Description:
Pros:
  • More than just a sedate family sedan
  • Build quality is top-notch
  • Responsive handling and steering
  • Attractive interior design
  • Superb iPod integration
Cons:
  • Missing a real manual transmission
  • A "connected" driving experience just isn't there for the driver
  • Falls short of being a true exotic sports car
Ruling: The Nissan GT-R is probably the best supercar value on the market today. While the GT-R may not have the caché of an Italian sports car, you won't need a financial portfolio of a venture capitalist to buy one.

Powered by a hand-built 485 horsepower twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6, the GT-R efficiently transfers the power thru a paddle-shifted, rear mounted six-speed dual clutch sequential gearbox and electronic all-wheel drive. An electronically controlled independent suspension dynamically adjusts itself to changing conditions or give the driver the choice to choose one of three different settings - normal, comfort for maximum suspension compliance, or "R" for ultimate handling.

All four corners feature 20-inch forged alloy wheels and 15-inch cross-drilled Brembo brakes to assist with handling and braking. 0- 60 mph is attained in a scant 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 196 mph.

Enhancements for 2011 include a double clear coat on the front and rear fascias and the addition of rear cooling ducts to improve cooling performance around the rear floor area. The suspension has been retuned and the rear bushing strengthened to enhance ride comfort while still maintaining the GT-R’s outstanding handling.
