GT-R delivers fun youíll suffer for
by Colum Wood
Itís the morning after. LiterallyÖ and figuratively.
Yesterday I went on a bender with the Nissan
GT-R, shooting video for eight straight hours including plenty of acceleration runs. And now Iím suffering.
My neck feels like someone replaced my pillow with a cinderblock. With 463 lb-ft of torque, AWD and launch control, this is one street car you need a HANS device to drive.
But it wasnít all debauchery. In fact, my time with the 2013 GT-R was highly educational. Iíve learned some new things about the Japanese supercar and about myself.
For starters, the GT-R is no longer on a pedestal in my mind and the reason is tied to something new Iíve learned about myself: Iím more of a car snob than even I thought possible.
This morning Iím waking up to the realization that while the GT-R remains an awesome feat of engineering, itís more than a little rough around the edges.
