    Holy. Fucking. Shit.

    Let me just get what i didn't like out of the way: It's loud. lots of road noise. You can feel every bump even with the suspension in "comfort" mode. the transmission hops around looking for the right gear a lot. i'm used to a 6MT so i don't know if all auto's on cars like this behave that way but it was annoying sometimes in traffic.

    I mashed it from a 10mph roll up to about 100 and i just about shit my pants. :bigthumb:

    I did some spirited driving on a couple of twisty roads and was just amazed at the traction and stability at speeds i did not think were possible. I got several thumbs up from other guys driving around. there is nothing about this car that is subtle. i really fell in love with it. i just need about 50k more money before i can afford it :wtc:

    Try a Viper SRT-10 ACR, it's beyond amazing.

    It's not an automatic, it's an F1 paddle-shift transmission with an automatic shift mode if you want it.

    GTRs do generate high interior noise due the stiff suspension and the run-flats.

    They are loads of fun, but I agree loud. And if you open up the exhaust a bit for power they just get louder lol. I actually enjoyed it though, having the window down and stomping on the gas next to a wall, it was like the gates of hell opened up behind you. A friend of a friend got one and went out of the country, so we took good care of it while he was gone. :bigthumb:

    QFT.

    I was lapping with a few over the last 18 months. In a straight the GTR sounds like..... ever hear an F16 hit the afterburners and then haul ass? Same exact sound. Its a loud, bass filled WOOSH. Nothing like it from a car. Turbo Buicks have a blown power steering pump whine, Supras a high pitch whine... but this GTR has a whoosh that is unmistakable.

    Saying that I was in one and you could file your nails at the same time as setting lap time records at any track.

    Its very disconnected of a feeling... and errie....
