"So much better than previous year models"5.0 starson by gaaw31
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.
Thanks for your submission!
