2009 Nissan GT-R Long-Term Road Test

2009 Nissan GT-R: World's Best Alarm Clock

September 22, 2009


Sunrise in L.A. isn't until 6:40 a.m. now, which makes it extra difficult for me to drag my butt out of bed in the full dark of 5:00 a.m. When the alarm blared angrily this morning, I was tempted to pull the covers over my head and just deal with the 30-mile slog up the 405 freeway during rush hour, instead of getting up and trying to beat traffic.

Then I remembered the Nissan GT-R parked in my driveway.

The GT-R's cabin is a fine place to spend time, but it's a heckuva lot more fun to actually drive it for 45 minutes than to just sit in it for an hour-fifteen.

Thanks GT-R, for giving me a 480-horsepower reason to get out of bed this morning.
