Nice!

I drove a 2010 earlier this year, holy shit that car was fast!

I may have the opportunity to drive an LFA in the next couple of weeks.

Any parent that gives their teenage kid the ok to buy a "small" 600 or 750 sportbike as their first bike needs to take a ride in that car so they can get a comprehension.

It always impresses me when a production car has the same acceleration numbers as a sportbike. Far too often "fast" sports cars equate to "slow" bikes if you look at the acceleration numbers.

Hell.Yeah.


Why spend the money when you can rape ferraris for a fraction of the price?
Link Posted: 12/19/2011 8:47:16 PM EDT
I'd wait for the 2014 redesigned model.

Will you be able to use all the car's features without voiding the warranty?

I would be more that happy to spend the money on a Ferrari and i rather have a Ferrari over that GTR or any other car ever made. But that is just me and it has nothing to do with speed, handling or looks.

The GTR is a nice car tho.

Computer with wheels. Impressive from a spec sheet stand point but no passion. I'll pass.

different strokes for different folks I guess.

Seems to me that passion is what drove some brilliant engineers to make a car that performs like that.

I would certainly be passionate in that car

very quick off the line with that AWD...and it will get to the quarter first as well..but after that it'll lose out to quite a few of the lighter RWD cars

That will really make it suck for the morning commute and the all important 0-150 mph benchmark.

I agree with the no passion thing, but a computer on wheels is the logical progression of cars. It obviously makes for a much faster vehicle.

Not bad, only slighty slower than a Ducati 1198 or KX-10R.

Except they cost less than $20,000. For the price they're asking for the GT-R you could get a Panagale AND a Desmosedecci.

Still a bargain...It is a car after all..bikes are expected to run 10 sec quarters...having a 3700lb car do it in showroom trim? That thing is a marvel.

I think he is referring to Porsche claiming that there was no way they could replicate the numbers Nissan was getting at Nurbugring out of a stock vehicle.

Yeah, I have to see video of a decent driver on the "Ring" driving before I believe the #'s. There have been alot of weird "Ring" times floating around the net. Some even faster than what I can run in Gran Turismo 5. Pretty sure I'm going much faster in a fake video game than cars in real life.

I'd still rather have a Ferrari 458 Italia.

Short version, Nissan ran a GT-R to some insane time on the 'Ring and proudly proclaimed that it was faster than a 911 Turbo and GT2, cars that weigh less and have more power than the GT-R.

Do they still void your warranty if you use the launch control and grenade the tranny? Still a really cool car!

The section of arfcom is anti-Nissan, would be a small group buy

They don't like Ridgeline's as well.

I like the Ridgeline, I test drove one in 06 when I bought my civic. If I didn't commute 65 miles a day I would have bought one.

Bimmer had one they got on trade for a while.... I never drove it but it looked rather out of place. I'm still waiting on my bugatti veyron sport. AWD and 1100 hp. Plus it has a HP gauge. I mean who cares about performance per dollar? it has a HP gauge!!!! Imagine doing a valve job on that sucker. I'd get real tired after the first 8 cylinders and have another 8 to go!

Just watched one of the season 11 Top Gear episodes about the GTR last night. Incredibly impressive car.

I'd take a 5yr old DB9 over it in a heartbeat though.

Try looking at max lateral acceleration or braking distances.

According to that logic if you are driving anything but a viper, any other car is just a smart car for dumb drivers.
