I drove the Nissan GTR on the Dunsfold Circuit (27 May 16) and it was a revelation in all respects, a joy to drive with no apparent vices..

It'll also excel when it's driven round a given corner 13kph faster than the opposing car.

@Mal-2-2: maybe look at the track layout and think about why the Lexus is so fast on Magny Cours? Non-turbo, no 4wd... so it suffers when it needs to accelerate from a hairpin or other lowspeed corners, it will excell though flowing corners where the excellent balance helps and it excels when there is lots of highspeed breaking.

Damn the MkII GTR whoops the LFA. Looks like the Magny Cours time is an anomaly in an otherwise rampant display of ass-whoopery. Lexus could do better.

but the kiddies are still thinking ist the fastest car in the world
and if you drive the gt-r on a track more than 2 or 3 laps
the porsche gt3 is cheaper
i saw till this day
two gt-r blown up on the hockenheim circuit
and one the gays said that was not the first time
the year before while he traveled to the hockenheimring on the autobahn
his car broke up

@Derb: all experts that HAVE driven it strongly disagree, They all think its a technical masterpiece...
Maybe you should at least give enlightenment a try.

"nissa made much cheaper and better car"
i think the gt-r is
the most overrated car of the
21th century
