The new Nissan GT-R may well be the most accomplished and technologically advanced high performance car ever made. One of the world’s fastest vehicles, it is also probably the world’s easiest and most secure high-speed car to drive fast.

The multi-performance supercar Nissan GT-R raced through the Nürburgring circuit – where the condition of the fearsome high-speed corner, “Kesselchen” was wet – with a time of 7m38s. The new Nissan GT-R is also striking value, offering much better performance – in acceleration, cornering power and braking – than all equivalently priced sports coupes.

‘The new Nissan GT-R is an extraordinary car, a technological flagship for Nissan that demonstrates our passion for cars,’ says Carlos Tavares, executive vice president for corporate and product planning. ‘It is designed for optimal high-speed performance in all road conditions.

No car combines such speed, ease of driving, ability to excel in all road conditions, such exhilaration, value-for-money and distinctive style. As with its predecessors that have worn the famous GT-R badge, it is a technological wonder car, with an extraordinary breadth of ability. That’s why we say it’s for anyone, anywhere, at anytime.’
