Autoblog Takes the 2013 Nissan GT-R Black Edition on a Quick Spin

2013 Nissan GT-R Black Edition
Autoblog had the chance to take a 2013 Nissan GT-R Black Edition on a quick spin, and posted their impressions. The Black Edition makes the same 545 horsepower as the Premium model, but adds specific wheels, carbon fiber wing element, seats, and headliner.

Since July, I've been fortunate enough to be in some wickedly quick cars, including an SLS AMG Coupe and Roadster, Camaro ZL1, Corvette 427 Convertible, TT RS, Panamera GTS, 911 Carrera S, E63 AMG Wagon and Shelby GT500. I think that under real-world road conditions, though, this Black Edition has got to be the quickest one of them – and not by a little.
The GT-R has been derided as an unemotional car by some enthusiasts – we've heard that driving it is "too easy" or that it's so accomplished that it's boring to go fast in this car. Rubbish. While it isn't as tactile as, say, a 911, the GT-R still demands quite a bit from its driver,
A fast car, a fast car on the track should be easy to drive. If it scares you, if you think you might be headed backwards in a screaming flaming death though the next corner, you will drive and be slower.  The GT-R has caught the condescending "easy to drive" thing since the R32 GT-R days.  Normally its by the guys that own some other brand, and have to prove some other way that their car is superior, or their driving talents are superior.
