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.
