track performance sporty coupe

Pros - Stunning exterior looks along with amazing handling and braking, and rocket-like acceleration.

Cons - Transmission is clumsy at low speeds and it has a nose that is a little hefty, and it tends to understeer.

sports coupe with stunning exterior looks and rocket-like acceleration. My Nissan GT-R provides supercar track performance in a relatively elegant vehicle, with sub-3.0-second 0-60 mph and a modern all-wheel-drive system. It's really fast and cuts through bends with incredible accuracy. And it sounds very exciting . The combination of superior all-wheel drive and intelligent technology incorporated into the stability and traction control systems allows me to go fast much more easily. However, it is a touch nose-heavy and tends to understeer more than I expected from such a performance-oriented car, and the transmission bothers me a lot at low speeds, especially in congested traffic. Apart from these m...

Fastest car I've ever driven!

Pros - Blistering performance, Thrill-filled rides, Aggressive exhaust note, Eye-catchy exteriors

Cons - Low-floor seats, Limited gas mileage, Excess engine noise at high speeds

Scintillating power display Undoubtedly, this is the most powerful sports car I've ever owned. I used to drive it usually on tracks for enjoying its thrill-filled rides and extraordinary handling. I still remember my first driving experience on a track named 'Selinsgrove Speedway' and got stunned with its blistering quick acceleration. I love its unique exterior styling that turns everyone's head while pressing the gas pedal and its exhaust note is simply aggressive. It was a decent purchasing experience in the Exton Nissan and the sales consultants followed a transparent process to complete it quickly. The finance team managed to increase the time duration for the monthly payment installments a...

luxurious sports car with a reasonable price tag

Pros - Stunning exterior looks, outstanding acceleration, incredible cornering ability and rapid fire dual clutch shifts.

Cons - Intrusive road noise.

high performance sports car with distinctive looks. I absolutely love the on road attention I get while driving my white Nissan GTR.It is in a class of its own, with four seats, sub-three-second 0-60 mph performance, an innovative all-wheel-drive system, and a sensible sticker price. I spent a little more than 100 grand for this sports coupe, which I believe is a great bargain.This exotic vehicle is surprisingly simple to drive fast. Throw the GT-R into any corner and it will stick through the curve and fly out the other side. But it never fails to surprise. It's terrifying in the same way that commercial flight is. Best deals in town, shout out to my salesperson and the rest of the crew. They p...

The price starts at around $109,990 for the base model and goes all the way up to $174,990 for the powerful $174,990. The base variant comes with leather upholstery with synthetic-suede inserts, dual-zone automatic climate control, a heated eight-way power driver seat. 

The Nismo model, which has an enhanced version of the Premium and Track Edition engines, has a maximum power output of 600 horsepower.

The Audi R8 and the Porsche 911 Turbo offer similar power output, with the Porsche 911 offering the most amount of torque. 

2017 Nissan GT-R Acceleration

When compared to the competition, the Nissan is neck and neck with the Porsche 911 Turbo but falls behind the 2017 Acura NSX. The Audi R8 is the slowest to accelerate in the range with a 0-60 MPH time of 3.2 seconds. 

2017 Nissan GT-R Handling and Steering

The steering wheel and column in the coupe have been redesigned, and the addition of the paddle shifter adds to the car's track-ready feel. Although some experienced drivers may miss the rear wheels kicking out from beneath when you hurl the vehicle into corners at high speeds, the all-wheel-drive capabilities and traction control allow the car to be more grounded while ripping through corners at high speeds.

The ride is balanced with track-ready handling thanks to a strong body structure, unique springs, and custom-developed Bilstein DampTronic dampers. Nissan also offers a variety of drive modes, including an R, or Race, mode that adjusts the driving style to the circumstances.

2017 Nissan GT-R Braking

The Nissan GT-R Coupe has excellent Brembo brakes that help to balance off its whip-like quickness off the line. It comes to a complete stop in only 95 feet owing to its massive 15.4-inch front and 15.0-inch rear brakes.

Curb Weight (lbs.) 393 3803 3649 3516
60-0 MPH (ft.) 95 103 103 100

The GT-R more than holds its own in the braking aspect, with a hefty curb weight of 3933 lbs, a figure that overshadows its competitors like the Acura NSX and the Audi R8 with a curb weight of 3649 lbs.

2017 Nissan GT-R Fuel Economy


The Nissan is slightly underwhelming in terms of fuel efficiency, with a mere 16 mpg within the city and an on-par figure of 22 mpg on the highway, and a combined 18 mpg. The 2017 GT-R comes with a large 19.5-gallon fuel tank, which gives it a range of around 470 miles.

2017 Nissan GT-R Interior


"Much improved interior materials team with active noise cancellation and a usable rear seat to make the GT-R an almost civil long-distance cruiser." - The Car Connection

2017 Nissan GT-R Seating and Comfort

The 2017 Nissan GT-R sees some minor upgrades to the interior. The dash has been revamped with Nappa leather covering and fewer physical buttons. The cabin feels more lavish and premium than previous trims even though there are only a few changes. The addition of paddle shifters to the back of the steering wheel makes it more in tune with its sports car characteristics. There are also plenty of features that have been added to the roster of the 2017 Nissan GT-R. 

The 2017 Nissan GT-R interior with Nappa Leather

In most sports vehicles, four full-fledged seats are rare, and the GT-R excels in this area. Although the back seats aren't the best in the class, the GT-R's ability to accommodate four people makes it a better grand tourer than most of its rivals, with the exception of the Porsche 911 Turbo. The car comes standard with leather-trimmed front seats that are rather comfy, however it should be noted that the back seats are set in place and non-adjustable. Although the front seats are motorised, the heated seat option is only available on the driver's side.

2017 Nissan GT-R Cargo Volume

The GT-R features the largest trunk in its segment. The Audi R8 comes close, but the Nissan outshines the competition, boasting a more-than-just-generous 8.8 cubic feet of cargo space making packing for your weekend getaways just a little bit easier.

Deep as the trunk is, the high lift coupled with the confined opening on the cargo door does make loading stuff in slightly cumbersome.

2017 Nissan GT-R Exterior


"The 2017 Nissan GT-R gets a minor styling update, but it's still distinctively Japanese and almost restrained for the exotic car it is." - The Car Connection

The 2017 GT-R sees the addition of the Nissan's "V-Motion" grille. The emphasis on aerodynamic is evident with the revised front lip spoiler and bumper design which adds more downforce. To enhance airflow, the sills on the sides are pushed outward. The rear end receives new bodywork, including functional vents next to the quad exhaust tips and a raised beltline to make the car appear broader.

2017 Nisssan GT-R features an updated front grille 

Nissan comes standard with 20 inch forged aluminum alloy wheels that feature a sleek and fresh design. The front wheels of the GT-R Coupe come with 9.5 X 20 inch wheels, while the rear wheels feature larger 10.5 X 20 inch wheels that plant the car firmly to the road. The GT-R also sports Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600 DSST CTT tires as standard.

2017 Nissan GT-R Competition


2017 Acura NSX vs 2017 Nissan GT-R Coupe

One of its closest competitors, the Acura NSX trumps the GT-R Coupe on many fronts. The Acura NSX offers more power than the GT-R as well as a compelling driving experience. The NSX is also faster and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 2.7 seconds compared to 2.9 seconds for the GTR But when it comes to the price, the Acura NSX is almost $40,000 more than the Nissan GTR. 

2017 Acura NSX

2017 Audi R8 vs 2017 Nissan GT-R Coupe

The R8 adds a sophisticated touch of style and elegance to the GT-R, which is more focused on performance. The 2017 Audi R8 exudes German elegance and precision handling, albeit its slower performance is due to its heavier weight. In comparison to the GT-dials, R's the Virtual Cockpit is far more appealing to the eye. The Audi does, however, charge a significant premium above the Nissan.

2017 Audi R8

2017 Porsche 911 Turbo vs 2017 Nissan GT-R Coupe

Both the 911 Turbo and the GT-R are quite fast. The 911, on the other hand, is much lighter than the GT-R, allowing it to go swiftly on the road or on the track. The 911 also comes standard with extra safety measures, such as a multi-collision prevention system that helps avoid subsequent accidents in the event of a rear-end collision. The Nissan GT-R, in comparison, is much cheaper than the Porsche.

2017 Nissan GT-R Final Verdict

The Nissan GT has been the king of the hill for a while now, ever since it zoomed its way on the automotive scene way back in 2009 and into arduous sports car fans' hearts and continues to do so in it's latest avatar. With it's upgraded interiors, more powerful engine and the option to switch to beast mode with it's highest Nismo trim, the GT-R Coupe continues to be the track-conquering machine that it was originally intended to be.

It may have a bit of competition coming it's way though, in the form of the Acura NSX and the legendary 911 Turbo, which ekes the GT-R out in terms of everyday drivability and handling. There's no doubt, however, that the Nissan GT-R is here to stay. Nissan's engineers seem to have hit the sweet spot by bridging what was the great comfort-performance divide with this track-worthy version of the car.
