KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 2/19/2014


If there's such a thing as a supercar for the budget-conscious, the 2015 Nissan GT-R is it. While it's no longer quite the deal it once was, the $103,000 and up GT-R has the performance chops to pace or even pounce exotic cars such as Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Maseratis that can cost twice as much. Though it wears a mainstream badge, the GT-R is endowed with racecar technology and a phenomenal engine. A performance-tuned all-wheel-drive system enables the GT-R to have gargantuan grip, while its 545-horsepower V6 has the power to pin you and up to three passengers to your seats. For enthusiasts who somehow need even more, a 600-horsepower, track-oriented NISMO edition joins the GT-R lineup for 2015.

You'll Like This Car If...

Zero to 60 mph in under three seconds, 545 horses powering all four wheels, seating for four, and a top speed of 196 mph. If these stats get your heart racing, the 2015 Nissan GT-R has a good chance of keeping that organ pounding.

You May Not Like This Car If...

While the Nissan GT-R certainly has awesome performance, it doesn't wear an aspirational badge and isn't laden with luxuries. If you want your $100,000 to go more toward high-end brand appeal and overall refinement, set your eyes on a Porsche, Audi, BMW, Jaguar or Maserati.

What's New for 2015

In a bid to make the GT-R's cabin feel quieter, 2015 models receive Bose Active Noise Cancellation. Also new are multi-LED headlights and new circular taillight treatment. The new, range-topping NISMO edition packs 600 horsepower, a stiffer rear anti-roll bar and race-tuned suspension.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Pressing a button brings the 2015 Nissan GT-R's twin-turbocharged V6 engine to life. And pressing the throttle brings the driver to life. Floor it, and this coupe throws you back in your seat – that's what happens when you have the ability to blast to 60 mph in under three seconds. This blunt force would be terrifying if not for the GT-R's array of mechanical and electronic chassis systems intended to keep both car and driver safe at high speeds. And Nissan's supercar remains much more than a straight-line performer. Its cornering grip borders on surreal. The car's adjustable suspension, well-weighted steering and stop-me-now Brembo brakes all work to make the GT-R thrilling when pushed, while its 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission can fire off shifts far more rapidly than a traditional manual gearbox. Do know that, unlike a Porsche 911 or Audi R8, the GT-R's raw performance comes at a compromise to overall driving comfort.

Favorite Features

TWIN-TURBO V6 ENGINE
Nissan's hand-built 3.8-liter V6 is a wonder of technology that packs power most V8s would envy: 545 horsepower in regular GT-R models, and an astounding 600 in the NISMO edition. So much pride goes into their assembly that an aluminum plate adorns each engine honoring the name of its craftsman.

DRIVER-TUNABLE VEHICLE DYNAMICS
The 2015 Nissan GT-R lets you select from several ride-compliance, stability-control and transmission-shift program settings, which can transform the car from a high-profile but quite livable urban cruiser into a hard-edged corner-carver that can run with the best-handling cars in the world.
