Nissan GT-R-You Worthy?
Faster than a Porsche 911 Turbo, Audi R8 and nipping at the heels of Lamborghinis and Ferraris the Nissan R35 GT-R is a bargain Supercar. You won’t go faster for less money and it even has four seats. This epic 2009 model is on special right now for less than the deposit on a Ferrari.
The Nissan badge will never carry the weight of legendary makes like Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche but none of these Supercar giants sell anything like a Navara or Qashqai to pay the bills. But in the R35 GT-R Nissan have created a monster, an incredibly high tech monster and a frighteningly fast monster. But because it carries the name of a giant Japanese carmaker known more for its run of the mill offerings, the GT-R is a second hand bargain.
So it’s cheaper than an Audi R8 of the same age but is faster and handles better. And you could buy less than half a Porsche 911 Turbo for what this Nissan costs but the abilities and quality of each car are alarmingly similar. And don’t even think about a Ferrari. So what does the Nissan offer? Its twin turbo V6 engine was hand made by one of four sanctioned engine builders at Nissan’s Yokohama engine factory. It pumps out around 478bhp and is mated to a double clutch gearbox with 0-100kph coming in 3.5 seconds. And with the all wheel drive system and tricky differentials it’s not only fast but handles incredibly well, too.
So if you want a bona fide supercar that will eat Mustangs and BMW M3s for breakfast, lunch and dinner but don’t have a Ferrari sized budget then this 2009 GT-R could be the answer. There isn’t a production car that can do what this car can do for less money. Not by a long shot. More here.
