Let me preface this video by saying that there’s a reason that the 2012 BMW M5 keeps getting compared to Nissan’s insanely good GT-R. First off both cars pump out similar power; the BMW, 552 hp and the GT-R, 542 hp. The BMW makes it’s power by way of a twin-turbo V8 and the GT-R a twin-turbo V6. Both cars have four usable seats and as grand touring cars they both excel above and beyond what’s expected. This is where the comparison gets a little foggy however. You see the GT-R is a knife edge performance sports car, whereby the M5 is a super saloon. They’re both amazing at what they do, however they do it in different ways. DRIVE’s Chris Harris recently jumped behind the wheel of both cars to not only give his impressions, but to go over the ins and outs of two of the world’s best automobiles.

    I think Chris Harris put it best. Are they similar enough that you might put them close to each other? Yes. Are they rivals? Hell no.

    All in all, a good video. Thanks for posting.
