Like a rollercoaster ride
February 16, 2019
The one I test drove was broken in enough to use launch control (apparently when new you can’t use for a few months while breaking in motor, inspections etc...) I’ve had the extreme good fortune, as someone in the insurance business that specializes in high end vehicles, to be allowed by my clients to drive their amazing cars. I’ve taken everything from M cars to to a Ferrari 458 Italia, 2 Lambos (aventador and huracan) corvette, been in but didn’t drive r-35 Nismo so no launch control was performed, 3 vipers and about 6 or 7 variations of Porsche 911, one the GT3R not RS but still a beast and my semiconductor favourite to the GTR and GTR Nismo. The reason I list all the above is because none of them compare to to get up and go you get from the launch control on the GTR, it just amazes me that that 4 seater rather large and comparatively heavy GTR easily outperformed all the above (except the Nismo, I’m sure it’s faster). Save for the M cars and the vipers it’s easily minimum 100k less expensive as well, 300k in certain circumstances. I never understood what they hype was about. But now I’m converted, I’m going to buy one as soon as I sell my house, my wife agreed lol, (I do take care of her family) one of my clients convinced me to make that decision, explaining that the older you get the less likely you are to to enjoy the vehicle for what it was meant for. Apparently you can have this vehicle forever and it has more tuning and aftermarket options than any other super car. Can’t wait.
