So I guess we should all buy the car with the most appreciation regardless of its purchase price? Yet, somehow Honda Civics still sell pretty well.

Ferraris get more attention and girls than Nissans.

Ask a Ferrari owner after 20years owenrship how much he still can ask for his used 458 and than ask yourself how much you get for a 20yo GT-R... he gets most likely the same or more he had payed new...you get nothing.. who is realy the smart guy of you two?

Yeah but... The GTR is a £55-60k car and is a match on the Ferrari supercar. The GTR is \'stock\' and can hold it\'s own against the Ferrari! The GTR can be tuned up to about 900 bhp and the would own it! You can\'t really tune \'supercars\' to the extent of a tuner car!Overall i\'d pick the GTR for value for money. The true test of a car is the \'legendary Nurburgring\'.

Yeah, Ferrari is faster, but is it worth x2 the money?

That, the Top Gear track that is a standing start and the Hockenheim short which is dissapointing for this car, I think that a low 1:09, high 1:08 is possible.

It is obvious that ferrari is better on track. It loses only in SportAuto wet handling test and only for a second, due to the lack of 4wd. The comparison gives the better > Track Performance

in GT-R because of one track and nissan’s factory claim about that 7:26.70!
