    Gtr is great outta the hole but honestly it's too heavy. Hope Nissan will get its head out of its ass next time with the new design. I know you want it to be a touring car and all. You want it to be heavy but you are not gonna beat Porsche and Lamborghini/Audi with a fat a**. They design it to weigh a lot for the reason a f1 car weighs that much under high speed. Let the wind do that for ya!

    I bought an Audi R8 GT Plus on May 8, 2017 and picked it up less than 24 hrs later after spending 4 hours with the salesman who went through EVERY part of this amazing vehicle.
    It is FAST even when you dont want or need it to be. if you drive a normal powered car now, you will most likely have to adjust your method and style of driving because you have to learn to keep your right foot on the accelerator VERY lightly ANY heavy footing and you end up blasting off like a rocket!! It is amazingly fast!!
    I took it to a local drag strip to put it through it's paces after putting 4000 miles on the odometer. Even though the factory 'breaks your car in" for you to avoid damage to crucial engine parts, I felt better knowing there was enough miles on it to know it was ready for some all out assaults on the strip. I also had the oil changed along with an inspection of brakes, tires and wheels and all fluids were full and CLEAN.
    Of course I too wanted to be aware of every aspect of my car so as not to over rev it and push it past it's redline of 8500 RPMs. Getting to the point where I felt comfortable enough to drag race it came quick but still…I wanted to truly enjoy it before kicking it in its butt…or vice versa.
    On my first run I took it easy slowly progressing as I went through each race. I ended up racing 5 cars before coming in third for the day. I did not run it to win races, I just wanted to see what it could do….and I was NOT disappointed!! Round one: 11.5 @ 122 mph. Two: 11.7 @ 125 Three: 11.1 @ 127 Four: 10.8 @ 132 and the final run Five: 10.7 @ 134. The key was to get the tires (Pirelli P Zeros aftermarket tires…I bought rims I wanted for their lightness and appearance and equipped them with these new Pirellis) nice hot and very STICKY. I did this by slowly progressing on my burnouts before each race with last one one of the most intense of the day!! I had the attendant tell me to stop the burn out as it was pulling apart the asphalt!! He admonished me and at the same time told me it was the sickest burn out he had seen in a long time! The interior smelled for a week after that day at the strip!!

    It's getting sad now. The more they target the GTR, the more they are acknowledging the GTR is the mountain to climb. Extremely well done Nissan. And with little flair, frills or snobbery, the GTR still manages to be a practical, well mannered and normal car.

    Considering the r8 is a two seater go kart which weighs nothing! The great gtr is family saloon car. Gtr much better.
