Nissan GT-R may not be the most fun sports car to drive, and it may not even be capable of pulling off a proper drift. But there is no denying that the car’s combination of massive power, precise engineering, and four-wheel-drive handling, makes it a weapon of mass destruction in the right hands.
Nissan GT-R does indeed destruct things – mainly the esteem and confidence of its rivals. A racing GT-R recently proved this point in the opening race of 2014 Blanc Pain Endurance series at Monza, where it overtook 17 cars in just one lap. Take a look:
Nissan GT-R Nismo driver Al Buncombe started the race way down the grid in 32nd out of 44 cars, but when the lights turned green he just went berserk, passing cars in bundles of two and three. Porsche, Aston, Audi, Bentley, Mercedes, Lamborghini, BMW and Jaguar, none of these big names were a match for the GT-R’s speed and the audacity of its driver.
