Nissan’s R35 GT-R is one of the most impressive cars on the market, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a true supercar, with jaw-dropping performance and handling to match.
But what’s it like to live with on a day-to-day basis? We spent a week with a GT-R to find out.
First impressions are good. The GT-R looks every bit the part, with its aggressive styling and huge 20-inch alloy wheels. It’s a real head-turner, and it’s sure to turn a few heads when you pull up at the valet.
The interior is equally as impressive, with plenty of high-quality materials and a level of fit and finish that’s befitting of a car costing over $100,000. The GT-R comes packed with all the latest technology too, including a huge infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster.
On the road, the GT-R is simply incredible. The twin-turbocharged V6 engine produces an eye-watering 565 horsepower, and it’s all sent to the ground via all-wheel drive. The result is breathtaking performance, with 0-60 mph coming up in just 3.5 seconds.
But it’s not just straight-line speed that the GT-R excels at. The handling is sublime, thanks to the car’s advanced suspension and all-wheel drive system. The GT-R simply clings to the road, no matter how hard you push it.
The only downside to the GT-R is its fuel economy. The car is a thirsty beast, and you can expect to see around 20 mpg in mixed driving. But if you can live with that, the GT-R is an absolutely incredible car.
