Default Stig and the GTR

I know most of you for some reason don't like the GTR, but here is the Stig taking it around the track

No audio (at work), but it looked alright. The rear end looks like it wants to come out under braking, and the car "looked" like it was trying to be heavy in the turns.

Sick time. Still don't like it. I'm going to beat this dead horse again. It's just too damn easy to drive fast. Too many electronic nannies. Fugly too.

Which part are we imagining...the incredible speed and handling or how incredibly fast the warranty will be voided?

Every time you think about racing a GTR, God voids a warranty.

transmission is still a sissybox for people with no coordination and it's still ugly.



Nissan- We make cars, we put buttons in cars. Push the button and we void your warranty.

but honestly how is a meathead owning one of these any different than a meathead owning a Zo6? Neither of them will hit the car's potential, just a wall

I'm one of the minority then, I don't think it's fugly and I think it's brilliant. The warranty thing will be its undoing amongst the crowd who would actually use it to its full potential.
