Nissan Shows off New GT-R to Press at Nurburgring

October 12, 2010 Comments off

Journos from around the world have been given the first hands on with the latest incarnation of the Nissan GT-R over the past couple of weeks. What better place to do it than the Nurburgring where lucky press members were able to take the DBA-R35 on the Nordschlieffe to feel for themselves just how much of an improvement the 2012 model will be.

First of the articles have popped up on sites like Edmunds and Autocar each with some tantalising new photos of the car including finally some good interior shots.

To add to this, Nissan has been gracefully letting a few select European GT-R owners out on hot laps around the ‘ring with Nissan test drivers. What a ride, check out one of the YouTube videos below with Italian GT-R Club member Discoragno get’s a ride along with “Lord of the Ring” Toshio Suzuki himself.

AutoCar UK: 911 Turbo vs R8 V10 vs GT-R Circuit Supercar Test

December 9, 2009 Comments off pit the latest PDK Porsche 911 turbo up against the new Audi R8 V10 6 speed manual and the Nissan GT-R. They refer to the GT-R as the benchmark and also make quite a mention of the price difference.

Good video, not just because the GT-R beats out the latest batch of competitors but also it’s very interesting to see them back to back on the same day with the same driver.
