Random Car Wednesday: Nissan GT-R

Welcome again to RCW here on Shifting Gears. For this week we have a modern machine, the Nissan GT-R. The great thing about the GT-R is the technology. It doesn't have the biggest engine, the biggest brakes, or the best suspension, but it's programmed to use every single molecule of performance contained in its entire being. It can beat a Ferrari 458 in a quarter mile drag race, but still be comfortable and mild-mannered on the way home. On top of all those benefits, it's a relative bargain. Pricing is closer to a Porsche 911 or Chevrolet Corvette than the Gallardos and 458s that it actually rivals. Ultimately, it's a testament to technology, an effigy of engineering. Because in some cases, more isn't always more.
