    nissan built another nissan packed full of electronics that does everything well, perhaps a little too well to make it a little disinteresting, killing resale values so no matter how many they produce or how exclusive they are, in the end its still just a fast nissan.

    Big surprise there :hs:

    i dont know how they are still claiming its faster than a 2010 911 turbo 3.8

    the turbo absolutely destroys the nissan in straight line acceleration, and has 300kg less curb weight

    its too bad they scrapped all the r32/33/34 production equipment

    they could make more money selling the old models as kit cars

    Amazing cars but from my understanding, their service costs approach Ferrari-levels, especially if you track them regularly. I guess you've got to pay to play to get that level of performance... Or buy a Z06.

    young guy around the corner just purchased a mint condition R32 for 10k, probably the last decent one to own.

    The fuck are you talking about?

    The car is very much what the GTRs of the past were. A technological marvel built to best contemporary supercars at a fraction of the price across tarmac.

    Did the launch one 5 years into the future to do this test or did they just happen to forget the car is only a year old?

    older gtr's wernt as constrained, nor expensive

    you cant change a wheel on the new GTR without it locking the drive, its very difficult to modify the engine too

    plus the original GTR's had manual transmissions, they were high tech performance wise, but they all shared the RB26DETT

    this is of a different breed clearly

    but apparently 52k is a bargain to a guy driving a Mustang

    It's an evolution of the model. The old GTRs didn't have sequential transmissions because the technology was in its infancy.

    As for the modification bullshit, that's irrelevant.
