Overview
The GT-R, while new to the US, has its origins In the Nissan Skyline, which has been in production in Japan since the 1960's. The GT-R now gives Nissan America a supercar to tout. It is a 2+2 coupe that can hang with the best in the world in virtually all of the merits that make a supercar, super. This road going rocket is one of the most comfortable of the cars in its class with a decent amount of interior space and a wealth of available options. While its ride would be considered stiff, it's still not as bad as some of its competition.

The GT-R, with a first time rear transaxle to power its all wheel drive system is one of the quickest production cars on the road its powered 3.8 liter V-6 that can generate 485 HP and 434 ft. lbs of torque.
