2018 GTR

I purchased a 2018 GTR premium, love the car,BUT the seats are bad I’m 5’ 10 and 230 and I don’t even remotely fit in them you would need to be about 180 to be comfortable,the turbo lag is horrible and when it comes time to replace the brakes,Nissan quoted me $9300 plus tax for steel brakes! The car is a lot of fun but do some research before buying,the value of the car is great they keep going up in price.I’ve now tuned the car,new brakes new tires complete exhaust system and the car is now really fun to drive! Modifications are expensive but worth it

Great Super Car for the money

rides a bit harsh, but handling and acceleration are excellent, good storage, 2017 model year and on updates are nice, comfortable seats but are a bit narrow

Fastest Car I've Ever Tested

It was 10 am on a Thursday. I drove to the test track in my A6. Pretty average Thursday morning. Overcast. About 75 degrees. However, my day was about to be a lot more than average. Why? I was testing the 2018 Nissan GT-R Nismo. I pulled up at the track, and got out of my car and stepped into the GT-R. I started it up, and was greeted by a low rumble from the engine, and an array of lights from the dash. I pulled out onto the track, and opened up the taps. I watched as the car climbed from 30, to 40, to 45, to 55, and finally to 60. All in a couple of seconds. The car felt on edge, as if it could snap at any second. The chassis felt like it was made from pure telepathy. It was brilliant. A few laps later, I was completely in love. I spent the whole day zooming around. I even took it for a little in-town driving. However, the Nissan wasn't as enjoyable in town due to street lights, stop signs, and slow drivers. As the day neared its end, I had come to a conclusion. I had to get one for myself. 600hp, lots of torque, endless amounts of styling, and loads and loads of fun all for 175,490 quid. Brilliant. Simply brilliant.
