Great, but a little passionless
By Shawn on


2009 Nissan GT-R Premium 2dr Coupe AWD (3.8L 6cyl Turbo 6AM)


The GT-R is without doubt an amazing feat of engineering. That said, I'm not sure I love it. I've had an S2000 for four years, and like a previous reviewer I really think it is more fun to drive. Whereas the S2000 is a fun little partner in petty 'crime', the GT-R is more akin to a nuclear weapon. I know it's unbelievably powerful and fast, but I also get very little chance to use it on the street in a way that seems 'fun.' But that's a knock against any supercar. So, while I greatly respect the GT-R, I don't really lust after it, in part because it does not look good.

Best Features

Engine. Tranny in paddle/manual shift mode. Brakes. Awesome multi-parameter electronic instrumentation

Worst Features

Automatic shifting mode should be smoother. Car is too heavy, and feels that way.
