2009 Nissan GT-R Review

You're going to giggle. Or yell "Woo hoo!" or "Holy (preferred expletive)!" There's just no other way to react when you lay into the 2009 Nissan GT-R for the first time. Cars don't behave like this; airplanes do. And it's not just the intense acceleration that's more in line with aeronautics than automobiles. The engine and muted exhaust are so effortlessly smooth you'd swear the lustworthy noises infiltrating the cabin were emanating from a jet rather than six turbocharged cylinders. We always heard the mythical Skyline GT-R from Japan was incredible, but now we know for sure.

And yet, you probably knew that already if you've ever heard the name Skyline or read anything about this automotive legend-in-the-making aptly nicknamed Godzilla. This is a car with a 473-horsepower twin-turbo V6 (485 hp for 2010), all-wheel drive and enough performance to give Porsche 911 drivers nightmares. But the real question is, what's it like to live with Godzilla? Can you drive a GT-R every day, or does its max-attack attitude turn it into nothing more than a weekend plaything?

Rather conveniently, these questions can be answered. We bought a 2009 Nissan GT-R for our long-term vehicle program to see what it's really like to live with on a long-term basis. Turns out, you can live with this Japanese monster. Just be prepared to get knocked around a bit.

Should I lease or buy a 2009 Nissan GT-R?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
