Overview Information

A legend among Japanese supercars, Nissan's GT-R finally made it to the US in 2008. Powered by a twin-turbo 3.8L V-6 coupled to a 6-speed dual-clutch transaxle, the all-wheel drive GT-R is one of the highest performance sport coupes available at any price.

In the cockpit, a complex multi-function display tracks all mechanical and electronic subsystems of the GT-R, and can record vehicle performance data for review. The GT-R was a bargain when first introduced in 2008, but is steadily increasing in price to near supercar levels.
