End of the year lists. The Nissan GT-R shows up a couple of times on Motor Trend lists for 2011, 22 cars that stop from 60 mph in less than 100 feet, and on this one, the 10 best handling cars of 2011.

The Nissan GT-R that took down the Corvette Z06 and Shelby GT500 in our budget supercar comparison earlier this year is the quickest all-wheel-drive car to conquer the figure eight, out-pacing the mighty 911 Turbo by 0.2 second. Just to illustrate how volatile the vehicle testing game can be, the GT-R that finished runner-up in the 2011 Best Driver’s Car story needed 23.7 seconds around the same course.
