BMW M5 vs Nissan GT-R

If you’re Nissan then the odds of you doting like a proud poppa over your now adolescent son GT-R are pretty damn good. I mean let’s face it, every time a new super car comes out it’s immediately compare to it. When released back in 2008 the GT-R took the automotive world by surprise. I mean sure everyone assumed it was going to be a force to be reckoned with, but I doubt they thought it was going to be THE force. Recently Autocar took BMW’s new M5 super sedan and pitted it against the GT-R, and even though we can probably all guess the outcome, you’ve got to admit that it’s still fun to watch car after car get its ass handed to them by Nissan’s mighty Godzilla.

    Why would you even compare these two? Sure, they both have insanely powerful turbocharged engines,and some other performance figuresare similar, but beyond that, wheres the resemblance? Ones a luxury sedan, and the other is a sports coupe. Of course the GT-R is gonna have more grip and better stopping. Compare the M5 To a new CTS-V or the GT-R to the last generation 911 Turbo S

    One of the reasons I don’t like autocar. Their comparisons are shit.

    Every car comparison I have watched with the GT-R has been a silly affair. It is either two very different cars, ir two very different price points. The only similarity has been it’s always in the GT-R’s favor. I’d like to watch one real comparison with the GT-R. The end result will invariably be the GT-R losing because, performance per dollar, it really isn’t the best car you can buy if you are a skilled driver.

    Maybe they’re doing it just to be able to drive a GT-R lol
