Fast along the straights, relatively flat through the corners made for a strong track performance
The mighty Nissan GTR, the worlds late entrance to the supercar race. I was looking forwards to seeing what all the fuss is about! To be fair some of it was very well placed. Getting into the car, I felt myself stepping into a "made for playstation generation" cockpit, with more buttons, switches and on screen dials that you can shake a stick at. The driving position was relatively good for me and the seats pretty well sized given my extra wide back :). Rolling the car along to the starting position, it was clear that I had quite a few horses poised and ready to go. On the move, the GTR felt fast and responsive on the straights, gathering pace with ease. The track was not the smoothest, and with that, I could pretty much feel every bump, ditch and stone on I drove over. Definitely could have been a touch more damping without compromising the handling too much. The paddle shifts we pretty quick, never felt that I was waiting too long for an up or down shift. As for the steering, the turn circle seemed like what I would from a pretty track focused car and I never found myself having to cross my arms too much. Overall a good experience give the 5 laps I had to make an impression.
As a track car, yes I think you could certainly have some fun in this car, for what is relatively good money still to purchase. However, I think this definitely a car for the track and having a few small smiles on twisty country roads. Would I take this on a Gumball rally? Not without a few memory foam pillows to avoid me breaking my back.
