Is the Nissan GTR the best sports car out in the market right now? Well it sure can beat a one million dollar car in a quarter mile, but is it the most comfortable quarter mile ride?

The first ever GTR was released in 1969 under the Nissan logo. Prince motor created the Skyline in 1959 but they then sold it to Nissan. It was called the Skyline at the time, but still everyone called it the GTR. On the Nissan website the Premium GTR starting price is $109,900, yet thats still one of the cheapest supercars you could ever get. The NISMO package starts around $174,990, yet again that’s still one of the cheapest sports car package you could ever get.

The GTR was put to many tests, but the one that compares it the most is Motor Trend. Motor Trend drive and test cars, while they also give it a review. They recently had their 7th world greatest drag race which includes many cars that are top of the line. The GTR finished 4th in the race with its 3.8 L V6 engine but comparing the price margin from 2nd place to that 4th place, it was about $120,000 difference. 2nd place was a 2017 Ferrari 488 GTB with its 3.9 L V8 engine , 3rd place was a 2017 Porsche 911 turbo s.

The Ferrari website says the brand new price is $253,000 which is $140,000 more than the GTR. The ferrari only beat the GTR by 0.4 seconds, based off the race that Motor Trend hosted. The Porsche website says that a brand new 911 costs about $189,000, which is $80,000 more than the GTR. In the race GTR barely loses by 0.2 seconds.

I personally drove a 2014 GTR it was probably the best car that I have ever been in. It drove so smoothly. I would choose a GTR over any car, any day.
