What happened to the videos that was with this article CarBuzz?
Walker Carroll Nov 04, 2012
I love it when they revise their car. It just improves ever so slightly.
Stephen Wood Dec 13, 2012
Personally, I would take an R8 over this
David Justice Nov 05, 2012
Also, the GTR isn't autonomous. There is a certain skill level needed to put a track time down. The driver does still have to think. You can't just press a button from the sidelines and just watch the car tear up the 'Ring by itself. LOL!
David Justice Nov 05, 2012
@No Pistons I agree with you 110% but like what you said you're coming from the hard core perspective, I'm coming from a very, very casual one. But as long as we both having fun, right?
Daniel Eads Nov 05, 2012
Also for the casual driver most races are going to be on the road, in a straight line. In which case it's hard to beat the gtr.
Daniel Eads Nov 05, 2012
I'm certainly not going to drive with the traction control on but I have no problem with a smart AWD system. Traction control really makes you feel like your not driving but if you turn that off in the gtr is fine.
Mario Callirgos Nov 04, 2012
Ya I am with No Pistons on this one. I want a car that is going to challenge me, and scare the crap out me as well as being really fast. Viper, Z06, GT3RS > GTR
No Pistons Nov 04, 2012
The more you improve the more you can get out of the car. It's like playing a video game, sure it's awesome once your at max level but isn't the journey TO that level that makes it more enjoyable?
No Pistons Nov 04, 2012
@david Does that not unease you that it's not really you driving, it wasn't YOU that put that lap time? Not attacking, actually just curious because I know my mindset is a little more hardcore then others lol. But wouldn't you rather have a car that
Patrick Schalk Nov 04, 2012
It really does sound like a vacuum cleaner/hair dryer.
Lou Guerrero Nov 04, 2012
Walking home from the beach I saw cobra kit car cruise by and I instantly became 10 years old again. I like the R35 and respect its a abilities but it doesn't move me like others. It sound like an industrial vacuum cleaner. I'd love to drive one tho
David Justice Nov 04, 2012
Skill is definitely irreplaceable. But like I said, being a very casual driver with neither time or money to always be on a track to hone the craft, being able to get the performance one reads about doesn't seem bad.
Patrick Schalk Nov 04, 2012
Me wants a manual. Gonna get a lot more respect with a manual.
Lou Guerrero Nov 04, 2012
Lol I doubt you'll be setting any records but it should make you confident enough to have a good time. And really that's what sports cars are about, having fun. The way it sounds, looks, drives -- it all matters and should make you happy.
No Pistons Nov 04, 2012
This is scary to hear, people are actually choosing lack of driving skill and it's OK?!
Zeus Mocha Nov 04, 2012
Yup everyone has to have a GTR in their garage but for the experience you need a vette or viper. For me one of each for sure, just can't have one without the other.
Daniel Eads Nov 04, 2012
I'm with David, any car that allows me to beat anyone on a track is fine with me.
David Justice Nov 04, 2012
I don't have the money or time to always be on a track. If I buy a car and it helps me get times and performance I see in the magazines, I think that's awesome. fyi i do like the Viper and ZR1 as well.
David Justice Nov 04, 2012
@Lou you mean I, a casual/novice driver can take a GTR to a track and put up comparable track times to an expert in a Viper or ZR1? SIGN ME UP! Computers helping me a little bit suppose to be a bad thing?!
Lou Guerrero Nov 04, 2012
The Viper amazing. The problem is that only skilled drivers can get the maximum from it. The Vette is the same way but less so. Anyone with any moderate amount of skill should be fast in a GT-R after a few laps. I hope to own a Viper one day.
John Serely Nov 04, 2012
...look at the GTR, and vise-versa
John Serely Nov 04, 2012
@henz they most certainly do compete. So what if it has two tiny back seats + 2 front seats versus only 2 front seats? They both are very powerful supercars around 100k that put down similar lap times. Most people who consider the viper will also...
Pablo Herasme Nov 04, 2012
Why a car that did so much in 4 years get so much hate.
Henz Herrero Nov 04, 2012
Viper- 2 seater high end sports coupe.. GTR- 4 seater high end sports coupe.. Doesnt compare..
Wyatt Gordon Nov 04, 2012
still ugly
No Pistons Nov 04, 2012
Lap times at multiple tracks have them trading off
Tyler Tarbox Nov 04, 2012
The GTRs rival is the ZR1. Seeing as they cost almost the exact same
No Pistons Nov 04, 2012
Hahaha I'm sorry but GTR doesnt come close to the viper. Viper ruins the zo6s day (C6) and that's the GTRs real rival. I'm sorry but the new viper is on a whole other level of performance.
David Guerrero Nov 04, 2012
Ill take the GTR, bump it to stage 2. Eat vettes for lunch and vipers for dinner!
John Serely Nov 04, 2012
This is cool and everything...but the viper just kicks its a**!!
Shannon Sims Nov 04, 2012
I doubt the viper will out do the GTR's success.
Tim Preisinger Nov 04, 2012
I'll take the Viper. Hm... Maybe we will have a Viper vs GTR debate rather then a Vette vs GTR debate....
Pablo Herasme Nov 04, 2012
I'll take both really
Aaron Crisp Nov 04, 2012
Viper FTMFW!
Patrick Schalk Nov 04, 2012
The new Viper has it all. And the C7 is released in January.
Jordan Smith Nov 04, 2012
I wouldn't. It's a nice car, but the Viper wins for me at least.
Matt Piccolo Nov 04, 2012
Ill take this over a viper any day
Haydar Hassoun Nov 04, 2012
great car
No Pistons Nov 04, 2012
Till the viper goes on sale V V
MissLaura Anne Nov 04, 2012
Best car on the market right nkw
Pablo Herasme Nov 04, 2012
Don't worry the 2015 facelift will change a few things, A powerbump to nearly (mabe) 600hp, new front and rear headlights, front and rear bumpers, and rims, but lets wait and see
Matt Piccolo Nov 04, 2012
Looks awesome! Love the wheels

David Gray Nov 05, 2012
Yeah that must be it
Daniel Alexander Soutar Nov 05, 2012
But that's interesting. Define supercar? It's tricky, but put it like this. Anything that goes sub-4 seconds from 0-60 is supercar speed. 195mph+ and that's a supercar. Agree? What would your definition of a supercar be? Include a Viper? Not me...
Aaron Crisp Nov 05, 2012
No doubt driving a GTR would be a wicked experience, that acceleration from a stand still is nuts.
Aaron Crisp Nov 05, 2012
@David You watch too much Top Gear. Drivers car is a different definition to everyone... I prefer 3 peddles and a 6 speed. As well as a master of the track. (Hence Viper & ZR1)
David Gray Nov 05, 2012
John Serely, not quite. GTR is world renowned as a brilliant drivers car. Viper is just a plaything for you american fanboys
Patrick Schalk Nov 04, 2012
David there's a reason.
Serge Pankratov Nov 04, 2012
Hahahha i refuse to even comment on Davids comment.. Whata moron
Eric Anthony Nov 04, 2012
A turbo? Two turbos
John Jenkins Nov 04, 2012
i love all of the cars being argued about in this conversation, but there's just something about a turbo...
Aaron Crisp Nov 04, 2012
David is the newest troll I see.
Colby Church Nov 04, 2012
Ohhh shit son! All-2 David-0
John Serely Nov 04, 2012
@david if the viper is just a nice body sitting on a V10, then what is the GTR? I guess that would make it an ugly body sitting on a V6
David Gray Nov 04, 2012
Why didn't you then?
Patrick Schalk Nov 04, 2012
Yeah I'd say the same thing David if I was a complete idiot about the automotive world
Kyle Janchenko Nov 04, 2012
Yeah... Baiting.... Nice try.
David Gray Nov 04, 2012
I could've got more comments on this if I baited you lot a bit more n said that the dodge viper isn't a super car, just a fancy body sitting on a V10
Kwesi Desmond Prempeh Nov 04, 2012
* not born
Kwesi Desmond Prempeh Nov 04, 2012
I'm Definitely not a "Yank"although my son is (mot born in a former confederate state)however as a neutral David what were you thinking( or sorry not thinking)!!!lol.
Edgar Jauregui Nov 04, 2012
2.7 secs! The Gt-R only get's better by the year. I love how Nissan updates it nearly every year, just making it a bit better every time :). and LOL at the yanks comment xD
John Serely Nov 04, 2012
All vs David.....All wins
Tim Preisinger Nov 04, 2012
Lol @ David getting schooled.
Aaron Crisp Nov 04, 2012
@David I have a belly full of white dog shit and now you lay this on me?!?
Timothy Hooker Nov 04, 2012
wooo that's quick. sign me up
Jordan Smith Nov 04, 2012
Lol he called us yanks.
Elias Harb Nov 04, 2012
Haha dude, its just how the automotive world works ! Geez
Zachary Maurer Nov 04, 2012
Lol in Michigan Yanks are Ohio or above, but anyway, bro ur stupid, automakers make models for 2014 after half or 2013 is done, and they also make them 2014s in 2013 because seeing a car that is labeled 2014 is more appealing than a 2013 on the lot.
Dillon Magee Nov 04, 2012
That's fast. I wanna see some reviews.
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Nov 04, 2012
Oooooooh
Patrick Schalk Nov 04, 2012
Haha David is an idiot.
William Downs Nov 04, 2012
Actually David its done all over the world, if a car is released in the second half of the year its counted as the next years model, released in the first half its counted as that years model, has nothing to do with being american it has to do with insurance company's and most of all its done this way becaimuse of how company count revenue during a fiscal year of production, learn your shit before...
Ethan Amo Nov 04, 2012
That's freaking fast
Matt Piccolo Nov 04, 2012
Damn, 2.7 sec?

Then you will probably need to pay a premium on the price to improve the luxury. As my father used to say,"Nothing in life comes free if it is it's you that's paying for it"!!!
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Nov 04, 2012
Thers nothing wrong with the current one its just not as comfortable as most 100k cars. Especially its competitor the 911
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Nov 04, 2012
If they want to sell the car to more people over the age of 45 then they need yo make the interior s little bit more luxurious.
Serge Pankratov Nov 05, 2012
Im just tired of seeing the same arguments on every GTR article.. Thats all i was sayin
Matthew Crighton Nov 05, 2012
Sorry i guess some of your comments were about cars, but seriously...
Matthew Crighton Nov 05, 2012
site is meant for. Getting back on topic, I honestly think that this car doesnt look that great. But I will admit that its preformance specs are pretty impressive. If someone handed me the keys, I would take it. But for 100K, no thanks.
Matthew Crighton Nov 05, 2012
Serge, first of all, if this is getting anoying, stop reading. And secondly, everyone has their opinions and this is a site that alows everyone to share them. so stop posting comments that have nothing to do with cars because thats not what this
Timothy Hooker Nov 04, 2012
what serge said...
David Hicks Nov 04, 2012
Serge relax brah, it's just the Internet.
Serge Pankratov Nov 04, 2012
Come on ladies! Its time that everyone accepts the fact that the Godzilla was named Godzilla for a reason. Look at the damn facts.. Between the gtr, zr1 and whatever else anyone is arguing about, all tests showed that the better and more powerful car
Colby Church Nov 04, 2012
@Timothy Race these cars going 35 mph and see what happens. The GTR will get its face shit in.
No Pistons Nov 04, 2012
More to racing then 0-60
John Serely Nov 04, 2012
@timothy ...so what? Lol
Timothy Hooker Nov 04, 2012
they don't do it in sub 3.0...
John Serely Nov 04, 2012
@timothy haha so is the viper, ZO6 and the ZR1
Rithhin Jawahar Nov 04, 2012
It's a car made by science rather than just designers... That's why I like the Italian cars more
Timothy Hooker Nov 04, 2012
a supercar killer for 100k....I don't care if it looks like a Taurus
Elias Harb Nov 04, 2012
Awkward or not... This car is a beast and is making history so u better get used to the styling :)
Janak Solanki Nov 04, 2012
I agree Noah. I always thought this design was awkward.
Noah Gavurin Nov 04, 2012
it looks like a maxima with an awful body kit, i've always hated the styling
Carlton Salmon Nov 04, 2012
Lovely.
Matt Sutton Nov 04, 2012
While working at new jersey motorsports park, id see them all the time. Took a while for them to grow on me. But im a big fan after watching them play on the track.
Brian Johnston Nov 04, 2012
I'd agree with the three pedal thing for the most part but that would also mean all the new ferraris and lamborghinis would are all puss since they are padel shifters. Don't get me wrong I'd buy the 2006 gallardo just to have the Manuel.
Henz Herrero Nov 04, 2012
Youre retarded if you think a car sucks cuz anyone can drive it.. Wow..
John Jenkins Nov 04, 2012
no reason to hate on a car for being competent. nobody's making you buy it, not that most of us can.
Pablo Herasme Nov 04, 2012
Here we go
Paul Brodrecht Nov 04, 2012
Lol they are a dime a doesen in Edmonton. They are more common than Shelby mustangs. Probably something to do with the fact that a Shelby requires talent to drive, the gt-r is basically a beginners sport car. Hell, an FR-S is harder to drive
Edgar Jauregui Nov 04, 2012
I used to see one on my way to high school in san diego :)
Antonio Falsetti Nov 04, 2012
I've seen one in the Bronx New York.
Dillon Magee Nov 04, 2012
Yeah, I see them pretty regularly.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Nov 04, 2012
I got a ride in one fown in miami. They are all over the place. Since 2008 ive seen about 50
Melvin Cerrillo Nov 04, 2012
There are 3 in my neighborhood. And 4 Nsx's and even and R33 (track only though)
MissLaura Anne Nov 04, 2012
Oh dayum!
Joel Hope Nov 04, 2012
I think bill is talking about the interior.
David Munasinghe Nov 04, 2012
@bill. They being in US since mid 2008. You can pick up a 2008 R35 for around $47000. That's a very good price for what you get.
Tim Preisinger Nov 04, 2012
Used to pass one every day going to work
Patrick Schalk Nov 04, 2012
In Oklahoma City at Cars and Coffee
Chris Gaines Nov 04, 2012
I'm with miko
Miko Reginella Nov 04, 2012
They should revise the interior
Kyle Rawn Nov 04, 2012
Two of them caravan'ed down with us to Import Alliance this summer. They were awesome to say the least
Matt Piccolo Nov 04, 2012
@ Patrick, where?... I wish I was there lol
Patrick Schalk Nov 04, 2012
I was around 6 of them just yesterday
Michael Davidson Nov 04, 2012
Yeah, I've seen two around Raleigh NC where I'm at.
Walter Robinson Nov 04, 2012
Right hand drive would be fun, but I know of at least four GTR's in western ny
Jordan Smith Nov 04, 2012
What do you mean Bill? These are in the states. You mean the jdm market ones?
Michael Nascimento Nov 04, 2012
@ Bill They don't? In Canada they do, I would've expected they would sell it in the US.
Matt Piccolo Nov 04, 2012
Very nice
Bill Estep Jr Nov 04, 2012
I wish they offered these in the states
Haydar Hassoun Nov 04, 2012
can i have just the engine :p
William Downs Nov 04, 2012

Jon White Nov 04, 2012

Ethan Amo Nov 04, 2012
Best Nissan engine currently in production
Siya Fadane Nov 05, 2012

Pablo Herasme Nov 04, 2012
Craftmanship right there
Sebastian Grey Nov 04, 2012
I absolutely love that each engine is hand built by one person only in a hermetically sealed room. Ultimate precision and very personal.
