    Nissan GTR

    Went to play tennis late this afternoon, and got to park right next to one. Black, with black powdercoated rims, blacked out lights (including headlights), and orange-ish brembo brakes. took some pictures, but on the phone, so i'll post them in a little bit.

    guy was really cool. said he'd just picked it up last week.

    personally, this is the first time i've ever seen one on the streets. i'd seen them at shows, but never actually driving.

    the car looked awesome in the day, and even better when he left at night.

    got to talk to him a little bit. i asked him if the car was "everything they say it is". he said "oh yeah. and more".
    only had the car for a week, but he's already been to the track 3 times =P

    The tolerances are tight and the list of mods SHORTER then the time it takes u to ask what options are there.

    I don't post much about this car anymore, since I got "shunned" last time

    I love this car... got to see one on the road and had my camera handy.

    Great car... Attracts the worst fanboys evar... It is great bang for buck, just like the ZR1. But I couldnt live with a car that sounded so uninspiring...Ive heard vacuums sounds nicer. A sports car has to sound great, imo.

    Huh? what "list of mods"? Are you talking about the aftermarket? If your insinuating that the aftermarket for the GT-R is small then lol for actually believing that and as for options, who the hell cares? It's a sports car!

    So in other words you hate Japanese cars. But just for arguments sake

    Chevrolet Corvette Z06

    0-60 mph: 3.7
    1/4: 11.7

    Nissan GT-R

    0-60 mph: 3.6
    1/4: 11.6
    Source: http://blogs.edmunds.com/roadtests/2...s-quicker.html

    Japanese methodology > huge displacement engine

    The GT-R will do 3.6 once in it's lifetime.

    The Z06 will do 3.7 all day.

    With the new update for the GT-R it's actually made it safer as well as a little bit quicker
