Review Summary:

The GT-R is the successor to the notorious Skyline GT-R and is regarded as one of the finest things to come out of Japan by petrolheads all across the globe.

Pros

Exterior styling
Outrageous performance

Cons

Plastic interior fitments

Looks

Penned by Shiro Nakamura, the Nissan GT-R is every boy racers’ dream weapon. With inspiration from the Japanese series Gundam for the front end, American engineers working on the rear, and a hint of European influence on the roof-line, there aren’t enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe what an absolute beauty the GT-R really is.

Feels

The low, super supportive racing seats embrace you like an over-protective lover would, and a simple glance across the dashboard is all it takes to realize that Nissan has stuck to the bare minimum. There’s a fair amount of hard plastics around the interior, and some may even argue that the centre console is outrageously ugly, but it’s worth remembering that the GT-R is more than a pretty face and focuses on functionality.

Engineering

On the 7 inch monitor located in the centre of the dashboard, the Multi-Function Metre displays a whole load of number-y stuff to improve driving techniques. Everything from water temperature, oil temperature, oil pressure and boost pressure, to graphs showing G-forces and acceleration and braking trends is a simple tap away.

What’s on offer?

The handbuilt 3.8 litre twin tubro V6 engine kicks out a very respectable 550 horsepower and 628 ground shaking Nm of torque. Mated to a dual clutch 6 speed transmission, and with the aid of an All-Wheel-Drive platform, the 2015 Nissan GT-R charges from a standstill to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds before continuing to its 315 km/h top speed.

Summing it…

The 2015 Nissan GT-R wears a starting price of just AED 425,000 and for that amount of money, offers performance that sends owners weeping to their respective showrooms for a refund. As far as a performance bargain is concerned, there really isn’t anything that comes close to the GT-R out there…yet. So if you’re rich enough to afford one, don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it.
