2009 Nissan GT-R: What Happens When You Press Start

August 31, 2009

Since uber-fun driving road GMR was closed due to the fires and "closed driving courses" aren't readily available, I didn't really get to do anything cool with our 2009 Nissan GT-R this weekend. Unless you think driving it to Long Beach and Anaheim, getting hit on by slick dudes driving a Dodge Magnum, and 13-year-old girls squealing at it are cool.

But here's a video of the GT-R starting and revving a bit. It sounds kinda blah revving while parked because there's no load on the engine and it has a stationary rev limiter of around 5,000 rpm. It's a shame you can't hear the burble.

But if you were curious, there you go. BTW, sorry for the bad sound quality. There's this loud fan clear on the other side of the garage that I didn't think the camera would pick up.
