2009 Nissan GT-R Long-Term Road Test

Nissan GT-R as Arbiter

June 11, 2009


"One who has the power to judge or ordain at will."

A curious thing happens when I drive the GT-R: People who insist on being de facto speed regulators (either by self-righteous choice or through a total lack of situational awareness), traveling 62 mph in the No. 1 lane with a half-mile of clear road in front of them, no longer irritate me quite so much. The anti-destination league doesn't have a chance when I've got 430 torques at my disposal from a mere 3,200 rpm.
