We Drive The Performance Bargain Of The Century

Back in 2008 there was a very special car that upset the elite automotive mainstays. While Porsche 911’s, Lamborghinis, Audi R8’s, Chevrolet Corvette’s and BMW M3’s reigned the automotive performance world, Nissan finally came out with their Nissan GTR and sold it at a paltry starting sticker price of a little over $70,000.

Now in its 2017 version the GTR has matured, added a bit more power, gained a ton of leather, and got a lot more expensive. But is it still the performance bargain that the 2009 model delivered? We recently got a chance to drive the GTR Premium model on the streets of Monticello, New York and we captured our first impressions on video:

Dialing in at $109,990 for the 2017 version, the GTR gives you 565 horsepower out of the VR38DETT engine and can do 0-60 in under three seconds. If you want to read up on whether Nissan still has what it takes to strike fear into the hearts of more expensive cars, check out our review right here. If you want to go even crazier than the GTR, Nissan has built one in NISMO flavor. Before you check what that has to offer you might want to prepare yourself for some sticker shock.
