Nissan's technological monster, the 2009 GT-R, gives you a choice: get in, or get out of the way.

I’ll get out of the way.
No way I’d spend that much money on that car.
Saw this on Top Gear the other night, looks like a blast to drive. The folks who made the displays are the same ones who make PS3 racing video games.
Let’s see how fast it can go at 5pm on US 50 in Sacramento. If it can break 55mph THEN I’ll be impressed.
I don’t like red. You could be loafing along at 190 mph and the cops will still pull you over.
I saw that episode. The race between the GTR and Japanese bullet Train/Public Transportation.
The show is fun to watch but I can only take so much of the pretentious douchebaggery of the hosts.
I prefer cars where I’m doing all the driving. I’ll stick with my Miata, thanks.
It is a British thing.. they are actually mocking the pretentious douchebaggery of the stereotype people who drive the Bentleys and Ferraris they are testing.
A friend of mine has been an Audi fanatic forever; he test drove this... said the level of grip is unreal
Between the Z06 and now the GT-R, it seems the trend is to make Ferrari level sports cars for the upper-middle class
If only they could get the exhaust note from a Modena, I’m sold...
I think I cried at it’s awesomeness
No kidding. Then you got to chug the 40, vent the ganja and tell the biscuit to slip the tube top back on. Bummer.
Agreed, many times they refer to "fat useless men" that use the "launch control on the Ferrari or the "wankers" that drive BMW's 3 series. These are universal targets of well deserved derision.
The big guy (his name escapes me but he looks like 200lbs of manure stuffed into a 100lb bag) declared the GTR as disappointing because it was too robotic and soul-less or some other such crap. He sounds like an art critic describing some modern art abortion.
Also, the Florida to New Orleans challenge did it's best to portray the U.S. as populated by toothless, inbred gun toting rednecks, or in the case of New Orleans litigious and thankless peasants.
On balance the show is fun to watch but what's-his-face's rants get tiresome.
just don't take any sharp corners with it
...and it needs a tuneup every other month
...oh yeah and don't pull too hard on the door handles cause I just fixed them
...and the radio doesn't work cause I can't find the short that burned it out
...and the passenger window will roll down but not back up so be careful.
Other than that, she is a sweet ride.
Any sort of beige or gray variation really helps. I had a job where commuted 40 miles each way via a Southern highway. I drove a steady 85-90 in my beige Camry for a year without ever getting stopped. Of course, the ones who did get stopped tended to pass on the right at 125 mph.
No intention to offend, but I am glad I don’t have to drive in the South any more. (Actually the East is much worse unless you carry a weapon).
Assuming the Crown-Vic POS could go that fast.
The radio is always faster. I learned that the hard way.
I had one once. I called her: "Hitler's Revenge." Biggest and stinkiest POS I've ever owned.
