which, back in the day, could be tuned to well over 1,000+ horsepower. We know the car has a great pedigree, and now Nissan has taken the idea and made it better.
$110,000 sounds like a lot for a Nissan, but consider this – the Porsche 911 Turbo S lapped the legendary Nurburgring in 7.37.90, while the GT-R did it in 7.24.22. AND it’s nearly $80,000 cheaper. That GTR is looking pretty affordable now, isn’t it?
Engine specifications are similar to the 911 as well – a hand-built 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 making 565 horsepower hides under the hood; it’s no wonder they call it Godzilla – it’s a monster! Surely, this has to be the ultimate performance AWD sports car?
The looks are all ‘mean & moody’, but Nissan knows that aerodynamics plays such a big part in the handling and performance that they’ve sculpted the GT-R to perform at the maximum, and it works very, very well.
