2009 Nissan GT-R: Trick Handles That Actually Work

May 20, 2009


It's been mentioned before, but I'll say it again: Of all the trick features in the GT-R, its unusual door handles still manage to stand out for their simplicity.

They sit flush, yet are still easy to use. Just push the right side with your thumb and pull the left side with your other four fingers. Seems so easy, but too many exotics get cute and screw up what should be a simple operation.

You might also notice the keyless entry button. It's also frighteningly simple, but like fancy door handles, it's an idea that's often executed poorly. In this case it works just fine and doesn't look horribly out of place either.
