Pros Much improved ride quality, much more refined in every aspect
Cons Sticker price
Summary I was completely blown away by my 2010 GT-R both in quality, value and performance. Imagine my surprise when I first drove the 2012 model. Stylistically the car looks pretty much the same, though for the trained observer, differences could easily be spotted: the larger front grille, the continuously running LED daylights, 10 spoke rims to name a few. There are changes in the cabin, most notably a better looking center stack with carbon fiber. Electronics are much better with a higher resolution display, Bluetooth streaming audio etc. The interior trim has changed to darker accents. Seats are so much more comfortable especially with lumbar support. But the change which stands out most to me is the improvement in ride quality. Even in normal setting, the ride is not harsh at all and is rather comfortable. Steering is now more responsive. Road noise is still a bit of an issue, but overall the cabin is quieter. With the upgrade in power to now 530bhp and 448 lb-ft of torque the car is even more of a beast. With the reintroduction of launch control the GT-R now consumes most super-cars for breakfast. (0-60 @ < 3sec!!!???).
With the sticker price now north of $90k, the GT-R maybe out of reach for most of its admirers, but with performance that rivals cars costing 3-4 times as much, it is still a relative bargain.
Pros 0-60 in under 3 sec, Power, Grip, Computer, Brakes, Transmission, Feel, Adjustable suspension, Adjustable traction, Stereo, Looks (yes thats right... ), seats (Black Edition), Customizable gauges, 4 seats, Trunk that holds my golf clubs, tires, Steering,
Cons Noise, Turbo lag/Power below 3k RPM, "Starts" to get fun at 80, not a daily driver
Summary Simply the best sports car for the money anywhere. Half the price of a 911 Turbo.. Watch the latest top gear if you have any doubts. By a Ferrari if your going bald and are under endowed.. by this car if you want to use the rear view mirror.. which is where everyone else is.
Pros Performance, price
Cons drivability, interior, lacking in aesthetics
Summary This is no doubt a good car, but everytime I see one, it just seems like this is just a performance package that was put together without concern for looks and image. In this price range, I just think there are better options with an interior befitting this class of car. I also think there are better options in terms of all around performance and in looks and image. At a minimum, this probably should have been badged as an Infinity to bolster a weak product line, but it does look more like a Nissan model than an Infinity model the way it's currently designed. Again, just by the nature of the class this car is in, it is a great car and a high performer, I'd just spend my money elsewhere.
