The day in which I had a ride in the Nissan Juke R, I took more videos of
it while doing some drifting and fast accelerations on a very wet and
slipperly track. The footage includes also static details, the twin turbo V6 engine starting up and revving.

2012 Nissan GT-R
The good: The 2012 Nissan GT-R delivers truly blistering acceleration from
a twin-turbo V-6 while its all-wheel
drive and suspension systems cling to the road under the most adverse
conditions. A unique performance computer displays all the car information
you could want.
The bad: Even with the suspension in Comfort mode, the ride can be
The bottom line: The 2012 Nissan GT-R is a dedicated sports car, a
high-tech weapon for the track, and entirely suitable for winding public
roads. But it is not the most practical for day-to-day driving.
A good car on a winding road puts you in a state of near nirvana, but the
2012 Nissan GT-R opens up a new level of enlightenment. Out on a
particularly good road in the San Francisco Bay Area, one that winds
through a valley and up a mountain topped by an observatory, we found that
new level with the GT-R.
Over an unrelenting course of turn after turn, hairpins and broader esses
snaking their way up a mountain, as we worked the paddles between second
and third gear, cranking the wheel right, then left, then right again,
modulating brakes and gas, the car brought us to a new level of
consciousness. There was no past or future, just the next turn. The Buddha
would have been proud.
There are other types of roads in the world, but the GT-R was clearly meant
for the twist and shout. It did unbelievable things on this particular
testing ground. At first, it seemed impossible to find its limits while
driving with some shred of sanity. But pushed faster, it began to betray a slight
four-wheel drift, which its complex electronic road-holding systems quickly
On the really sharp turns, the whip snap across the GT-R's body began to
break the rear wheels loose, but all it took was a nudge of the accelerator
and power coursed to the wheels with grip, the vehicle using its
all-wheel-drive system to get back under control. Despite racing equipment
such as its twin-turbo V-6, 20-inch Rays
wheels, custom tires, and performance computer in the dash, the GT-R is a
very forgiving car.
But even so, you have to work the paddles for the six-speed dual-clutch
transmission to avoid embarrassing power dips. The power overlap between
second and third gears isn't much, and dropping to 3,000rpm puts the GT-R
in lag territory. By contrast, the BMW M3 offers a wider power band in
On long, straight roads, the GT-R can still deliver a thrill, with the 530
horsepower and 448
pound-feet of torque from its twin-turbo
3.8-liter V-6 taking it from zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Yes, that's
right, 2.9 seconds. The 2011 model did it in 3.3 seconds, which seems
Technology makes this type of performance from a V-6 possible. Beyond sheer
GT-R's secret weapon is launch control, which has been improved for the
2012 model. This system runs the engine up to 4,000rpm before putting power
to the ground, then monitors each wheel for slip, making corrections so as
not to burn off speed.
The dual-clutch transmission significantly helps the acceleration, with
gear changes that waste no time. This transmission has two modes, automatic
and manual, the latter serving as a row-your-own sport mode. In automatic,
the transmission favors high gears, looking for fuel economy.
And, surprisingly, the GT-R is not subject to the gas guzzler tax, as it
earns 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway in EPA testing. Even more surprising
is its Ultra Low-Emission Vehicle rating under California Air Resources
But while you might get above 16 mpg by keeping it in automatic mode, we
came in with a tank average of only 12.7 mpg after a combination of
freeway, traffic, city, and glorious mountain road driving.
Although the GT-R is an incredible performer on track and twisty road, it
has always been a little too noisy and rough for commuting or trips to the
grocery store. Nissan said it would refine the 2012 model, and it has, to
some extent. Where the 2011 GT-R's transmission sounded like farm machinery
working over your right shoulder, the 2012 model dampens it so the noise
seems like it's coming from a distant valley.
The GT-R's engine never had the musicality of a Ferrari's, or the bark of a
Mercedes-Benz AMG's. And in the 2012 model, it still doesn't. Instead, it
sounds like a lathe whittling out table legs. The most enjoyable sound from
the engine is the turbos sucking in air.
