CR Model Summary
The GT-R is the latest generation of Nissan's premium sports car, which was previously known worldwide as the Skyline GT-R. The upgraded twin-turbo V6 engine now puts out 545 hp. A NISMO version tops out at 600 hp. It drives all four wheels through a six-speed automated manual gearbox that is very jerky when driving at parking lot speeds. The car is blisteringly quick and laden with electronic gadgets, including launch control. Handling is super sharp despite the car's considerable size and weight, and the ride is quite stiff.
