2009 Nissan GT-R: Driving a Fast Car Slowly

December 01, 2008

I was reminded this weekend why supercars like the GT-R aren't all that great. They're too damn fast. As in, if I dip into even half of this car's capability, there could be jail time in my future. The GT-R is especially guilty of this. Unlike a hard-edged Viper or Z06 Corvette, the Nissan is so tame that going ridiculously fast feels quite comfortable. It made driving one of my favorite mountain roads this weekend a lesson in restraint. Maybe I should have taken the 1-Series instead.
