Fast and Reliable

I bought a new 2009 in late 2010. What an amazing car! Have have owned Porsche 911's and Corvettes. This tops them all. Great performance. Reliable. It's my daily driver to work. I also take it to the local auto-cross. I've got kids, so the back seat is perfect (small but larger than any other competitor). After 19 months of ownership, I still get a smile and rush of adrenaline when i push on the accelerator! The limits of the car are amazing. Another great thing is that you never see these GTR's. Most people don't even know what it is. I will only get rid of this car if I'm getting another GTR. No other car comes close to the reliability, performance, and price.


Supernaturally FAST.

I am no stranger to quick and fast. Replaced car was a '08 Corvette Z06, supercharged to 710hp at the wheels. Prior to that, 1000hp '04 Pontiac GTO turbocharged. For the life of me, I cannot explain how this 490hp 3900lbs car is this darn fast! AWD and a lightspeed tranny i guess. Also, what an amazing cockpit! - imagine a luxury fighter jet. For 17 years I have driven a series of GM, rear wheel drive, V8, manual tranny cars (8 in all), all performance modified. This Japanese twin turbo V6, AWD, Auto is a completely different religion. One drive and I was converted. Whatever you've read? Its not hype. Godzilla is real!


Under Powered.

The GT-R is a head turner with awesome engineering. I sold mine after a year, because so many drivers wanted to race me. It was a pain. The only downside with the vehicle is that it needs more power.


amazing body kit

GT-R, just amazing, i love the front bumper!! by the way, G2s are also nice! The best ever! i think the price is not bad cuz you'd already got the exhaust, wheels and brakes, bumper and diffuser. im soooo interested in how much money u paid for those lovely things!


Technical Masterpiece

This car is fantastic. It handles like nothing else, the four wheel drive system provides SO mcuh grip, and also comes in handy in snow. The car looks menacing and is very head turning and it holds together very well. The straight line speed is phenomenal; it'll blow away Porsches, Lamborghinis and Ferraris with ease. What's more, it costs about half as much as its Italian equivalents. And for that, you get a faster car that handles better, seats four, has a large trunk and comes with loads of clever gadgets. This car is great value for money, and if Ferrari, for example, made a car with this much versatility and equipment, you'd probably be spending in excess of $300k.


Best bang for the buck

While I've owned mostly muscle cars ranging from old school chevelle's with big blocks to the new Camaro and Challenger (both of which I installed magna superchargers) I have to say that this car is bar far the quickest. What's more, if you drop another 3-5 grand in it and upgrade the downpipe, mid pipe and go with a cobb tune then you'll lay down roughly 560hp to all four wheels! You'll then have a GTR capable of 2.8 0-60mph. Can you say Buggatti Veyron? That's alot of bang for the buck. This car is unique, rare, and fast. I've had plenty of people take pictures of the car yet seldom know what it exactly it is. The ask.."is that the new Altima?" Uh...no. The ride is bumpy, really hugs the road. Then again if you want fast AND comfort then go with the supercharged CTS-V. If you want pure unadulterated adrenaline rush, with equally matched performance then definitley place your money on the Nissan GT-R. You will not be dissapointed!


Nissan GT-R

I had looked at every sports car on the market. I currently drive an Audi A6 4.2 quattro for work, but wanted something even faster for fun. I looked at the M3, M5, Corvette Z06, ZR1, and Mercedes cars. For what I paid, I can definitely say that I am more than pleased with buying the Nissan GT-R. It is faster, handles better, has many more gadgets, and is very easy to modify for any more speed at a relatively low cost. If you are looking for a sports car in the $75k to $100k range.. You can't beat it.. Plus, very few people have them or have every seen them. This makes it even more fun to have people always asking you "what is that car, I have never seen one before".. You will not get that with a BMW, Mercedes, Audi ... and definitely not with a vette.. O


Decide for Yourself!

I have owned a 2009 Premium GT-R for two years now. Excellent car in so many ways. The real problem with the GT-R is that there was SOOOO much hype around the car that EVERYONE has an opinion on it! Most of those opinions coming from people who NEVER OWNED the car! Simply put, it is the best car for the money. Period. It is not fragile. I have spent $320 in maintenance over the past two years. It is comfortable as a daily driver. My kids fit in the back in car seats! If you're thinking about a GT-R, do it. The car has kept a great re-sale value!


best ever

as a former racing driver I can only recommend this car...no car is even close for this money,not even $100k+ cars. well done nismo!
