Don’t be fooled by its slick styling, the Nissan GT-R is a beast born to tear up the tarmac. With a firm structure, opulent aesthetic and welcome tweaks to the car’s already intimidating performance, the Nissan GT-R is without doubt one of the most electrifying launches of the year.

The Gold Flake Red Pearl paint adds a sizzling new colour to the Nissan spectrum, and the car’s carbon boot lid and spoilers make this one exceptionally accommodating piece of machinery. With a calming interior, lighter steering at lower speeds and developed sound deadening, the newest incarnation of the Nissan GT-R exudes class and comfort from the inside out.


Improved steering and adaptive dampers make the Nissan GT-R a smoother and easier ride than ever. With its supercar credentials, it’s easy to make assumptions about the GT-R – but a leather interior, 3D mapping and heated front seats are just the standard. Videogame technology reigns supreme in the Nissan GT-R, with digital gauges to allow drivers to record their performance.

With four seats and plenty of legroom, the Nissan GT-R stands up against its more expensive supercar rivals. The boot is surprisingly spacious and safety is at the forefront of the GTR’s design – with airbags, stability control and a rear view camera completing this car’s hefty armoury.

20 inch alloys with cross drilled disk brakes complement the GT-R’s already striking aesthetic – and there’s substance to back up that style, as the brakes offer remarkable firmness and ability, even at top speeds.

A fiery twin-turbo 3.8 litre V6 powers the ferocious Nissans GT-R. The car’s monstrous 542bhp and six speed twin clutch gearbox offer drivers a taste of authentic performance and power. Hitting 60mph in a staggering 3 seconds, the Nissan GT-R boasts a colossal top speed of 196mph – and handles all of that G-force like an absolute dream.

At the budget end of the supercar market, Nissan’s flagship model starts from a comparatively affordable £78,020 – with a track pack available for an extra £10k. If the Nissan GT-R is a little out of your budget, you’re in luck.
