Watch A Nissan GT-R Destroy Itself

Video / Comments

By rear-ending a poor Mercedes-Benz.

We live in the age of the hypercar, and vehicles such as the mighty Nissan GT-R, which offers breathtaking performance, aren't considered massively fast anymore. A rather shocking fact when you consider that this Japanese brute is much faster than supercars of old such as the Ferrari F40 or Lamborghini Diablo. Just as perplexing is that any Tom, Dick, or Harry can walk into a showroom and buy one of these cars. They are much faster than full-blown track cars of the 80s and 90s, and although safer and easier to handle, still require a modicum of advanced driving experience to fully exploit.

This video below shows what happens when balls outweigh skill (as we've seen with this Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder). The driver in this video lost control of a Nissan GT-R in a tunnel located in Singapore, and the result is a scary lesson in why modern supercars should be treated with more respect.

According to Stomp, the GT-R was involved in an accident with a Mercedes-Benz CLS in a tunnel road along the Central Expressway (CTE) towards the Seletar Expressway (SLE) during the early morning of July 11. The police were notified of the crash at 3:32 am. In the video, we can see the Mercedes-Benz traveling at a moderate speed down the empty roadway. As the CLS continues down the roadway, we can see the approach of the Nissan at high speed. As the GT-R nears the Merc in the left-hand lane, it swerves into the center lane.

As this happens, it is clear to see that the GT-R loses traction. The nose of the Nissan quickly swerves to the left, and the rest of the car follows. We can't make out if there was any wetness on the road that could cause the car to swerve like that. The GT-R then hits the road barrier, before slamming into the back of the Mercedes-Benz.

The Merc then does a near 360 degree spin and ends up in the middle of the road. The GT-R's nose and rear-end has been completely destroyed. What is clear is that the Nissan was speeding down the tunnel, and couldn't avoid the CLS, but what is weird is the fact that this all-wheel-drive car would lose traction like that. GT-Rs are known for sticking to the road like glue.

A Police spokesperson said that both drivers were fine and declined medical attention. Police investigations are ongoing.
