|2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO|
Road and Track Magazine took 14 cars, available now, or very soon, and put them head to head in the performance car of the year challenge. Who wins? Check out the article for the full story, and beautiful pictures.
Which leaves just the trio of not-quite-supercars for our consideration. First up: the Nissan GT-R Nismo. There simply isn't a faster way to cover unfamiliar pavement, and although you'll pay twice the retail of the original R35 for this ridiculously striped variant, the juice is worth the squeeze. You can't fluster this car. The minute you can see the exit of a turn, simply floor the throttle; the Nissan will do the math and take care of the rest, leaving even the Ferrari gasping for air behind it. Later, at dinner, I'll ask the group which car covers the most real-world ground in the least amount of time, and the vote will be unanimous: Nissan.
