Background
This is the stuff of exotic supercars’ nightmares: 911 Turbo pace for Carrera money. Each model year sees Nissan’s tech-packed supercoupe given incremental updates to make it faster and more agile still. For more information on the GT-R, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test
The Nissan GT-R is one of those cars that apparently defies physics. A car this big and heavy should not be capable of going so quickly, not only in a straight line but into, through and out of corners too. Power, and lots of it, comes from a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 and with all-four wheels pawing at the tarmac the latest versions reach 62mph from rest in less than three seconds. Unlike its reputation suggests, it feels nothing like a Playstation to drive, even if its interior is more plasticky than one.
