What Features in the 2021 Nissan GT-R Are Most Important?

  • 20-inch wheels 
  • Massive brake rotors and Brembo calipers

Should I Buy the 2021 Nissan GT-R?

Buying a GT-R puts you in an exclusive ownership club, as only a few hundred are sold every year — making rivals like the 911 and Corvette look like high-volume models by comparison. But while the GT-R has the chops to run with its competitors, it’s basically the same car that debuted in the U.S. for 2009, making it an old-timer compared with its closest rivals.

Best performance car vs value for money

Super compact car, acceleration is breath taking, the performance from 2021 GTR is the best you can get. Nismo is just really for track, if you want a daily drive just take a G-TR Performance model.
