GT-R v R8 v 911 v STI v Evo v Elise | Nissan GT-R v the World | Edmunds.com
We're in a 2009 Nissan GT-R, helmet on, seatbelt fastened, left foot poised
to release the brake and unleash Godzilla's wrath. But we're not on a
racetrack. In front of us there are 22 miles and 402 turns of the best
driving road in the world, Southern California's Glendora Mountain Road.
We've covered this ground thousands of times, but today it's different.
Today there are two California Highway Patrol cruisers stationed at either
end of this twisting strip of sun-drenched blacktop. It is our personal
playground for the afternoon.
The radio crackles the "All clear" and with the GT-R's engine revved to a
launch-controlled 4,500 rpm, we release the brake and let the big Nissan do
what it does best: twist physics into knots.
This process is repeated all afternoon in a collection of today's quickest
and most capable road cars. The list includes a 2008 Audi R8, 2008 Lotus
Elise SC, 2008 Porsche 911, 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X MR and 2008
Subaru WRX STI. We didn't discriminate: Rally cars, focused rear-drive
performance cars and everything in between was invited to the party. In
fact, there's only one genre missing from this otherwise comprehensive list
— the big-power, rear-drive supercar. But it wasn't for a lack of trying.
Fact is, we asked Chevy for a 2008 Corvette Z06 and we asked Dodge for a
2008 Viper SRT10, but both refused to loan us their cars — presumably
because we'd be testing their best metal against the almighty GT-R.
Sniff, sniff. Does somebody smell chicken?

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.
