Bburago 1:18 2009 Nissan GT-R

Built on a unique variation of Nissan's FM (Front Mid-engine) platform architecture and fitted with a twin-turbocharged V6, dual-clutch rear-mounted transaxle and all-wheel drive, a performance legend in Japan – and perennial favorite of video racing gamers around the world – the all-new 2009 Nissan GT-R priced near US$80,000, the most expensive vehicle ever to wear a Nissan badge justifies its relatively lofty sticker with the appearance, attitude and, most of all, the ability to handily dispatch many costlier, more exotic foes, from the BMW M6 to the Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo. Only a Corvette ZO6 comes close to matching its price-to-performance index.

Driving the GT-R

Driving Impressions Intensely focused, the 2009 Nissan GT-R responds near-instantaneously to any control input. Press its console-mounted red start-and-stop button and the engine rumbles purposefully to life. Push the accelerator pedal, and prepare for an instant energy rush as the turbos spool-up and speed climbs rapidly. Matching quick, well-weighted steering, driver-selectable suspension and variable-torque-split all-wheel drive with sticky, low-profile tires and big Brembo anti-lock brakes, the GT-R goes, stops and corners with the balanced confidence of a purpose-built race car – albeit one that tips the scales at a substantial 3,836-3,858 pounds. Skilled drivers will love the GT-R's "Race mode" settings that further quicken shifts, stiffen shocks and totally deactivate the stability and traction control. Caveats? Even in "Comfort" mode, the GT-R's ride remains decidedly firm. Tire and transaxle noise also make their presence known on a fairly regular, but quite livable, basis.

Favorite Features

Twin-turbo V6 engine

A paragon of usable power, the GT-R's hand-built 480-horsepower force-fed V6 delivers smooth, quick and predictable responses that make this ultra-quick Nissan easy to live with in town but an absolute rocket when called upon to give max-effort performance.

Driver Tunable Vehicle Dynamics

The GT-R lets you select from several different and distinct ride compliance, stability control and transmission shift program settings that can transform it from a high-profile but quite livable urban-cruiser to a hard-edged corner carver that can run with the best handling cars in the world.
