Edmunds: 2008 Ultimate Performance Car Test: 2009 GT-R vs. the World

May 27, 2008

Edmunds have again got their hands on an new US Spec Nissan GT-R to put to the test. This time against some of its rivals on the track and on the street as they close off some of California’s best mountain roads to even out any advantage any car may have at the track.

The cars tested against the GT-R were the Audi R8, Mitsubishi EVO X MR, Porsche 911 Carrera, Lotus Elise SC and the Subaru WRX STi. While some may be re-reading that sentence to find where they missed the Corvette or Viper it seems Chevy and Dodge would not come to the party… Why try when you’re only gonna get beat down?

Anyways stop reading now if you don’t want to know who wins without reading the whole article. The GT-R of course conquers all competitors coming first in both the track test and the street test.

While the results are one thing, don’t forget to checkout the video below. One part in particular when an R8 find out what happens when it tries to hang with the GT-R.
