The Nissan GT-R is one of the fastest production cars ever made and is as quick as supercars more than twice its price. The GT-R uses a 3.8-litre twin turbo petrol engine that produces 562bhp in the standard model. The noise of the GT-R at cruising speed can be intrusive but Nissan has introduced technology to help reduce the amount of sound in the cabin. The standard GT-R comes with 20-inch 'Y-spoke' alloy wheels but the Nismo-associated models get lightweight black versions. The car is undoubtedly expensive but it does come laden with technology and standard equipment. The GT-R interior is not the most exciting or stylish but improvements, such as a larger infotainment screen, have been made. The interior is really in keeping with the rest of the car; it's purposeful and functional rather than plush or beautiful. The GT-R is capable of such high cornering speeds that you'll only ever safely approach its limits on a race track. The famous 'Eau Rouge' corner at the Spa-Francorchamps race circuit is a good place to test the Nissan GT-R. The GT-R's four-wheel drive system is capable of shifting power around to the wheels it detects have the most grip. If the standard GT-R (pictured) doesn't have enough power for you, a Nismo model has 592bhp, 30bhp more than normal. The standard Nissan GT-R is capable of 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds, which puts it in supercar territory. One compromise made for the car's cornering ability is the firm ride, which can be uncomfortable on poor road surfaces. The only criticism you can level against the GT-R in performance terms is that it's slightly too heavy. The GT-R is easy to drive quickly because of the all trick technology helping you out, which may not appeal to purists.
