2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO Track Package - Record Nurburging Passenger Lap?
"Krumm has posted a 7:19.46 lap with me in the car, just more than 10
seconds off this special GT-R's best time. He's convinced it was a 7:18.
That might be a lap record for a 'Ring run with a passenger. Even if it's
not, I've never had so much fun being a crumple zone." Read the full story

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.

2013 annd 2014 Nissan Juke Nismo Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB
Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF
Let's get one thing sorted. The picture above is not, I repeat not, the
Juke that Nissan has been teasing. Instead, this is the Nismo treated Juke
we saw at the Chicago Auto Show in February. If you're disappointed, or if
the unusual confluence of shapes that is the Juke has made you throw up a
little in your mouth, don't watch.
Calling the Juke's styling "not everyone's cup of tea" (as one person I met
put it) or even "polarizing" hardly begins to describe what's going on
here. My week with Nissan's smallest crossover in America was filled with
awkward stares, gaping mouths and looks of revulsion. But that's not the
whole story. For every 10 people that wanted to run the Juke out-of-town
like villagers wielding pitchforks, there were two or three that thought it
was fantastic looking. No, cross that, they wanted to bear the Juke's
children. That's how far they went. This makes the Juke the most polarizing
car design I have seen. Yes, I'm including the unholy Aztec and Rendezvous.
However you feel about the Juke's design, you have to admit it took some
brass balls to design it, produce it, and then keep selling it.
Because the base Juke wears a starting MSRP of $18,990, my expectations
were low. If you keep your expectations at a similarly realistic level,
you'll be pleasantly surprised. For $22,990 the Nismo version adds heavily
bolstered Alcantara sport seats, a leather and Alcantara wrapped steering
wheel, center arm rest, red tachometer, plenty of Nismo badges and
red-stitching galore. Unfortunately, the standard hard plastic dashboard
and the world's least attractive headliner remain. Seriously, this has to
be the same material the trunk liner in a Versa is crafted from, how much
would it have cost for something out of the Altima? On the flip side, you
have to keep reminding yourself that 27-large is as expensive as any Juke
gets and the Nismo tops out at $26,460 with navigation, the CVT and AWD.
That's well below the average new car transaction price in America.
The Alcantara thrones are some of the most attractive (and best bolstered)
seats you can find for under $30,000, but they still ride on the same 6-way
manual driver's and 4-way passenger's seat frames as the regular Juke. This
means the range of motion is limited and lumbar support is non-existent.
Still, one must have perspective and you'll find the same situation in most
cars this price. I was disappointed to find that the Juke's steering wheel
doesn't telescope making it hard for me to find an idea driving position.
Before the Juke arrived I had spent a week in the 2013 BMW X6M (our reviews
are obviously out of order). Having the Nismo and an X6M back to back may
sound like a real let down, but there's another side. Obviously the Juke
doesn't handle or accelerate like an M, but there is something of the
personality that struck me. No, I'm not just talking about the X6 being
similarly polarizing in the style department, I'm talking on the road
personality. They are similarly "eager." In this way, the Juke reminded me
of a small dog that thinks it's a big dog. It even has a chihuahua's eyes.
Is that good or bad? Good seeing as the Juke costs about 1/4th the price. I
managed a 7.45 second 0-60 dash in the 6-speed manual model, let's just say
the X6M didn't get there in 1/4th the time.
It gets a bit more complicated. You see, the Juke is two kinds of animal.
If you get the 6-speed manual transmission you get plenty of torque steer,
slick shifts and a more engaging ride. (And for some reason torque steer
makes me smile when it's on a small-scale like this.) If you get the AWD
Nismo, you're stuck with Nissan's CVT. I'm no CVT hater but even I have to
admit the CVT dulls the Juke's personality. On the flip side, the torque
vectoring AWD system makes the CVT/AWD Nismo the faster car on the track by a reasonable
margin. If you have an oddly shaped place in your heart for Nissan's
over-styled crossover, you have a difficult decision on your hands. Either
way the Juke is destined to be one of the rarer vehicles on American roads
and I get the impression that's just how lovers and haters of the Juke like

Nissan Juke Nismo are three of the newest and sportiest hatchback cars that
you can buy today. The 2013 Ford Focus ST represents a best of Ford's
American and European performance team while the Golf R is the top Golf
that you can buy in America. And while the 2013 Nissan Juke Nismo is just a
little bit more powerful than the regular Juke it also represents the
sportiest 5 door car that Nissan currently builds. So of course we wanted
to know which of these hot hatchbacks is the fastest from 0-60 MPH at a

In Giappone il "takumi" è il maestro artigiano, il cui livello di
competenza è elevatissimo.
Nella Fabbrica Nissan di Yokohama, sono solo 4 uomini a potersi fregiare di
questo titolo e autorizzati a vedere il loro nome sul modello più iconico
del marchio: la leggendaria GT -R.
Izumi Shioya, Nobumitsu Gozu, Tsunemi Oyama, ed il loro capo Takumi
Kurosawa -- che insieme mettono in campo più di 100 anni di esperienze
maturate in fabbrica -- sono i quattro artigiani che costruiscono
manualmente i motori biturbo VR38 e
costituiscono l'orgoglio dello stabilimento e di tutta la Nissan.
Yokohama ha prodotto oltre 35 milioni di motori nell'arco dei quasi 80 anni
di storia di Nissan ed il piccolo team d'eccellenza è conscio del proprio
ruolo storico e delle responsabilità che deve assumers
